With World Peace spending time with another superstar, Carmelo Anthony, this season, the veteran forward believes that he should take a page out of Kobe’s book according to Frank Isola of New York Daily News:

“Kobe doesn’t give a (bleep), he just wants to win,” Metta said. “Melo needs to be more demanding and he needs to see results. The only difference between him and Kobe is that Kobe saw results. When Kobe said something people did that (stuff). Carmelo has no choice but to make it his personality because he’s a great player. There are not too many guys like him.”

Once the 2013-14 NBA season comes to an end, Anthony will have a big decision to make in terms of his immediate future. Anthony will have the opportunity to opt-out of his deal with the New York Knicks and may elect to do so if the team continues to struggle.

The Lakers have been mentioned as a potential landing spot for Carmelo in free agency. It remains uncertain whether or not Anthony will opt-out and sign with the Lakers, but it continues to be a hot topic of discussion with the future looking bleak in New York.

    There are only a few, if any, who have the type of worth ethic the Mamba has. He’s truly a competitor. Melo isn’t even close to Kobe.

      as I understand it… MWP is saying that Melo should demand more of his team mates .. that Melo should not shy away from being perceive as an a-hole… “Kobe doesn’t give a bleep” … MWP is not talking about who is working hard… it is evident that Melo works hard too… what he lacks is the ability to not care about what media and people might think, as long as he sees results. How many millions of people in the world who hats Kobe for demanding of his team mates on the floor, even berating them on spot? I can say, there are a lot. Jordan was like that also… only difference is that, social media was none existence during that time, and we have no way to interact with fellow fans back then.

        agreed. but in a way that goes along with a willingness and wanting to try to win and compete.. to motivate your teammates

        I agree. Melo doesnt show his game face enough. He’s had enough fun. He need take it a lil more serious and start demanding his teammates. Not jus demanding the ball. His IQ has to grow to a level where he can tell his teammates where to be at on the court. And coach fron the sidelines. Lebron and kobe does it all the time durant lacks that too

  • ra

    that’s why Melo would work out here. Kobe would help to school him on how to take it up a level.

    He’s not going to LA, There a quite a few better options then the Lakers,
