  1. Carmelo Anthony’s Dear John letter to Denver fans

    Mar 3, 2011, 5:52 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony has gone from Denver. Because he forced his way out. But, you know, he still loves you Denver fans. He really appreciates you. Sure, he has moved on the next phase of his career. Bright lights and the big city. But he’ll always care about you. That’s why he left you this goodbye…

  2. Report: George Karl close to three year extension with Denver

    Mar 3, 2011, 12:17 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Have you seen Denver play? Since the trade that was supposed to be the death of the franchise sending it back to the stone ages of rebuilding, I mean? They’re good. They get after it defensively, they have some balance and a real energy. They’re not contending but they are going to push somebody in…

  3. Nuggets lose Gallinari for 7-10 days with broken toe

    Mar 1, 2011, 1:10 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Denver pushed hard to make sure they got Danilo Gallinari as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal, but they’re not going to get much out of him for a week or so. Gallinari sat out Monday night’s Nuggets win against the Hawks and will miss the next week to 10 days because of a broken…

  4. George Karl calls Carmelo bad at defense, Carmelo is unhappy

    Feb 25, 2011, 5:28 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    In an interview taped before last night’s Celtics/Nuggets game on TNT, George Karl was enthusiastic about how the new-look Nuggets would be playing defense now that they didn’t have to “handle what Carmelo gives you” on the defensive end. Anthony apparently noticed, and tweeted the following last night: Damn, are u serious. Some people never…

  5. Video: Rondo’s behind the back assist

    Feb 25, 2011, 9:15 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Boston struggled to put up points Thursday night against Denver, but Rondo did his best to make it easy for his teammates. He ha 8 assists on the night, but none better than this behind-the-back set up for Glen Davis.

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: When you talk contenders, Chicago wants to be mentioned

    Feb 25, 2011, 4:19 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    What you missed while out doing some naked joyriding… Bulls 93, Heat 89: We won’t know until May, really, if the Chicago Bulls are contenders. If they can hang with Miami and Boston for seven games. The defense definitely can, but the ball sticks too much on offense, leaving Derrick Rose to create one-on-three (or…

  7. What to Watch: Melo Debuts for the Knicks

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:55 PM EST

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    After many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many months, Carmelo Anthony has finally been traded to the New York Knicks. He’ll debut tonight beside Amar’e Stoudemire against the Bucks in front of a sold-out crowd which will be buzzing like arguably never before.  But what exactly should we be watching for, exactly? Here are…

  8. Chauncey Billups reminds us of the human side of trades

    Feb 23, 2011, 4:47 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    When an NBA trade gets made, we start breaking it down on the court. Did the Nets get better? What do the Jazz do next? Same with the Nuggets and the Knicks and everyone else. But while we break down if Chauncey Billups is a good fit in the Knicks offense, Billups has to go…

  9. Nuggets GM on Carmelo Anthony deal: “We got killed”

    Denver is not Cleveland. They got something back for their superstar. But Denver was not a winner either in having to trade away Carmelo Anthony, and their GM Masai Ujiri said as much, as the fantastic Chris Tomasson reported at Fanhouse. “We feel we got killed in the trade because we lost a couple of…

  10. Utah’s Deron Williams traded to Nets in surprising deal

    Feb 23, 2011, 11:12 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    In a move that has flown under the radar like a stealth bomber about to unload its payload on an unsuspecting NBA, the New Jersey Nets have acquired Deron Williams from the Utah Jazz. This is a deal that would send D-Will — one of the game’s best point guards — to the Nets. Derrick…

  11. What now for the Nuggets? Playoff push or fast trades?

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:33 AM EST

    Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov

    Congratulations Denver. Sure, having your star player and face of the franchise force his way out of town doesn’t feel like something to be congratulated over, but there is the silver lining you keep hearing about — at least you’re not Cleveland. That’s got to make you feel better, right? You got something in return…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Melo? We don’t need no stinkin’ ‘Melo?

