CSG #101: Who should Nuggets fear in post-season?

Special guest Colin Neilson from Denver Stiffs joins us for a very Nuggets and headline driven conversation. We talk potential playoff matchups for George Karl's squad, Evan Fournier's play and we weigh in on JaVale McGee's development.

  1. It's so obnoxious and diva-like the way fans like Colin hate on Carmelo Anthony for seeking a trade from Denver. There's an awful sense of entitlement in thinking that a lottery player drafted purely for his skill set, a man with no relationship to the city, is obliged to lifelong loyalty to that team just because the fans rooted for him (as if they wouldn't) and because he's the best player on the team, and the team ain't bad. Athletes steer their futures toward whats best for them and their families, changing teams the same way workers change companies for money and happiness, and why would you begrudge that? Melo gave Denver one extension, played his ass off, and then went home to the East Coast where he knew the owner would throw more money at team salary and where he had family, a potential career boost for his wife. I'm a lifelong Nuggets fans, and I don't blame him at all. I would have done the same thing the same way. On the issue of how he did it: Sure it was awkward. But lets not be so sensitive. This a business, and instead of taking the coward's route -- a la LeBron -- he warned management, a gesture of loyalty in a sense, Denver's return was perhaps the best a team has ever received for trading a superstar. Cheers, Melo.
