Carmelo Anthony says he'd never leave the way LeBron James did
Carmelo Anthony is in the process of leaving the Denver Nuggets in a death-by-paper-cuts trade that may or may not take place before this century ends.
But he knows this much: While his situation may be "complicated," he won't leave Denver the way a certain big man left Cleveland.
"I would never go about it the way LeBron [James] did it," Anthony said in a Sports Illustrated interview. "If he could do it all over again, he wouldn't do it that way -- he would do it a totally different way, I can guarantee you that."
Anthony, drafted by the Nuggets in 2003, said he was surprised by reaction of Denver fans to a possible trade to a New York/New Jersey team.
"People throw away that whole 7 1/2 years, and that's what makes me laugh because I'm like, me? Out of all the people, you're booing me? Out of all the people."
