Knicks Start Using High Tech Mics to Record Players Trash Talk

Unless you are living under a rock, we are all now well aware of the incident last week between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett, both on the court and off. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

But apparently sources of the NY Post are saying Knicks owner James Dolan was not happy with all the ‘he said, she said’ speculation that arose from the incident. And to prevent any speculation in the future regarding trash talking, he has implemented a new system in the garden where they use high tech microphones held courtside by technicians to record all the trash talking between players.

League sources have confirmed Knicks owner James Dolan, in the wake of the highly volatile trash-talking war between star Carmelo Anthony and the Celtics’ Kevin Garnett last week, ordered two technicians to hold high-tech, sensitive microphones at opposite ends of the Madison Square Garden court to record all in-game conversations by and around his star.

The devices first were used during Friday’s Garden loss to the Bulls then were employed again Sunday against the Hornets. (via)

I wonder if this will limit the trash talking against the Knicks at home, or whether Dolan sits up late at night listening to all the sweet sounds of his Knicks finally getting wins at home this season.

Or hell, maybe one of the players will try and sue Dolan for privacy infringement? What’s next Dolan, cameras in the bathrooms?
