Carmelo Anthony trade drama continues to cast a spell over NBA fans and media.
The trade is on! No, it's not! Yes, it is! He's going to New Jersey! No, he's not! Now New York! Maybe Detroit's involved. Maybe Memphis. Maybe this, maybe that.
The whole affair certainly has given news outlets like this one plenty of headline fodder for weeks. But now, it seems, comes an entirely new piece of news. The word out of New Jersey is that the deal is dead. The Nets are walking away and will let the chips fall where they may.
What exactly happened? Is dead really dead? Where do things go from here? I'll try to answer those questions and more in the pages ahead.
