Hey Jason,
How about this game so far? We started off really slow, but took the lead late in the second quarter. I thought your Suns were going to run away with this.

Den, NJ, Det could be working feverishly for nothing. Sources say Melo has never told anyone, not even his reps, he's willing to sign in NJ

When will this drama end? I feel bad for you Nuggets fans. You guys probably just want to move on with this already.

By boy Triple A went off big tonight! Love it, such a hard worker and has a promising future.

Great spark provided by Ty also, was hoping he would knock out Dragic to be honest. :laugh:

But PLEASE just get Melo out of here. If the Net stuff isn't going to work, ship him to NY for something.

I just want him gone and want to start "rebuilding" somewhat.

But if you trade Melo, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't get rid of Billups.

New rumors have Melo possibly going to the Knicks, and I think they only have a 1st as far as picks go - which is nothing if you ask me because they are already a pretty good team.

Yeah, the Nets. I don't think we'll trade Melo to the Knicks unless he says he won't go to NJ. Plus(if the three-team deal with Memphis is the direction they go), I don't like OJ Mayo......he's a jerk(IMO) and does not fill a need.

The Knicks are already a good team and will likely be better with Melo, so that means the draft picks won't be that high.

At the beginning of the season, pretty much the same deal was on the table. I hope waiting doesn't end up costing us.

Broncoholic3233
01-15-2011, 01:56 AM
I want him to stay :(

He is good, that is for sure. I hesitate to call him a superstar though.

I see a superstar as a player that truly changes a game. As much as I hate Lebron he has all the tools. He can shoot, he passes and he rebounds. He also plays defense.

Melo, until this year, only did the shooting part. This year he has finally be rebounding more. But he still is a ballstopper, he doesn't pass. He also doesn't play defense.

So, I have no problem with him going away and getting a few good players, along with 2-3 picks for chances at 2-3 more really good players.

Melo isn't the type of player that will win you a championship, he just isn't. We got Chauncey for that reason, and we played great, made it to the western conference finals, and lost.

We need height. We have plenty of people that can shoot ,but we don't play defense and we are out matched on the boards typically. If we can get a decent/good SF and a PF/C prospect for Melo and draft picks, hell yeah count me in.

Especially after today, his dream is to play in NY, that is fine, he grew up there, but he obviously doesn't want to be here anymore and I, along with many fans don't want him here anymore. He is getting booed at games and he really just isn't welcomed anymore.

I want the trade to happen sooner than later, and hopefully our front office doesn't screw us over.....wishful thinking it seems.

The most important thing today is having a dominant bigman, and that's what the Nuggets lack. They're potentially getting a Superstar PF/C in Favors. Melo isn't a superstar, and has hit his ceiling.

The Denver Post http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_17139284?source=rss#ixzz1BWd68gIE

Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov flew from Russia to New Jersey today to say his team would no longer pursue Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony.

"There comes a time when the price is simply too expensive," he said during a news conference in New Jersey this afternoon. "I'm instructing our team to walk away from the deal."

Prokhorov said his meeting with Anthony, which was set for Thursday, is canceled.

"It's been too long and too expensive," he said.

When asked if that was a final decision, he responded, "for sure."

"It's my own decision," Prokhorov said. "(The Nuggets) had a very good proposal. They probably did their best to protect their interests.

But "I never met with Carmelo and I never spoke with him. Maybe he sent me an email, but i didn't see it. Or maybe the carrier pigeon got lost."

Prokhorov added: "I never received any negative information. But there was no direct information. It's my feeling of strategy."

When asked if he'd spoken with the Nuggets to tell them the deal was dead, he said: "No. You're the first to know."


Huge failure from that joke of a FO we have. :brick:

Now Knicks probably won't offer that much....they really don't have any competition anymore...

Part of me wants to say we get run out of the building again but the other half is thinking 109 to 104 LA. Both teams need this win in a major way to get things back on track. Last game Nene exposed Gasol BAD.

*We have played 3 games in a rown with minimal attempts from the line. Is this the game we get the whistle on are side again?

As the Nets front office would put it, the Nuggets front office is 'The Mickey Mouse Club."

