Found May 03, 2013 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
Back in January, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett made the term “Honey Nut Cheerios” into a whole new thing after he spent some time trash-talking Carmelo Anthony about his wife, La La Vazquez.

Classless Knicks show their true colors

Having waited longer than he should have, the stink of his performance still lingering at Madison Square Garden, Carmelo Anthony appeared at last clad in black and wearing a smile as false and empty as his game.

However, the grizzled Celtics veteran continues to give epic interviews after games.”We out here scrappin,” said Garnett after he lead his Celtics back from the dead with a 16-point, 18-rebound game to defeat the New York Knicks 92-86. Garnett then made some pretty fantastic construction metaphors to describe what...

Celtics Showing J.R. Smith, Carmelo Anthony That Teamwork Will Win Out If Knicks Give Them Opening

What the Celtics have needed all season is to come together as a team, to move the ball and make the most of their talent, to not fall into ruts where other teams can feast on their weaknesses. For many stretches this year, the Celtics could not do that. Then, even after they discovered how to play in such a way after losing Rajon Rondo to a season-ending injury, they stumbled again...

Jordan Crawford continues taunting Carmelo Anthony, clearly not a representation of the Boston Celtics!

I've found myself questioning why Danny Ainge would bring Jordan Crawford to Boston. The Boston Celtics are a franchise that prides themselves on great players who take responsibility for their actions both on, and off the court. As the Celtics made a decision to stay away from the pompous taunting tirades of their immature opponents, the seldom used Jordan Crawford shows his...

Carmelo Anthony shrugs off beef with Crawford, doesn't go chasing down buses this time

Carmelo on Jordan Crawford: "I’m not thinking about no Jordan Crawford. ... I don’t even think he deserves for you to be typing right now" — Howard Beck (@HowardBeckNYT) May 2, 2013 I guess Carmelo learned something from last time. Personally I prefer the Knicks to be the talkers and the Celtics to get stuff done on the court, so I'm not a big fan of Crawford...

Ticket to Game Six

With the clock ticking down and the Knicks climbing back into the game, Kevin Garnett showed a series of pump fakes, got airspace from Tyson Chandler, and made a deep two point jumper to put Boston ahead by seven with 48 seconds to go.

Trash talk, bad blood reign in NBA playoffs

(Eds: Adds details and quotes. With AP Photos.) By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Basketball Writer Talk is cheap in these NBA playoffs, and it seems as if everyone wants in on the act.
