Carmelo Anthony Hits Spencer Hawes In Back Of Head [VIDEO]

Carmelo Anthony is not expected to be suspended for hitting Philadelphia 76ers center Spencer Hawes in the back of the head on Sunday night.

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony hit Spencer Hawes in the back of the head on Sunday night.  Melo was whistled for a foul.  After the referees reviewed the foul, they issued a flagrant 1 foul.  Surprisingly (to me), Carmelo Anthony is not expected to be suspended for this incident.

Carmelo was clearly frustrated with Spencer Hawes and smacked him in the back of the head.  It’s not difficult to see this at all.  It wasn’t an accidentally head slap.  Melo knew what he was doing and wasn’t sorry about doing it.  If it was a complete accident, you would’ve been able to tell by Carmelo’s demeanor that he was apologetic after making contact with Hawes.

Carmelo reportedly will not be suspended.  Man, you talk about getting off easily; Melo isn’t even getting his hand slapped here.  There is no place for this stuff in the game.  I stick up for Melo a lot, but this is simply a punk move.  The Knicks beat the 76ers 99-93.  Melo scored a team-high 29 points.  The Knicks snapped a four-game losing streak.

There will be more NBA action this Thursday night on 104.5 The Team.  The Philadelphia 76ers will be back in action against the Chicago Bulls.  The game tips at 8:00pm.  Pregame coverage begins at 7:15pm on 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio.
