  1. Chris Anderson’s “Free Bird” neck tattoo… brought to you by Technicolor

    I didn’t think any tattoo a Denver Nugget could get would surprise me anymore. I was wrong. On a team with more tats than the Ink and Iron Festival, Chris “Birdman” Anderson has raised the bar. It’s his “Free Bird” tattoo. With some sort of exploding rainbow of color and flames that… I really don’t…

  2. Report: Andre Miller brought in to now-dead Melo trade talks

    This is Vescey-time, so get your grain of salt ready. The “notable” writer for the New York Post reports today that during the final stages of the four-team deal for Carmelo Anthony to be shipped to the Nets, the Blazers were involved in talks. Vescey reports that Charlotte was swapped out with Portland, with Portland…

  3. Al Harrington to miss two weeks with a foot injury, return just in time for the regular season opener

    Oct 10, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    Al Harrington

    The Denver Nuggets are already without their starting power forward from last season due to a knee injury, and now they’ll also lose their monumental off-season acquisition for the remainder of the preseason. Al Harrington was the one significant piece the Nuggets added this summer, but according to the Associated Press, they’ll be without his…

  4. Al Harrington to miss rest of preseason for Denver… at least

    Oct 9, 2010, 4:42 PM EDT

    AHarrington_Nuggetintro

    Al Harrington was brought in to Denver to provide some depth on the front line, to be the healthy big man while Kenyon Martin and Chris Anderson get their bodies right. So much for that plan. Harrington will miss at least the rest of the preseason with a partially torn plantar fascia in his left…

  5. What George Karl really told Carmelo Anthony

    A few days into training camp, George Karl and Carmelo Anthony had a sit down that has been the focus of a lot of speculation. What exactly did Karl say. He opened up about that a little more on 104.3 The Fan in Denver the other day (transcript by Sports Radio Interviews). Karl is a…

  6. Denver sends scout to watch Derrick Favors, but no trade movement on ‘Melo yet

    Oct 8, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    Image (5) Favors_rookie.jpg for post 3738

    The holding pattern on the Carmelo Anthony trade front continues. Denver is asking too much. Anthony will only go to a couple of locations. Other teams are tired of playing this silly game. So we sit and wait for somebody, somewhere to come to their senses. But it should be noted that Denver had a…

  7. NBA Preview: Denver Nuggets

    Oct 7, 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

    nuggets_huddle

    Last season: 53-29, tied them for the four seed in the West, but without George Karl on the sidelines (due to cancer treatments) they got bumped off in six games by a Mehmet Okur-less Jazz team. Head Coach: George Karl is back after missing the second half of last season ad the playoffs battling throat…

  8. Report: Nuggets find market drying up for huge Carmelo Anthony deal

    Oct 6, 2010, 10:40 PM EDT

    The Nuggets are asking a lot for Carmelo Anthony in a trade: good young players and draft picks for the future, enough established talent to keep them in the playoffs now, plus cap relief that keeps them below the luxury tax. And a date with Scarlett Johansson. And a DeLorean that can travel through time.…

  9. Carmelo Anthony: "I never said I want to play for the Nets."

    Oct 4, 2010, 9:43 AM EDT

    An exchange yesterday from training camp gives us a little insight into Carmelo Anthony’s thinking. And how it’s really about moving where he wants, not winning. Anthony’s people (never Anthony publicly) have been pushing for a trade to get him out of Denver and he said there is a 50/50 chance he is gone before…

  10. Melo says it's "50-50" if he's in Denver on opening night

    Oct 3, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony has said all the right things in Denver since showing up for training camp amid a firestorm of reports concerning his future. He’s said he loves Denver, will be a Nugget, and plans to lead the team. He wasn’t part of the promo videos, but other than that, there’s been a lot to…

  11. Carmelo Anthony better get used to the boos

    Oct 2, 2010, 7:04 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony went to an MMA event in suburban Denver the other night, according to Chris Tommason at FanHouse. As they do at just about every sporting event — including NBA games in some cities — the celebrities in the crowd get shown on the big screen. Anthony’s picture went up. The crowd booed. Anthony…

  12. What exactly did Kenyon Martin expect?

    Oct 2, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    We brought you news from FanHouse yesterday that Kenyon Martin was not going to be rushing back from injury to help the Nuggets because he’s miffed they elected to give Al Harrington “their money.” Martin’s in no hurry to help out the Nuggets after they failed to give him a big contract extension. Now, Kenyon…

  13. Kenyon Martin is not rushing back to help out the Nuggets

    Oct 1, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    A lot of guys got contract extensions this summer. Kenyon Martin was not one of them. What he did get was knee surgery. And he’s pretty ticked about it. Check out these comments to FanHouse’s Chris Tomasson: “(It is) my last year of my deal. We all know it. Ain’t nobody in a hurry to…

