    LeBron had all the clout & power to get Melo on HIS TEAM a year ago but never did it. Yet he claims thats one of his best friends. I don't want no friends if they gonna treat me like that. LeBron fake AF.

    Emery Bryan 1. Bron clearly doesn’t run the Lakers. 2. Melo can’t defend better than anyone on the Lakers roster, he’s not the right fit. Plus do you really want 2 former star players on your team on non-guaranteed contracts? Sounds like a bad idea. Why can’t y’all just be happy for Melo tho lol

  29. Emery Bryan
