A Visual View Of The Carmelo Anthony Trade Rumors

There have been 3.2x10^5 Carmelo Anthony to the New Jersey Nets rumors since August. OK, there were actually only 67 trade rumors, but that still is a lot to keep up with. In case one wants a visual view of how this all played out, meander on over to Nets Are Scorching for a complete timeline of every rumor, false assumption, demand and everything in between.

That's some outstanding work. One of my favorite parts of this ever-widening trade spiral came on December 15 when The Denver Channel claimed to have information on an imminent trade between the Nuggets and the Nets, only needing to wait until 10:00 p.m to find out more. Oops, nothing new there.

The other was the end to this saga when the Nets' Russian owner, Mikhail Prokhorov called off the deal and talked about not thinking in the subjunctive mood.

Where will the next 67 dots lead us to? A trade with the Knicks, or even the Houston Rockets (which their fans want)? Or will the Nuggets hunker down, play out the season with Anthony and watch him leave for nothing once free agency starts? Oh, the winds of change. . . .
