NBA Rumors: LeBron Wants to Play With CP3, Melo and D-Wade?

This sounds more like a senior All-Star team than anything else, but could really see a team compromised of LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony all in the starting five?

Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck takes a revealing look at the relationship between LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. Although not as hyped as his bond with Dwyane Wade, LeBron and Melo were actually friends first and share the role of confidant during the most difficult of times.

“I think they love one another,” said Mike Krzyzewski, who has coached James and Anthony for more than a decade with the U.S. national team. “It’s so damn genuine, and it’s so cool to see…They have each others’ back, on everything."

“That’s part of the reason why basketball is really not much of a conversation,” LeBron James said, alluding to their disparate careers. “Because we will refuse to allow our comparison and our rivalry over the years, that people have kind of put us together, to ruin what we’ve created as far as the bond….We won’t allow our friendship to be derailed.”

“We vowed to that from day one,” Anthony said.

But what about a late career team-up, with all four guys on the same roster?

Decisions have been made, trades forced, contracts signed, fates chosen, taking the teen stars down starkly different paths. The bond endures. The vision of a James-Anthony partnership does, too.

“I really hope that, before our career is over, we can all play together,” James said. “At least one, maybe one or two seasons—me, Melo, D-Wade, CP—we can get a year in. I would actually take a pay cut to do that.”

Maybe at the end of their careers, James said. Maybe sooner. One more ring chase, this time with everyone on board.

“It would be pretty cool,” James said. “I’ve definitely had thoughts about it.”

You never know.
