It’s REALLY getting old, isn’t it. Melo continues to want to be traded but only to the exact team of his choice, The Knicks, who either don’t have the resources to do the trade or they don’t want to, knowing they can get Melo for free at seasons end. Frankly, I’m sick of the selfishness. Selfish enough to drag Chauncey Billups through this mess, hold the entire Nuggets franchise hostage, and still manage to spit on the fans in Colorado in the process. Months ago I wrote about the LeBron deal and how it would be the complete undoing of the NBA. Players will only want to play with their friends, in the city of their choice, on their own terms, which can, and usually does mean, the coach they want. It’s a far cry from the NBA of old. I was talking with my wife, Marcia, over the weekend. I told her how much I really can’t stand the NBA and how doing cartoons about the whole mess is not exactly the thing I live for. This is a good reason why.
