Carmelo has that Rockie Mountain high

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Carmelo Anthony is in Denver right on the edge of the Rockies celebrating his stay with the Nuggets. Carmelo won’t be a part of that celebrated free agent class next year and that is just fine with him.

There aren’t going to be a lot of happy people out there,” Anthony said. “It’s going to be a zoo. … There are too many people.”

Three years ago, James, Wade and Bosh all signed three-year contract extensions with an option for a fourth year, making them eligible to become free agents in 2010. The move gives them a chance to make more money by becoming free agents sooner. More importantly, it also gives them the power to leverage their teams into keeping a talented supporting cast around them – and the flexibility to leave if their teams don’t.

Carmelo Anthony took the advice of his Mom and signed a 4 year deal with a 5th year option totaling 80 million bucks and putting off free agency until 2012. Even that may not be necessary, because Carmelo likes where he is at and he likes the team he plays for right now.

Carmelo has that Rocky Mountain High!

The addition of Chauncey Billups, who came to the Nuggets by trading Allen Iverson to the Pistons, has bolstered a strong lineup and given them solid direction. Carmelo laments that they are the Rodney Dangerfield of the National Basketball Association and feels the talent is there to beat the Lakers and move on to the NBA finals.

What he does not lament if being a member of next year’s free agent class. Carmelo Anthony wants to remain a Nugget for life.

As always, any NBA Basketball related comments are welcome.

LeBron to the Nets, to Russia with love

LeBron to the Nets, to Russia with love

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.
In case you have been living in a cave all week, the richest man in Russia just dumped 700 million dollars into the New Jersey Nets. His name is Mikhail Prokhorov and he stands at the same eye level as LeBron James only he is much much richer.
For those of you that root for LeBron to stay in Cleveland, it is time to wake up and smell the money. This guy likes to party and thinks nothing of jetting all over the world to have a …read more


Top 10 GMs – Who is better than Joe Dumars

Top 10 GMs – Who is better than Joe Dumars

The answer to “Who is better than Joe Dumars?”, is in my opinion, nobody. But then some would say that nobody is me and that would make me better than Joe, which is not true, so Joe Dumars is the best. Ok, just messing with you, but the The Ball don’t Lie has a great article on the 10 best GMs in the last decade.
They did not pick Joe Dumars as number 1.
So lets step through some of the highlights.
How about Pat Riley at number 8. He built a team in his image, always ready, always tough. …read more

Pistons will have fire power

Pistons will have fire power

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.
Just listen to Tayshaun Prince tell it like it is concerning the next season for the Detroit Pistons. He claims they will have plenty of firepower from the top to the bottom of the lineup.
On how the new pieces will fit: “As a coach, the more firepower you have, they say the more problems you have. But I’m pretty sure he’ll love that problem. … With Ben (Gordon), his ability to score the ball at will, almost, will be helpful to us. And Charlie (Villanueva), being able …read more

The Russians are coming

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.
The Russians are coming. The Russians are coming.
The Chinese are already here with a minority stake in the Cleveland franchise. Now the Russians are on the way to rescue the New York Nets. Is this what is has come to in order to survive?
Maybe it is time to take a more worldly view and realize that the David Stern vision of worldwide basketball would eventually lead to this type of foreign ownership.
Maybe next we will have a world NBA Championship with the USA Champion entering …read more

Stephen Curry has the confidence

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.
Stephen Curry was open about playing for the New York Knicks and he wanted them to draft him on draft day, but that did not happen and maybe the second best thing did happen when he was drafted by the Golden State Warriors.
Stephen is the son of Dell Curry and those are pretty good basketball genes. His father was known for his ability to come into a game as a sixth man and immediately put up some points and often the points came in the form of …read more

Knicks are a sad franchise

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.
You have to go back to my youth to understand my feelings here. Back in the day and this was long ago before Magic and before Bird, but after the prime of Russell. In those days of pre-cable and no VCR, let alone a dvr, the games on TV were very limited. Mostly you watched Boston and rooted against them, unless you lived in Boston or you watched New York and rooted for them, especially when they played Boston. Keep in mind this was …read more

Delonte West in trouble with guns

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.
It is 10 o’clock at night and Delonte West is speeding down the Interstate near his home in the off season near Brandywine, Maryland. Nothing unusual about that. Delonte is riding his 3 wheel 2009 Can-am Motorcycle. If not for one other little detail, it would be business as usual.
Delonte West is carrying a 9mm Beretta in his waistband, a .357 Ruger is strapped to his leg, and a shotgun is stored in a guitar case slung over his shoulder. In essence, he is …read more

Golden State.
Oh yeah, that is a mouthful. Think of all the recent titles Golden State has achieved. Uh, think of any titles…how about Conference titles? No? Uh, think of all the good parking places in their parking lot. You can park your car right beside the stadium.
How about all the tremendous players on their roster. Let’s see, there is…um, there is… Don’t they have Baron Davis? He left? Chose to go to the Clippers? He chose to go …read more

Iverson according to Karl

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.
Believe it or not, George Karl the Nuggets coach is a big fan of Allen Iverson and thinks that Allen will thrive in Memphis if he is prepared to move to a new part in his career. George Karl refers to this as being a mentor to the younger guys and a bench player. Memphis has a number of younger guys like O.J. Mayo and could use a strong mentor, but Allen Iverson? That is going to be tough.
“Now that he’s getting in whatever you …read more
