Very interesting situation brewing with Carmelo Anthony. Doesn't seem to be much of a team player.
Switching from Jefferson to Marion at the start of the second half wasn't the only change Brown made. He also kept Carmelo Anthony on the bench for all but 2 minutes.
"I don't need a guy who doesn't want to buy in,'' Brown said. "How you play, how you practice and how you act determines how much you play.''
James seems to have received that message, accepting his role off the bench and trying to provide the energy that the U.S. team has been missing.