I may be wrong, but I think they totally messed this whole thing up. The Nets have now backed out of the trade and the Knicks aren't going to be able to give us nearly as much.

Why should they even give us anything? They know they can just get Melo at the end of the season without having to give up any picks or players.

The Nuggets should have traded Melo to the Nets at the beginning of the season when the offer was on the table - EVERYBODY knew he wanted to go to New York, but the front office took a gamble on him changing his mind and staying here. They gambled, and they are going to lose.

If we have learned anything from the Nuggets front office over the years, it is that they screw up all the personell moves eventually. This 5 year run of playoffs with essentially 1 good player, and a team of role players, and one potential HOFer in Billups has still netted them jack squat, so Melo is gonna bail to a team that has no chance against Boston, or Miami, or Orlando in the East??

It all just really makes NO SENSE whatsoever!

Now granted I am biased being a huge Duke fan, I wanted to get other Nuggets fans opinion on this.

If we lose Melo (seems like a sure thing), in the draft should we take Kyle Singler to take his spot.

Not really sure how high Singler would go, but he is one hell of a player. He has good size at 6'8, 230lbs. He has a hell of a shot and he is a leader. He's also learned under one of the best, if not the best in Coach K.

I'd personally love him here, with or without Melo here to be honest.

His words are harsh, but he is right IMO. I'm not the biggest fan of Melo. But I will never boo anyone wearing a Nugget uniform.

That is the thing, when you are a professional athlete, you have to watch what you say. He called us idiots and stupid, two separate times.

If he disagrees with what we are doing, you say it professionally, something like "They really shouldn't boo him, it isn't the right thing too do". But he didn't, so now I have lost all respect for him.

I haven't boo'd him, but I also don't really think its that big of a deal, people are expressing our displeasure he won't sign here. He should know people are booing because people don't want him to leave, they want him too stay, not just to hate on him.

Right, and I think that is what Kobe is meaning to say, but he said it terribly and is going to receive much more hate now, deservedly so imo.

I want him gone, I am not gonna lie. It's been a great 7 year run with him, but I think it is time to move on. I really wanted Favors now, so if that is off the table, I am not really sure anymore.

I am split now, whether we should take a worse deal, or just keep him and hope he signs.

Toss up.

I really want him to re-sign, but I doubt it will happen.

The key for Denver is to get another team interested so there may be doubt for NY that he may not be there next year.

At this point I think we will probably get Chandler and Curry for Melo. Thats about it. That will change if we get another team interested.

He isn't afraid to drive and he isn't afraid to crash the boards which is great. He is a very intelligent player, works hard as hell and has one hell of a shot. Most importantly though, he plays defense.

If you want to take the time, here are some great highlights of him:

JR is one of my favorite players. But he is also the most frustrating. He has as much talent as any 2 guard in the league. But he gets in his own way too much. He was late to shoot around last night so he deserved to be benched.

Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reported late Friday night that multiple sources tell him that Carmelo Anthony's agent, Leon Rose, has begun informing teams that Anthony will only sign an extension with the Knicks.

There have been varying reports and sources have been wrong and/or misleading in the past, but we've had the Knicks pegged as his probable destination and it appears the dominoes are falling into place. The key question is whether or not Donnie Walsh wants a happy superstar, which means signing Anthony to the extension he wants, and beating trade offers from the teams that would rent him for the playoffs.

We tend to think that if Walsh wants Melo in his future he will want him happy, but if Walsh balks then things could spin out of control. Regardless, owners of Knicks players continue to be put on notice.

It could make the Lakers very scary, but it would take a lot for Melo and Kobe to work things out this year. Either way, I'd still prefer us to not get screwed out of a good player than making another team better. Plus, I would hate the Lakers more than I ever thought I could. :peace:

This has all the looks of a little mind game the Nuggets are playing with the Knicks in attempt for them to sweeten the pot. They did the exact same thing to NJ by trying to get Dallas, Houston and even Orlando (for a short while) involved so the Nets would throw everything at them.

I wouldn't want to touch Carmelo with a stick. The dude cannot perform come playoff time and would cause more damage than anything else in the long run. Andrew Bynum, when healthy, is a force and is still too young to give up yet.

