Carmelo Anthony has enjoyed his time as an unrestricted free agent and it must be nice to be wooed by the top teams in the NBA. He still has not come to a decision yet, which makes me think that the forward is waiting to see how things will shake out with LeBron James. The only certainty is that the Los Angeles Lakers are going to miss out on the whole party, and here are five reasons 'Melo would be nuts to sign there.
Kobe Bryant has driven away other superstars before, and 'Melo coming to town could offer the Black Mamba a chance to do it again. Even though they played well together on the Olympic team, I just do not see them as teammates for the Purple and Gold.
We all know that money makes the world go around or at least that's what I learned after watching "Cabaret." 'Melo was recently offered the maximum contract allowable by the New York Knicks, and it will be tough for him to walk away from that amount of cash.
It would surely anger Phil Jackson if 'Melo departs from New York, and it is still a possibility at this point. The real domino that the Zenmaster should worry about falling is Chris Bosh, because he could leave the Miami Heat high and dry. If that happened, then I am sure LeBron James might make a quick phone call to Anthony.
For Anthony to justify leaving New York he would at least need to join a contender. It remains a mystery to me why the Chicago Bulls cannot lure a superstar to their team, and it makes me question whether Derrick Rose is fully healthy.
The Miami Heat loom as an option for 'Melo, but he does not seem to want a pay cut and cannot be blamed for that considering his heavy minutes last season. But things could get interesting once the first shoe drops in free agency.
