Former Tar Heel and coach George Karl downplayed the incident noting that once he had refused to come out of a game. Anthony, who has made his share of blunders, is generally know to be a good guy and his sense of humor came through during his big game against Blazers (the Portland ones, not the Nokesville ones).
When Karl replaced Anthony, this time Mello RAN to the bench which generated much laughter.
In his post game comments, Mello noted that, yes, he had learned his lesson.
