Our item yesterday about a potential trade that would send Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups to the New Jersey Nets prompted a strong take from a reader known as "lala."
No, it's probably not that LaLa, judging by what she had to say about Melo.
Here's the post:
first off: don't trade chauncey! he's our franchise player, born and raised in denver! i was pissed when they traded him before. then we got him back. now let the dude stay home. second: f*CK MELLO! get that sucka out of here. I'd trade that pile for a sack of the chronic. i'm so sick of hearing about this whiny punk. he obviously doesn't have what it takes to get the nuggs to the next level. church!
