If there was any doubt Carmelo Anthony belonged near Hollywood, the NBA star gave a great performance when it came to answering questions about the Los Angeles Lakers becoming his next stop once he leaves the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Melo was jetting out of LaGuardia Airport in New York when he was asked about possibly heading to Los Angeles and joining LeBron James. He dodges questions left and right, pretending to have no idea about whats happening with his future in professional basketball.
The 34-year-old is expected to be pursued by multiple teams in the coming weeks, including the Houston Rockets and Miami Heat, along with the Lakers.
A move to L.A. is surely being eyed by Melo’s wife, La La. She’s not only pursued a career in Hollywood, but is also friends with many of the city’s staples, like the Kardashians.
As for where the NBA star is headed to at the airport, we’re told it’s only a vacation. However, LeBron also went on vacation right before inking his deal with the Lakers, so clearly we should crank up the rumor mill to expect a pending contract announcement!
