07:04 AM ET 05.03 | Yep, the rivalry has spread to the families. The war of words between the Boston Celtics and the New York Knicks took yet another unexpected turn with an Instagram posting by Carmelo Anthony's wife, La La Vazquez. The Instagram message had bold, big lettered text that read, "Strong Women only Intimidate weak men." And in her message line, she wrote, "Try again. You on the bench for a reason." The comments by Vazquez came a day after [Jordan Crawford] and Anthony exchanged words following Boston's 92-86 Game 5 win at Madison Square Garden. It is unclear exactly what Crawford said, however he told the Boston Globe that, "they (Knicks) was talking to me, baby. They was talking to me. Yeah, they like me."

A comment coming from a strong woman named LaLA ??? lol. Truly The weak cat hear is Melo . It seems like the unwritten rule of talking about another man's family does not apply to Melo . everyone takes shots at his wife these days.

J Crawford is not an idiot. I think this whole gamesmanship is to distract the Knicks. He's taking all the limelight and pressure off of the Celtics since all the news and attention is on him. And the Knicks seem to be buying into this artificial "drama".
No one is talking about Brandon Bass's production. Or Green's emergence, or Terry's guts, or KG's determination....but worrying about what a bench-warmer might do/say about your two BEST players.

I hope Knicks are smart enough not to fall into such traps, and focus on the game. If this series goes game 7, I'm not sure 'Melo or JR have the ability to withstand a game 7 pressure in NY.

Lala just proved the hecklers right. She does have a thuggish attitude. If NY loses tonight, the players will really feel the heat and the might try to talk trash a lot more. They will feel disrespected for sure...

Correct Crawford is just throwing bait out there for Melo.
