Report: KG Took Cheerios Shot at Melo’s Wife, Because He Knew the Couple was Separated


Lala Anthony 2

People were wondering why Kevin Garnett would take a random shot at Carmelo Anthony’s wife. It isn’t normal for player to trash talk about someone’s wife.

Most chalked up the Honey Nut Cheerios comment to KG just being KG, but there seems to be more to it than that. According to the New York Daily News, Carmelo and his wife Lala have been going through some marital problems.

The report states that they have been separated for more two months.  With Lala taking her talents to South Beach (where she rang in the new year without Melo).

If this is true, KG was just pushing Melo’s buttons on a sensitive subject. It was bad enough if it was just random, but the fact that KG might have known how much something like that would bother Melo is even more sinister.

Fair or foul on KG’s comments?  You make the call.

Carmelo and Garnett


  1. KG is the same dude that once called an opposing player a “cancer patient” during a game. So him taking a shot at another man’s wife is not surprising. But KG’s no-limit trash talking is going to come back and bite him one day.

    • Its KG @his finest. Grow up. All the political correctness in the World won’t stop certain things from being said, its the passion for the sport. Go bake cookies if you cant handle it!

    • He also once said “Happy Mother’s Day” to Tim Duncan when he was guarding him after Tim’s mom died of cancer.

  2. So who told you that KG said anything about Cheerios. I think you made that up. You didn’t even cite a source and now the whole world believes you. Time to get off momma’s computer and get a real job, sir.

    • I agree there hasn’t been any other source to confirm this story and I believe its irresponsible to continue to report without a confirmed source

  3. Define “separated”. I clearly saw LaLa sitting behind the backboard during this game. I think KG is getting a little too much credit. I doubt he knew or cared that they are separated….if that’s actually true.
