Found May 03, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Poor Carmelo Anthony. He's taken so much abuse this season. First Kevin Garnett told him his wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios. Or maybe he didn't. Anyway, then Jordan Crawford most certainly said something else not so nice about Melo's wife. Now, on top of all that. Melo's arm hurts. CSNNE: "He yanked my arm out," Anthony said of Garnett. "It felt like it came out a little bit, but it happens. It's better than I expected at this point." "I won't be thinking about. It's something that I won't be thinking about, try not to think about it. Just go out there and play." In the replay it didn't really look to me like KG did anything, but if Melo says he yanked his arm out, I guess we have to take his word for it. He is a Knick after all, they are always true to their word.

Garnett: Celtics Need Additions To Contend

Kevin Garnett, who isn't a lock to return to the Celtics next season, doesn't believe the team can contend as currently constructed. "No, I think we need some additions," Garnett said.

Carmelo Anthony vs. James Harden

credit: 4umf.com Over the past few years, both the New York Knicks and Houston Rockets believe that they got their franchise players in Carmelo Anthony and James Harden.

If you had your choice at building around...

Pacers-Knicks Preview

Carmelo Anthony likes Eastern Conference playoff basketball, even the pounding and pain that goes with it. The wide-open West was fun, with more scoring and less defense, and it certainly didn't hurt as much. But coming off his first series victory since leaving Denver - and his team's first in 13 years - he has adapted to the way it is on the other side. And here comes...

A Proud Loser

Losing, and the act of being a loser is often one of the most shameful and disappointing feelings one can feel, both as a player and a fan of that losing team. As competitors, whether it be baseball, basketball, or in the form of racing that I do myself, losing is one of the worst feelings one can endure. As the great Ricky Bobby once said, “if you ain’t first your last”. We...

Boston Celtics rally but come up short, fall to New York Knicks 88-80

I had a recap written, a morose send off to a lost season, but like so many times before the Celtics made me tear the whole thing up. When Avery Bradley stole the ball and cut the lead to four I believed, in that moment I doubted the obituary I had resigned myself to writing and though the C’s came up short I wonder what comes next.
