Was Carmelo Anthony Defending La La’s Honor Against Kevin Garnett?

Rumors fly about what caused the fight between Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony

Y’all know that sports things usually go way over our head here at VH1 Celebrity, and when it comes to gossip surrounding the love lives of VH1′s own stars, we bow down to the expertise of Liz Black at VH1 Blog. But we couldn’t stay silent about the stories swirling around the words exchanged between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett during and after the Celtics-Knicks game at MSG on Monday night. The stars had to be separated on court, and following the Knicks’ loss, Melo contradicted his nickname, yelling at Garnett outside the locker room and as the Celtics boarded their bus. What’s caught our attention this morning is the contents of Garnett’s insult, which Anthony categorized as “something you just don’t say to men, another man.”

What was this indecent comment? According to Black Sports Online, several sources confirmed that the Celtic said Carmelo’s wife La La Anthony “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”

OK, so we never heard how he said this, and we’re not going dip into a discussion of why — other than the fact that KG is a notoriously mean trash-talker. But we would just like to offer Carmelo and La La a nicer way of looking at this situation: Honey Nut Cheerios are basically the best-tasting cereal EVER. If someone wanted to insult you, he’d probably compare you to, say, Grape Nuts or off-brand Rice Krispies. We all wish we could taste like Honey Nut Cheerios. We’d also take Honey Bunches of Oats or Froot Loops, if Cheerios are now off-limits.

Please excuse us now as we go forage for second breakfast.
