La La Defends Carmelo Anthony’s Honor (As Well As Her Own) During NBA Playoffs

Looks like La La Anthony will need a few more courtside looks for her current Boston trip, as her husband Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks blew a chance to advance to the next round of the NBA playoffs with a 92-86 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday night. But it’s not just the team’s failure to capitalize on an opportunity, or the roars of the TD Bank Garden crowd that have people talking hours later: Honey Nut Cheerios are back.

Remember back in January, when Carmelo and Celtics’ star Kevin Garnett got into a scuffle on the court? Reports claimed that KG taunted the Knicks’ star with lewd comments about La La–specifically that she “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.” Carmelo waited for Garnett after the game, a few breakfast cereal jokes were made, and the next thing we knew La La’s Full Court Life Season Three had premiered and the Knicks were atop the Atlantic Division. Last night’s underwhelming showing by Melo and Co. was marked by another round of Celtics smack talk, this time from Jordan Crawford. According to Gothamist, Crawford approached Anthony after the game and said, “that motherf–ker f–ked your wife.” Considering he recorded zero minutes of playing time Wednesday night, could this be his one chance at minor fame during the 2013 Playoffs? Maybe not. “Not me. You’d better go talk to someone who was there,” Crawford told reporters.

Carmelo and his teammates brushed the incident off, and with Kiyan, Po, Dice, and Detective Benson pulling her in all kinds of directions, La La has no time to talk about anything but business. Check out the pointed photo she posted on Instagram this afternoon:

But it’s truly the caption that speaks volumes: “Try again. You on the bench for a reason.” A strong woman and a knowledgeable sports fan? This is truly the woman of your dreams.
