Melo Over

Smooth suave savage yet debonair
Come in the party yeah I see you stop and stare

Good riddance. Later loser. He sucks anyway. No defense. Whiner. We’re better off without him.
Some comments from the masses as the Denver Nuggets traded arguably their best player of all time in return for players who will most likely also be dealt, draft picks, and (most importantly to the Nuggets office) cash.

We all understand that Melo didn’t want to be here and that the trade had to happen (as a contingent of Jazz fans recently broke out at a game: “Melo hates Denver!” I wondered, this dude has never said his feelings exactly why he wants to leave our fair city) and it is human nature to take a “don’t let the door hit you on the ass” attitude.

But aren’t we missing the most important thing: that we are all Nuggets fans. And with this trade the Nuggets are becoming a team that is not as good. In fact, before the trade deadline Thursday, this team will be even further down the Western Conference pecking order. A collection of young players, fill ins who are destined for a short career, and injured players with bad contracts (see: Harrington, Al and Anderson, Chris.)

While many are quick to send Melo a big Denver f-you, many have already forgot the late 90s and early 2000s. Seats were readily available at games, heavily discounted (the SG Crew had tickets in those days three rows off the court for less than the cost of a 12 pack), and the fan “interest” in the team was minimal. I went to a season ticket holder “meeting” once with team brass and the gathering fit at a couple tables around the bar.

We’re headed back to those days, the so-called third “Golden Age” (I won’t count the monumental upset of the 94 team as a “Golden Age”) of the franchise will seem like the team was routinely making trips deep in the playoffs with the basketball coming to The Can in coming years. (How quick we will all forget that of the seven playoff appearances, six were one round and done appearances and all of those were decidedly one-sided affairs)

Relish what we had the spanning the glorious Golden Age (Melo’s GW shot versus the Mavs in Game three of the 2009 playoffs being the apex) because we are headed for yet another Fools Gold age.

Chauncey is mad, forget about him coming back with any role on this team after retirement. Nice mustache Kroneke

I love Chauncey as much as anybody, but let's be honest here do we really care that he doesn't want to take an executive position that no one knows if he's qualified for or not.

The Nuggets are going to suck until we rebuild and you can't do that with his 14 mill per year.

I'm not happy that Melo decided he doesn't want to be here. and I know we aren't better off right now. But I'd like to think we have a shot at a rebuild that has been sore;y needed for 3 years.

He was smartest pure hoops dude in the organization after Karl. He won't even come back to the org to do the b*tch stuff that Mark Randall does.
