I'll probably blog about this more as the season begins in the NBA. But, I"m going to make a prediction:
Carmelo is playing in Denver this year. He may opt out after the season, or he may get traded in February at the deadline, if he won't commit to the team.
But, he's not getting traded before the season starts. Most of this has been hype. The only thing we know for sure is that Carmelo doesn't want to be in Denver for 3 more years. He's happy to play this year out. And, with the collective bargaining agreement expiring. . who knows how much he will be able to get paid next year. . . or if there will even be a "next year" for the NBA.
So, he's playing in Denver this year. . buckle up.
(if Carmelo is traded in the next few days. . this post never happened, and I knew it all along)
