The NBA has made its decision on the punishment for the incident that took place between Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony after Monday night’s Celtics/Knick game, according to the Associated Press. Carmelo didn’t think he would be suspended, but NBA discipline czar, Stu Jackson, thought differently. Jackson said in a statement:
There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game. Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday’s game and therefore a suspension was warranted.
Anthony will miss Thursday night’s game against the Indiana Pacers. How much is this going to cost Melo? $176,700.
