Carmelo Anthony Suspended One Game For Altercation with Kevin Garnett

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.
