HAS THE NBA LOST ITS MIND?
Welcome to NBA All-Star weekend! We hope you enjoy all our great events -- the Celebrity Game, the Rookie Challenge, the Three-point Shootout, the Dunk Contest and, of course, the Carmelo Anthony Job Hunt, Presented By Kinko's.
According to various reports, Anthony, the Nuggets' star, will meet with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov while he is in Los Angeles. Anthony might also meet with Knicks owner Jim Dolan at some point. (Hint to Carmelo: If you want Dolan to trade for you, tell him your middle name is "Isiah.")
And this leads me to one subtle question: HAS THE NBA LOST ITS MIND?
Carmelo Anthony, one of the most recognizable stars in the league, is conducting job interviews with other teams in the middle of the season.
This is not just a farce. It is a league-approved farce. And it is another example of something that drives people inside the NBA crazy: the perception that the league selectively enforces its rules.
