Nuggets & Knicks Huge Fight – 10 Ejected

December 17, 2006

SeattleTimes:

NEW YORK — Ten players, including NBA scoring leader Carmelo Anthony, were ejected for fighting during a wild brawl near the end of Saturday night’s game between the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks.

Punches were thrown and players flew into the crowd in the NBA’s ugliest scene since Indiana Pacers players fought with Detroit Pistons’ fans on the court and in the stands in 2004.

This time, it happened at Madison Square Garden, right in the hometown of NBA headquarters.

“I feel bad for the league, I feel bad for the Denver Nuggets and the New York Knicks,” Nuggets coach George Karl said. “Very poor display of respecting basketball and respecting the game in the best place in the world to play basketball.”

Anthony appeared to throw one of the punches, and now awaits what will surely be strong punishment from a league still trying to repair its image after the melee in Auburn Hills, Mich.

“Something’s going to happen, but we shall see and wait,” Anthony said. “I don’t really want to comment on that right now.”
