The rumor spreading around after the Celtics defeated the Knicks back in New York was that Kevin Garnett told Carmelo his wife tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios. This provoked Melo to wait outside the team bus to confront Garnett, an act he was later suspended for.
That rumor was obviously hilarious and, true or not, it turned into a national story, and soon after, material items.
With the Knicks coming to the TD Garden last night, it was obvious that Boston fans would use this to taunt Melo.
Obvious enough that the Garden staff was prepared for it, and prevented it from happening.
According to a Celtics official, fans brandishing posters making reference to “Honey Nut Cheerios’’ were confiscated, as were a couple of Cheerios boxes. A security guard told The Post: “Most of them were taken away when they came in.’’
Kind of hilarious that people were getting boxes of cheerios confiscated by security. It would've been great if the stadium was filled with Honey Nut Cheeri...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Throughout the Celtics latest losing streak, there seems to be a lot of reflection going on within the team's locker room. A few days ago it was Doc Rivers questioning how bad the team 'wants it' and threatening to get rid of players if the team doesn't start winning. Last night Paul Pierce questioned the team's mental toughness. Among those currently in a state...
IT'S A HONEY OF AN O
A surprising number of Cheerios-related items were confiscated by security during the Knicks-Celtics game in Boston, the first since the KG-Carmelo dustup.
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump..
Good piece this morning on KG from the NY Times’ Harvey Araton. Heading into tonight’s game with the Knicks, Melo & KG have supposedly put their squabble behind them. But we all know that with KG, anything’s...
Was going to wait until tomorrow to post this, but the hell with it. I love this video from Golden Hoops. This is a short clip entitled “Kevin Garnett: The Love For the Game”. It has the perfect blend of video & audio to capture the intense emotion and unwavering spirit of the man known as The Big Ticket.
The Boston Celtics reportedly instructed security guards not to allow Honey Nut Cheerios boxes or signs into the TD Bank Garden for the team’s game against the New York Knicks on Thursday.
The last time the teams played, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and Celtics forward Kevin Garnett got into a fight that resulted in double-technical fouls. Melo was so upset with KG he confronted...

Kevin Garnett: 24 Points, 10 Rebounds
Kevin Garnett gave us a great performance tonight, and it was unfortunately wasted. He rebounded well, shot well, and was only slowed down by fouls/minutes. He got gassed at the end, and his last two fouls were stupid...
Rondo and Garnett come together as All-Stars
The Boston Celtics have landed two players into the starting lineup of the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett will both be starting this year for the Eastern Conference.
For Rondo this will be his fourth trip to the All-star game and the first time he will be starting. In his first three appearances he has averaged...

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.
Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points and won his rematch with Kevin Garnett as the New York Knicks ended an 11-game losing streak in Boston with an 89-86 victory over the Celtics on Thursday night.
It came 17 days after a verbal clash between the All-Star forwards following Boston's 102-96 victory in New York led to Anthony's one-game suspension.
Anthony was booed frequently...
BOSTON -- The first meeting between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett since their nasty encounter on Jan. 7 in New York turned into just another night of misery for the floundering Celtics. Anthony, suspended for a game for going out to the Boston bus after Garnett's alleged comments, scored 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the New York Knicks to a 89-86 victory...
No matter what was said between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett during and after the last time the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics met, Anthony says the incident is behind him.
Thursday night's rematch in Boston simply is one between two struggling teams looking to right the ship.
On-court bickering led to technical fouls for both players in the final minutes of Boston...
