Nets pull out of race for Carmelo (sports.espn.go.com)

And from the sound of things, it ain't no negotiating ploy.

Instantly, Denver's gone from getting a potential motherload to most likely (AT BEST) getting scraps from a team that could rent out Carmelo for the rest of the season in pursuit of a title. The Knicks clearly have no reason now to give up the farm when 'Melo's made it clear that New York (and not Brooklyn) is his next long-term destination, and there's no other team out there able or willing to overpay for Carmelo long term.

Dare it might actually be best for Denver to stand pat and take one last shot before everything goes to hell in a handbasket this summer?

Prokhorov is a badass. I wish he owned the Knicks.

They're still in the picture for Melo, they just turned the tables on Denver and are now dealing on their terms.

Who is "they?" If you mean the Knicks, then I'm confused, because I'm not sure what they did to turn the tables, seeing as how this was all the doing of the Nets. And if you mean the Nets, I'm even more confused because I really don't think this is a ploy at all and they truly are out of the running.

So which did you mean?

I'm so sick of Melo. I hope Kroenke sends him to Cleveland, just to show one of these spoiled athletes that they don't get to hold an entire team hostage, just because they want to play in a big city.

Denver could be a title contender. They showed it with the way they've beaten the Lakers and the Heat. Instead, Anthony's single-handedly sinking them with this crap.

He's very one-dimensional so I am inclined to agree.
