Carmelo Anthony’s Wife, LaLa Vasquez claimed that her recent televised altercation with fans during a game in Dallas, between the Nuggets and the Mavericks, was provoked by verbal attacks, threats, and racial slurs directed at her and her son. She also claimed that fans threw ice cubes at both her and her son. Here’s her statement.

“Obviously the play-off games bring out the best and the worst in fans but what happened on Monday night with the racial slurs/threats, verbal attacks on my son and physical attacks to myself by irate fans was unacceptable,” LaLa said in the statement. “The fans were totally out of control. What the cameras captured was me defending myself and didn’t show the abuse that was taking place.”
