Is Carmelo Anthony Teasing LeBron James?
Drama is going on at both ends with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the New York Knicks. The issues both teams have is broken down by Carmelo Anthony with an insightful comparative analysis.Advertisement
“[The Cavaliers’] drama is more comical,” Anthony told reporters at Knicks shoot around in Chicago on his close pal LeBron James. “It’s more getting off of Twitter. Know what I mean? It’s always something that they blow up. Him unfollowing the organization. Him shutting his Twitter down. It is always something over there along those lines.”
“Over here it’s drama, a different type of drama over here.” Anthony also added. Carmelo Anthony also addressed the migraine problem that ruled him out for the game against the Kings on Sunday. Did the drama caused the migraine?
“No I don’t think so,” Anthony ridiculed such ideas, according to Fox Sports. “If that was the case I’d have had migraines every day last year.”
James’ cryptic messages on Twitter hit the headlines several times this month. His sudden move to unfollow the Cavaliers on Twitter created more stir in the media. James said he did so to focus on the playoffs.
The story is different at the Knicks. They are almost out of reckoning for the playoffs for the third straight season. There was a row over former head coach Derek Fisher’s dismissal in February and Anthony had to bear all the brunt of the entire turmoil with the Knicks. Though Melo has revealed his desire to remain with the Knicks and help them to bounce back, he doesn’t have a trade clause in his contract, according to the ESPN.
But despite of these issues, James and Anthony continue to be close pals. This is evident in James’ recent interview published in the Bleacher Report, where he expressed his dream of teaming up with Anthony as we have reported earlier.
“At least one, maybe one or two seasons — me, Melo, D-Wade, CP — we can get a year in. I would actually take a pay cut to do that. “It would be pretty cool. I’ve definitely had thoughts about it … We’ll see.” James said about the close friendship between him, Wade, Anthony and Paul.