Denver is looking like a bigger joke as the days go by. I'm sure when Carmelo bolts to NYC in June, the Nuggets FO will try to blame every other team out there (NJ in particular) for the failure to move him before he became a free agent.

Denver is looking like a bigger joke as the days go by. I'm sure when Carmelo bolts to NYC in June, the Nuggets FO will try to blame every other team out there (NJ in particular) for the failure to move him before he became a free agent.

They have nobody but themselves to blame too.

EVERYBODY could see it by the end of last summer that he didn't want to sign an extension with Denver, yet the Nuggets front office thought they could somehow convince him to stay.

My guess is that if they do move him, it will pretty much be for peanuts at this point. They should have traded him to the Nets before the season started.

I'm sorry but from a Lakers fan's point of view, I'm not buying into this trade very much at all. This has all the looks of a little mind game the Nuggets are playing with the Knicks in attempt for them to sweeten the pot. They did the exact same thing to NJ by trying to get Dallas, Houston and even Orlando (for a short while) involved so the Nets would throw everything at them.

Im with you on this 100% Spyder.

Most laker fans agree and understand what Bynum brings to this team but chatter around league seems to think other wise. NOBODY wants Bynum. Most people outside of LA see him as an overpaid center with bad knees who is injury-prone. I truly don't believe Denver would even consider doing this trade. They said weeks ago that they have zero interest in Bynum. But it is obvious that Denver offered no such deal...this is all fake discussion to scare NY.

When all is said and done , I honestly feel Melo stays a Nugget this year and walks after the season. He is then free to join any contender he wants.

Another thing the lakers have working for them is a possible d12 trade with orlando after the season. Howard has expressed he wants to play for Lakers and be a contender each year. A center for a center trade would benefit both teams and be a major salary dump for Orlando.

Realistically I think D12 has a better chance to become a Laker then Melo but its still nice to dream.

I agree about Dwight Howard. I believe next year is the final year on his contract and everyone, including those in Orlando, believe he wants to bolt for a better chance to win consistently. No one except the Thunder scare me long term in the Western Conference, the Spurs are going to present a big challenge this year obviously but because of age, it's nothing I'm too worried about moving forward.

Deron Williams will also be a FA after next season (I believe) and rumors suggest he's expressed quite a bit of interest in playing for the Lakers. He could kind of take over that Superstar role once Kobe starts hitting the twilight dwindle of his career.

Back on the Carmelo drama. I just won't buy into the Nuggets actually going through with it. It'd be the best deal they could get by far, especially if a third team would toss in a 1st RND selection, but it's all chatter to me to get the Knicks in desperation mode. Carmelo wants to play in NYC and has made it known for atleast a year now. He'll be there in a few months, I guarantee it.

The only possible trade I could see Denver making is sending Carmelo to Dallas as a rental for their playoff run, though I still don't believe that will actually happen as Denver's FO believes that with a healthy lineup, they can still make some noise this post season.

All of this drama must REALLY be crap on the Nuggets fans. Sadly this may just be the tip of the iceberg as they're likely to go through the same thing Toronto and Cleveland went through.

To be honest, I don't think Denver will be nearly as bad without Carmelo as Cleveland has been without Lebron.

That's if they don't blow the whole thing up and trade everyone away - which they might.

I think the team will actually play better without Melo and his selfish play and might surprise some people. There is still the potential that the new CBA will have a franchise tag, and the Nuggets will be able to franchise Melo next year. Then we would basically be facing the same thing we did this year, except maybe the front office would be smart enough to pull the trigger right away.

If I'm the Knicks, I still try to make some move for Melo because wasn't it a forgone conclusion that Lebron was going to the Knicks about a year and a half ago?

You never know what happens once a player hits free agency.

I actually agree 100% with you that the Nuggets would be better off without Carmelo, I've longed believed this. Granted they could come up with one more solid scorer and keep the bulk of their team together. JR Smith has gradually become a little less selfish than just a few years ago and Nene is playing much, much better. Finally coming into his own in a way.

My comment was more on the line that with the amount of FAs the Nuggets are said to have at years end, I've read many articles that once Carmelo is either traded or walks in free agency, the FO will likely blow the team up and start over again.

Who really knows at this point though about anything with the Nuggets.

