Yesterday, Bleacher Report writer Kevin Ding wrote seven reasons why Carmelo Anthony and the Los Angeles Lakers are not a match made in heaven. With the likelihood of superstar LeBron James declaring for free agency dwindling by the day – which is not even to mention the slimmer chances of him leaving Miami – ‘Melo has seemingly turned to priority number one this off-season. With the state of the Lakers season, much will be made about this summer’s sweepstakes over the forthcoming months about the impending landscape change coming this summer.

    Are you a Laker Fan ? You sure don’t sound like one. You are not making a compelling argument here. Carmello makes no one or no team better. He needs to stay in the NYC. LA is trying to build a team for the future. Carmelo is looking for a contender now.

    Melo has never been a winner, is not a winner & will never be a winner. He has dumped one team (Denver) & now is threatening to dump another, New York. Whom ever is stupid enough (other then NY) to offer this man a max deal is put of their heads. I can name at least a half dozen forwards that put him to shame total game wise….. The Lakers have gone down this road before, they tried Malone, they tried Peyton, they tried Nash, “HELLO” how about trying super future stud’s when they become available in 2015 ??? The ONLY player they should deal with this year are Greg Monroe. Sure if Love or Harrison Barnes or Klay Thompson, K. Irving, Waiters or Beal BUT honestly 2015 will be the year….Those are the types of players they should be going after, not these “OVER PAID, OVER HYPTED, OVER RATED, OVER EGO ETC.
