La La Anthony Rumors
We’re told the couple’s had ups and downs in the past, but the current NBA season has been extremely stressful on the marriage for several months. Carmelo’s been plagued by trade talks … with the Knicks looking to move him to another team.
If he could speak right now, 11-year-old Anthony Skipper might tell you about the birthday party La La Anthony and her husband, New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, threw for him last year. Maybe he’d talk about the presents that the Anthonys gave to Skipper and his siblings for Christmas. Unfortunately, due to a brain injury that has left Skipper without speech, he can’t. But the affection he feels toward La La and Carmelo still shines through. His mother, Tyrell Young, sees it each time her son hears La La’s voice on the phone. Often, Carmelo’s on the call in the background. “He looks around, and he’s trying to find and pinpoint the phone and where the voice is coming from,” Young says. “His eyes definitely light up. Sometimes his heart rate goes up a little bit. You can tell he’s very excited to see them and hear their voice. He perks up.”
La La soon learned that Young was near one of the top hospitals in the area but was in the wrong spot on a long waiting list to make an appointment. So La La got on the phone, and thanks to some help from friend and former Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, currently a member of the Chicago Bulls, and the Heat organization, she secured a spot at the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami. She also found out that transportation was a challenge for Young, so La La reached out to Kia, with the help of Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, to secure a vehicle that was handicap accessible.
After La La Anthony took to Twitter to defend her husband and question the motives of a referee, Carmelo vowed to stay silent the next time in the presence of Tony Brothers. But he also didn’t deny what his wife had tweeted – that Brothers, a veteran official, is operating with a personal vendetta against the Knicks All-Star. “I have nothing to say to him. It ain’t personal with me, on my end,” Anthony told reporters before scoring 31 points in Saturday’s 118-107 loss to the Raptors. “I don’t have anything to say to him. He refs. I’ll play. I’ll keep my mouth shut next time.”
His wife, La La Anthony, tweeted Friday night it’s “personal’’ between Brothers and Anthony. Anthony agreed that something’s at work. “I always feel it’s something,’’ Anthony repeated. “Every time we … I don’t want to say it’s personal, but I always feel like it’s something.’’
