With 10x All-Star Carmelo Anthony still searching for an NBA home, many in the league already beleive his playing days are done.

No matter your opinion on that idea, there is no denying the fact that teams just do not seem interested in the former scoring Champion.

In fact, back when LeBron James was in Cleveland, he advocated for his banana-boat friend to get a spot on the team -- only to be denied.

Instead of joining the Cavaliers, Anthony went to Oklahoma City where he and the team struggled in the Western Conference. Things might have been different had they joined forces in Cleveland.

Today, Carmelo is unfortunately not in consideration to fill the Lakers' final roster spot. He averaged 13.4 points on 40% shooting last season.
