After the Honey Nut Cheerios incident between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett earned Anthony a one-game suspension, Knicks owner James Dolan wasn’t going to take any more chances.
That’s why, according to a report, on Friday and Sunday when the Knicks matched up with the Chicago Bulls and New Orleans Hornets, Dolan had in-house technicians install microphones on both ends of the court, with the purpose of recording Anthony’s conversations.
ESPN’s Ian Begley came out with the report, saying, “The Knicks were trying to ascertain whether other players were going overboard in their trash talking against Anthony, sources told Broussard.”
The move was also justified by Dolan as a measure taken to protect Anthony and essentially keep him from being suspended.
According to the report, the NBA has said that they have no issue with this move.
It is also unsure whether the Knicks will continue to record conversations in the future.
It seems like Big Brother has invaded Madison Square Garden, and his name is James Dolan.
