ESPN – In the end, the biggest holdup in a trade that would send Carmelo Anthony to New Jersey may be Anthony himself. According to several league sources, Anthony has not told anyone, not even his representatives, that he will sign a contract extension with the Nets. One source who has spoken with Anthony since trade talks between Denver, New Jersey and Detroit”He has not agreed to go to New Jersey,” said the source, who speaks regularly with Anthony. “I have never heard him, in all the times we’ve talked, say he’s willing to go to New Jersey. Not once. Personally, I would be stunned if he went there and signed an extension.” became public last weekend said the Nuggets forward has never even hinted at signing with New Jersey.
Yesterday I wrote about how the Mets and Jets are typically the biggest loser teams in this city. But compared to the Nets those 2 groups of goobers are the biggest champions in the world. And now the Nets have this grand scheme of gutting their whole roster and mortgaging their whole future on teaming Carmelo with Chauncey Billups (who he already plays with), a 70-year old Rip Hamilton, Shelden Williams’ huge dome piece, and some wankster named Terrico White? And then move them all to Brooklyn and pretend they’re not the dumpass Nets anymore? And Carmelo doesn’t even want to do it? Sound plan Mikhail.
Seriously what kind of shoddy operation are Prokhorov and Jigga Man running over there in Newark that they think this is even close to reality? If Prokhorov was really such a badass he would’ve had the entire Nuggets front office executed by now and had Carmelo hand-delivered to him in a custom-made Cuse orange Faberge egg. But instead, these stupid rumors about 50 team, bazillion-player trades have been swiriling for weeks and the Nets just keep holding on to the dream. At this point its just fucking pathetic if you’re the Nets. I almost feel bad for them. They’re like some gross fat chick who spends all her time and money getting ready for the prom because she thinks the star QB is going to ask her out. But then prom night comes and she’s left slow dancing with fucking Feitelberg as the tears run down her fat sweaty face and she has no clue what went wrong. Sorry doll just because your dad is a billionaire Russian gangster and he promised to make you skinny in 2 years doesn’t mean you have a chance with the hottest kid in school.
So yo Nets I’m all about aiming for the stars and hitting the moon and shit, but you’re not even in the right galaxy on this one. Keep Derrick Favors and your 1st round picks, and stop trying to fuck up Carmelo’s path to the Knicks and the Knicks subsequent path back to the Promised Land.
