Carmelo Anthony says Kobe Bryant didn’t prevent him from signing with the Lakers

This week, much has been made of an ESPN story suggesting that Kobe Bryant‘s personality has kept big-name free agents from signing with the Lakers in recent years. One of the most high-profile free-agent stars the Lakers have chased in recent years was Carmelo Anthony, who took offers from the Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks before ultimately re-signing with the Knicks for $124 million over five years.

However, Anthony told reporters on Sunday that his decision not to sign with the Lakers had nothing to do with Kobe. From ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Ohm Youngmisuk:

With Ronnie Price injured, Jeremy Lin to start vs. Rockets

There was some logic behind the seeming madness of Lakers’ coach Byron Scott in talking of starting journeyman Ronnie Price over the superior Jeremy Lin at point guard, as he did in the Lakers last preseason game. First, the starting unit will see the ball in Kobe Bryant’s hands a lot, and Lin is not a guy who does much for a team off the ball. Plus, Lin’s aggressive attacking off the pick-and-roll has shown some chemistry with backup big Ed Davis in the preseason (and without Nick Young until December the Lakers’ bench needs scoring punch).

But alas, injuries have the Lakers changing their plans at the point guard spot. Again.
