Carmelo In Los Angeles Times, Compared To Kobe

I found this interesting little column from Mark Heisler for the Los Angeles Times where he talks about Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets situation and compares him to Kobe and the Lakers of last year. He talks about the pressures of the NBA awaiting him when Team USA is no longer, especially in light of the fact that Denver moved Marcus Camby, to which he refers to his mood when hearing that news as, "salty". Of course, towards the end, the Kobe comparison is aided by Kobe himself as they discuss the Ron Artest trade and he makes this statement, "They're going to talk bad about you, and then when you win, it's all good," Bryant said, laughing. "The heck with that! You come to the Lakers for a bag of peanuts." For the piece itself, click,0,7433173.story
