Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook celebrated OKC’s win a bit too hard on Jan. 4! Melo dropped an F-bomb in the post-game after Westbrook poured water on him!
Ah, the beauty of live tv! It was impossible to sensor Carmelo Anthony‘s R-Rated language after OKC’s win over the LA Clippers [127-117] on January 4. The NBA forward, 33, dropped an F-bomb and more cuss words [as seen below] last night during a post-game interview. After Russell Westbrook, 29, surprised him with a cold shower from behind, Melo squirmed in shock as he yelled, “Ah, motherf—–, s–t!” The interviewer immediately pulled the microphone down from Melo’s mouth, but it was too late; The world had already heard him yell the dirty words.
It’s unclear whether or not the NBA will fine Melo or not for his use of explicit language. His teammate, Westbrook may know a thing or two about his situation since he was fined last year for cursing in a post-game interview. Westbrook was fined $15,000 by the league after he said “I don’t give a f–k about the [stat] line” following an incredible 51-point game in a loss to the Houston Rockets. However, Melo might not be worried about a fine. The 10-time All-Star was all smiles after last night’s win over the Clippers, where he dropped 22 points. Melo also hit a major milestone last night, as he passed Patrick Ewing on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. He is now 21st overall with 24,829 points, which set Ewing back with 24,815 total points in his career.
Fans can also catch Melo, in animation that is, on their Apple smartphones. He just released is own line of animated emojis — MeloMoji — with Audioisms. Melo’s app is “the world’s first app to have Audioisms,” Apple’s description reads, adding that Audioisms allow users to put Melo’s voice directly into their conversations. MeloMojis contain dozens of Audioisms that were pre-recorded by Melo himself, in addition to tons of emojis he created.
The Thunder will travel to Phoenix this weekend, as they are set to play the Suns on Sunday, January 7 at 8 PM ET.
