In the midst of a slew of reports that at the very least suggest, and at the most definitively say, Nuggets superstar Carmelo Anthony is as good as gone, new executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri says the team still wants the high-scoring forward.

"I love Melo," Ujiri said. "I grew up in this league with Melo, kind of. It was my first years in the league, and I watched him grow. The Denver Nuggets want to keep Melo, and that's our priority. Carmelo is the Denver Nuggets, he's the city of Denver. He's done so well on this team. So we're going to deal with the issue full force."

It'd be great to, just once, have an exec say "He wants to leave. **** 'em."

Quit copy/pasting the same crap. lala doesn't wanna hit off her career in a hillybilly Texas town. That's why they'r looking at NY NJ area. This "decision" has got to do a lot more than basketball. Get over it!
