Anthony could be waived at any moment but is not eligible to be traded until Saturday, Dec. 15.
Despite being the greatest basketball player in the world, apparently even LeBron lets emotions get in the way of his team's success, as the addition of Anthony would clearly only add drama and misfortune.
James is seven months Anthony's junior, and Sharpe believes it is hard for the latter to accept his depreciation. They were two of the four players who took a vacation together when the famous Banana Boat photo was taken.
In a story published by Bleacher Report on Wednesday, both Durant and now-Lakers teammate Tyson Chandler both were quoted about why some star players might perhaps be hesitant to play alongside James. The 33-year-old James has deflected the question, saying it's not his decision. He parted ways with the Rockets in November after playing in just 10 games, averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, shooting 40.5% from the field and 32.8% from three.
The Lakers wouldn't need Anthony to turn in a vintage performance if he signed with the club.
Los Angeles would have to create a roster opening in order to sign Anthony.
