    Melo please decide now and choose the Purple and Gold..
    The Lakers Nation will welcome you gladly!!

    all these melo rumors are driving me nuts! what is the big hold up is melo having second thoughts? I don’t think he realizes that hes the key to a having a better roster the next seasons. Melo you’re hanging out with kobe in LA just make the decision already! kobe and randle are set pau is waiting for you so he can sign as well! if not pau a slight possibility of lebron and if that doesn’t happen you got kevin love coming next season! all melo has to do is say yes and greatness will happen for LA once again!

      After contemplating his options this weekend,free agent Carmelo Anthony’s
      decision isn’t expected to linger late into the week,a source said

      • Zimmeredge

        Not expected late into the week? Does he expects lebron to follow or does he wanna follow lebron if he stays Miami?
        Because bron is suppose to Meet riley within the next 2-3 days Max. It has been reported all year that bron and melo wanted to play together next season.

      The holdup? Phil is trying to play mind games with him. Plus, his wife is probably the one making the decision and can’t make up her mind. Also, the Lakers are pursuing LeBron, which means they might not even offer Melo a contract.

  • JohnSmith00

    Alright after a bit of indecisiveness I’m calling it, Melo to the Lakers tomorrow afternoon-evening or early Tuesday.

  • kiko

    LA Lakers Should next hire head coach Bob Mcadoo and jeff van gundy or george karl and mike woodson and mark jackson next new head coach LA Lakers right now

  • Randle

    Lakers 24/7! Let’s go!

  • Lakers16xchamps

    Landing melo would be awesome it would give us our future to build around and maybe rondo doesn’t get traded and just walks to L.A. along with K.Love next great Laker era….

  • KobeScrewedUs

    Just remember that if Kobe just took $15 million per year we’d have Melo and LeBron already. Kobe’s ego fucked us.