Ya that's very true. I've heard that they definitely want to unload K-Mart, Harrington, and possibly Jr Smith too, which doesn't make any sense to me. If you get rid of Melo, you have to keep the young kid who can go off and score 30 a night.

Also, you just signed Al Harrington last offseason to a multi-year deal, and now you can't wait to get rid of him? :confused:

Birdman has been completely useless since the WCF two years ago.

I'm all for unloading K-Mart, but I don't see the need to blow the whole team up. Jr. Smith is young and can score, I think Chauncey should retire in Denver coming off the bench, and I think Al Harrington will benefit greatly from Melos absence.

The three guys going forward that I would be really excited about are Lawson, Nene, and Afflalo.

OAKLAND, CALIF. Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony said today he would "take a real hard look" at signing a three-year, $65 million contract extension with the Nuggets if he is not dealt by the Feb. 24 trading deadline.
The Nuggets have had the contract extension on the table since June. This is the first time since he was offered the contract that Anthony said publicly he might sign it.
Talking this morning after the team's shootaround, Anthony brushed off recent reports that he might be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.
"I've never heard of that. That was a new one," Anthony said.
"It is what it is. Everyday is something different. I guess now is the Lakers."


exactly what i thought would happen. with the new cba about to be in place i knew melo would have to consider all that money on the table. hopefully this happens and maybe we can bring in a big name player once the season is done. I for one think we need a true, dominate center. nene has done well for us but he is still playing out of position.

also would make it easier to unload k-mart since we could move nene back to forward like he should be

This would have been true last year for sure, I couldn't stand Nene. I still really don't like him, he has way to much potential to be as soft as he is.

But he has improved drastically this year from years past, I would know, I watch all 82 Nuggets games.

I don't want us signing him to some huge contract, which he will probably want, but if its reasonable, we gotta resign him.

He is a PF playing C. We need a true, big C, so Nene can go to the PF position.

As for the Bynum for Melo rumor. That is ridiculous, I agree. First off, from what Laker fans have said calling into 104.3 the fan, Bynum is a softy too and his work ethic blows. Pretty much they were just ragging on Bynum. They also didn't want Melo, because he is too selfish.

Anyways, that trade won't happen, it is just a smokescreen as well, I believe.

Yeah, I still don't think he signs though. He is just saying this so NY will be like, crap, we gotta make a reasonable offer, or he could remain a Nugget.

So I think he is just saying the right things....

As for Nene, in the post before I said my thoughts, and I agree with you, he is out of position. He is a PF in my book because he is too soft to be a Center. We really, really need a Center, hopefully we can draft a good one sometime soon, they are so hard to find though.

Yep. Z's strength is in his ability to pull the other team's bigs out of the paint on offense. He hasn't had a post game in ten years. He's a liability defensively. He gives you size, but can't make rotations and has never had good recognition defensively. His size is also misleading. He plays small defensively. Dwight Howard (along with others) used him regularly. He actually hurt the Cavs last year, because his shot was flat most of the season (including the post season). That was the main reason to have him in the rotation.

I don't know how the Lakers could get away with Melo in the starting lineup. They already suck at playing team defense (no one wants to hold anyone else accountable defensively, and we know Jackson isn't going to do it). Melo is a playmaker, and that's not going to mesh with Kobe and Gasol. I wouldn't rule it out though. The thing about the triangle is that it calls for isolation, back cuts, and post entry. They could keep everyone involved without dramatically changing the offense. I just don't know if the Lakers would want to stake their season on whether or not Melo would be willing to buy into that "Lamar Odom" type of role.

Doubt that.

Karl is one of the best coaches in the league, yet we never play defense.

As some radio hosts were saying on the radio the other day, its a players league now, players don't want to play defense, so they don't.

Really, very few teams are good defensive teams anymore, it sucks, but its true. Now, it might be your coach, but I wouldn't blame it solely on him.

Plus, I think the Nuggets keep Melo now. Whether he re-signs or leaves at the end of the year, is to be determined.

He had hurt his knee the game before early on. So he missed that game, and the Golden State game, but he was back last night for the Mavericks game.

Probably wanted to rest him up on the first of a back to back to be safe, we really needed him for the Mavericks.

