Beyond Melo

I’m finally getting back into the groove of reading TrueHoop every day, and the top post on today’s Wednesday Bullets gave me a quick thought that I figure is worth sharing.

Charlie from Roundball Mining Company on the (undefeated!) post-Melo Nuggets: “Just a few days ago, this was a zombie team hardly recognizable as the former contenders they once were. The only thing driving them was the undead rumor mill of Melo speculation that manifested itself in a new form after every attempt to kill it. I have to be honest, I no longer cared about the team I love… Melo got what he wanted, after a long nightmare that consumed not only the Nuggets’ season but those of all the new players who arrived in Denver tonight via trade. Finally, a vision for a team fully committed to each other. Players who want a future now with the meaningful role and the environment to grow into themselves. The Nuggets are finally fighting for something real and exciting as for the first time in months they are a real team.”

Sometimes it’s really cool just to watch a group of people figure out how to come together and work toward something other than just winning the next game. It’s a big part of why I love playing and watching sports.
