Carmelo Anthony's wife, LaLa, speaks about Honey Nut Cheerios incident

We’ve heard from Carmelo Anthony. We’ve heard from Kevin Garnett. But we’ve never heard from Anthony’s wife, LaLa Anthony in regards to the infamous Honey Nut Cheerios incident.

As you may recall, just over a year ago, Carmelo Anthony confronted Kevin Garnett after a game between Melo’s Knicks and Garnett’s then Boston Celtics. Many wondered what exactly went down and Carmelo eventually came out and said Garnett went ‘too far’ with his trash talking and suggested there are just some things you don’t say to another man.

Rumors alleged that Garnett, a notorious trash talker, had made a sexual comment about LaLa Anthony that involved the taste of popular cereal Honey Nut Cheerios.

But LaLa kept mum on the subject – until now.

“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,’’ La La writes. “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.’’

The basketball wife continues on and explains the story in more detail, going on to suggest she noticed the two jawing during the game but wasn’t sure what had caused the conflict.
