Lakers fans shouldn’t get discouraged, but they might want to focus on a new target for the summer of 2014 because Carmelo Anthony apparently wants no part of Lakers nation. TMZ caught up with Carmelo coming out of Craig’s in Hollywood, and asked him point-blank if the Lakers and their purple and gold were in his future? “I doubt it,” said Anthony, who admitted he owns a pair of Air Jordans in Lakers colors. “… I don’t think you should read between the lines.” Anthony was then asked about the possibilities of teaming up with LeBron James next summer as well. “I don’t have them conversations,” Anthony said. Don’t fret Lakers fans, Carmelo has yet to have the Lakers contingent pay him a visit with promises of parades and millions of dollars.     Carmelo Anthony — Don’t Count On Me Joining the Lakers - Watch More Celebrity Videos or Subscribe
