Nutty fan follows, taunts Knicks' Anthony
By MARC BERMAN
MINNEAPOLIS — Carmelo Anthony was confronted by a trash-talking Timberwolves fan entering the Target Center last night who harassed him about Kevin Garnett and followed Anthony to the Knicks’ locker room. Garnett played 12 seasons in Minnesota.
The fan snuck by security when the Knicks players filed into the arena. He yelled at Anthony, “KG, KG. You don’t know who Kevin Garnett is?’’
Anthony appeared ruffled, shouting back, “Why are you following me? Why are you following me?’’ before ducking into the locker room. The fan was immediately kicked out of the building by arena and Knicks security but was not arrested.
Anthony and Garnett, now with the Celtics, engaged in a trash-talking confrontation last month at the Garden, in which Garnett was reported to have made an unsavory comment about Anthony’s wife, La La.
