|Carmelo Anthony Took A Bodyguard To Boston|
He says it's all in the past, and that he's moved on, but perhaps some of the Celtics fans haven't so Carmelo Anthony has taken an extra bodyguard with him to Boston for tonight's game against the Celtics and Kevin Garnett. The pair were involved in an incident earlier this month at Madison Square Garden so Anthony is hoping nothing spills over from the stands to him, or his family.
Carmelo Anthony has become public enemy No. 1 in Celtics Nation, which would explain the Knicks All-Star forward being accompanied by his own personal bodyguard as he ventured into hostile territory for Thursday’s game against Kevin Garnett and the Celtics.
It is not uncommon for superstar players, Kobe Bryant for example, to have their own security detail. The Knicks employ two security guards that are with the team at all times while Anthony’s bodyguard occasionally travels to road games.
Thursday’s nationally televised Knicks-Celtics game is the first meeting between the teams since Jan. 7 when Anthony, reportedly upset that Garnett made a disparaging comment about his wife, confronted the Boston forward outside the Celtics team bus. The NBA suspended Anthony one game for his actions.
The reason for the extra security has nothing to do with Anthony possibly crossing paths in the hallways but rather the hostile crowd that awaits him at the Garden.
