Well, thank GOD. Now we know for sure, well, presumably, that the Denver Nuggets aren’t going to trade Carmelo Anthony this offseason.
Not even a week removed from the NBA Finals and we’re already getting agent-driven NBA stories. Awesome.
Shouldn’t we be focusing on the run-up to this summer’s Olympic Games in Beijing or something? You know, reasserting America’s dominance in basketball and all that. Well, I guess not.
For his part, Melo’s agent Calvin Andrews told this to ESPN the Magazine’s Chris Broussard:
“He’s not going to be moved. It’s not happening. We’ve been given assurances from the owner on down.”
Well, good. Now Melo, Allen Iverson and J.R. Smith can continue leaving all the defense to Marcus Camby and never stand a chance to win a playoff series.
