Now that the dust has settled on the Carmelo Anthony/Kevin Garnett feud that went down at The Garden on Monday, the NBA responded to Anthony's post-game actions with a one-game suspension without pay for "confronting Boston's Kevin Garnett in the arena tunnel, near the players' locker rooms, and in the parking garage."
In a statement, NBA executive vice president Stu Jackson said the following:
"There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game. Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday's game and therefore a suspension was warranted."
Anthony will most likely serve his suspension on Thursday when the Knicks take on the Indiana Pacers.
