Carmelo Anthony on Playing in Denver: ‘I Would Love to’

Melo told the media in Denver that he’s fully committed to the team this season, but hinted at some disagreement with management’s outlook. From the Post: “Though Carmelo Anthony said all the right things Wednesday about playing for the Nuggets this season — ‘I would love to’ — and denied he was even asked to sign a contract extension to make a trade with the Nets work (contrary to what league sources said), he did give a small glimpse of behind-the-scenes disagreements. General manager Masai Ujiri and Denver front-office executives have publicly said they hoped that Melo would agree to re-sign with Denver, but they were unable to get a sitdown meeting with him this summer. On Wednesday, Melo said: ‘I met with Masai right before media day (Monday). He said what he had to say; I had what I had to say. We discussed a lot of things out there on the table.’ Then Anthony was asked, ‘Were the things he had to say different from the things you had to say?’ Melo: ‘Yes. Yes.’”

    “I would love to!”…”but my wife won’t let me” Carmelo did not necessarily add.

    I see you Carmelo saying all the right things. But everyone knows you can’t wait til the season ends so you can get your Lebron on and chunk deuces to Denver.

    Should we expect a Vince Carter-esque final half/quarter season in denver? Que the John Thompson interview…

    Is it just me or is this trumped up hype for ratings for a show that stars a nobody who is desperately trying to make a name for herself?? I mean cool you marrie a “q” list star, but this just seems so contrived! Every team he even mentioned was so asininely out of the question as far as a trade. And the NJ deal would have screwed DEN immensley! An extra 10 mil for favors?… Make up ur mind Melo, do u want to win, or do you want ‘-n’ the hollowood “try so hards”

    cosign Shanoooo, yeah Melo is on the move, alot of players are thinking Lebron-like, stack up your squad so when finger get pointed you can say, “he make the same amount of money as me so blame them too!” Wich in turn starts a new Era of the Super Teams….. three superstars and eleven league minimum players…

    “Wait… there is the last “big freeagent”!”…” What do you mean, he is no FA, plus its just Melo…?”…”Yeah, youre right… But lets jump on it anyway!” -> media is so classy!
