Carmelo doesn't care about Denver, sound familiar Cleveland?
Last night I was talking to my neighbor about the prospect of Carmelo Anthony leaving the Nuggets. At first I wasn't sure whether he was going to bite my head off or start crying. I guess the first inkling that Carmelo wanted to leave may have been ignited at his wedding this summer when Chris Paul made a toast and suggesting he would like to be united in New York with Amare and Melo. Well that doesn't seem like its going to happen but there are some strong rumours that he will be traded to the Nets. The Nets really? Do you think that will be a chance for Melo to win a championship in the near future? Prob not but he can get them to the finals next year prob in a weaker east conference. And he will be closer to NYC (the Nets are moving to Brooklyn in 2 years ) so his famous wife Lala Vazquez will be happy. Added to the fact that two have of his famous draft class mates Lebron James and Dwayne Wade have had a lot of attention this off season and a move to high profile NYC can help get him back to the spot light. Whichever way you look at it the move is not about winning or money, it's about attention that others are stealing from him. Denver and the the fans need him more but he needs attention even more. Sound familiar?
