There has been plenty of talk surrounding Carmelo Anthony this season and where he will take his talents this summer when he becomes a free agent.
It all began when he refused to sign the $65 million extension Denver offered last summer opening up the opportunity that he may bolt the Mile High City.
Anthony has kept quiet about where he would like to play and has left his options open. That has led to plenty of speculation.
Where will Carmelo Anthony play next season? Will he duplicate LeBron James and team up with another superstar in a quest to win an NBA title?
I have composed a list of 10 teams Anthony could potentially play for as a free agent.
If Otis Smith is serious about keeping Dwight Howard in Orlando, then he better bring in someone to play along side Superman.
The Magic are one player away from contending again for a championship, and Carmelo could be just the player to take them over the top.
The Bulls have made it clear they are not willing to part with Joakim Noah in a trade for Anthony, but with Carlos Boozer playing like an All-Star, a trio of Rose, Anthony and Boozer are enough to challenge the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference.
Chris Paul made a toast at Anthony's wedding this summer, dreaming to form a big three in New York, but what about joining Paul in New Orleans?
When Tyson Chandler left for Dallas, he also left a void in the Hornets' front court. Anthony could fill that void.
Can you imagine Blake Griffin and Carmelo Anthony together?
Along with Eric Gordon, they would have the nucleus needed to make a run in the West.
It is obvious Kobe Bryant needs help in LA, and the Lakers could definitely use some fresh faces.
Kobe needs teammates who are not afraid to demand the ball and those he can count on in the fourth quarter to help him with the scoring load.
Before Kobe retires, he could win a couple more rings, and Carmelo could get his first.
The Warriors are not happy with their present team.
What may be needed is another front court scorer to help ease the burden on Monta Ellis. Golden State has the scoring and rebounding, but they lack another fourth quarter guy to make them a legitimate threat.
Let's face it, the Pistons are sinking faster than the Titanic.
They made two mistakes: failing to draft Carmelo out of college and trading Chauncey Billups.
Anthony could resurrect the Motor City, and maybe Billups would be okay going back to Detroit if he knew he could win a ring with him.
Carmelo Anthony says he doesn't want to handle his free agency in the manner LeBron did, but he is handling it the same way, if not worse.
The city of Cleveland has suffered a tremendous loss. What better way to resurrect their franchise than with Anthony?
Maybe Carmelo can do what LeBron didn't—win a championship. He took Syracuse on his back all the way to an NCAA championship, so maybe he and Dan Gilbert's 5-year plan can make it happen.
They say, if you can't beat them—join them.
LeBron James and Dwayne Wade, along with Chris Bosh have started a trend in the NBA and it's not going away.
Carmelo Anthony wants to win a championship, so he can either team up with other superstars or join the three that started the trend—in Miami.
The Nets' Russian billionaire may have backed out on the deal that would have brought Carmelo to Brooklyn, but there is always the possibility 'Melo would agree to sign there as a free agent anyway.
With that scenario, the Nets would still have Derrick Favors, Anthony Morrow and Devin Harris, and with Brook Lopez still in the middle, a better opportunity to win.
