Carmelo Anthony: Don’t Believe Everything You Hear

Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony vowed two days earlier he wouldn’t get another technical the rest of the season.

So what did Anthony have to say when he picked up yet another one in the fourth quarter Thursday?

“Don’t believe everything you hear,’’ Anthony said.

The technical was Anthony’s 14th of the season, meaning just two more would land him a mandatory one-game suspension. With six games left in the season, Anthony’s margin for error is lessening.

Karl said his star had been “alerted’’ about where he stands, and Anthony had vowed he wasn’t “going to say anything’’ to the officials the rest of the season. But that wasn’t enough to keep Anthony from being whistled up yet again.
