The Other Paper:
Carmelo Anthony's wife Lala reportedly tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios according to Kevin Garnett but one flaky fan in Minnesota sounds like he is just plain nuts.
Anthony was confronted by a trash-talking Timberwolves fan — while entering the Target Center Friday night — who harassed the Knicks star about Garnett. The obsessed man taunted Anthony about his Celtics rival and followed Anthony into the Knicks' locker room, according to The New York Post.
Where are James Dolan and his audio recording devices when you really need them?
The fan reportedly snuck by security when the Knicks players filed into the arena. He yelled at Anthony, "KG, KG. You don't know who Kevin Garnett is?"
A startled Anthony shouted back, "Why are you following me? Why are you following me?" before slipping into the locker room.
The Fruit Loopy fan was immediately kicked out of the building by the arena and Knicks security but was not arrested.
Garnett — who played 12 seasons in Minnesota — and Anthony engaged in a widely publicized trash talking incident at Madison Square Garden last month in which KG reportedly made the flavorful comment about Anthony's wife. The two players had to separated after Anthony waited for Garnett outside the arena after the game.
Anthony ended up shredding the T'wolves for 36 point in the Knicks 100-94 win.
