Anthony takes verbal shot at Bosh

WASHINGTON — Fair or unfair, Chris Bosh has become the poster boy for bad NBA exits.

At least that’s the only conclusion one can draw from these words from Carmelo Anthony, a guy who very well could be in the process of making his own exit from the team that drafted him in Denver.

In an interview with Peter Vescey of the New York Post, Anthony made it clear that if he leaves he will do so on the best possible terms, having been completely up front with his former employers about his intentions.

That was the original goal for Bosh too with both the Raptors franchise player and GM Bryan Colangelo vowing to work together for the best possible solution. Somewhere along the way, those agendas went different directions and the eventual parting was not an amicable one.

The Nuggets have the advantage of having Masai Ujiri, their new general manager and one of Colangelo’s trusted lieutenant’s a year ago handling things in Denver. He had a front-row seat for how things went downhill in Toronto and can learn from that experience.

Anthony says it will not be contentious no matter what the result.

“I’m not Chris Bosh,” Anthony told Vescey. “We’re not the same person. What I do will be straight up. Management knows that.”
