Following a fight between New York Knicks player Carmelo Anthony and Celtics player Kevin Garnett, Knicks owner James Dolan ordered two technicians to hold microphones during the team's Madison Square Garden games — just to capture everything Anthony said.
If it sounds weird, that's probably because it is, and the photo of one of the technicians actually holding up the "high-tech, sensitive microphones" is even weirder. Not only were the mics used during Friday's game against the Chicago Bulls, but also Sunday's game against the Hornets.
The mics came after Anthony was suspended from last Thursday's game against the Pacers because he'd confronted Garnett several times after they had exchanged heated words on the court during their game Jan. 7. Anthony said Garnett had "spewed a verbal insult at Anthony," according to ESPN; some rumors said that insult involved Anthony’s wife and Honey Nut Cheerios. (What?!)
Although the two have allegedly made up since then, that didn't stop Dolan from feeling the need to listen in on the conversations taking place on the basketball court.
And you thought you were having a rough week.
