The last time the Celtics and Knicks met, it was Kevin Garnett who may have needed some personal protection from Carmelo Anthony. This time, the New York star is ensuring his own safety.
Anthony will bring his own bodyguard with him for Thursday’s matchup at the TD Garden, according to the New York Daily News. The reasoning Anthony’s employing the extra security detail is not because he’s worried about running into Garnett in the building, but rather being concerned about overzealous Boston sports fans.
“That’s basically what we’re going to get,” said teammate Raymond Felton. “We know it’s going to be hostile. There’s going to be a lot of crazy things thrown at us. … Not objects but words.”
Earlier this month at Madison Square Garden, Anthony waited for Garnett by the Celtics’ team bus, reportedly perturbed at something Garnett said during his trash talk in Boston’s 102-96 victory. Although Anthony claimed he just wanted to talk to the Celtics’ forward, he was nonetheless fined b

Throughout the Celtics latest losing streak, there seems to be a lot of reflection going on within the team's locker room. A few days ago it was Doc Rivers questioning how bad the team 'wants it' and threatening to get rid of players if the team doesn't start winning. Last night Paul Pierce questioned the team's mental toughness. Among those currently in a state...
The Knicks employ two security guards that are with the team at all times while Carmelo Anthony's bodyguard occasionally travels to road games.
BOSTON -- The first meeting between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett since their nasty encounter on Jan. 7 in New York turned into just another night of misery for the floundering Celtics. Anthony, suspended for a game for going out to the Boston bus after Garnett's alleged comments, scored 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the New York Knicks to a 89-86 victory...
The rumor spreading around after the Celtics defeated the Knicks back in New York was that Kevin Garnett told Carmelo his wife tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios. This provoked Melo to wait outside the team bus to confront Garnett, an act he was later suspended for.
