Iman Shumpert has sat with Vladtv and opened up about Carmelo Anthony confronting Kevin Garnett for saying “S*** My D***”.
According to Vlad;
Iman Shumpert talked about the infamous confrontation between Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony, citing KG as telling Melo “suck my d**k” at one point.
He also described his own run-in with KG and why he considers the “Big Ticket” to be the most vicious trash-talker he’s ever played against.
The fight is most known for KG allegedly saying Carmelo Anthony’s wife at the time LaLa tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.
What you might not have heard is Carmelo was ready to beat up another fan for talking about his wife LaLa until Embiid stepped in.
“Some things were said,” Anthony said after the game. “Unacceptable. I’m cool with fans heckling, fans talking trash, cheering for their team, booing the other team, I’m all for that, but when you cross certain lines, as a man, you just, that’s what you’re going to see. That’s what you’re going to get, as you saw there.”
Shortly afterward, Anthony got into another altercation around the baseline and tunnel area near the Sixers’ bench. Joel Embiid broke up that altercation.
This time, a fan said something about Anthony’s ex-wife, La La Anthony.
“I’m not sure [what happened],” Embiid said. “I was just trying to calm the situation down because they kept going back and forth, and I really just wanted to go home and finish the game. That’s why I wanted to calm the situation down so we can just play and move on.”
I am all for trash-talking, but you know when you are saying racist things. You also should know families should be off-limits as well. You can’t expect Carmelo to keep his cool about being called a boy and people speaking about Honey Nut Cheerios and him allegedly having babies on his wife. That is crossing the lines and fans should know that.
