At this point, we can all assume with complete confidence that come this Fall and the start of the 2011-2012 season, Carmelo Anthony will no longer be a Denver Nugget.

Whether his departure comes in the proposed three-team trade involving the New Jersey Nets and Detroit Pistons, through a free agency signing with the Knicks after this season, or in an unprecedented 12-player deal that gives the Miami Heat the greatest four-man basketball team the world has ever known, one thing's for certain: a new chapter in Melo's career is imminent.

Obviously, the loss of a marquee player like Carmelo Anthony is significant to a team, but I see no reason to fear a Cleveland Cavaliers-style implosion of the Denver Nuggets.

In all honesty, once the distraction of Anthony's impending announcement is firmly behind them, I believe the Nuggets will proceed barely deterred by the departure of their former franchise player.
