Carmelo Anthony has been suspended one game for waiting outside the Celtics' locker room and bus to confront Kevin Garnett after Monday's game in New York. The scuttlebutt around was that KG had made a comment about Melo's wife concerning Honey Nut Cheereos. But KG has denied trash talking LaLa and said that his comments were basketball related.
Rondo, witty as always, had some things to say about Melo's suspension, following his own suspension for that game.
Rajon Rondo's reaction to Melo 1-gamer: "I get suspended for a phone hang-up and people just get away with anything in his league" #Celtics

Rondo served 1 gm suspension. When told of Anthony's 1 gm suspension- "Oh my goodness, so that's the same thing, huh?" #Celtics#CelticsTalk

Asked about being near bus when Melo was there, Rondo notes: “I didn’t want anything to happen to the big fella. I had my teammates’ back.”
