The Carmelo Anthony saga has captivated NBA fans since LeBron James' decision to take his talents to South Beach this NBA Off Season, and that decision could have influenced Carmelo's no show from Nuggets Camp thus far. Carmelo saw the "Big Three" parading around the American Airlines Arena and wondered, "Is this the life for me?"
Carmelo undoubtedly can't resist the temptation to sign with the New York Knicks next NBA Off Season, and then wait till the summer of 2012 for New Orleans Hornets superstar Chris Paul to join him in the Big Apple. Carmelo wants to form his own "Big Three" as soon as possible, but does he have the patience to wait till the summer of 2012?
There are two likely other trade scenarios that Carmelo could conceivably join with the right advisers, and if they retain the necessary talent to compete immediately. The New Jersey Nets may have decided to back out of the Carmelo derby recently, but three other teams are still right in the middle of the pack. Without further ado, time to reveal the the most likely suitors for Carmelo, his new team, and where the Denver Nuggets fit in all this.
