Carmelo Anthony: ‘I’m Not Chris Bosh’

If and when ‘Melo leaves the Mile High City, he promises not to leave the way a certain former Raptor did. From the NY Post: “The lines of communication already had been connected almost immediately after the exaggerated trade report surfaced. Ever since the ‘news’ hit the doorstep, Kroenke and Ujiri have sought out Anthony for opinions on team matters, just as he’s gone to them with suggestions. Both sides now know exactly what must be done. He wants to see the team improved within the next three months, or shown a plausible plan to get better this summer. He promises not to leave his team hanging. ‘I’m not Chris Bosh,’ Anthony declared. ‘We’re not the same person. What I do will be straight up. Management knows that.’ Considering Anthony’s tentative Nuggets future, management has an almost impossible assignment. How do you get better when you’ve got to give up an asset to get one? How do you buy a wheel for a car that might soon be repossessed? How do you do balance business and justice when Martin and J.R. Smith are rising free agents and Chauncey Billups can be bought out of next season’s $14.2 million obligation for $3.75 million? The key is not to make hasty decisions. The idea is to see how things play out in the standings over x-amount of games so fantasy can be separated from reality. The hope is to get Martin and Andersen back on the court. If Karl, who’s back holding players accountable, and the two brutes were at the top of their defensive game, would Anthony be tempted to leave?”

    damn E that worked perfect like Payton to Kemp

  • slamfan4life

    lmfao @ Melo

  • neaorin

    He also said “I’m just like LeBron”… so he is gone. Denver better trade him soon or risk losing him for nothing.

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    *shots fired*

  • Groves

    Well Now if Melo joins the magic, there could be a nice little rivalry forming

  • http://twitter.com/HarryByrdMan44 LA Huey

    I love how everyone’s taking shots and talking ish this year.

  • kundai

  • James Johnson JR

    #Team LAKERS
    Should trade Luke Walton, Sasha, & draft picks for Carmello

  • EtheKnickfan

    I thought the phrase was ” I am not an animal”

  • MUBWAR

    Woow everyone is taking shots at Bosh this year. Is Because his averages are the lowest of his career or is it because Bosh is too quit and almost never replies to anyone(oops i was speaking about the dreadlocks raptors Bosh).

  • http://nicekicks.com meloman2.0

    Hahaha my favorite player taking shots at my most recent enemy… gotta love it

  • Flight

    Legit. Respect gone up for Melo right here. Calling out the Rupaul of big men.

  • http://slamonline.com JL

    cuz bosh is a bigger fake than everyone. he kept saying he is not a complimentary piece. look at him now. he is playing like a role player. nice use of 11 mil a year!

  • clib

    Bosh also wanted a legit center to play with him

  • burnt_chicken

    remember when carmelo was punching knicks in the back of the head? Correlate to this. He’s an efficient hunter, only picking on the weak and the sick of the herd. Uhhh when they’re not looking. Assassin! Cold blooded!

  • http://Mrjones21901@aol.com Run’n'Gun219

    this chris bosh hate is crazy!! u guys are like little girls who just stated there cycle.im not even a fan of his but the boy has go, he can ball. i wanna see a pf dominate a game with lebron and dwade on his team dominating the ball. i love how he is changing his game(which has made him a 5 time allstar) to what the team need. He is trying to find his nitch. Yall need to get the hate out yall blood. and really pleas name me a pf who would?

  • Jagster

    It seems to me Carmelo is taking the punk move, by asking Denver to do something he know they can’t do. Then he’ll leave and claim he has no regrets, cause he asked them to make a move in 3 mos. WTF?

  • Alan

    Why did he have to use JUST Bosh as an example? Didn’t LeBron do the exact same sh*t to Cleveland…maybe worse? Also, wasn’t it just a few weeks ago we all heard him say that he “wants a change of scenary”? Now all of a sudden, he backpeddles and says he “wants the team improved”. Come on Melo, show some consistency before opening your mouth.

  • flipnoyce

    Damn right Melo you tell them! That there is a big difference between you and Bosh. While you’re at it ask for a center like Dwight and your team will be complete. You do all the scoring while Dwight defend and man the block.

  • Elvis Freshly

    Leave Bosh alone!.. just leave em alone![/chriscrocker]

  • http://slamonline.com Bryan Crawford

    I’m sure he meant to say, “I’m not LeBron James.”

