Denver Nuggets Schedule 2012: Carmelo Anthony Not Coming To Denver This Season, According To Report

The NBA schedule won't be officially released until Tuesday night, but according to Denver Nuggets beat writer Benjamin Hochman, Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks will not play a game in Denver this season:

Two league sources confirmed that the Nuggets-Knicks game this season will be in New York and not in Denver, where many fans would surely boo Anthony, the former Nugget who forced a trade out of town.

It appears Nuggets fans who were hoping to give Anthony a piece of their minds this season will have to wait for another opportunity.

Anthony was dealt to the New York Knicks in Feb. 2011; he averaged 26.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per game after the move to New York.
