NEW YORK — Kobe Bryant flashed a wry smile when asked whether another superstar could help the Knicks make a deep playoff run.
“Is that your way to ask me about the ‘Melo stuff?” Bryant said after scoring 33 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in the Lakers’ 113-96 win over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
“They have some really good pieces here and I think the future is bright for them. But who are we kidding? We’re talking about Carmelo Anthony. Let’s not go crazy. Carmelo Anthony is a bad boy, so you figure it out.”
