Does Melo deserve his suspension?

By Ian Begley



New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has been suspended one game without pay for confronting Boston's Kevin Garnett in the Madison Square Garden tunnel, near the players' locker rooms and in the parking garage following Monday's game against the Boston Celtics.

The NBA announced the suspension Wednesday. Anthony will serve the suspension Thursday when the Knicks take on the Indiana Pacers.

"There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game," NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson said in a statement. "Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday's game, and therefore a suspension was warranted."

Anthony has said that he did not believe he deserved to be suspended.

We want to know what you think.

QUESTION: Does Anthony deserve to be suspended for his actions Monday night?
