This trade has been a long time coming. LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony were taken just one pick apart in 2003 NBA Draft but have never played on the same team. This is a chance for the long-time friends to finally team up on the Los Angeles Lakers and attempt to win a championship.
Carmelo Anthony going to Los Angeles would be extremely entertaining. After his time with the New York Knicks, Anthony’s career has been a bit of a mess. He was out of basketball before the Portland Trail Blazers took a chance on him.
In the NBA Bubble, Carmelo Anthony looks like a bit of his old self from mid range. He is not the lethal score that he used to be but Anthony could provide some minutes off the bench for a team like the Lakers. He could keep the offense rolling when LeBron James or Anthony Davis is resting.
This move would be nothing but entertainment for the Lakers. It has been rumored since Carmelo Anthony was being shopped by the Knicks years ago.
