Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul

New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony’s upcoming free agency has been the major topic of discussion.  It wasn’t too long ago that rumors stirred of Anthony teaming up with star point guard Chris Paul.  Paul has since signed a contract extension with the Los Angeles Clippers and now ponders what his friend Anthony will do as rumors of them linking up have fired up again.

Though Anthony has been linked to the Clippers to reunite with his buddy, Paul said he realizes Anthony still prefers the Big Apple.

“I know he loves it there,’’ Paul said when asked by The Post if Anthony will stay or go during All-Star weekend festivities. “His family loves it there. Most of all, he loves to play basketball there. Whatever he does, I’ll support him 110 percent.’’

Paul’s thoughts aren’t farfetched as Anthony dropped a bombshell this weekend saying that his priority was to stay in New York and that he would take a paycut to help the Knicks.

Paul, aka CP3, said he will give Anthony advice over the summer if he needs it. Anthony and his wife, La La, have a place in Los Angeles and she has spent a lot of time in Hollywood.

“One thing I learned about L.A., it recruits itself,’’ Paul said when asked about Anthony’s interest in going west. “I don’t think I’m one of those recruiting people. Seeing the way we play and our coaching staff, all that plays a role. We have somewhere that a lot of guys want to play. Everybody is linked to Los Angeles. It’s a nice play to live I guess. ‘’
