Well, Carmelo didn't really need to run away.  Collins was down.  A second shot, if Collins got up, would have been TKO for sure.

I really think Anthony is going to get more like 8-15 games

Good call, Matt.  15 games it is:

Suspensions total 47 games from Knicks-Nuggets fight

Sounds like AI is heading to Denver.  Goddamn it sucks to be a Minnesota sports fan...why do I keep doing it?

Since we didn't land AI, does that mean that trading KG by the end of the season is all but guaranteed then?

It should be interesting to see how well Melo, Iverson, and JR Smith get along. We've got three guys who are all going to want to score 40+ a game, and we just lost our best passing player. It should be fun to watch though. :)

Geez, well, the Nuggets definitely aren't going to have a problem scoring points.  With Anthony/Iverson, I think just a few other teams have a scoring tandem in the same ballpark: (assuming health) Yao/McGrady, Allen/Lewis, and Marion/Nash/Amare.  Nowitzki/Howard could be in that category by year's end with the leaps and bounds Josh Howard has been making this year.  Even with Anthony sitting for 15 games, I think the Nuggets will get a 7th seed or so in the conference and make the playoffs and go a coupla rounds.

For the record, I'm picking Phoenix to win it all this year.  This is the year for the Suns.

Nice.

It will take some adjustments, but they should be alright.  Remember, Denver runs and guns even more than Phoenix does (they're just not as good at it).  With the fast tempo, AI and Melo both should still get all the shots they want. 
I wouldn't want to play that team.  They have two players that legitimately should be double-teamed on almost every play, and they now have two clutch players for the end of close games.  They'll be a tough out in the Playoffs, if they mesh together.

IF...I'm more wary about this move. I could see Melo getting a little upset that he was no longer the goldenrod after he comes back after 15 games too. It could end up like another Marbury/Francis marriage..we'll see. I would say though if it does work out well then I'd put them higher than a 7 seed.

It definitely could, but I don't think it will be quite as bad.  First of all, both AI and Melo are better players than either Marbury or Francis.  Second, they don't play the same position, like Marbury and Francis do.  Though Melo is a good jump-shooter, he thrives when he's in the post.  He's bigger and stronger than guards, and he's way too quick for most forwards to cover him.  They could get a great inside-outside game going between the two of them.

I agree with that if they don't fight about who leads the team in point total every night. If that were the case I would expect it from the younger "Melo" and not AI. Well I guess we'll see what it's like/ get a good picture of it by marchish.

I think that guy in the second row fouled him too.  Damn.
