NEW YORK – In the wake of an incident between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett that resulted in Anthony’s suspension, the Knicks recorded all in-game conversations between the forward and players around him Friday against the Bulls, a league source has confirmed. Owner James Dolan ordered Madison Square Garden technicians to place two microphones on opposite ends of the court, a move league sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard was put in place in order to protect Anthony. The Knicks were trying to ascertain whether other players were going overboard in their trash talking against Anthony, sources told Broussard.
Oh my god! This is AWESOME! Like I knew that KG dominated Carmelo mentally, physically and emotionally the other night, but even I didn’t know it was this bad. That the Knicks have resorted to taping everything his opponents says to him from now on so he doesn’t get his feelings hurt anymore. That Carmelo is curled up in the fetal position sucking his thumb begging James Dolan not to make him go back out on the court. Seriously how amazing is this? Like is this a guy you’d want on your team? A guy you want in a foxhole with you? Somebody who is so mentally weak that his owner has to try and stop his opponents from saying mean things to him? How old are you Carmelo? How much money do you make? You need daddy to protect you from all the meanies in the NBA? BAHAHAHAH! Knicks basketball….It’s fantastic!
UDDATE – This is the guy following Carmelo around. Literally. Only the Knicks!
