New York Knicks
Well, who wouldve guessed? The Denver Nuggets are just as relevant as they ever were with Carmelo Anthony.
Thats not meant to trash Anthony, but remember when everyone thought the Nuggets were headed for a decade-long rebuilding period when Anthony was traded to New York two seasons ago? Remember when the Nuggets lineup consisted of Anthony and Allen Iverson and everyone figured they were Finals-bound?
Now the Nuggets main names include Danilo Gallinari, Andre Iguodala and Kenneth Faried. Doesnt have quite the sizzle of Melo and (the origina) AI, but as weve seen, pizzazz doesnt always mean success.
Truth is, these Nuggets should be able to run and gun and have just as much fun as any team Denver has seen in some time.
Besides Gallinari, Iggy and Faried, the lineup features speedy point guard Ty Lawson, kind of a one-man Disneyland with the ball. He scoops, he scores, he tosses the occasional alley-oop. When he does, athletic center JaVale McGee is often the man on the finishing...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Nuggets have waived Anthony Carter and Ben Uzoh.
After signing a 4 year, $44 million extension this offseason, the Denver Nuggets are looking for big things from JaVale McGee. The team doesn’t like to spend big time money on long-term extensions, as shown through the dealing of Carmelo Anthony to New York a few years ago. This is what makes the signing so interesting. The Nuggets really think McGee is worth $44 million? Nonetheless...
Lala Anthony isn’t the only one in the family with a brand association with Market America. Carmelo Anthony has his Isotonix for Champion Blend – a supplement designed to give your body the maximum benefit from vitamins and minerals. Melo hosted a launch event in New York aboard a yacht and of course his wife Lala [...]
Since being inked to his $44 million contract, JaVale McGee has been unable to rip Denver’s starting center spot from the clutches of Kosta Koufos, who was signed for $9 million this summer. Disappointing? Well, yeah, I guess… but watch how he catches halfcourt alley-oops from Andre Miller and dunks them over Blake Griffin! (:19)
See, I think Masai Ujiri knew exactly what...

Ten years ago, can you believe it? The ’02-’03 season ended with Syracuse cutting down the nets in New Orleans, site of so much horror for the program before that. The kid that erased all those ghosts was back in the Dome this week.
The critics can howl all they want about Carmelo Anthony. You’ve heard it all before: He doesn’t make his teammates better. He doesn’t play...
Earlier this offseason, Carmelo Anthony made a vow that he was tired of scoring 30 or 40 points on a nightly basis, and now had more of a focus on doing whatever it took to win games. If that took defending and rebounding, and only taking 12 shots, he would do it.
This is admirable for anyone who knows Melo’s game. He shoots a lot, but a lot of the time, he is very good at it...
Since the Knicks signed Amare Stoudemire in 2010, and acquired Carmelo Anthony in 2011, Knicks fans have come out of the woodwork and brought passion back to the Garden. This off-season, they continued to build around their superstars and added veteran toughness and leadership in Jason Kidd, Kurt Thomas, Rasheed Wallace, and Marcus Camby. Yes, these guys make the Knicks one of the...
