This seems to be a trend on this list: Very good players that have been with a single team for their entire careers, possibly becoming content with their current situation.
Has comfort become the downfall of many NBA "goods?" Yes, at times it has.
But NBA fans and human beings can respect commitment and loyalty, giving players that dedicate their entire careers to a single city the benefit of a doubt and possibly helping them with the NBA Hall Of Fame voters.
This is what Carmelo Anthony is dealing with.
He is everything for the Denver Nuggets and even though they haven't been perennial Western Conference competitors, he has stuck with them.
But I still don't think that the Nuggets have the talent, right now, to make a push to the NBA finals.
With just one more year left on his contract, will he leave for greener pastures? I don't think so. And even if he does, where is he going to go? The Knicks?
Even if Carmelo, Stoudemire, and Chris Paul are on the Knicks, they would still be playing second fiddle to the Miami Heat.
Each player on the Knicks trio would be worse than another player on the Heat's. That is just the unfortunate reality of it.
So do I think that Carmelo will ever win an NBA championship? Not with the Denver Nuggets. And I think his chances are worse than you think with the Knicks.
