Start the Carmelo Anthony suicide watch

March 27, 2011

It’s hard to believe that there can be somebody that hardcore New York basketball fans hate more than Stephon Marbury. However, that was before Carmelo Anthony arrived at The Garden to personally destroy what had been a pretty successful season for Mike D’Antoni and the Knicks.

Saturday night, New York lost its sixth straight NBA game. Charlotte beat New York 114-106 as the Knicks horrible defense kept getting torched by waiver wire scrubs like Dominic McGuire and Shaun Livingston. To add further humiliation to the league’s coldest team, the Denver Nuggets, Melo’s former club, is now 11-4 since the Knicks/Nuggets megatrade. It’s more than just blog fodder, the Nuggets are literally “better off” without Anthony.

Melo spent this entire season orchestrating, conniving and manipulating his trade to the Knicks-a deal that has now blown up in his and everybody else in New York’s faces. The Knicks gave up half their club and three draft picks to acquire Anthony rather than just wait a couple of months and sign him as a free agent this summer. BIG mistake. While Raymond Felton, Danillo Galinari and Wilson Chandler have all been solid additions to the Nuggets, Anthony and fellow superstar Amare’ Stoudemire have had all the on-court chemistry of Uma Thurman and Ralph Fiennes in the movie “The Avengers.”

The Knicks were assumed to be a playoff lock this season but have now fallen to under .500 and seventh in the Eastern Conference. Hindsight being 20/20, everybody is now second-guessing the Anthony trade. Hell, things are so bad that even LeBron James now feels sorry for Anthony because fans hate him so badly. Naturally, the tabloids are now deservedly KILLING Melo:

MELO: “I TAKE MY HAT OFF TO MYSELF”

CARMELO ANTHONY

NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony is impressed. With himself.

In an interview with Fanhouse.com, Anthony congratulated HIMSELF for being able to play basketball at a high level despite the turmoil and trade rumors that have surrounded him all season. Of course, he didn’t mention that those rumors and the entire chaos is entirely of his own making.

Melo has averaged 40.3 points in his last three games. He told Fanhouse, “I take my hat off to myself for dealing with all this stuff.” Melo also complimented himself for being “strong-willed”and “strong-minded.”

HOMEWRECKER CLUBWRECKER LALA VAZQUEZ

Several media outlets are painting Carmelo Anthony’s wife, former MTV VJ and reality tv actress LaLa Vazquez, as the villain in his possible departure from the Denver Nuggets.

The Denver Post bitterly reported that “league sources” are saying Vazquez is demanding Anthony play basketball in either New York or Los Angeles. Vazquez recently talked to the Daily News saying the New York market is a “possibility” for her husband. Trade talks between the New Jersey Nets and the Denver Nuggets involving a four-team swap sending Anthony to New Jersey may be ongoing despite earlier reports that the rumored deal was “dead.”

LALA VAZQUEZ: DALLAS FANS CALLED MY SON A BASTARD!

LALA VAZQUEZ AND CARMELO ANTHONY

The story of Lala Vazquez versus the Dallas Mavericks fans will not go away. That’s probably because its not every day that a celebrity who appears on a show called “Charm School” punches a fan in the face and gets caught on video (below) being removed from an arena.

In an interview with the website momlogic.com, the fiance of Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony accuses Dallas basketball fans of not only yelling racial slurs at her during the Nuggets/Mavericks playoff series, but calling her two-year-old son a “bastard.”

Vazquez says Dallas fans sitting behind her at Game 4 began chanting “f*** the Nuggets.” She says as the game went on and the fans got “drunker” they began dropping N-bombs, calling the Nugget players “N****s.” Vazquez says the chanting got out of hand when the Dallas fans began calling Vazquez and Anthony’s two-year-old son a “bastard” while the child was at the game. The taunting got so bad, that Vazquez had the boy’s nanny remove him from the arena.

LALA VASQUEZ GOES OFF ON “RACIST” DALLAS FANS

LALA VASQUEZ

LaLa Vasquez is the girlfriend and baby mama of Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony. She is also a former MTV VJ and a celebrity herself, so presumably Vasquez knows how to behave in public. Yesterday, there was video shown of Vasquez getting thrown out of the Nuggets playoff game in Dallas.

 Deadspin.com  has compiled some great video, not only of the Vasquez incident, but of Nuggets player Kenyon Martin yelling a stream of obsenities at Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. The video has so many expletives that the NBC affiliate in Dallas has since removed it from their website (although they do still have the hilarious headline, “Cuban Apologizes After K-Mart Calls him MF’er.”

There are several reports that Dallas fans threw things at both Vasquez and Martin’s mother. Also Tuesday, Vasquez issued a statement saying that “racial taunts” and threats of violence against her led to the incident where she was thrown out of the Nuggets/Mavericks game. The story is certainly receiving different play in Denver than it has in Dallas. With Vasquez involved in the fiasco, the coverage has also crossed into the Hollywood entertainment media. Notorious blogger Perez Hilton wrote that LaLa Vasquez punched one of the Dallas fans in the face before her ejection.
