Kobe and Melo were “closer” than anyone else during Team USA’s journey

    It’s always nice when two competitors have a deep respect. Melo threw down some respect on KB24…

    Denver Post: On Monday at Staples Center, after the Nuggets arrived in preparation for Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, Carmelo Anthony suggested that no two teammates on Team USA became closer at the Beijing Olympics than him and Kobe Bryant.

    “That’s my man,” said Anthony, who then flashed a smile. “But I don’t know him this week.”

      Respect is something earned.

      Let’s see how many hugs and hi fives they give each other over the next 7-10 days. I love competition at the highest level.
