Well, not together for a while at least.

This was worht the shot for Denver as the team they had now was not going to go far intot he playoffs. Iverson is as tough as it gets and if he is healthy provides a great 1-2 scoring punch with 'Melo.

And George Karl, too, who I think is the most curious part of the equation.

As much as I like the Iverson/'Melo combo, they're still missing a genuine big man presence down low, meaning they're still destined to fall to Phoenix or San Antonio in the playoffs. Marcus Camby and Nene won't cut it, and sending off Joe Smith may have just made that situation worse.

Now if they were to trade for a center before the trade deadline, then we can talk championship.

Eh, I can see the Nuggets (or any other team) winning a championship without a dominant center. The question, to me, is whether Carmelo and Iverson will be able to co-exist, and whether George Karl will be able to find enough shots for both of them.

One thing's for sure, it'll definitely be interesting to watch.

Having them both playing together on the same team right away is one thing, but I'm curious to see what happens after Melo comes back from suspension and it's already been AI's team for a month.

Would they have made the trade without the suspensions ? I'm not sure. Nuggets were doing alright before the suspension but 10-15 games without your star players can make a GM itchy.....

and does this now put the Nuggets in the lead for the team with the most tattoos ?
