There's been a lot of friction lately regarding the Nuggets trade demands for Carmelo Anthony. I'm writing as a fan of the Denver Nuggets apologizing to other teams for our excessive demands.
I first and foremost want to apologize to the New Jersey Nets
. It does seem like we are asking for a King's ransom in order to secure the services of Carmelo Anthony. After all, the Nets are "on the rise" is in the always competitive and "tough" Eastern Conference with an impressive 9-24 record (as of Jan 1st). We were once a "on the rise" team as well and once we added Carmelo Anthony, we made the playoffs. It does seem like the price of being relevant is a steep for you guys, there's already a nice nucleus in Jersey of Sasha Vujacic
, Travis Outlaw
, Devin Harris
and the "dominant" Center Brook Lopez
. Things are looking up for New Jersey for sure!!
I want to apologize to the New York Knicks. From all the sources (that are coming out of New York coicidentally) it's all has been but confirmed that Carmelo Anthony will ultimately be a Knick. All you have to do is sit back and wait. Mike D'antoni's system has certainly made you an exciting team to watch racking up all sorts of points without having to play defense! Carmelo would be a perfect fit! We do appreciate the offer of sending us Chandler, Fields, Curry, and an obscure 1st round pick. We also appreciate that those players you've offered already have spoken out against playing in Denver! Thank you for the deal!
