“I definitely think he will stay.”
-La La Anthony discussing Carmelo Anthony’s future with the Knicks on Bravo on Tuesday while promoting her book “The Love Playbook.”
“That’s my wife. I support her. I support what she said. I don’t think she said anything wrong…It’s a good thing for her to say that. Go get the book, though.”
-Carmelo Anthony responding to La La’s comments after the win over the Celtics
Harris DeckerI don’t always read between the lines, but there’s a lot to read into here.
I’ve been saying for months that I believe, given the opportunity, Anthony will stay in New York, signing a very large contract and retiring a member of the New York Knicks. What I just said can’t be justified. I’m the lead writer for The Knicks Blog with no intimate knowledge of Anthony’s plans for the future. What La La said is much more conclusive. And she’s sleeping next to Anthony every single night. She is capable of offering insight and I believe she just did.
That’s some reading between the lines for you.
