And the bad thing is that these two will probably be starters/players on the ASG.

Talk about Chemistry issues...we might as well give Kobe, CP3 and Co the next ASG win...I'm tired of seeing the West win.

We have the regular rivalry with Wade and LeBron...NOW?

Enter Melo and KG.

Melo KNOWS better than this....whether or not we all agree with what was "allegedly" said...most NBA players know that KG talks MUCH trash.

The BEST PLAYERS EVER talked trash, too:

Jordan...Larry...

Melo will NEVER achieve much in the NBA if he allows KG (or anyone else, for that matter) to get into his head. As the Knicks best player by far - NY needs him.

The game of Basketball is mostly mental...C'mon, Melo!

He deserved it.  He attempted to get at Garnett outside the locker room and then at the bus.  A message needed to be sent.

I don't believe he just wanted to talk either.

I think the TMZ video clearly shows he didn't just want to talk it out.  One game is super light, especially for a repeat offender.

KG is too old for all this on the court he'll kill you obviously but have a feeling at the AS game he will probably be the bigger man, dap him up and tell him my bad "I'm still gonna bust your chops but wont go that far next time." They already made up supposedly.

I agree, but again, Stern loves the Knicks, and Carmelo is one of his "Superstars". There's a clear bias, whether we like it or not.

If Rondo or Garnett or anybody in the celtics did what carmelo did, were looking at 2 to 5 games suspension.

I see your point, but the day KG stops talking trash he might as well hang up his sneakers. He's ALWAYS looking for an edge - and he got one.

That Knick win was SUPER important for BOS..we now have a Chemistry-Enhancing, Momentum-Building three game winning streak.

I'm glad KG did what he thought he had to do...KG sacrificed looking good for the TEAM.

That game was important.

If KG is still playing when he's forty I'd hope he still has his edge, lol.

lol Rondo, always good for a quote:

Quote
‏@ESPNForsberg
Rajon Rondo playfully about suspension: “I get suspended for a phone hang-up and people just get away with anything in this league.”

@ESPNForsberg: Asked about being near bus when Melo was there, Rondo notes: “I didn’t want anything to happen to the big fella. I had my teammates’ back.”

‏@JCameratoNBA
"Just bc I get suspended doesn't mean I'm a bad person ... So why can't I be a peacemaker?" - Rondo on KG-Melo bus confrontation #Celtics

@JCameratoNBA "The fans still love me. They don't really judge me as much as the media does." - Rondo

Doc:

Quote
Jared Weiss ‏@CLNS_JaredWeiss

Doc on @carmeloanthony suspension: "I don’t believe a guy should ever be suspended…If you’re a fan you’re not happy with that." #Celtics

Absolutely, GF, (TP) ... totally agree with this. KG is a tough competitor, as Larry Bird was, and Larry talked as much trash as anyone in the NBA, (then or now), and backed it up, as KG does.

If Melo can't stand the heat, what the heck is he doing in the NBA?

The fact that the media and Carmelo made anything of this is just absurd, and I absolutely love that Big Ticket got inside Carmelo's head like that, and I hope he continues to do so.

The best win of the year, IMHO, for that and many other reasons.

I know from my sources that KG took him to breakfast the following morning to apologise. Melo ordered an omlet..... KG ordered honey nut cheerios......

1 game is appropriate given that nothing physical happened.

I do like how the griping has shifted from "Stern will never suspend his golden boy Melo" (which is weird enough, Melo's caused the league a fair bit of grief over the years) to "Stern would've suspended a Celtic much longer"  ::)

i think he should have recieved a 2 game suspension....it was premeditated (as the mic on the backboard support picked up on saying he would see kg after the game during a free throw), he tried to get into the locker room, and was waiting at the bus.  regardless if anything happened, he made the environment unsafe.
