The Denver Nuggets are now willing to listen to offers for Carmelo Anthony and there seems to be a few teams highly interested, including the New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets and Chicago Bulls. There are two scenarios that I see working well for both Anthony and the team that is able to obtain him. It would be great for him to move to either New York or Chicago.
New York is where Carmelo wants to be and it may end up being a great choice, depending on how things work out. There has been all those rumors of Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul teaming up with Amar’e Stoudemire and creating another big three in New York. This would be an awesome scenario and could lead to a great rivalry between New York, Miami, Chicago and the Lakers. Honestly, no matter how much people hate LeBron’s move to Miami, that team will most likely win 2-4 championships. Just think about how much more exciting the NBA would be if we had a Knicks-Heat rivalry to look forward to. I have never been a huge Amar’e fan but he is a above average big man and well Chris Paul is one of the best point guards in the league and Carmelo can flat out score. That would be an incredible combination.
Chicago would be the other great fit for Carmelo, although not as appealing as a big three in New York. I have always said that I believe Chicago is where LeBron should of taken his talents to and well, why not Carmelo seeing LeBron did not end up there. It would be a team of Rose, Carmelo and Boozer, and maybe Deng depending on who is traded for Carmelo. This is another great lineup, and one that definitely could compete with the Heat and Lakers. The biggest downside to this scenario would be that the Bulls would most likely have to give up Joakim Noah, a great, young defensive center. This could be a big loss for Chicago and although the team will still be great, just like the Heat, it may have issues at the center position.
My wishlist: Carmelo and CP3 to New York Knicks.
This is just an opinion, so please…Pardon My Bias.
