Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett have already been in meetings together, will practice together tomorrow and will be in the same locker room and on the same team in Sunday’s All-Star Game.

They both say what happened in New York last month stayed in New York.

“I’m not going to discuss that, man,” Garnett said. “Actually, I saw Melo a couple of minutes ago. It was good to see him. I’m happy for him and Tyson Chandler, all of those guys, Brook Lopez, Joakim Noah, guys here for the first time. That’s what this thing is about. Nothing negative.”

Anthony and Garnett talked after the incident on the court that spilled over to outside the Celtics’ locker room and their team bus. They played last month and exchanged fist bumps and Anthony helped Garnett up when he fell.

Anthony said there’s no leftover anger.

“Oh hell no,” he said. “We just had a meeting we spoke we talked. This is a fun weekend. That [stuff] was over that day.”
