Yep, we’re back to the Honey Nut Cheerios story. Lol. La La Anthony has written & is currently promoting her first book, The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex, and Happiness (congrats to her, I can wait to check it out). In the book she talks about the whole drama between her hubby Carmelo Anthony & Kevin Garnett. She still doesn’t reveal what was exactly said (c’mon La!), but she does give some details as to what happened that night. Check it out…
“I wasn’t ever going to bring up the Honey Nut Cheerios incident again. But, since I’m writing this book, I might as well set the record straight for good,’’ LaLa wrote in her book “The Love Playbook’’ released Tuesday. “Kevin Garnett in fact had never said that I tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios. I tried to figure out how this big lie was turned into a media firestorm. I still can’t answer that one. … Melo and Kevin are cool today. And now it’s nothing but a faint memory.’’
That said, Garnett’s trashtalking was damaging. LaLa revealed Anthony had choice words for Garnett on the court and then afterward when Anthony confronted him near the locker room area and by the Celtics team bus. (Anthony was suspended one game for the off-court confrontations.)
LaLa had attended the game.
“I did notice during the game Melo and Kevin were jawing a lot at each other,’’ she wrote. “But that’s basketball, the heat of the game. I really didn’t think anything of it. But when Melo went to have words with him, I knew it had to be more than an in-game beef.
“I asked Melo about it and all he said was that Kevin said things you shouldn’t say to a person you have a friendship with or respect for. [Melo] told him, ‘I’m not some rookie. We’ve been in this league a while together so don’t treat me the way you’d treat a rookie.’ I’m sure the words were a little stronger than that but that was the gist of what Melo said back to Kevin.’’
