Carmelo Anthony wants Denver fans to know that he’s really, truly sorry for subjecting them to six months of trade rumours and forcing his way out of town to play for the New York Knicks. He posted this message on his Web site yesterday:

    A Note to My Denver fans

    I had to let you know how I felt about you, the city, my fans, my friends. You’ve been supportive of me and my NBA career for the past 8 years and that doesn’t go unnoticed.

    Drafted when I was 19 I called Denver and the Nuggets my home. The city and the fans embraced me and watched me grow as a man and a player.

    There are no words to express the gratitude and appreciation I have for Denver, the Nuggets and all the fans.

    You will always be a part of my heart.

    One Love,

Of course, the trade might be much easier to stomach now for Denver than its fans originally thought — the team has gone 5-1 since the trade.
