The following headline, courtesy of Mark Kiszla appeared this morning:
"Kiszla: Nuggets trade Carmelo Anthony? It's possible"
How much is Kiszla being Kiszla and how much is Nuggets propaganda being fed through Kiszla. And of course Kiszla being Kiszla, he wrote it extremely pro Nuggets and continues to bestow his man crush on Silent Stan and Stan's supposed committment "Stan Kroenke craves a championship" though there has never been any actual proof of this craving in word nor action by Stan; just rhetoric by the talking heads.
I fear what we're seeing is a power game. The Nuggets want Melo to sign the extension without any proof by the Nuggets of improving the team. The Nuggets owner & FO have also been extremely quiet, almost too quiet, regarding team improvement save for the very weak "we really really tried to trade for a 2nd round pick in the draft".
Melo wants the Nuggets to show their committment and improve the team before he commits. Does he finally throw up his hands in disgust and say "trade me to NY"?
Who's going to blink first.
