On the eve of the Knicks’ rematch with the Celtics, Carmelo Anthony talked with media about facing Kevin Garnett again since the big altercation. The game takes place tomorrow night at 8p and you can be sure that a lot of people will be watching TNT to see what happens.
Check out what Melo had to say after the jump…
According to Ian Begley at Special to ESPNNewYork.com:
Carmelo Anthony says he has no problem with Boston big man Kevin Garnett.
“It’s no bad blood, no grudges between us (or) anything like that,” Anthony said after practice on Wednesday. “I don’t hold no grudges or have any bad blood towards the guy.”
The Knicks will play the Celtics in Boston on Thursday for the first time since trash talk on the court between Garnett and Anthony on Jan. 7 at Madison Square Garden led to a confrontation off the court. Anthony was suspended for his role in pursuing Garnett to the Celtics bus.
In addition to playing against one another on Thursday, Garnett and Anthony will share the floor at the NBA All-Star Game in Houston on Feb. 17. Both are starters for the Eastern Conference.
Anthony doesn’t anticipate any carryover from his confrontation with Garnett.
“On my end, there’s nothing left over,” he said on Tuesday.
Anthony complimented Garnett on his All-Star bid, the 15th of the Celtics star’s career.
“At this stage of his career to get another All-Star nod, and starting at that, that just says a lot about him,” Anthony said Wednesday.
