MINNEAPOLIS - Carmelo Anthony was harassed by a man as the Knicks' All-Star forward got off the team bus Friday and walked toward the Target City locker room before the game. The incident was witnessed by reporters.

The man, who was already in the building and apparently got past arena security, uttered obscenities and said, "KG" several times to Anthony. KG is former T-Wolves star Kevin Garnett, who Anthony had a run in with last month at the Garden.

Anthony turned back and asked the man, "Why are you following me?" before he entered the locker room. Knicks security stepped in quickly and helped usher the man away.
