11:04 AM ET 02.09 | Carmelo Anthony was confronted by a trash-talking Timberwolves fan entering the Target Center last night who harassed him about Kevin Garnett and followed Anthony to the Knicks' locker room. Garnett played 12 seasons in Minnesota. The fan snuck by security when the Knicks players filed into the arena. He yelled at Anthony, "KG, KG. You don't know who Kevin Garnett is?" Anthony appeared ruffled, shouting back, "Why are you following me? Why are you following me?" before ducking into the locker room. The fan was immediately kicked out of the building by arena and Knicks security but was not arrested.

Basketball players are the essence of toughness; they slap-fight each other and tear up when fans taunt them.

<whimper> Why are you following me? <whimper>

Melo is such a puss. Just play basketball and ****. That's what you get paid $20 million a year for.

They need learn to be tough in those corners like suck swede hockey players.

Hey Melo, use your head. Instead of crying "why are you following me?" you should have said something like...

"You mean the same KG that dumped your **** like your old lady did?"

Just a suggestion...

Yuup, I'm surprise the fan wasn't taken into custody. They need to teach some fans some lesson and use him as an example. You can't allow a fan to stalk a player especially in a building where a fan is not allowed to be in...

"Stalk?" He was trash-talking him. Last I checked, you can do that in this country still. Athletes are such coddled babies these days.

Wow! Fans are sure changing in Minnesota... It used to be one of the politest cities. I drove a bus for the Metro Bus Line back in the day....
