In basketball these days, there’s a lot the talk of the Big Three in Boston, and even the 3-pack in New Jersey. I just found myself wondering, “How the hell aren’t we talking about the TRIO in Denver?” Last time I checked, the Nuggets acquired Mr. Allen Iverson. They also have shot-swatting Marcus Camby. And how can we forget trico-USA MVP Carmelo Anothony. That’s Anthony-Iverson-Camby! If you ask me, I’d take these guys over the boys in New Jersey any day. But would you take them over the boys in Boston? Probably not. Since Iverson moved to Denver, he’s lost part of his harder image as he’s had to share the spotlight with Anthony. Many people haven’t seen Anthony as a leader just quite yet because of his lack of experience. I think many people will be seeing these guys make some noise in the west this year, as Anthony proved he is plenty reliable to be the leader on a team, as we just saw in World play. Personally, I think it’ll be a great match up between Boston and Denver when they play this season, and I’ll be on my couch waiting for tip off.
