"I still live there," she said. "There’s so much speculation out there. We did (the) George Lopez (Show) two days ago, and Melo made it clear: He’s still a Denver Nugget. So no matter what you might hear or speculate, he is a Denver Nugget. He’s been committed to that team and that city for seven years now. You’ve got to cut him a little bit of slack. He hasn’t made a move yet.
"As of now, the plans are to report back to Denver for training camp. So let’s just see how this plays out."
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: La La Vasquez is right. Her husband’s situation with the Denver Nuggets has become comical.
For months, the press, fans, players, and GMs have speculated on where Carmelo Anthony will get traded. It’s a hot topic because the star forward can opt-out of his contract next July and become an unrestricted free agent.
The speculation is endless. One day, Anthony is getting dealt to the New York Knicks. The next day, the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, and/or New Jersey Nets are the frontrunners.
The Knicks and Nets do have two distinct advantages over the competition.
Vasquez, a former MTV host, hails from Brooklyn. Although unlikely to admit it, she’d prefer her husband ends up in the greater New York area, so she can continue her entertainment career and be near family.
This may be what pushes Anthony aways from Denver.
