Default Will the Denver Nuggets retire Carmelo's jersey number?

I think they will. He was their best scorer since Prime Alex English and Prime Kiki Vandeweghe.






He and Chauncey led that team in the conference finals.

People can laugh, but when you look at the players jerseys the Nuggets have retired, there's no reason why they wouldn't retire Carmelo's

Theres more to the story than point totals

Did those players have coaches come out and basically SAY they were cancers and net negatives?

Did those players leave Denver SIMPLY because they wanted to play in a bigger city. Cause that was lterally why Carmelo left Denver in his prime. He thought it would be more fun to play in NY.


Why TF would Denver retire his jersey? He was a loser the whole time he was there. They made one conference finals with a really deep team and some veteran leaders.

Retiring Carmelo Anthony’s jersey would be an embarassment.

In todays era of sports, every Star gets hated.. So all the hate on Melo is normal.
But the love he is receiving until now, and all the love he got when he was at Nuggets says it all.
Dude will be HOF. I don't see why Nuggets won't retire his Jersey say 10-12 years from now.
Yes he's a ballhog, a chucker. But thats part of being a scorer. He's one of the best isolation scorer of all time.

This. They retired Mutombo's jersey when they had ONE winning season in the 5 years he was there. It literally means NOTHING to get your jersey retired by the Nuggets.

Itís not his stats. It was his attitude and how he forced himself off the team

What do titles have to do with anything? The Nuggets had a winning record ONE season when Mutombo was there. You have no business having your number retired when all you did was lead your team to mediocrity. Moron.

Do you think Vince Carter should get his jersey retired by the Raptors?

he did a lot for basketball in denver and helped lead them to the biggest upset in nba playoff history. he deserved to get his number retired - its a sign of honor and respect. he earned it.

but keep the insults coming. you have forgotten this is an internet message board and have mistaken myself for someone who gives a shit what you may think.

nevermind I just realized you are just PMSing after yesterdays game and a losing streak.
