Kevin Garnett allegedly trash-talked Carmelo Anthony’s wife Last night after the Boston Celtics victory over the New York Knicks, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony attempted to confront Celtics forward Kevin Garnett both at the Celtics’ locker-room and the Celtics team-bus. A lot of speculation over what it was about, with a lot of it believing that Carmelo Anthony simply took offense to the physical play of Kevin Garnett and wanted to express his disdain for it. Perhaps it was something more, though. A juicy rumor broke on Tuesday morning about what exactly was said between Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony. The rumor is that KG told ‘Melo that his wife LaLa tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios. Has anyone confirmed this? What LaLa tastes like that is — CelticsLife.com (@CelticsLife) January 8, 2013 Now, we need to make it clear right away. This is a rumor and probably purely speculative about what some random Joe in the fifth row overheard during a screaming match during the game. Also remember, however, that Kevin Garnett’s “You’re a cancer patient” was a rumor before becoming what Kevin Garnett actually told Charlie Villanueva during a game last season. It would not shock me if Kevin Garnett actually said that about Carmelo Anthony’s wife. Kevin Garnett is one of the leagues greatest trash-talkers and has been throughout his entire career and if this is true, this is one of the best pieces of trash talk I have heard. Name me one person who would even think about using something along those lines as a diss at another player? I can’t think of anyone else. Clearly it worked because Anthony missed twenty shots and he got so upset that he didn’t want to settle it on the court in two and a half weeks. In other news, Bill Simmons wife tastes like frosted flakes. My wife tastes like Frosted Flakes. — Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) January 8, 2013
