Im shock he got one game instead a huge fine!!

If you look at the game check he's not going to be collecting, they're essentially the same thing.

The league def needed to punish him. They had to send a message that it's not ok to try and fist fight after the game in the parking lot high school style.

The NBA has suspended New York's Carmelo Anthony one game for confrontation with Kevin Garnett.

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA

"There are no circumstance in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game," NBA's Stu Jackson said in statement

Stu Jackson should google 'Randolph', 'Perkins', and 'lockerroom'.

Melo would've had just a fine if he had avoided the bus. Just dumb.

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!
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 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.
Oh for sure KG is like that and will always be :D

I'm talking off the court he will probably clear up anything bad between him and Carmelo and want to enjoy his weekend and maybe last All Star game who knows seems like he'd be the more mature one that's for sure

Let's kick this thread alive for another day; Doc has spoken on the subject now:

"Well, No. 1, I know what's been reported did not happen," Rivers said adamantly during his weekly interview on Boston sports radio station WEEI. "I know that as a fact."


Pressed further on Garnett's rumored remarks, Rivers said: "That did not happen."

Indeed. But he didn't have to say what he did, that it didn't happen. There are other ways to defend his guy. He did something similar with the "cancer patient" thing:

Quote
Garnett, known as a trash talker, stuck to his usual routine and did not speak to the media before Wednesday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

He did issue a statement before the game.

“I am aware there was a major miscommunication regarding something I said on the court last night. My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in fact: You are cancerous to your team and our league,’” Garnett said. “I would never be insensitive to the brave struggle that cancer patients endure. I have lost loved ones to this deadly disease and have a family member currently undergoing treatment. I would never say anything that distasteful. The game of life is far bigger than the game of basketball.”

After Boston’s overtime victory over the Bucks, he was asked about his emotions on the court the past two games, but not specifically about Villanueva’s tweet. He also drew a technical along with Andrew Bogut in Boston’s 105-102 victory.

“I’m a passionate player,” he said. “If you don’t like the way I am … I play this way the last 15, 16 years. I leave it on the court.”

One of Villanueva’s tweets read: “KG called me a cancer patient, I’m (mad) because, u know how many people died from cancer, and he’s tossing it like it’s a joke.”

Rivers defended his forward while wondering why someone would need to share in-game comments.

“I actually heard what Kevin said. I was right there, what he really said is in the statement. I’m going to leave it at that,” he said. “I don’t like the whole tweeting thing. I’m going to state that as well. Guys talk on the court. It doesn’t mean they should or shouldn’t. The fact that we’re talking about this, it’s just silly. It really is. We had a hell of a game yesterday and we should be talking about basketball.

“Talking about what the guys said during the game, there isn’t a place. I don’t find a place for it.”

Surprise KG didnt get fined b/c he plays for the Celtics!!
Why would he fine him for being on the Celtics?

How many times can you ignore events like this in order to push a fantasy that the league hates the Celtics?
