Carmelo Anthony Suspended 1 Game

“There are no circumstance in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game,” NBA’s Stu Jackson said in statement

You can bet the Knicks will have issue with the initial instigator, Garnett, but Jackson’s statement confirms that the league is suspending Anthony for his actions after the game—not the on-the-court confrontations between the two.

There is no news yet on whether Anthony or the Knicks will pursue the appeal process. New York travels to Indiana to face the Pacers on Thursday night, then travels back to Madison Square Garden for a matchup with the red-hot Chicago Bulls Friday.

If the Knicks do decide to appeal, they could lose Anthony not only for tomorrow’s matchup against the Pacers, but also for the Bulls game. Don’t be surprised if the Knicks decide to bite the bullet on this one and sweep this entire incident under the rug.

At least until the Celtics are in town again.
