Carmelo Anthony fits the Los Angeles Lakers system and not the Los Angeles Clippers says one former Lakers point guard.
“Lakers because Boogie [DeMarcus Cousins] got hurt,” Scott Machado told me this afternoon via text message.
“He’ll play the four, stretch the floor too!”
The Lakers signed Machado to a 10-day contract back in March after soaring as a stud on the Lakers’ G League team where he ranked second in the G League with averages of 16.4 points per game, 8 assists per game, 3.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 45 contests (25 starts) this season.
Machado saw the work LeBron James put in to rehab from his Christmas Day injury that sidelined him for some time. “I can only imagine being hurt,” he told the Scoop B Radio podcast.
“When I’m hurt I have withdrawals about being out of the game. Being him and taking his team from not being in the playoffs to the playoffs. To not be able to be out there with his boys so I know he’s doing 110% for his recovery. That doesn’t just happen for just everyone it shows the passion behind and for the love of basketball. Just wanting to be out there. I think that’s what he has.”
Meanwhile back at the ranch: Carmelo Anthony hasn’t played NBA basketball since November 8, 2018, in a game against his former team, the Oklahoma City Thunder.
