Knicks' Anthony Blasts New York Fans: Booing 'Wasn't Right'

Written by 

In light of the tragic events surrounding this year's Boston Marathon, both Carmelo Anthony and Paul Pierce took to the court in the Madison Square Garden prior the first game between the Celtics and Knicks to express support in trying times.

When Pierce began his speech, a few boos resounded through MSG from New Yorkers in the audience. Check out the incident below:

Per WEEI, New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony expressed his displeasure with the booing in MSG following the game.

“I don’t think that was the right thing to do, boo somebody like that,” Anthony said after the game. “At the end of the day, we all know what happened in Boston. Our prayers go out to the families and the City of Boston. In a situation like today, we all want … it’s all about the U.S. It’s our country. And it’s sad we have to go through unfortunate tragedies like that. Whoever booed him shouldn’t have booed him, not in a situation like that.”

I didn't hear boos when I watched it live but maybe I was mistaken. If so, major props to Carmelo for admitting when his fans are wrong.
