Rumors have been spreading that Carmelo Anthony may be leaving the Denver Nuggets soon but according to Carmelo, “this is not my last game,” with the Nuggets. Carmelo has yet to sign his three-year, $64.47 million contract extension with the Nuggets. If he opts out of his contract he could become a free agent next summer.
There have been reports that his wife Lala Vazquez is the one dictating where Carmelo should play and he says that’s NOT TRUE!
“You all put this in bold words, LaLa has nothing to do with anything,” said Anthony, whose Nuggets (21-16) broke a three-game losing streak Tuesday. “Whatever is my decision, she’s going to support me. She has nothing to do with me staying here or me leaving or nothing. So please keep her out of it.
“People, they have to write about something, and for them to just come up with, ‘(Vazquez) don’t want to be (in Denver).’ She has nothing to do with that. This is my career. This is my decision. Of course, I got to consult her with everything. But it wasn’t one conversation I said where she told me, ‘Let’s get out of (Denver).”
Well, he made that pretty clear, he’s the one making the final decision.
