Fans of the New York Knicks may want to stop attempting to butter up Carmelo Anthony in favor of his wife, LaLa Anthony, if they want the All-Star forward to remain in the Big Apple moving forward.
Just days after reports suggested that LeBron James’ wife wants to move to either San Diego or Akron (think Clippers, Lakers, Cavaliers) and that James stated a if his family is happy, he’s happy, it’s now the spouse of Anthony who is drawing attention.
LaLa, who is mostly known for staring on VH1′s Basketball Wives is also a former MTV host and is a native of Brooklyn, so it’s within a reasonable expectation that she’d be open to staying in New York and wouldn’t have a problem attempting to convince her husband to do the same. Of course, she also does a lot of work in Los Angeles though there hasn’t been much suggesting that Carmelo Anthony has entertained the though of playing in California as the Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets are currently his most linked to suitors.
Whatever the case, LaLa informed TMZ that she certainly has a say in where Anthony’s next contract comes from.
Ironically enough, LaLa seems to have been bitten by the acting bug (she’s promoting her new film, “Think Like a Man, Too”) and movies just so happen to often be filmed in Southern California, so maybe she’s not completely pro New York as originally assumed?
Regardless, whatever decision Carmelo Anthony does make, it seems as if it will be a decision made between the two of them.
