This past Wednesday NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen stopped by ESPN's The Herd with Colin Cowherd show to voice his opinion about the recent trade rumors with Carmelo Anthony possibly becoming the next Laker sensation. Here's what he had to say:
“I think they are both at the stage in their careers when they realize that two superstars need each other to win in this league. I think Kobe realizes that he needs more of a slasher, a scorer, a guy who can penetrate and draw fouls. Carmelo Anthony is that guy.”
Apparently he's not alone. 57 percent of SportsNation viewers believe that Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony can coexist in Los Angeles.
SportsNation co-host Colin Cowherd doesn’t agree, “Carmelo is one of those good from far, far from good guys. He looks great on everybody else’s team but the closer you get to him you realize that he doesn’t play defense.”
What do you think?
