07:11 AM ET 07.09 | Yet another version of The Decision may loom -- this one in the nation's biggest market. Can I see Carmelo Anthony in purple and gold for the 2014-15 season? You bet your box of Honey Nut Cheerios I can. Anthony in La-La land with La La Vasquez? It's a good match, especially if things don't work out next season for the Knicks. La La spends a chunk of time in Hollywood and Las Vegas anyway, and they have pads in both places. The Los Angeles Times speculated [Monday] the Lakers, after losing out on Dwight Howard and projecting major cap space in 2014, could target Anthony if he winds up on the free-agent market. The report cited Anthony's friendship with Kobe Bryant, who once said Anthony was the one player with whom he'd love to be teammates.

I wonder who's next on T&R tomorrow? DWade? Durant? Lakers are forming the Superteam 2.

I think the Lakers do have a better shot of landing Melo than any other superstar free agents next year. He could very well leave NY if the team doesn't do well this coming season. He'll be perfect guy to replace Kobe.

Because he misses a lot of shots?

Finally. Melo and LeBron get to play together on the same team and with the best center in the league, Chris Kaman...

Anthony has a career .456 FG % shooting average. Not too shabby for a Forward!!!

We don't wonder why they're called Fakers. We wonder why Cavs are called good...

Hey Eli, I was thinking the other day, how many NBA titles do the Cavs have. :-)

Are the Lakers that desperate? Probably yes.

Is putting Melo with Kobe a good idea? I would look for a good point guard and some young talent rather than Melo...here is a quick overview of the NBA Salary Cap and why teams like the Lakers will no longer be willing to exceed it: http://wp.me/p2wecE-a2
