Boston Celtics fans were chanting "Honey Nut Cheerios" for New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony during the first quarter of Friday night's Game 6 at the TD Garden.
The chant was in reference to a comment that Kevin Garnett allegedly made to Carmelo about his wife during a game at Madison Square Garden back in January.
Carmelo led the Knicks with 21 points and also grabbed 7 rebounds to help them defeat the Celtics 88-80 and win the playoff series 4 games to 2.

Oh Boston Celtics fans. In the first quarter of Friday night’s Game 6 match up, the Celtics fans started a chant trying to get into the head of Knicks star Carmelo Anthony. Yes, those were “Honey Nut Cheerios” chants you heard. In the end though, it didn’t even matter Knicks finally move on to round two of the playoffs after 13 years.
The Knicks almost blew the lead in...
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.
Flash-forward to today, Celtics fans decided to serenade Carmelo with those exact words as he made his way to the Knicks bench area during game six of their first-round playoff series...
Carmelo Anthony did not have a "hot spot" on the floor against the Celtics.
The New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers will renew their postseason rivalry beginning with Game 1 on Sunday at 3:30 ET on ABC.
This marks the seventh postseason meeting all-time between the Pacers and Knicks. The teams split the previous six meetings, 3-3.

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.
The black stood for a funeral, but not the kind he and his tacky teammates had anticipated. It was a funeral for the idea Anthony has shed his postseason underachiever&...
After Jordan Crawford allegedly made a derogatory comment about his wife LaLa, Carmelo Anthony admitted his celebrity spouse has every right to be upset over being brought up repeatedly.
"I would be upset too if I were her," Anthony said on Friday. "She always gets thrown into the mix of the Boston Celtics series. So I would be upset. She's her own person and...

Ok so when it broke this afternoon that LeBron received 120 out of 121 votes for NBA MVP, a witch hunt started to figure out who the hell voted for Carmelo Anthony.
Now we know.
It was the Miami...
New York eliminated Boston as Celtics fans chanted 'Honey Nuts Cheerios', trying to rattle Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony.
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...
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 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"

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...
