Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant agree on what separated their All-Star studded teams in their lopsided first-round playoff series: teamwork.

Anthony says he doesn't think the Lakers are any better "talent-wise," but he says "team-wise," they are.

The Lakers are moving on after turning the Nuggets from a team that was giddy just to make the playoffs into a gloomy bunch that trudged off the court last night as the first 50-win team in NBA history to get shut out in the playoffs.

Bryant says the Nuggets have a lot of talent, but sometimes "chemistry" is more important -- and he says the Lakers are a team where "everybody just meshes."

The Nuggets won 50 games for the first time in 20 years, tallying just seven fewer wins than the top-seeded Lakers.

Still, Denver lost to the Lakers by an average of 13 points.
