Carmelo Anthony has been suspended one game without pay for confronting Kevin Garnett in the arena tunnel, near the players’ locker rooms, and in the parking garage after Monday’s game.

Do you think Melo deserves the punishment?!  Full report after the jump, then let us know your take on the situation…


According to  Ian Begley at

The NBA announced the suspension Wednesday. Anthony will serve the suspension Thursday when the Knicks take on the Indiana Pacers.

“There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game,” NBA executive vice president basketball operations Stu Jackson said in a statement. “Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday’s game and therefore a suspension was warranted.”

Anthony has said that he did not believe he deserved to be suspended.

“If you just go off the actual facts of what happened, I don’t think anything will happen,” Anthony said.
