A fan in Minnesota harassed New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony before the Timberwolves-Knicks game Friday, according to reports.

According to Newsday, a fan approached Anthony as he was heading to the visitors locker room upon arriving at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

The New York Post reported that the fan shouted, “KG, KG. You don’t know who Kevin Garnett is?"

Anthony, according to the Post, shouted back, “Why are you following me? Why are you following me?" before he went into the locker room.

Team and arena security stepped in and, according to the Post, removed the fan from the arena.

Anthony and Garnett were involved in a trash-talking incident in early January at Madison Square Garden. Anthony approached Garnett several times after a Knicks-Celtics game in response to insults Garnett directed at Anthony during the game.

Anthony was suspended one game by the NBA for confronting Garnett off the court.
