Carmelo Anthony said one of the seven dirty words on live television.
The ex-Knick was being interviewed by Fox Sports following the Thunder’s 127-117 win over the Clippers Thursday when he dropped an F-bomb in response to being squirted with water by teammate Russell Westbrook.
“Ah, motherf—–, s–t,” Anthony said.
It’s unclear whether or not the NBA will fine Carmelo for swearing on live TV.
Last year, Westbrook was fined $ 15,000 by the league after he said “I don’t give a f–k about the (stat) line” following a 51-point performance in a loss to the Rockets.

Carmelo was all smiles after the Thunder’s win, where he netted 22 points and also passed Patrick Ewing on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
Carmelo is now 21st overall with 24,829 points, while Ewing had 24,815 points in his career.
After acquiring Carmelo, the Thunder started the season slow with their new “Big Three” of Carmelo, Westbrook and Paul George. After getting off to an 8-12 start, Oklahoma City is now 22-17 and has been rolling as of late.
Carmelo will just have to not let F-bombs roll out of his mouth on live TV in the future.
