Carmelo Anthony appeals fine related to Kevin Garnett confrontation

Carmelo Anthony says he’s moved on [1] from the Kevin Garnett [2] confrontation, but apparently his agent has not. According to the New York Post [3], the Players Association — after talking with Anthony’s agent, Leon Rose — filed an appeal to recoup the $176,000 Anthony lost as part of his one-game suspension.

The appeal is based on the fact that the Jan. 7 incident consisted only of verbal sparring.

“In light of the circumstances that it was not a physical confrontation, the suspension seemed excessive,” Players Association attorney Ron Klempner told the paper.

As per the collective bargaining agreement rules for one-game suspensions, Anthony was fined 1/110th of his $19.5 million salary.

Anthony and the Knicks are in Boston for a Thursday night game against the Celtics [4], their first meeting since the confrontation.
