Following his confrontation with Kevin Garnett after Monday’s game (that has now made Honey Nut Cheerios infamous…), Carmelo Anthony has been suspended for one game without pay, being served tonight when the Knicks play the Pacers.
“There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game,” NBA executive vice president basketball operations Stu Jackson said in a statement. “Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday’s game and therefore a suspension was warranted.”
“If you just go off the actual facts of what happened, I don’t think anything will happen,” Melo replied when asked before the announcement if he thought he deserved disciplinary action. Looks like he was wrong.