There's this big misconception that Melo doesn't have any talent around him here in Denver.

Put Lebron on this team for the past 7 years, and I guarantee he has more than 1 WCF appearance, and he probably has a title or two.

This.

Denver has had a pretty damn solid core for atleast 3-4 years now, if not longer. I don't know who was a bigger playoff disappointment throughout the years.. Yao/McGrady's Rockets or the Nuggets. Granted the Nuggets still don't know how to win and much of that stems from Carmelo not being the player many think he is. He's a glorified street ball player who can score in bunches but doesn't do much else.

Put Lebron in Denver, Kobe or even Dwayne Wade and the Nuggets would have atleast one ring if not two by now.

I'll never back off my claims that Carmelo is completely overrated. I still believe as a whole the Nuggets would be a better team WITHOUT him. Add one more big man and with Arron Afflalo's sudden role and I guarantee the Nuggets will be competing for years to come. Unless the FO decides to blow up the team, which isn't out of the realm of possibilities.

The Knicks have enough, they're just not willing to give it up.

Danilo Gallinari is really underrated. I would take him, Chandler, and a first from another team for Melo in a second. I would much rather have that then Bynum...

Gallinari is putting up 16 PPG, and would do much better here. He has awesome size for a SF, and is a hell of a 3 pt shooter. With him, Chandler, and the 1st Rounder we can build a good team without completely stripping down.

PG- Billups, Lawson- Billups is still a very good PG, and can lead us into the playoffs this year with or without Melo. I have loved the Lawson pick from the beginning and think he will be a good PG for a long time. We are set at this position.

SG- Arron Afflalo, JR Smith- This position would probably become our strongest point after Melo leaves. Afflalo is a good defender, and is really starting to develop into a good scorer this year. JR can be great some nights, and horrible others. If he can get some consistency, he could be our leading scorer.

SF- Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler- I've already said I really like Gallinari, he gives us size that we need, especially against LA. I like Chandler coming off the bench here also.

PF- Al Harrington, Kenyon Martin- This is really our only hole in the lineup if the trade goes down. Harrington will do for this year. Then we can get a starting PF in F/A with Martin's contract off the books, or in the draft with our acquired 1st rounder.

C- Nene, Birdman- Not great, but Nene has shown improvement every year, and in all reality is a PF playing Center right now because that is where we need him. I think the better option is to get a real Center through F/A or the draft, and move Nene to PF.

We are not as far away from being a competitive team without Melo as some think...

If you guys end up getting Sullinger, I may consider converting to the Nuggets. At least, they'll be my new second fav team. He says that he's coming back next year, but we'll see what the agents and runners have to say about that. I really think that Sullinger is the third best player ever to come out of OH. Behind LeBron and Hondo. He has a natural talent in the post, but will have to work on his perimeter game in the league.

http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/nba/news/story?id=6133683


New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov, through his spokeswoman, has publicly restated last month's proclamation that his team is done chasing a trade for Carmelo Anthony.

"Mikhail has not changed his mind," Ellen Pinchuk told The Associated Press in an e-mail Thursday.

But sources close to the situation told ESPN.com the Denver Nuggets -- after Wednesday's widespread reports the Nets have indeed rejoined the New York Knicks in the Anthony Sweepstakes -- are operating under the assumption Prokhorov and Anthony will meet face-to-face at All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles.

The Nuggets would encourage the meeting, sources said, because trading with New Jersey has always appealed more to the Nuggets than dealing with the Knicks. Denver is known to covet Nets rookie Derrick Favors more than any other player who's been made available to the Nuggets in a trade saga that dates to mid-September. Sources say the Nuggets, furthermore, remain well aware that New Jersey will not consent to an Anthony trade, no matter what is agreed to between the teams, unless Anthony agrees to sign a three-year, $65 million contract extension with the Nets.

Before Prokhorov so forcefully pulled the Nets out of the Anthony chase at a Jan. 19 news conference, New Jersey was pressing hard to secure a face-to-face meeting with the All-Star forward so the Russian billionaire and Nets minority owner Jay-Z could directly sell Anthony on the team's future in Brooklyn and address Anthony's presumed reluctance to sign the extension in hopes of getting him to change that stance.

