If you are an NBA star and you have to return to the arena of the team that you spurned to get to another team, it is pretty damn sweet that said return was put off by more than two years. It is really kind of crazy when you think about it that Melo has not returned to Denver to play against the Nuggets yet despite being traded over two years ago. This is JR Smith’s first game back in Denver, as well.
As many folks have noted, knowing how crazy this season has been, it will not be surprising at all if the Knicks kick the Nuggets’ ass. Sadly, said craziness means that it would not be surprising if the reverse occurs.
Whatever the results, I am pleased to finally be able to discuss the Melo trade here.
Let’s go Knicks!
