Reader: Nuggets got something in trade for Carmelo Anthony, but not Dikembe Mutombo

Last week's list of the top ten Colorado sports stars who pissed us off by leaving, either by their choice or ownership's, covered a lot of bases, as well as football and basketball sidelines and hockey benches. But one reader makes a compelling argument for us having missed a loss that stung worse because the team received squat in return.

WTF? writes:

Losing Dikembe Mutombo for nothing made me the maddest. Makes me wonder what a list of the top 10 most destructive team coaches/managers/execs would look like. I'd have Bernie Bikerstaff at the top of that list.

I also hated losing Mike Ricci, but not nearly as much as Dikembe.
