Carmelo's Fiancee Finally Speaks On Incident With Mavs Fans

Thursday, May 21, 2009

The motherly website, Momlogic, has an exclusive interview with Carmelo Anthony's fiancee, and for the first time she explains what set her off during Game Five of the Western Conference Finals. Not only does she claim fans yelled racial slurs at her, and the Nuggets, but they even called the couple's son a "bastard"....

"They began yelling 'F*** the Nuggets!' right in front of my son." Then she says they started calling the Nuggets players "n*****s." She was shocked. "I've been at a ton of games -- but I have NEVER heard fans say things like that." Then, looking directly at her while taunting Anthony on the court, Lala says the fans called her son a "bastard."

"I know it was directed at me. Yes, my son's dad and I are not married -- but we are engaged!" Lala turned to the fans and said, "This is just a GAME! Do you even know these players?!" She then asked her babysitter to take Kiyan out of the arena. The fans, who by this time, claims Lala, were completely intoxicated, became even "more aggressive," yelling "F*** the Nuggets!" and insulting their families -- namely, Lala says, her and Carmelo. Then they physically pushed her. Pushed to the edge, she turned around and yelled back.

TV cameras captured security guards approaching her. "They said they had seen the whole thing and told me I had done nothing wrong. I was NOT ejected, they just escorted me to a suite [for safety]. I was mad!" Mavericks owner Mark Cuban even apologized the next day for a variety of incidents that happened at the game -- including the insulting of another player's mother -- saying "This has gotten out of hand."
Usually in cases like this, both parties are to blame, but I can completely understand losing one's cool in this case. Arenas and stadiums have been getting more and more violent over the years, so hopefully this unfortunate incident leads to some stricter fan guidelines.

I really doubt that people were yelling nigger at an NBA game. That's BS. Security's not throwing those people out? BS.

Big shock that this happened in a state as educated as Texas.

Ironically, people have been screaming "HONKY" at me all day while I sit in my cube.

@Ed James,
Call me naive all you want, but I don't think people use the word nigger at a sports arena without getting thrown out. Especially a NBA arena. Sorry, I just don't believe her.
BTW would anyone care about her side of the story if they were just yelling F U? No, so to spice up the story she makes up racial epithets so that people with sympathize with her.

I'm with Scott. There was no uproar surrounding the women, as I would imagine there would be sitting 20 feet away from 10 giant men, most of them black. Yeah this is Texas, but I don't think the Klannish type frequent NBA games. As a commenter on Deadspin pointed out, this is proof that it is impossible to take someone seriously when their name is fucking La La.

Thank you Cole. People who use the N-word don't go to NBA games.

why is she offended by the N- word? Isn't she Puerto Rican or something?

Wow QUESTIONMARK - the N-word should offend all people. Don't you just love it when people like yourself spread such ignorance? Just warms my heart. What does someone being puerto rican have to do with it??? Look at her - she's BLACK. There are BLACK people all over the Americas not just in the USA.

Dumb ass.

The thing I can't understand, especially as a Mavs fan who is not racist, is why they would play the n-word card. All NBA teams are rife with black players so it's completely retarded no matter how you spin it.
