The big story in sports right now is the bad blood that have allegedly brewed between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett. But is it that bad?

We old school sports fans know that having your wife’s goodies called “Honey Nut Cheerios” might not have been the worst thing in the world we’ve heard. In fact, in the NBA, there have been tons of way worse things that have taken place in the NBA.

Worse things have been said, worse fights have taken places, and actual crimes have been committed in the National Basketball Association for a long time. It is the wussification (yes, we made up a word. deal with it) of professional sports mixed with the hyper media coverage of sports has made things blow up quicker than ever.

That’s where we come in. Hip-Hop Wired counts down some of the biggest scandals and urban legends in the history of the NBA on this week’s Wired 25. Check it all out down after the jump.
