Good morning, New York/New Jersey sports fans! Is your head spinning from trying to keep up with the twists and turns of the Carmelo Anthony story? Mine is. Let's summarize.
First, we heard that Anthony would meet with New York Knicks owner James Dolan and New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov over the weekend in Los Angeles. Then, we began to hear that the Nets and Nuggets had a deal in place, if Anthony would sign an extension with New Jersey.
Then, we heard that Anthony did not know anything about a meeting with Prokhorov, and oh by the way, he had already met with Dolan and the Knicks Thursday night.
Finally, we heard that the Knicks had sweetened their trade offer for Anthony, pretty much giving in to what Denver wanted.
So, where are we now? After all of that, pretty much back where we started. The Nets and Knicks both desperately want the All-Star forward, and we have no idea which team he will ultimately wind up with.
