Carmelo Anthony Talks NBA Lockout, Fashion And More To "GQ" Magazine

New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony isn't letting the NBA lockout get him down! The very busy athlete sat down with GQ magazine to speak about his thoughts on the lockout, fashion, his wife LaLa's reality show and MORE!

On what he has been doing now that the lockout is happening:
A lot of people think that as a player, during the lockout, you just have your whole day free. It's not like that—especially for me. I wake up everyday, train in the morning from 9 a.m. to about 2 p.m. Then I have a business meeting here, have to meet this person there, it's non-stop for me.

His thoughts on the NBA lockout:
Well I think at the end of the day they want a competitive balance across the board. I personally don't see any way you can have a competitive balance if you don't spend money. At the end of the day it's all about money. It's kind of taking the fun out of the game because we just want to play basketball.

On doing a reality show with his wife LaLa Vazquez-Anthony:
I think it's good for me because I can just pop on there when I want. I'm not on there everyday, so people won't get tired of me. Yeah, people won't get tired of seeing me on there. When I come on there it's like, "Oh, Melo's on here today, something funny is going to happen. Something's gon' to go down."

Who, besides himself, does he think has a good fashion sense in the league:
I think everybody has their own unique style. LeBron got his own style—Amar'e, D-Wade, Kobe. 
On some of the fashion brands that he likes:
Simon Spurr is dope. Thom Browne is dope. I'm also real into Rag & Bone right now. 
GQ: What would you have done differently if you were in LeBron's shoes.
Carmelo Anthony: I would have just signed.

GQ: No announcement?
Carmelo Anthony: Yeah, I would have just signed.

Innneresting..... I'm sure LeBron would've done things differently
