Carmelo Says Kobe and D’Antoni May Have Planned This During Olympics

Carmelo Anthony says he is “Happy” for D’Antoni, but did insinuate something that’s definitely making me scratch my head…

“This summer with him and Kobe, maybe they had something under the table, I don’t know. It will be fun. I know Kobe is excited about it.’’

Hmmmm…I would’ve bet GOOD money, once reports started flowing in that the Lakers were courting Phil Jackson and he was open to the idea of returning to coaching, that he would return to the Lakers bench.  The manner in which the Lakers hired D’Antoni has had me puzzled ever since I heard about it this morning.  Could there actually be some truth behind Carmelo’s theory?  It wouldn’t be the first time plans were made during the Olympic games.
