This flew under the radar a bit in town, but the latest round of NBA cancellations means one thing for Nuggets fans looking to get a chance to personally voice their opinions to Carmelo Anthony this season: They won’t get that chance. Anthony and the New York Knicks were scheduled to visit Denver on Nov. 16. It would have been the first time he returned to Denver after being traded from the team in February, and there were a good number of fans that wanted an opportunity to “greet” him that night.

After last week's labor meetings blew up (again), fans sought out owners on Twitter and let them have it.  One of those owners is Micky Arison, who clearly doesn't want to be lumped in with guys who may be stalling the whole process.
