Nuggets-Bulls Preview

With Carmelo Anthony and his Denver Nuggets coming to town, this could be one of those classic “look what you (supposedly) could’ve had” games. There was a lot of buzz about whether the Bulls should (or, rather, could) trade for Anthony during the offseason. ‘Melo apparently wanted out of Denver…although you wonder whether he still […]

‘Melo rumors swirling again

It appears the New York Knicks are still working — and working hard — on prying Carmelo Anthony away from the Denver Nuggets. According to ESPN’s Chris Sheridan (citing an unnamed source): “The Knicks got back in on the bidding about two weeks ago after Anthony made it known to the Nuggets that he would not […]

Forget ‘Melo…

…the Bulls have inked Brian Scalabrine to a non-guaranteed deal, making any potential trade for Anthony redundant. I mean, there’s only so much shooting and scoring a team needs, right? It’s just as well. The Denver Nuggets were willing to trade Carmelo to the Bulls, but only if Joakim Noah was included in the deal. […]

Gold medalist D-Rose on the ‘Melo rumors

From FanHouse: “Right now, I think that we have our team (in order for the season),” Rose said. “If it was something like (a trade for Anthony), I would have heard it (was close) or somebody would have called me. Nobody has called me yet. He’s still in Denver. He hasn’t said he wants to […]

According to Mark J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports: “Carmelo Anthony(notes) still hopes to persuade the Denver Nuggets to trade him, preferably to either the Chicago Bulls or New York Knicks, an NBA source with knowledge of Anthony’s wishes told Yahoo! Sports. The Knicks have limited assets to offer the Nuggets, which makes the Bulls a […]

Forget about Carmelo Anthony…

As you probably already know, Carmelo Anthony is available…insomuch as he has yet to sign a contract extension with the Nuggets and reportedly wants out of Denver. Since this news broke, ESPN’s Trade Machine has been getting worked so hard it just applied for the witness protection program. Naturally, one of the hot rumors is a potential ‘Melo-to-Chicago […]

Circus Trip Game 3: Nuggets 112, Bulls 93

I started worrying about this game the night before it even happened. Not because the Bulls were facing a good team on the road, or because they had played so poorly in Los Angeles against the Lakers, or even because of their ugly history of losing on their annual circus trip. No, I got nervous after […]

Upon further review: Nuggets 90, Bulls 89

Well, you can go ahead and file this one under “Almosts,” “Heart-Breakers,” or “What-Ifs.” Take your pick. Last night’s loss to the Denver Nuggets might very well qualify as one of the closest one-point defeats in NBA history. With the score knotted at 89-all, Kirk Hinrich fouled Chauncey Billups as the Nuggets guard was driving […]

Outnumbered? Yes. Outdone? No.

I’m not sure I would have expected a win against the Nuggets even if Brad Miller and John Salmons had been able to play. (The Kings hadn’t finalized their physicals for Andres Nocioni, Drew Gooden, Cedric Simmons and Michael Ruffin, so Miller and Salmons were ineligible for game action.) As it was, the Bulls dressed only […]
