"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

I’m with Stupid

Hall of Fame results come out today.

On an even dumber note, Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony got into it the other night at the Garden. After the game, Melo hung around outside of the Celtics locker room to continue the discussion. What did Garnett, who has a rep has a relentless trash-talker, say?

Word has it he said that Melo’s estranged wife, LaLa,tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.

How is that even a diss? Hell, that’s a compliment.

If Garnett said this I give him credit for creativity. And if someone made it up, I’ll give them the credit.

Well, if he was insinuating that he had personal knowledge of how she tastes...then I can see how it was a diss. And there are current rumors that 'Melo and LaLa are splitting up. So...

Looking at the voting results, that is a very apt picture.

1) Yeah, that was the implication, I'm sure. Still, that shit is funny.

2) Agreed.

Biggio, maybe...

6 Alex Belth   ~  Jan 9, 2013 2:22 pm

This is a family website, so I won't post the link. But you might want to consult the Urban Dictionary for the more, um, colorful definitions of "Honey Nut Cheerio", Mr. Belth.

[8] I wouldn't even dignify his comments with a notion of cleverness; he's a punk. Unlike some other Hall of Fame trash-talkers, KG would never say anything like that if he was not on a court with a bunch of other guys on his side. I'm willing to bet that's what Melo wanted to discuss with him. But of Melo was gonna do anything for real, he would have done it on the court and taken the suspension. That was likely just to mess with his head off-court.

I remember some years ago I had some disgusting remarks hurled at me online in a discussion group. I offered to meet the person face to face so he could try it again in person and he gave me his work address. I was absolutely serious about giving or taking a beating (and going to jail either way.) When I arrived, I gave the receptionist my name and said I had an appointment with said person. Five minutes later the person, who turned out to be a slight-built guy, came down all smiles and glad-handing me and acting all buddy-buddy, saying that the online rhetoric was just for show. Knowing about me from previous discussions, he offered me a role in a script he was supposedly producing.

I looked at the guy, knew I could snap him like a twig in an instant and felt nothing buy pity for him. Not worth going to jail for someone like this. I knew what he thought when he saw me and decided to sweet-talk his way out of a certain beatdown since running was no longer an option.

I had made my point, so I took the script and told him I'd get back to him. I got home and blocked all but one of his contacts, read the script (which was pure garbage) and called him back, told him I was turning the script down because it was pure garbage and hung up, never to contact or hear from him again.

My point is, although the media made such a big deal out of it, it's really not. KG is known for this kind of behavior; textbook cowardly bully scenario, but if it were that deep, somebody would have seriously hurt him or taken him out long before this. He's gonna make people mad, but being under a media microscope as all athletes are, Melo did enough to "man-up" without jeopardizing his career or life. And on the streets, the only place where this kind of thing holds weight, Melo can walk with his head up.
