CP3 is looking for a new address and his No. 1 choice is New York, where he wants Denver’s very own Carmelo Anthony to join him there. And of course since Chris Paul has come out and said he wants out of New Orleans, Denver Nuggets fans want the Nugs to make a play for Paul – especially if it means Anthony will stay in Denver.
However, would Paul really make Anthony stay? Especially considering that Melo is already playing with a veteran point guard like Chauncey Billups, who is a proven winner and is best leader in the game. The Nuggets also have a proven winner in Ty Lawson as a backup point guard. So, unless Anthony just wants to play with Paul it wouldn’t make much sense to trade for the Hornets star – especially since it would be a step sideways.
The Nuggets problem is certainly not their point guards, their problem starts with the bigs and a 6-foot point guard isn’t going to help with that.
Billups isn’t taken a break this offseason either, he has taken his leadership and winning ways to Team USA and his teammates are taking notice.
