Carmelo brought extra security to the game because he was worried about the Celtics fans. The Celtics themselves wanted to make sure the taunts against Melo were as PG as possible.
If you tried to get into the Garden with a box of Honey Nut Cheerios, you were in for a rude awakening.

Just spoke with a security guard at TD Garden who confirms the staff was told to confiscate any signs with reference to Honey Nut Cheerios.

I think that is a bit much, unless they thought fans might throw the boxes on the court. Either way, this isn’t going away anytime soon. Similar to how Manti Te’o will be forever taunted about his fake dead cancer girlfriend, Melo is going to have to deal with the Honey Nut Cheerios taunts.
No matter how many denials people will tell you, KG knows that is what he said and it certainly had its intended affect on Carmelo.
I wonder if Lala was sending these leaked photos to KG?
