Carmelo is Going for 44 Tonight

Carmelo Anthony
Tonight, the Chauncey Billups-less Nuggets are going to be playing the Golden State Warriors. Carmelo Anthony has something planned for them:

At the Nuggets’ shootaround, there was a post-election buzz. Carmelo Anthony smiled and said “I’m going to try to score 44 tonight,” in honor of president-elect Barack Obama, who was elected Tuesday as America’s 44th president.

It is against the Warriors, so it’s not out of the question that it could happen.

What does ‘Melo end up with tonight?

  • The Real Tyrone

    Anthony is just a wannabe punkass thug. He ain’t all that ya’ll – ain’t never got outta the first round in them playoffs. All ‘melo can do is get them points – he ain’t able to defend nobody and he ain’t much of a dime disher as well y’all. He’s gettin’ 25 points with 2 rebounds, 2 dimes and 5 turnovers punks.

    True thugs never lie.

  • A$$Cube aka Trade Checker

    28 on a poor shooting performance. Captain Jack’s gonna be all over him tonight. G’luck Melo!

  • blah

    I can’t stand that true thugs never lie bs, I sweat Tyrone is a white gay dude from Malibu or something, but I agree with his opinion on melo. One dimensional second tier player.

  • JDigiac

    Carmelo has the athleticism to be multi dimensional. He’s just lazy and doesn’t have the drive. If he ever gets it, his name and second tier won’t be mentioned together.

    @ 5 I don’t think that’s the real Tyrone that was on here before, I think that’s an impostor. The way he talks he sounds like a white dude trying to act black.

  • Haqq

    WTF… Melo is the shieeeeeeeeeeeeeeet, watch the Beijing games… NUFFFSAID.

  • Homeless J

    I never understand why some guys like to announce that they’re going to torch a team or get a certain amount of points before a game. It’s like going out on the court and yelling HEY EVERYBODY, THROW ME OFF MY GAME! MORESO THAN USUAL, PLEASE! THANKS!

    It almost never works. It’s like the episode of Seinfeld where Kramer gives the Make-A-Wish kid a signed Yankees ball that he wasn’t supposed to give away, and then has to bargain for it back by guaranteeing that some yankee was going to get three home runs. At that point, even if you get two home runs with bases loaded, it’s still not enough. If Melo scores 38 points tonight, normally it would be looked at as great, especially since it seems like he gets all of his points on mid-range jumpers, but now it won’t be enough. And now that AI is gone, he’s the only offensive option and will be the one guy that teams are going to shut down anyway. He should have just gone out and tried to score 44 and if he did, dedicate it to Obama.

  • http://GEE2.com GEE…Oooh I can’t believe it!

    Melo gets 43 in another turn of things that upset him. Can’t win for losin pimpin.

  • http://GEE2.com GEE…Oooh I can’t believe it!

    On another note, how bout just get the win!

  • weezy f

    42 i call it…we should get a prize for whoever is on point

  • Eduardo

    Is it really confirmed that Chauncey ain’t playing?

  • Homeless J

    I got my money on 41 points.

    DAILY DOUBLE: I predict he’ll narrowly miss out on his mark at the end of the game with missed free throws and a missed three pointer at the end of regulation.

  • JDigiac

    What if he gets 44 in the 3rd or early 4th and it’s a close game? Or he has 44 and a break away?

  • Ree

    Melo gets his 44 and is pleased with himself, although his team gives up 110 points and loses by 20.

  • SayItIsntSo

    Id just settle on Carmelo actually playing the game with some HEART for once.

  • http://www.myspace.com/carli_borikua4life QuEsT???

    what the fuck is wrong with billups, why the fuck hasnt he taken his physical? ive been waiting all week to see iverson in a pistons uniform and i have to wait for him! ive always hated billups now i hate him even more.

  • iLL Mago

    This made me laugh, especially knowing he had his WISDOM teeth removed not long ago. Fantasy owners beware LoL

  • Big T

    Why doesn’t he just get a tattoo of the number ’44’? Seems more realistic than him dropping 44 points on any team in the league.

  • David Brandon

    i’ma call it! 37…6 boards, 2 assists and like 5 to’s.

  • LakeShow84

    He gets 24 points but with 44 attempts??

    And can we not all read into this and bash the poor guy? Hes happy cuz we got a black president and us brothas is bout to be celebratin all year.. if not for the next for years.. He said something good and foos is talkin mad shit.. Do we not remember he made Denver a playoff team in the WEST?? so what is hes Tmac2..

    i told all my white coworkers to report to the cotton fields at 5am tomorrow.. Whatchyall got to say bout that?? LOLOLOLOLOL

  • Dennis Castro

    How about he just tries to win the game. F all that political bs related to this.

    Watching Lebron tonight, you give him the team Melo’s had the past couple years, that’s a 55+ win team in Denver, and Cleveland wouldn’t win 30 games with Melo leading them.

    Coming out of Syracuse, I thought he was going to be a very good player and leader. Since then he’s become Glenn Robinson 2.0.

  • tealish

    Melo is the 4th best player of his draft. And arguably, only the 5th in terms of who I’d want on my team. (David West, I’m looking at you)

  • kowtz

    Actual stats:

    Melo had 28 points on 13-30 shooting, 0-4 from the arc, plus a 10 point loss…

    way to dedicate this performance to the new president…

  • A$$Cube aka Bet Winner

    Who said he was going for 28? Me!

    Next time don’t open up your mouth too much Melo… Ahaha!

  • White Boy

    Read the Presidential column where dime is racist….

    123 has a point. Whats up with the racism dime???

    The whole time you backed obama too, and killed mccain or palin.

    Dont mind the backing, but accusing people of lying, then not mentioning when obama lies…

    why the racism???

    here is your boy lying…

    The Chicago Sun reported on May 8, 2008 that FBI records showed that you had a significantly closer relationship with Tony Rezko than what you previously admitted. In the interview, you said that you only saw Mr. Rezko a couple of times a year. The FBI files showed that you saw him weekly While the issue of your relationship is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied
    to America about it.

    i got plenty more dime

  • doc

    Whoever is out there calling point totals before the game is not a team player.

  • Derik
