The New York Daily News is reporting that LeBron James is pushing for the Cleveland Cavaliers to trade Kevin Love to the New York Knicks for Carmelo Anthony. LeBron is calling the report trash and called the writer Frank Isola trash. Isola is a world renowned writer with an impeccable reputation so obviously someone is feeding him information. It’s my guess that the Knicks are planting stories to try to get the Cavaliers to make a move on Melo. The truth of the matter is that Carmelo Anthony isn’t a better player than Kevin Love at this point in their respective careers. The Knicks have taken the best of Melo for what his contract designates from a salary standpoint.
LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony are friends, but LeBron knows the best chance for him to continue winning championships lies at the hands and hustle of Kevin Love so there’s no way this trade goes down with Kevin Love leaving Cleveland.
