Jim Boeheim: Nuggets Were Wrong to Trade Marcus Camby


Jim Boeheim: Nuggets Were Wrong to Trade Marcus CambyWhether Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim’s view of the Nuggets’ offseason salary dump reflects Anthony’s view or is merely an attempt to watch Anthony’s back may be academic. Boeheim, clearly, is in a position to say things Anthony can’t without causing a public rift within the organization.

Boeheim and Anthony are in China as members of the U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team, Boeheim as an assistant to head coach Mike Krzyzewski.

"Without Camby, I don’t see any way that they can possibly win because he was a key guy for them," Boeheim told me the other day. "Believe me, I watched at least 70 games they played, maybe more. And he was a key guy."

Is Jim Boeheim right?  Are the Denver Nuggets making Carmelo Anthony’s job harder in Denver?  Does he even have a right to comment?
