Go get Carmelo Anthony.
That was Kobe Bryant’s message to the Knicks last night after he ransacked the Garden with a virtuoso performance — 33 points in 29 minutes — as the Lakers breezed to a 113-96 rout.
Feelings grew edgier on the whole topic of the Knicks’ chase for Anthony and another blowout loss did not help. One day after Mike D’Antoni said the Knicks are getting hurt by chants from the crowd for Anthony and chatter about a possible trade, Raymond Felton, the Knicks’ co-captain, went off after the loss.
“It’s starting to really get on my nerves,” he said of the trade talk.
Bryant, asked if the Knicks need to add another superstar, smirked: “Is that your way of asking about Carmelo?”
“They’ve got some really good pieces,” he added. “The future is bright for them. But who we kidding? We’re talking about Carmelo Anthony. . . . [He] is a bad boy. So you figure it out?”
D’Antoni, Donnie Walsh and Felton agree the Anthony rumors are chipping away.
“These are my teammates,” Felton said. “I’m going to fight for my teammates. I love my teammates. You keep hearing all this extra stuff about your teams, yeah, it’s starting to really get on my nerves.”
There’s just something not right about seeing Carmelo Anthony in a purple and gold jersey, its like putting mayo on a PBJ. It just ain’t right…
Do you hate or love the idea of Melo being a Laker???
