Carmelo Anthony stays in Denver. Sorry, Rip.
Amid today’s news that the New Jersey Nets are no longer pushing for a Carmelo Anthony deal, there is the story of Rip Hamilton. The former NBA champion from the 2004 Detroit team that upset the Lakers continues to languish away on the bench. He has been held out the last few games, a cautionary measure against injury, in case a three team Denver, New Jersey, Detroit deal could be reached.
I feel bad for him. Hopefully, he’ll get moved somewhere so he could start playing again.