Sources told ESPN.com on Thursday night that Prokhorov, despite Pinchuk's statement, has been negotiating directly with Nuggets ownership this week while awaiting confirmation of a meeting in which the Nets might be able to lobby Anthony to abandon his long-standing determination to land with the Knicks.

The trading deadline is less than a week away, at 3 p.m. Feb. 24.

Yahoo! Sports reported Thursday night that the Nets, in the latest iteration of the trade, are prepared to send Devin Harris, Troy Murphy, Ben Uzoh and four first-round picks along with Favors to Denver for Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Melvin Ely and Renaldo Balkman.

But sources told ESPN.com not all of those picks would wind up in Denver. At least one of the first-rounders is earmarked to be packaged with Murphy to a third team -- either in this trade or in a separate deal -- because the Nuggets have maintained for months that they're unwilling to absorb Murphy's $12 million expiring contract for luxury-tax reasons. The Nets and Nuggets have engaged numerous teams over the course of the season -- including Minnesota, Cleveland and Detroit -- in an attempt to find a landing spot other than Denver for Murphy.

It remains to be seen how the Knicks will respond to the latest apparent threat from their neighbors in New Jersey, with the Nets possessing assets that have kept them in the hunt for Anthony despite the open secret around the league that Madison Square Garden is Anthony's preferred destination.

The Knicks have been reluctant for months to part with promising youngsters such as Danilo Gallinari and rookie swingman Landry Fields, believing that gutting their roster to get Anthony makes little long-term sense. Yet one source close to the situation echoed the rising belief that GM Donnie Walsh might have no choice if Knicks owner James Dolan, as many observers anticipate, takes a Melo-at-all-costs stance.

"Don't forget Donnie is still trying to get a contract extension," the source said, suggesting that finding a way to acquire Anthony now, whatever the Knicks give up, might be the clincher for Walsh to get his own extension.

Yet it's believed that Anthony can once and for all squash New Jersey's interest if he tells Prokhorov himself that he doesn't want to sign the extension with the Nets. Prokhorov longs to have a full-fledged star in place before the Nets' planned move to Brooklyn for the 2012-13 season, but New Jersey can't give up assets such as Favors and multiple draft picks without knowing they have Anthony locked up long-term.

One source said that the Dallas Mavericks -- long considered right there with Houston at the top of the list of teams willing to gamble on trading for Anthony without his signature on a contract extension -- have been sufficiently convinced Anthony remains determined to get to New York. The source said the Mavs have thus decided that there's no way they could include prized young guard Roddy Beaubois in a trade with Denver because keeping Anthony beyond this season would be so difficult.

The Nets have remained quietly confident all season, despite the collapse of multi-team near-deals for Anthony in September (involving Charlotte and Utah) and January (Detroit), that Anthony would eventually agree to extend with them after meeting with Prokhorov and Jay-Z.

ESPN.com reported Wednesday that Anthony, meanwhile, has grown frustrated with New York's inability to complete the trade and corresponding reports that New York is hesitant to surrender Gallinari and/or Fields.

Sources close to Anthony have long maintained that the 26-year-old wants so badly to wind up in New York that he'd be willing to opt out of the final year of his current contract and become a free agent this summer, even if it means potentially losing millions of dollars under the terms of the next collective bargaining agreement. But Anthony's willingness to leave significant money on the table has seemed to wane as the Feb. 24 trade deadline draws nearer.

ESPN.com also reported Wednesday that Denver likes Wilson Chandler, Gallinari, Fields and Timofey Mozgov and wants two, if not three, of those players as well as Knicks point guard Raymond Felton in exchange for Anthony and Billups. There have also been numerous reports that such a deal would also include a first-round pick from Minnesota going to Denver -- with the Wolves acquiring Anthony Randolph from the Knicks -- but New York is reluctant to part with so much of Amare Stoudemire's supporting cast.

#1 :salute: Can't wait to have you in our front office if we aren't able to have you as a player again.



Oh,

bye Melo, thanks for the 7-8 years of playoffs, when we only got out of the first round once.


BUT, these may just be more rumors, who knows.

But also, yes, we will win a Title before Melo. :D
