Clippers in the running for Carmelo?

Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post thinks so:

Meanwhile, if the Nuggets cannot convince Carmelo Anthony to sign an extension with the team and they decide to trade him at some point, could it be to the Los Angeles Clippers? I’m hearing it could be a possibility. It would get both he and his wife, La La, out to where entertainment opportunities are plentiful, which is key factor in their decision to want to move on. The Nuggets might be able to get a good young player or two or draft picks, and Anthony would be able to play on a team with some good up-and-coming talent.

“I’m hearing it could be a possibility.”

I love statements like that. He’s not saying that it’s a possibility, he’s saying that it could be possible. In other words, it’s possible that it’s possible.

Great.

Clipper fans are a loyal, downtrodden bunch. Let them be. They just missed out on LeBron James even though they were never really in the running. Owner Donald Sterling vastly underestimates how bad his image is around the league, and the Clippers aren’t likely to have sustained success until he sells the team.
