Knicks owner James Dolan apparently ordered two MSG employees to use high-tech spy gear to record Carmelo Anthony’s words during Friday night’s game.
Dolan was inspired to do this after Carmelo had a confrontation with Kevin Garnett, who reportedly told Carmelo that his wife “tasted like honey nut cheerios.”
He wants to have recorded evidence that other players are resorting to verbally insulting Anthony to try to screw up his game.
The employees stood at either end of the court with parabola microphones that were focused at Anthony when he came near them at all times.
Dave D’Allesandro of the Star-Ledger reports:
“These guys had one directive from Dolan: Record every syllable Carmelo Anthony utters and absorbs while he’s on the court and on the bench, the Madison Square Garden CEO ordered them, and send the tape directly to me.”
Who knows what type of law suits Dolan could come up with if he had recorded evidence of all these insults. If only there was some way to prove which player actually started each argument.
