Several members of the Celtics and Knicks got pretty worked up during Monday’s game, with Carmelo Anthony going so far as to wait outside the Celtics’ team bus to confront Kevin Garnett. Most of the players downplayed both the chippiness on the game and the altercations afterward, although Celtics coach Doc Rivers did admit that he would “tell on [Anthony]” if it were the playoffs.
Rookie Jared Sullinger may have had the line of the night, though.
“That’s testy?” Sullinger said, according to ESPN. “That’s testy? I’ve seen way worse stuff in the ’80s, and I wasn’t even born in the ’80s. So, if that’s testy, I didn’t see it.”
Sullinger is right on a number of counts. Way worse stuff did take place in the ’80s, for one thing. Also, he was born in 1992.
Now, don’t you feel old?
