Last Thursday, in the New York Knicks vs. Boston Celtics rematch at the TD Garden, any Cheerios-related items brought in by the fans were confiscated by security. For those of you, who are out of the loop on the whole Cheerios fiasco between Kevin Garnett and Melo, I will summarize it for you in a sentence. Basically, a few weeks ago, during the first Celtics vs, Knicks game of the season, Kevin Garnett reportedly said Melo's wife, Lala tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios and Melo didn't take it too well. Since then, the internet has kept relevant, making a non issue into a thing that will forever haunt Carmelo for the rest of his NBA career. Taking advantage of this known fact, Philadelphia 76ers fans decided to chant the popular General Mills cereal on Saturday in an attempt to get the Knick to miss his free throws. It didn't work, but Melo did get a little chuckle from it.
Keep it classy Philly fans, you are not making any friends in this league by chanting a possible misquote reported on Twitter or cheering for injuries to other players.
