Carmelo Anthony on trade rumors: ‘I have no worries, man. Life is good.’
"I have no worries, man," Anthony said. "Life is good." Life without Melo could still very much be on the horizon for Denver.
Anthony put his Denver-area mansion on the market this year and at his celebrity-filled New York wedding to TV personality La La Vazquez this summer, there was that now famous toast by New Orleans point guard Chris Paul about reuniting with Anthony in New York to form a super team along with Amare Stoudemire to counter Miami’s trio of Dwayne Wade, James and Bosh.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He’s as cold as ice.
While the Denver Nuggets and their fans are concerned about losing Carmelo Anthony via trade or free agency, the superstar, himself, remains cool, calm, and collected.
In fact, Anthony has ‘no worries’. And why would he?
Despite never leading his team beyond the Western Conference Semi-Finals, Anthony holds considerable leverage over the Nuggets and potential suitors.
He’s perhaps the game’s best scorer. And he plays in an era when stars are treated like Greek gods, waited on hand-and-foot by teams and fans.
So Anthony has options: he can sign a max contract with the Nuggets or become a free agent in July, take a slight pay cut under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement and pick his next home.
For Anthony, it’s a win-win. No wonder he has ‘no worries’.
