Team USA reportedly "will not consider" adding Carmelo Anthony to their roster ahead of training camp next week, despite the fact that a number of veteran NBA stars have withdrawn from competition. Anthony, 35, ranks as USA Basketball’s all-time leader in career points, rebounds, and games played.
TMZ Sports recently caught up with Melo's wife LaLa to get her take on the Team USA chatter, and she think he deserves an invite "out of respect."
"Out of respect [Team USA] should [invite Anthony]," La La said. "Who was a better Team USA player than he was? Nobody. But, I'm not saying he wants to play or he doesn't want to play. But if you look at his stats he's the best."
