Carmelo Anthony will most likely be hearing from NBA commissioner David Stern in the next day or so after losing his cool following a game between his New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics last night at Madison Square Garden in New York..
During the 4th quarter of the game, Anthony and Kevin Garnett got tangled up under the basket. The two players jawed at each other as they walked back up the court. Each player was hit with a technical foul call by the referees, but the incident didn't stop there.
After the game Anthony went to the Celtics locker room to continue talking trash to Garnett according to the Associated Press.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers spoke about the locker room incident after the game.
"I'm going to let you all figure that one out. I'm going to stay out of that," Rivers said. "If it was the playoffs I'd tell on him, but since it's not I'm going to just be quiet."
After his visit to the Celtics locker room, Anthony was still angry and went to wait for Garnett by the Celtics team bus.
"Five NYPD officers, MSG security and Mike Woodson were near the bus to make sure the scene did not get out of control, the New has learned," Frank Isola of the New York Daily News wrote on Twitter. "According to the eyewitness, Garnett didn't understand why Carmelo was waiting for him near the bus."
The Celtics left in their team bus without further incident. It's likely Anthony will receive a suspension or be fined by the league.
