Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett got into an altercation underneath Madison Square Garden last night after the Boston Celtics-New York Knicks game. Melo posted up outside the visitors’ locker room and screamed bloody murder. What got Anthony so hot and bothered?
The answer is weird.
Garnett allegedly told the Knicks star that his wife LaLa “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
If you’re sitting there thinking, “Hey, Honey Nut Cheerios are delicious, so what’s so bad about that,” allow me to link to the all-knowing Urban Dictionary to provide context.
Yes, we live in a world where “Honey Nut Cheerio” has three different accepted sexual connotations. That’s amazing.
Garnett is among the greatest trash talkers of all time, so it’s a little disappointing that this is the jab that created the ruckus. The Cheerios people, on the other hand, must be ecstatic over the free press.
