Garnett's remark resulted in an on-court scuffle and a chaotic scrum outside MSG following the game.
Kevin Garnett's reputation as a world-class trash-talker who likes to hit below the belt goes back to his days playing with the Timberwolves. To take one example, during a game against the Spurs on Mother's Day 1999, he reportedly barked "Happy Mother's Day, motherfucker!" to Tim Duncan, whose mom died of breast cancer when he was a teenager.

Nearly 14 years later, Garnett was up to his old tricks during a game in Madison Square Garden on Monday night, reportedly telling Carmelo Anthony that his wife, former MTV personality La La, "tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios."

That comment apparently prompted this on-court scuffle between Garnett and Melo, which resulted in both of them receiving technical fouls:


After the game, Melo, still upset, tried to "talk" to KG outside the Celtics' team bus. TMZ published cell phone footage of that incident this afternoon:


Yesterday, Melo said he merely wanted to "talk it out like two grown men" with KG after the game. Asked what Garnett said that had him so upset in the first place, Melo offered this response:
It's certain things that you just don't say to men, another man. I felt that he crossed the line. Like I said, we're both at an understanding right now, we handled it the way we handled it. Nobody needs to know what was said behind closed doors. So that situation is handled.
Garnett, for his part, apparently doesn't think suggesting to Melo that he's tasted his sweet-flavored wife is a big deal.

"Listen, heat of the battle, man, guys throw back and forth," Garnett said after the game. "Just what it is."

Makes us wonder what KG really said to Kevin McHale before McHale broke down in tears after an exchange with Garnett last month.

KG's an asshole.  When he was here the local media covered up for him because he was the only thing that made the Wolves relevant.  Whatever.  That's what happens.  He's a great basketball player and he's had a Hall of Fame career.  He's stated that when he retires, he plans to disappear.  I'm guessing almost everyone will be just fine with that.

Lala Anthony is annoying anyways. She probably did have an affair with KG.

I woulda been more offended if he woulda said regular Cheerios.....dry, no flavor, kinda chalky. But Honey Nut! That's a compliment.

That comment about Duncan's Mother was only a rumor, nothing backs it up as fact. Bottom line dickhead or not KG will go down as the greatest Timberwolf of all time.

Classes then and classless back is days as a TWolf. Look up KG's comment about Tim Duncan's deceased Mother on Mother's Day.

@Eric Shawn Smith Everything backs that up as fact.  Tim Duncan said it.  KG has proven year after year that he is an immature asshole.   KG treats people like shit.   This is just more of his stupid nonsense.  Plus he sucks and is overrated.  That's why he can only win an NBA championship when he is the 3rd best player on a team.

@mingtran Tim Duncan is a good person who has never been in trouble in public.  I believe him.  KG does that sort of crap all the time.  I don't believe him.
