Anthony's back....but for how long?

Posted by chazgarcia | Sunday, January 02, 2011 | 4 comments »

The 2010-2011 NBA season has been packed with many interesting moves, trades, and acquisitions. The Denver Nuggets have no doubt been right smack dab in the middle of trade controversy themselves. This, of course, has to do with the Nuggets' lead scorer Carmelo Anthony. Anthony's contract comes to an end after this season, and he has not yet agreed to the Nuggets' contract extension offer of $65 million over a span of three years. Carmelo still has not clearly stated that he plans to leave, yet he has also not indicated his intentions to stay. As of right now, the teams who might have the best shot at Anthony are New Jersey, New York, and as of late, Mark Cuban's Dallas Mavericks. It is nearly impossible to find out what is going on in the offices of the Nuggets as limited, viable information has been leaked on the subject.

Amidst all the trade talk, Anthony's family was hit with the tragedy of his eldest sister passing away due to medical reasons. This affected the Nuggets on the court as Anthony missed five games while Denver went 2-3 through this stretch.

Now, Anthony is getting back into the swing of things as he helped the Nuggets win big on Saturday against the Sacramento Kings. Heading into their game on Monday hosting the Houston Rockets , Denver finds themselves three games behind Utah for the Northwest division lead. The Nuggets (19-13), are also riding on a three game win streak due in part to huge performances by Chauncey Billups in the absence of Anthony. Billups has gone 11-13 from three point range in those three wins.

So how long will the Carmelo Anthony talk last? Where will he go? What will be Denver's reaction? As the Nuggets' season continues, we can expect these questions to be answered before we know it!

    This season's star packed Heat, show that, despite a rough start, you can have multiple stars on a team, and be successful. Do you think that Anthony has the maturity to handle being on another team that already has star power??
