Stunning turn of events: NBA teams think LeBron more likely to leave than Carmelo
Although Carmelo Anthony has not made a decision yet as to where he’ll play next season, the general consensus is that he’ll be back with the New York Knicks. Whether Melo resigns with the Knicks still remains to be seen, but now, the newest rumor gaining traction is that many NBA teams believe that LeBron James is actually more likely to join a new team than Anthony.
We’re gotten to the point in free agency where some teams in pursuit think LeBron is more likely to leave than Melo. Stunning turn of events

It seems like LeBron James is flying under the radar (if that is possible) while Anthony is commanding the attention of several teams. I wouldn’t rule out James and Melo playing for the same team seeing that the two are close friends and you have to give some credit to the rumors out there saying that the two want to play together. We all remember what happened in the summer of 2011 when Lebron joined forces with best pal Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. If we’ve learned anything about NBA free agency over the last few years it’s that anything is possible until the ink reaches the contract of an NBA team.
