Carmelo Anthony is standing up for his wife Lala who came under attack by the media after Carmelo turned down a $64 million deal to continue playing for the Denver Nuggets. Many people believe she is the reason behind his decision.
Last night, after his win against Phoenix, he was asked about the rumors:
“Y’all put this in bold words, La La has nothing to do with anything,” Anthony said. “Whatever is my decision, she is going to support me. She has nothing to do with me staying or leaving. Nothing. So please keep her out of it. Thank you.
“People have to write about something and [they] come up with, ‘She don’t want to be here.’ She has nothing to do with that. This is my career. This is my decision. Of course, I got to consult her with everything. It wasn’t one conversation I had with her where she said, ‘Let’s get out of Denver.’ ”
“It’s normal, you got to consult with your family about decisions like that,” Anthony said. “That’s all she has been doing. She hasn’t had any say-so what I should do or where I should go.” SOURCE
