Carmelo Anthony, James Harden and Kobe Bryant–besides all being superstars they have one other thing in common.
They need to have the basketball in their hand and didn’t want to share with Jeremy Lin.

The Mavs were also going after Deron Williams, who they signed a week after Lin went to the Charlotte Hornets.
Lin is expected to come off the bench for the Hornets, but is expected to play a key role.
