The Boston TD Garden confiscated Cheerios boxes and signs in the Knicks vs. Celtics rematch.

Eighteen days ago, the Boston Celtics defeated the New York Knicks at the Madison Square Garden 102-96 and created the one of the greatest, possibly fictional controversy in NBA history. The focus was not on the actual game itself, but rather on what was said during it. According to unknown sources, it was reported that notorious trash talker, Kevin Garnett said to the face of Carmelo Anthony that Lala (Melo's wife) tasted like honey nut cheerios. Whether this actually happened or not, nobody knows except for the two, however something was said by KG that did cause Melo to not only go into the Boston locker room post game to confront Garnett and also made him wait outside of the Celtics team bus to "talk." Nothing really happened, Carmelo did get suspended for a game and as part of the process, the internet exploded with terrible cereal jokes.

When something gets on the internet, it stays forever. So of course when the Knicks visited the TD Garden yesterday to play the Celtics, the fans of the green decided to get creative and make Cheerios signs in an attempt to throw off Melo. Unfortunately their hard work would go to waste, as the security confiscated any Cheerios-related displays to ruin the fun.

They didn't stop this bro though, he apparently was able to sneak it in.
