Anthony: I wanted to talk, not fight, with Garnett
GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Carmelo Anthony says he lost his cool after Kevin Garnett said things to him that he feels shouldn't be said to "another man.''
Anthony says he sought out Garnett after the Knicks' loss to Boston on Monday night so they could discuss it. He would not elaborate on what was said.
Anthony went toward the Celtics' locker room and waited for Garnett outside the team bus. He says they talked and sorted out the matter.
They had exchanged words during the game and Anthony clearly was affected. He had a terrible shooting night and acknowledged on Tuesday that he "allowed some negativity to come into my circle.''
The NBA is investigating and has video evidence. It could decide to penalize Anthony, who says he shouldn't be suspended.
