Last week, Derrick Rose reportedly worked out for Carmelo Anthony in Chicago to show that he’s now 100 percent healthy, though it seems that Kobe Bryant took it one step further by playing pickup hoops with Melo today at UCLA. Oh, and Kevin Love just happened to be playing there, too. The rumor of Kobe, Melo and Love playing at UCLA was making the rounds on various social media platforms all day, though the development was later confirmed on Twitter by John Rebholz, UCLA’s Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Relations. Yes, and Kevin Love too. RT @MrRamirezToYou: Was kobe and melo there today? @JoshRebholz— Josh Rebholz (@JoshRebholz) July 6, 2014 However, Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo Sports later refuted Rebholz’s tweet and said that Love wasn’t present at UCLA today. Aside from the interesting news that Bryant was playing with Melo – and possibly Love – it’s good to hear that the five-time NBA champion is now healthy enough to participate in some pickup hoops. Meanwhile, this news will likely worry the New York Knicks and their fans even more. According to Marc Stein from ESPN, Melo has yet to tell any teams in the running for his services that he has crossed them off his list, though the NBA scribe also notes that there’s a “rising sense around the league” that Anthony will either choose to sign with the Lakers or Knicks. Also, according to Ramona Shelburne from ESPN Los Angeles, Pau Gasol “has emerged as a key selling point” for the Lakers “as sources believe he would quickly re-sign if they are able to land Anthony or James.” .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 300px; height: 250px; } @media(min-width: 500px) { .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 300px; height: 250px; } } @media(min-width: 800px) { .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 336px; height: 280px; } } The post Lakers Rumors: Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant (and possibly Kevin Love) play pickup basketball together at UCLA appeared first on Lakerholicz.com.

Earlier today, Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Lakers left a great impression on Carmelo Anthony. Afterwards, ESPN mentioned that the Lakers have emerged as the top threat... The post LeBron James Considering Super Team With Carmelo...

Why can’t the Chicago Bulls ever land big name free agents?

Carmelo Anthony is not coming to the Chicago Bulls, that’s just reality. They’re not getting Pau Gasol either. Lance Stephenson doesn’t fit the system. So your biggest name free agent addition would be Trevor Ariza or Chandler Parsons. Sorry, Chicago Bulls fans, quoting 1990s 2-hit wonder The Rembrandts “that’s just the way it is baby.” You recall the hard core recruiting...

Melo to Miami?

photo credit: http://photopin.com Rumor has it that Carmelo Anthony is waiting to make his decision so he can team up with LeBron James. Anthony wants to win badly at this point in his career, but is he willing to take a pay cut? If Melo were to go to Miami, everything would have to line up perfectly. Chris Bosh would have to accept the Houston Rocket’s max offer and Dwayne Wade...

Chicago Bulls: Chandler Parsons a good fit?

The Bulls chances of getting Carmelo Anthony are a slim to none according to most reporters. If I'm the Bulls I'm looking past that. They have already contacted Pau Gasol and some other free agents. But I think if the Bulls strike out on Melo, I think they should look West for a potential small forward. That small forward is Chandler Parsons. Parsons had a great year for...

In this article, I’ll predict where arguably the two best free-agents, Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James, will land. Will Carmelo sign for the max with the Lakers to play with Kobe Bryant...

Carmelo Anthony waiting to see if he can join LeBron James in Miami?

The Miami Heat are going to need Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade to take less money in order to keep their Big Three intact. LeBron James will likely command something very close to a maximum contract, and deservedly so. If the Big Three all return, those crazy rumors about the Heat potentially signing Carmelo Anthony […]

Checking In With The Portland Trail Blazers Offseason
