Did Celtics Seal Their Fate Taunting Anthony’s Wife Lala?
Did the Celtics give the Knicks even more motivation to eliminate them by taunting Anthony about his wife LaLa … Again?
HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: Have we learned nothing from watching Spike Lee motivate Reggie Miller to win after win?
Following the Celtics victory over the Knicks on May 1st, Jordan Crawford reportedly told Carmelo Anthony, “My man (Kevin Garnett) f*cked your wife.”
First off, this is tacky and stupid. It led to a minor scuffle following the game. Yet, this is playoff basketball and teams will do anything to gain an edge. Anthony already proved earlier in the year he has thin skin when he had a hugely dramatic response the Kevin Garnett talking smack about his wife, Lala Vasquez. Garnett had reportedly told Anthony that his wife tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios earlier in the year.
Lala had her own response to Crawford this time and gave it to him on Twitter.
The result of all this jawing? The Knicks topped the Celtics 88-80 today, eliminating the Boston Celtics 4 games to 2. Anthony had a solid game with 21 points, 5 assists, and 7 rebounds. Looks like the Celtics should work on their game as much as they work on their trash talking.