  14. George Karl asks Carmelo Anthony to focus on this season, not next

    Sep 30, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    George Karl and Carmelo Anthony finally had a sit down, face-to-face conversation. The two guys that, one way or another, will most determine just how far the Nuggets go this season. Karl’s words — focus on this team, this season. Not trades or the summer. Be present, because this Nuggets team could be good. Anthony…

  15. Carmelo Anthony says he's happy to play in Denver this season

    Sep 29, 2010, 4:57 PM EDT

    It’s not personal, it’s business. It’s not about playing in Denver, it’s about keeping his options open for next summer. That was essentially the line out of Carmelo Anthony after Nuggets practice today. Here are the tweets of FanHouse’s Chris Tomasson: Melo said he would have no problem starting the season with Denver. It’s all…

  16. Carmelo Anthony calls court his "safe haven" as four-team trade dies

    Sep 28, 2010, 4:35 PM EDT

    The trade rumors are still there — even as the much-discussed four-team trade is dead. The talk will not die no matter what happens with this round of rumors, there will be another and another and… Carmelo Anthony wants to get away from those rumors. Probably more than he wants to get away from Denver.…

  17. Jason Kidd calls "B.S." on report he tried to talk 'Melo out of New Jersey

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:58 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony clearly is having second thoughts about taking his talents to New Jersey. Can’t imagine why. We just listened to Springsteen’s “Born To Run” and he made it sound like such a wonderful place. Then there was the report from Sam Amick of FanHouse that Jason Kidd warned Melo about the perils of New…

  18. Carmelo Anthony isn't part of team promotional filming

    Sep 28, 2010, 9:23 AM EDT

    Whatever state of limbo it may be in, the trade talks for Carmelo Anthony are not dead. The best sign of that: Denver did not ask him to participate in any of the team’s promotional filming on media day. We all read the quotes about the upcoming season on media day, but another part of…

  19. Carmelo Anthony sounds like LeBron, says he'll keep his options open

    Sep 27, 2010, 3:32 PM EDT

    “I’m here today… Whatever the future holds, it holds. I’m leaving my options open right now. That was Carmelo Anthony today, sounding a lot like LeBron James a year before. What the Denver Nuggets want to avoid is a LeBron repeat — an entire season of speculation followed by losing their best player and getting…

  20. Carmelo Anthony at Nuggets camp. Now what?

    Sep 27, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony is in the Nuggets locker room. The talks around trading him continue to swirl. Those two things we know… So, now what? We wait. Wait for Anthony to speak at camp (which he may or may not do, things keep changing). Wait for someone to blink. For Anthony to sign a deal and…

  21. Denver, Philadelphia talking Carmelo Anthony, Andre Iguodala trade

    Sep 26, 2010, 8:04 PM EDT

    UPDATE 8:04 pm: The Daily News is now reporting that Anthony’s people said he would not sign an extension in Philly. Which would make any other negotiations moot. Basically, Melo’s people trying to keep the Knicks and Bulls in play, the Nuggets keep looking for the best deal with little interest in making Melo happy.…

  22. Hey Carmelo, if not the Knicks or Nets, how about the Timberwolves?

    Sep 26, 2010, 5:57 PM EDT

    If the four-team blockbuster with the Nets falls through, if the Nuggets are not going to accept a deal from the Knicks, if the Bulls are not throwing Joakim Noah in the deal, what is Carmelo Anthony going to do? How about the Minnesota Timberwolves? We’re not kidding, there was this note in the Twin…

  23. Nets players practicing, trying to ignore large cloud over court

    Sep 26, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    It’s no fun when the talk of training camp is who is not there, not who is. But that’s where it stands for the Nets, who have made their play for Carmelo Anthony right at the start of training camp. That is the talk, whether Anthony will sign an extension to come to the Nets…

  24. Kobe's advice to Carmelo Anthony: Do what makes you happy

    Sep 26, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant has been there. He has demanded a trade, he has wanted out, wanted to be anywhere else. He has wanted to go where he was relevant and the management wanted to win. Yet he also learned the Wizard of Oz lesson — there is no place like home. Kobe has spoken to Carmelo…

  25. Anthony, Nuggets have to play ball together one way or another

    Sep 26, 2010, 10:35 AM EDT

    The rumors just keep flying around a four-team trade that would bring Carmelo Anthony to New York seems to be slipping away. Why? Because Denver and Anthony can’t seem to play nice together. So it looks more and more like they will have to play together on the court to start the season in what…
