Rumor: Timberwolves to make ‘serious run’ at Carmelo Anthony?

If Carmelo Anthony is still with the Denver Nuggets at trade time in February, look for the Timberwolves to make a serious run at him.
 
 
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Not happening.

Under no circumstances will Carmelo Anthony suit up, play for or sign an extension with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

So the T-Wolves can try all they like to facilitate a trade, but ‘Melo will never, ever call the Frozen Tundra of Sota home.    

Here’s why:

1) Anthony wants to win. Like now. Minnesota –even if Ricky Rubio crosses the Atlantic and Kevin Love continues developing –are years away from contending for a playoff spot.

2) While Minnesota is a nice place with good people, players see it as a foreign outpost with cold weather. Anthony and wife LaLa Vasquez want a sexy, major market, not the league’s Siberia.

3) Call it The Kevin Garnett Effect. For years, Garnett toiled admirably and the Wolves lost, only once making the Western Conference Finals. Anthony doesn’t want to waste his prime seasons –like The Big Ticket.

Minnesota reporters need to stop dreaming and deal with reality -Anthony will never play for the lowly Wolves.