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:09 AM EST

    Grizzlies Nuggets Basketball

    What you missed while you were getting arrested fighting over Girl Scout cookies… The Lakers beatdown of the Hawks was our game of the night. Nuggets 120, Grizzlies 107: That, my friends, is what passion can do. The Melodrama had this team playing like the walking dead for a month. There was no passion —…

  13. The Knickerbocker Empire got its prize in Melo, but the real battle begins now

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:45 PM EST

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    Congratulations, Mr. Dolan! You’ve landed your prize! You have two, count ‘em two, stars to fill the seats in Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony joins Amar’e Stoudemire for the Knicks and the star power is through the roof now in New York. You have successfully acquired a second NBA All-Star, which is difficult to do…

  14. Nuggets plan to keep Felton

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:25 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony’s move to the Big Apple may be taking up all the headline real estate, but Raymond Felton’s departure is also quite notable. He was neither a star nor a New York establishment, but like former-Knicks, now-Nuggets Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, Felton is a quality player and a legitimate starter. However, the Anthony…

  15. With Anthony and Billups, does the Knicks offense really get better?

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:22 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    On a very basic level, the question seems almost absurd. Does the Carmelo Anthony trade make the Knicks offense better? The gut first reaction is “Of course it does. ‘Melo is a scorer going to a system where they just ask guys to get out and score. Match made in heaven.” Then you look at…

  16. Danilo Gallinari to the…. Clippers?

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:47 AM EST

    Image (1) Gallinari_celebrates-thumb-250x166-20310.jpg for post 6298

    Danilo Gallinari is a Denver Nugget. Right now. Right now, anyway. He came to the Rocky Mountains from the Knicks in the deal that sent Carmelo Anthony to where the bright lights will inspire him. But no source we spoke with expects the Nuggets to hang on to Gallinari. Maybe they should — he is…

  17. Carmelo Anthony has his legacy in his hands in New York

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Carmelo Anthony gets mentioned as one of the game’s elite scorers. As he should. Few players can average 25 points a season consistently. Few players in the league can fill it up — from anywhere on the court, creating their own shot — like Anthony. He doesn’t do it terribly efficiently (his shooting percentage is…

  18. Carmelo Anthony traded to Knicks. Finally.

    Feb 21, 2011, 10:26 PM EST

    carmelo anthony

    Carmelo Anthony has been traded to the New York Knicks. Finally. A saga that started this summer when Anthony and his representatives told Denver officials he would opt out of his contract and leave as a free agent if not traded — and that he would only sign an extension with the Knicks — has…

  19. Report: Nuggets coach George Karl likes the Knicks deal best

    Feb 21, 2011, 8:41 PM EST

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

    Coaches often make the worst general managers. They are notoriously bad at structuring trades. Coaches fall in love with players they think give them the best chance of winning right now. GM’s need to think big picture. So not all that surprising that while the Nuggets brass prefers the promise of Derrick Favors and picks…

  20. Report: Nets ending pursuit of Carmelo Anthony. Or Not.

    Feb 21, 2011, 3:36 PM EST

    NBA All Star Game Basketball

    It still appears likely the Knicks will get the big prize. But whether or not the Nets are still fighting for Anthony is up for debate. Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix sent out this tweet Monday afternoon: Source says it appears Nets are “throwing in the towel” on pursuit of Anthony. Al Iannazzone of the Bergen…

  21. If Melo goes to Knicks, Nuggets and Nets may do deal anyway

    Feb 21, 2011, 1:42 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    With all the talking the Nets and Nuggets have done in the last few months, it seems only just that they should do some kind of trade anyway. According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard (via twitter), the two sides would make a deal using the Knicks assets in a separate deal. Sources say NJ in talks…

  22. Report: Carmelo Anthony to give final answer to Nets Monday

    Feb 21, 2011, 10:39 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    More than seven months after the whole drama started, Carmelo Anthony is going to finally make a decision Monday. He is finally going to inform the Nets whether or not he would sign an extension with them, according to the New York Post. If Anthony will sign the three-year, $65 million extension with New Jersey…

  23. Report: Nets leave ‘Melo meeting “not confident,” but Knicks have own issues

    Feb 20, 2011, 9:52 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    The Carmelo Anthony trade saga is nearing its end — finally — but like a soap opera’s final episodes the drama just seems to ramp up for the event. Here is where we stand Sunday morning. Anthony and Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov broke break and had a shot of, um, water at a Los Angeles…

  24. Reports: Anthony says he’ll only sign with Knicks; Also to meet with Nets

    Feb 19, 2011, 7:05 PM EST

    NBA All Star Game Basketball

    UPDATE #2 7:40 pm: Carmelo Anthony is going to meet with the New Jersey Nets tonight — despite what both Prokhorov and Anthony said just hours before — according to Frank Isola of of the New York Daily News. As I said in the main post, take everything with a grain of salt. Actually,  whole…

  25. It has come to this: LeBron feels bad for Carmelo Anthony

    Feb 19, 2011, 4:16 PM EST

    carmelo-lebron-apjpg-9c931e53ff3a4748_large

    After the All-Star Game practice (where we swear we saw Gregg Popovich almost try to do some real coaching at one point) came the usual round of media interviews. East and West mingled together, with LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony sitting right next to each other. This may be the first time ever there was…
