Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James has stated he just wants his friend Carmelo Anthony to be happy regardless of where he plays.
“I just want the best for my friend, no matter what it is,” James told reporters in Cleveland before the Cavaliers traveled to New York for their game against the Knicks on Saturday night. “If [Anthony’s] there in New York or if not, I just want the best for him. I want him to be happy.
“The game comes very easy to you when you’re happy where you are. If he’s happy in New York, maybe he wants to be elsewhere. I’m not sure. He’s done a lot for that franchise. He did a lot for the Denver franchise as well. We’ll see what happens.”
The Cavs rebuffed the Knicks’ attempt late last month to trade Anthony for Kevin Love, sources told ESPN’s Marc Stein and Ramona Shelburne.
