Lakers’ Carmelo Anthony spills huge conspiracy theory on David Stern, NBA
The Lakers star’s latest appearance on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast was eye-opening in that Melo revealed an ominous threat made against him by former NBA commissioner David Stern. This was following Anthony’s 15-game suspension back in 2006 for an in-arena brawl that broke out between his Denver Nuggets and his future team the New York Knicks.

“‘I know who you with. I know where you live at,” the Lakers star claimed Stern said to him about his group of friends. ‘I know where they live at. I know when you close your eyes. I know when you wake up. And I know what they doin,’ he’s telling me.”
“And I’m like damn, how the f—? That’s when I knew NBA was part of the feds. He told me, ‘I gotta make an example out of you.’ That’s a fact. He said, ‘I know everything. I know your whole crew. I know who’s doing what.’
Despite the wild truth bomb that Carmelo dropped, he wasn’t exactly combative of the power David Stern flexed against him. The Lakers veteran simply admitted that it was the cost of being part of a league that pays him handsomely to play basketball
“I get it. If I’m giving you $100 million, I need to know everything.”
Whether David Stern truly wielded that power or not, you have to admit that it was a pretty baller move over one of the league’s best players, that’s still stuck with him to this day.
