First Round Knockout

DENVER, COLORADO - The NBA's most lethal scoring duo certainly didn't dissappoint during their first game together last night in Denver. The Nuggets stomped the hapless Grizzlies 115-98, and to the dismay of fans who love controversy, Carmelo didn't give us an encore to his hit and run performance against the Knicks which earned him a stiff 15 game suspension. Rumors are floating around that during his time off, Anthony spent some time teaching Kevin Garnett how to not be manly in on-court scuffles (and Garnett certainly mastered the skill). Iverson went for 23 points and 7 assists, while Anthony had a game high 28 points and another 6 assists. Veteran center Marcus Camby has been playing very well as of late, and added 17 pts. and 17 rebounts to the winning effort. Denver is currently in 7th place in the West, although their 8-11 conference record is the worst among playoff teams in the conference. The baby blue bombers have also lost more games at home than any other playoff team out West (10). Despite the tremendous potential of this team with both of their superstars in the lineup, lets not annoint the Nuggets as potential threats to win the West just yet; we'll see what happens when they lose a few games in a row and these two superstars aren't able to throw up undefended alley oops to one another to the delight of their home crowd (No offense to the And 1 mixtape tour, where throwing up undefended alley oops has mesmerized fans to the extent that the likes of "Spyda" and "Half-Man, Half-Amazing are off the streets).

Are you SERIOUS???? Give Carmelo Kiyan Anthony a little more credit. He landed the cleanest NBA punch since Kermit Washington. He put down Mardy Collins faster than a mid-eighties Tyson would. Melo backed off because 1. Collins was on his ass on the floor and 2. He was being pulled back by his teamates. He kept his head on a swivel, and that's what you gotta do when you find yourself in a vicious cock fight.

You know what I want to see at a Cleveland sports blog? A story about the Nuggets. Good work.
