New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is usually pretty unassuming on the court. He’s most definitely not of the DeMarcus Cousins or Draymond Green ilk.
Though, Anthony did get into it with with Atlanta Hawks wing player Thabo Sefolosha in the second quarter of Wednesday night’s game. It led to a flagrant 2 foul and an ejection for Melo.
Here’s the play in question.

It’s about as clear as day what happened here, and we’re not too surprised Anthony was shown the locker room.
The NBA will surely review this play on Thursday morning, ultimately deciding whether Anthony should be suspended. Based on his track record, that seems somewhat unlikely.
