Carmelo Anthony revealed who is the biggest trash talker he has come across during his time in the NBA.

The Knicks star was taking part in a quick fire interview, answering fans questions for, and he had to think long and hard about his answer.

But when pushed he went for Boston Celtics legend Kevin Garnett.

Garnett and Anthony famously came to blows in January 2013 with Garnett, then off the Celtics, rumored to have spoken out of turn about Melo's wife on the court.

And the 15-time All-Star has a long history of using his mouth to get an edge on opponents. In doing so he has undoubtedly become an expert at using talk as a game-winning tool, making it an art form.

Melo also listed Gary Payton as one of the 'best' trash talkers while also covering a wide rang of topics during the interview - from twerking to Twitter!

Garnett and Anthony will meet one more time this season when the New York Knicks take on the Brooklyn Nets April 2, whether Garnett lives up to his new title on the night remains to be seen.
