“I don’t speak in those terms,” he said, smiling, when a TMZ reporter asked him how well he might play with LeBron James.

Earlier this week, TMZ held Anthony captive outside a restaurant in West Hollywood, asking a series of convoluted questions about rumors of a 2014 move to the Lakers.

“Can you see yourself in a purple and gold outfit?” the reporter asked.

“I doubt it,” Anthony responded. Then he took the question literally. “What kind of outfit, though?”