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Well LeBron actually was pretty straight forward, he wanted the best chance to win a title, Cleveland didn’t offer that, so he left. Bosh didn’t say anything close to even hinting at what he really wanted. If ya’ll don’t remember at one point last year bosh said he didn’t want to team up because he believed he could be “the man” on a championship team.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    I think what he really meant to say is “Lebron and D-Wade didn’t want me, so I have a vendetta against the other dude cause I have to take on Bron twice this season and I don’t want to be humiliated in a one on one situation time after time by talking sh*t about him.”

  • http://slamonline.com yaos foot

    chris bosh SUCKS. should have signed amare or booz at least they are tough

  • http://google J-Ro

    @ Eboy: actually, Carmelo fares pretty well when facing Lebron.

  • Elvis Freshly

    @Eboy I recall melo splashing a game winning jumper in Brons face, then Bron missing, storming off the court and almost crying.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    Sure he does.

  • Blackphantom

    @Eboy when it comes to playing against LBJ, Melo is usually extremely competitive and it’s fun to watch

  • http://sports.espn.go.com/oly/olybb/news/story?id=5493184 ENDSwing

    acknowledge the ally-oop hotWhitE

  • http://Mrjones21901@aol.com Run’n'Gun219

    YAOS FOOTdo really think amare and boozer are better than bosh. Amare plays no d and grabs 7 rebounds a night for his career. and boozer all tho i like him hasnt played a full season since he was at duke. so you my friend is a hater. point blank

  • Harlem_World

    Damn, Bosh is getting it from all sides nowadays. I guess that’s what you get trying to write cheque with your mouth your game can’t cash. He needs to give Haslem half his cheque.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    We know hes not bosh cuz he just got 22 boards. And emiddleagedman, melo has done great against bron, he dropped 41 on him and put a game winner on that megafohead

  • Michael

    Yeah Melo and LBJ is always a competitive match up, you gotta come correct E.

  • http://nicekicks.com Meloman2.0

    Ahahha i love it.. Eboy shut down… honestly eboy, i know u ride with ur Heat through thick and thin… but you have to admit, u have a legit B*tch on your team

  • MUBWAR

    So much hate towards EBOY. Don’t pay attention to these fools, they know the Heat will be in the ECF or the Finals every year for Lord knows how long. Once the first ring comes, evrything will go back in place…

  • Se7enMc

    Be real Eboy…look at the head to head matchups between LeBron and Melo. Melo been whippin Lebron ass since high school.

  • http://slamonline.com mason eberle

    melo should leave or the nuggets need 2 trade him

  • http://slamonline.com JJAkroyd

    I think what Eboy meant is if Melo went and called out LeBron on this, it would give him an extra motive to go out and whip him personally. I don’t think James has really though that way his whole career, see total wins verse Melo, where as Melo takes pride in beating his man one on one. However, when LeBron get’s fired up (see Toronto game when Bosh’s gf started talking trash), he just gets pissed and takes over. So yeah, if you actually read EXACTLY what Eboy said, he makes perfect sense. But of course, as NBA basketball fans we don’t read properly. Unfortunately it seems some of our reporters (not involved with SLAM) are following suit.

  • Exile

    Bosh doesn’t deserve hate from Raptor fans… Heat fans, on the other hand… have not seen Bosh play like he can, so I can understand the frustration. Melo though…. where does Melo fit in all this?

  • http://blogs.thescore.com/tbj/author/hollymackenzie/ Ghost

    I almost dropped my coffee all over my keyboard when I read the headline and realized that Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh are not the same person.

  • Justin

    There are a lot of people around here who don’t know a lot about basketball and it’s rather surprising. Somebody please tell me how you’re supposed to go from a team where the offense is centred around getting you the ball, you are always the first option to a team where you are the third option and you’re playing with two bona fide superstars that control the ball? Anyone? Didn’t think so. The only real disappointment comes from his rebounding stats.

  • http://www.google.com Larsylad

    @Ghost. I find it obvious that this whole piece is bogus.

  • Lakers Fan

    amare over bosh anyday

  • Galagu

    lmao @burnt-chicken’s comment, 4real i forgot about that

  • http://nbacheapseats.blogspot.com Chendaddy

    Who’s better off right now, the Raptors or the Cavs? So why didn’t Melo say, “I’m not like LeBron?” Answer: he doesn’t have the cajones to go after that fish.
