BYE BYE MELO
I have previously written about my low regard for the professional version of basketball. Generally speaking, that lack of respect carries over to the individual players as now epitomized by Carmelo Anthony. All season long, Melo and his equally self-enthralled WAG La La Vasquez have been pining for the Big Apple, playing ball at the center of the universe, blah, blah, blah. They finally got their wish with today's trade, and the only thing that makes me a bit sad is that Chauncey Billips was included in the deal. Apparently this was another demand of Megalo Melo. Chauncey is indeed the "hometown favorite." The first time that we saw him play was as an all-star high schooler from George Washington in Denver. The last time we saw him was courtside at the CU Coors Events Center, cheering on his alma mater is a win over Kansas State. Melo will not be missed, but Chauncey will.
