Every weekday throughout the season, ESPNNewYork.com will tackle a burning question about the Knicks in our "Opening Tip" segment.

Today's Burning Question: What are words that you shouldn't say to another man?

Everyone has a tipping point.

We all have words or a phrase that, when uttered in our direction, can make us irate.

Apparently, on Monday night Kevin Garnett found the phrase that sets Carmelo Anthony off.

There's been plenty of speculation over what Garnett said to Anthony that led to Anthony confronting the Celtics veteran near Boston's team bus.

Anthony wouldn't elaborate on what was said on Tuesday. He did shed a little light on the situation, though.

"It's certain things that you just don't say to men, another man," Anthony said. "I felt that he crossed the line. Like I said, we're both at an understanding right now, we handled it the way we handled it. Nobody needs to know what was said behind closed doors. So that situation is handled."

That leaves a lot to the imagination, of course. And it got us thinking ...

QUESTION: What exactly shouldn't you say to another man? What do you think set 'Melo over the edge on Monday?
