According to the New York Daily News, Carmelo Anthony will be accompanied by his own personal bodyguard when his Knicks meet the Kevin Garnett, and his Boston Celtics Thursday night at 8 p.m.
It is not uncommon for superstar players, Kobe Bryant for example, to have their own security detail. The Knicks employ two security guards that are with the team at all times while Anthony’s bodyguard occasionally travels to road games.
Thursday’s nationally televised Knicks-Celtics game is the first meeting between the teams since Jan. 7 when Anthony, reportedly upset that Garnett made a disparaging comment about his wife, confronted the Boston forward outside the Celtics team bus. The NBA suspended Anthony one game for his actions.
nthony said he and Celtics forward Kevin Garnett have reconciled since sharing words outside the Celtics team bus following a Jan. 7 matchup, but it appears the Knicks don’t want to assume the Boston crowd will be very forgiving.
That’s crazy Kevin Garnett starts the fight, but Carmelo needs a bodyguard….where do they do that at??
