Found January 25, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
The bad blood between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett didn’t last long. Last night the New York Knicks beat the Boston Celtics 89-86. After a verbal spat and a bus showdown with 20 something security guards on standby, desperate measures were put into place to ensure another Honey Nut Cheerio saga wouldn’t transpire. However last night was the polar opposite. Maybe they’re working on their relationship considering they’ll be teammates during All Stars, or perhaps Garnett is keeping all of his anger pinned up for the return of Ray Allen and the Miami Heat. Regardless of the reason both men are ready to move pass the incident. “No grudges between me and KG. Whatever happened, happened. We spoke about it and its over.” Carmelo responded to last night game as he should have during the first match up between the two teams. He silenced the Boston Celtics and Kevin Garnett by showing up late in the stretch and helping his team get another win. After the game he even signed a box of Honey Nut Cheerios and took a picture with the box for a fan. I’m glad to see him be a good sport about it instead of following the fan to his car with 20 security guards to talk it out.
