Kobe Bryant Says He’s Not Recruiting Carmelo Anthony


Rumors are spreading that Carmelo is looking to join Kobe on the West Coast with Melo’s supposedly favorite coach, Mike D’Antoni, and the Knicks baller has been hinting at wanting to test the free agency waters come June.

Before their game against the Knicks on Sunday, Kobe spoke to the press about those rumors, saying that it was “cold as shit” in NY and “palm trees and beaches are a little more appealing.” He went on to say that while he offers up advice to Melo, he’s not looking to recruit another player to L.A. right now.
