Carmelo Anthony likes Honey Nut Cheerios after all

Carmelo Anthony appears to be putting his strange beef over breakfast cereal with Kevin Garnett behind him with, strangely, breakfast cereal over beef.
Anthony plans to break his two-week fast for “clarity” after hosting the rival Nets on Monday, when chefs from New York City’s Old Homestead Steakhouse will be chauffeured in a town car to the Knicks locker room to deliver a 40-ounce porterhouse steak covered in “a classic French Bordelaise sauce infused with pulverized Honey Nut Cheerioes,” according to the New York Daily News.
“They said after his fast they wanted to satisfy his urge of both and actually put these two things together,” a member of the restaurant staff told the Daily News.
Since rumors circled the internet that Garnett told Anthony his wife La La Vazquez “tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios” during the Celtics’ 102-96 win over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Jan. 7, everybody from KG to La La has denied that comment is what led to Melo’s confrontation with Garnett in front the C’s team bus.
Still, Anthony seems intent on discovering just how good Honey Nut Cheerios can taste.
“Only the owners and chef have tasted it, and the first one after them to taste it will be Melo. If he likes it, then it goes on the menu,” the staff member, who claims Garnett won’t be welcome in the restaurant, told the paper. “Melo was insulted, and we want to help him. Garnett’s messing with the wrong town.”
Of course, we all know Garnett is a master chef himself and probably has his own recipe for Bordelaise sauce that he will surely use as a metaphor for team chemistry sometime before the Knicks host the Celtics on Jan. 24.
