Carmelo Anthony Denies Interest In New Jersey Nets

Maybe this is all moot since it seems the Denver Nuggets are not trading star forward Carmelo Anthony any time soon. It seems, though, that 'Melo took a little poke at the New Jersey Nets during an interview with the Denver Post.

Anthony, who has never gone public with his demands, was asked about his marketing prowess, and he said: "As far as marketing, it comes from winning. If I ain't winning, then nobody wants me to market their product."

So he was asked: "Then why would you want to play for the team that won 12 games last season?"

Anthony then said: "I never said I want to play for the Nets."

Ouch!
