01:17 PM ET 07.25 | Los Angeles Lakers have braced themselves for a tough year filled with a whole lot more losses than wins. Still, recent rumors have suggested that the team will be pursuing LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony next summer in order to get back to relevance. What does Melo have to say about that? He ran into a reporter who asked him if he could see himself in a purple and gold uniform next season, to which Anthony responded that he doubts it. Obviously Lakers fans are eager to add more superstar to the roster, but everyone is getting way ahead of themselves. The only true reports that are out there are that the team will pursue the top free agents, and, guess what? So will the rest of the league.

I think he played it safe so this doesn't become a distraction for Knicks. But as well know a lot can change in a year. Lakers may be the hottest thing on the street and will Dolan's leadership you never what Knicks will morph into...

Agreed. Melo remembers how the press ate him up when there was the rumor of him leaving Denver and going to New York. They hounded him mercilessly. He's gotten smarter. There will be no Melomare this time!

The Melodrama was a lot bearable than the LeFake "decision" or the Dwightmare. I don't expect that to change either.

Are the Lakers finally going to find the truth in the Stones' song "You can't always get what you want."?

Start laughing now because none of those 2 will go to the Lakers. The Lakers really need some star players who are under 28...
