Carmelo Anthony is The Forgotten Man in Colorado. Or at least it seems that way to me. If you talk about No. 15 now, about 99 percent of Colorado residents are going to think you’re talking about Tim Tebow.
And when you talk about the trade, again our state’s residents are going to assume you’re talking about Tebow getting shipped to the New York Jets for the shameful price of a fourth-round pick. You might remember – or you might not – Carmelo got shipped to New York a year ago for half the Knicks roster.
Was it a good trade? Do you miss Carmelo? Does he still have a chance to become a true NBA superstar, a franchise player along the lines of Kobe and Dirk and a very few others?
Let me know. I’m writing a column on Carmelo that will soon appear on Gazette.com and will run in Sunday’s print edition of the Gazette.
Thanks for stopping by.
