Earlier today, Andrew Sharp at SBNation posted an article that suggests Carmelo may already be considering joining up with Chris Paul and Amar’e Stoudemire in New York, forming a “Second Triumvirate” along with the Miami Heat’s new supergroup.â†µ
So is this a cause for concern? Are supergroups back in vogue? Personally, I see this as a friendly statement one gives at a good friend’s wedding, a show of support and brotherly love. Chris Paul was simply making a statement about unions, commitment, love and…basketball.â†µ

With only a 3-year extension on the table right now, who knows what happens in the next year if the Nuggets roster doesn’t improve to championship calilber like Carmelo has asked?
