|NBABrothers Thoughts & Theories||
On Monday, when the Knicks were facing the Celtics at the Garden, Jared Sullinger drove the lane and got stripped. It ended up being the Knicks ball. Sounds normal, right? Nope. As soon as that happened, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett started talking crazy trash to each other. It was not the first time in the game that that had happened. It was, however, the first time that the refs had reacted to it.
The ref called a double technical. One on Carmelo, and one on KG. Carmelo during the game, said that he would see Kevin Garnett after the game. And he was not kidding! He was at the Celtics bus after the game trying to find Kevin Garnett. Garnett eventually came, and they both began, once again, to talk trash. Now, the NBA gave Carmelo a one game suspension because he went to the Celtics bus and tried to find KG. However, the NBA did not give Kevin Garnett a suspension. Here is what I tweeted when I first heard he got suspended...
In my opinion, I absolutely agree that Carmelo should be suspended, but I think that KG should have been suspended as well. I mean, even though Carmelo started it, they both kept it up. So, shouldn’t they both have suspensions?? Anyway, that is the past. The game that Carmelo is going to be suspended for is the game against the Pacers on January 10th at 7:30 PM. This is a game that I would not want Carmelo to miss, but you have to pay the price.
So, Carmelo should not have gone to the Celtics bus to talk with KG. It’s simple, he shouldn’t have done it. I love how he shows that he has so much passion for the game, but he needs to keep it on the court, not off the court. It was really not a good move for him, the sport of basketball, and the NBA. It really is just unnecessary. Anyway, I hope the Knicks can prevail in the game, Thursday, against the Pacers. Knicks against Pacers, no Melo, no Felton. GOOD LUCK NEW YORK KNICKERBOCKERS!!!
