Carmelo Anthony: Breaking Down Knicks Star's Performance in Return to Denver
Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

In February of 2011, the Denver Nuggets infamously traded star forward Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks. The most common perception was that Anthony forced his way out of town, which led to a controversial split between he and the loyal Denver fanbase.

For the first time since the trade transpired, Anthony made his return to Denver on Mar. 13.

More than two years removed from his controversial departure, Anthony entered this game with all eyes glued to what he would do. Coincidentally, this event came just one day after Dwight Howard returned to Orlando and dominated the game.

Well, 'Melo's trip back to Denver didn't go as planned.

The Nuggets blew the Knicks out of the building, going on a 17-0 run in the second quarter and never looking back. When it was all said and done, the Nuggets decimated 'Melo and the Knicks.

The Nuggets won by a score of 117-94. So how did it all go down?
