During the game between the Celtics and the Knicks, Garnett did what he does best to Anthony - got underneath his skin to disrupt his game. KG supposedly told 'Melo that "his wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios", which to me isn't a bad taste reference, or example. I love Honey Nut Cheerios.
"I had to be able to laugh about it because that one was really crazy," La La told, host of "Ear Candy Mornings" on SiriusXM 44. "Like someone saying, 'Oh, your wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios,' and everybody really believing that and running with it. That's not what was said. Kevin Garnett did not say that about me. He just said some things to my husband that [Carmelo] didn't like that he felt like one man doesn't say to another."
"They're perfectly fine now," La La said of Garnett and Anthony. "It happens in the heat of battle. People don't know what does on on that floor. [Garnett's] known for that. So to got under my husbands skin, things happen, but it wasn't about me."
I personally have no clue where the Honey Nut Cheerios comments stemmed from, but I'm glad they did. It makes fun conversation in the midst of a roller coaster season. I also like La La's response to the situation. It's always good to laugh at yourself, especially if you supposedly taste like awesome cereal. Cool to see her be an adult about it and brush it off. What's said on the court should stay on the court, whether your a cancer patient or a brand of cereal.
