Kobe Bryant wants Carmelo Anthony to join the Lakers

Only Carmelo Anthony knows what he is going to do at the end of the season. 

He could sign an awesome five-year-deal with his current team the New York Knicks, something which no other team could compete with.

Alternatively, he could walk away from the Knicks and either force a trade or an early release from his contract. 

Whatever he does, the Lakers' Kobe Bryant certainly wants the talented ball player to move across the country and ply his trade in California for the fallen greats. 

Carmelo will be 30 by the end of the season, and his decision will surely depend on whether he wants an NBA title. 

At this current stage the Knicks are not going to be knocking on the door of a Championship in the next few years. 

So do this mean that he wants to move elsewhere for some glory and to fill up his trophy cabinet? 

After his best game for the Knicks on Friday when he put up a team record 62 points against the Bobcats, it would be a waste of talent for Anthony to never have a shot of winning it all. 

Speaking to, Kobe cheekily suggested what the Knicks' man should do. 

"Well, I mean everybody wants to play in Los Angeles," Kobe Bryant, whose 61-point Garden outing was eclipsed by Anthony's performance against the Charlotte Bobcats, said Sunday before the Lakers played the Knicks.

"New York's a beautiful place, don't get me wrong but it's colder than [expletive deleted] out here. It's palm trees and beaches obviously are a little more appealing.

"If he wants to come for advice later as a friend I'll be more than happy to give it to him."
