    When Carmelo Anthony stepped on the court at Madison Square Garden Sunday, announced as part of the visiting team, cheers rained down on him like he was Willis Reed. The New York fans wanted him to know what they thought of talk of him coming to the Knicks. But despite reports yesterday that the Knicks…

    Dec 12, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Carmelo Anthony wants a big market, superstar teammates, legendary status, lots of endorsement deals, and to party like a rock star. So, naturally, this whole idea of Michael Jordan trading for the Nuggets star is clearly going to work out. ESPN and Hoopsworld are both reporting that Michael Jordan and the Bobcats have shown interest…

    Dec 11, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Dec 9, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you and I figured out months ago, what Carmelo Anthony’s people have been telling the Nuggets front office privately since this summer, has finally sunk in with Denver’s decision makers. Carmelo Anthony is leaving, and you can trade him now or watch him walk for nothing next July. So Denver is going to get…

    Dec 8, 2010, 7:49 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Boston is catching some breaks this season.

  6. Nuggets looking to lock up Karl for 3-year extension

    Dec 4, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    If you want proof of how you need not commit to overreactions based on a few years of play and to try and weather the storms of violent change that regularly sweep through the NBA, look no further than George Karl. In 2007-2008, there was a very real movement to fire George Karl. The team…

  7. Chris Paul plays New York so crank up the speculation machine

    Dec 3, 2010, 11:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    The New Orleans Hornets will take on the Knicks tonight, and you know what that means — time for some vintage New York speculation.

    Carmelo Anthony was thrown out of the game in the third quarter of the team’s win Wednesday night over Miami.

    Dec 2, 2010, 3:17 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Denver Nuggets

    CBS’s Ken Berger threw this little note in at the end of his weekly column: …executives are becoming more convinced that Anthony would not agree to an extension with the Nets — a stance that could kill New Jersey’s months-long bid for the superstar once and for all. The reason is he doesn’t want to…

  10. Carmelo Anthony leaves game early due to flu (Nuggets win anyway)

    Nov 29, 2010, 1:19 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Like some kind of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” ending, a little virus has done what no line of defense could. Carmelo Anthony’s 134-game regular season streak of scoring in double digits came to an end Sunday night because he had to leave the game early due to the flu. He played the first…

  11. Melo likes his space in the locker room

    Nov 28, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Denver Nuggets

    Those of you who had a student transfer or move during your high school years know the sweet joy of the locker next to yours being empty. All that space! Having all that room, and if the person on the other side wasn’t using it, you could even stash stuff in it if yours became…

    Nov 26, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated put out a Carmelo Anthony trade theory via twitter on Friday: Interesting ‘Melo theory floated at me by a couple execs this week. Nets want Melo. DEN wants Nets package of Favors, Murphy, picks. But DEN thinking if they trade Melo now, that NJN pick becomes worse when Melo makes…

    CPaul_Heat

    While the entire league is enjoying a bit of schadenfreude at the Miami Heat’s expense Tuesday morning, Jarrett Jack — the newest member of the Hornets — was warning that the slow start in South Beach could be viewed as a cautionary tale by players. After the Miami Heat formed Voltron this summer, there was…

    Image (1) canthony_billups-thumb-250x140-18636.jpg for post 3784

    Remember when Chauncey Billups was brought in to Denver, a change at the point as the shoot-first Allen Iverson went to Detroit? That move changed who the Nuggets were, it brought a seriousness and professionalism to their identity. That is when they became a threat in the West. Billups likes it in Denver, but he…

  15. Nuggets wanted Brook Lopez in Carmelo Anthony trade

    Nov 22, 2010, 8:12 AM EDT

    Image (1) nba_lopez.jpg for post 580

    Nov 19, 2010, 3:25 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Wesley Mathews

    What was Portland’s offensive strategy Thursday night against Denver? How did Wes Mathews and Nicolas Batum end up with 34 points between them? Batum said the plan was to attack with whomever Carmelo Anthony was guarding, he told the Associated Press. “We tried to attack him,” Batum said. “We know that he doesn’t want to…

  17. Game of the night: Denver, Portland prove sloppy can be entertaining

    Nov 19, 2010, 5:42 AM EDT

    Forbes_dunk

    This was kind of a guilty pleasure of a game — it was fun to watch, it came right down to shots at the end, there were some stunning highlight plays. And it was sloppy and messy and filled with missed perimeter shots. Not how you want future generations to play the game, but it…

  18. Rockets not bad, but adrift in NBA’s middle ground without a star to guide them

    Nov 17, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

    rockets_huddle

    There are two parts to constructing a winning team. First, get yourself a superstar or two. Next, get complementary and affordable role players to go around them that fit the system. The Houston Rockets have the second part of this down, it’s the first part that has Daryl Morey stuck. But he’s trying, according to…

  19. George Karl says he wants to coach next season, but health will determine

    Nov 16, 2010, 10:42 PM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_Karl-thumb-250x181-21662.jpg for post 6222

    In one sense, George Karl is just like Carmelo Anthony, Kenyon Martin and JR Smith — who knows if they will be back with the Nuggets next season. Except Karl is for a refreshingly non-monetary reason, as he told the Associated Press before the game. It’s all about his health. “At the end of the…

  20. Vecsey says Carmelo Anthony wants to win now, play for Knicks. We’re confused, too.

    Nov 16, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The conflict in what Carmelo Anthony says he wants is right out there in the open after the latest report: Find a way to make the Nuggets the best team in the West this season — so trade for a big asset without trading anything away — or trade me to the Knicks so I…

  21. Carmelo Anthony says nice things about Denver, but does that change anything?

    Nov 12, 2010, 12:26 PM EDT

    Image (1) Anthony_Bryant-thumb-250x161-21238.jpg for post 4379

    Denver has a good basketball team right now. We were reminded of that last night when they hung with the Lakers in a scoring fest, got good play off the bench (I could swear I saw Al Harrington on help defense) and played enough defense late to hand Los Angeles its first loss. The capacity…

    Image (1) CAnthony_stares-thumb-250x140-17932.jpg for post 3604

    The changing of the guard continues in Denver. With Josh Kroenke — team president and incoming owner — taking a more active role in the front office since this summer there have been a number of changes. Mark Warkentien and Rex Chapman walked out the door this summer. Now Bret Bearup – a powerful advisor…

  24. Carmelo Anthony sounds happy in Denver. Right now.

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    CAnthony_miss

    The Nuggets are playing well — they are right in the mix on the second tier in the west with the Hornets and Spurs. They are 4-2, that with Chauncey Billups struggling with his shot and basically the entire front line injured. So how does that affect Carmelo Anthony’s desire to leave? Hard to say,…

  25. Carmelo Anthony comes to Chicago tonight, but still in Nuggets uniform

    Nov 8, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_thumbsup-thumb-250xauto-21270.jpg for post 4385

    Carmelo Anthony will suit up in Chicago tonight. Still in a Nuggets uniform, though. Luol Deng and Joakim Noah will still put on Bulls uniforms for the game. Denver will come to Chicago in a battle of two teams that have talked about a blockbuster deal but never got it done. Which frustrates a number…
