Chandler has averaged 13.1 points per game during his time in Denver, mainly as a player who plays well one night and then disappears for two weeks. Four months after the trade, Felton was shipped to Portland in exchange for Andre Miller, a point guard who gave Nuggets fans heartburn on and off the court. Gallinari is poised to miss the entire 2013-14 season after suffering a torn ACL at the end of last year, making his long-term prognosis a question mark.
Koufas was traded this past offseason for Darrell Arthur, who is averaging 5.0 points and 3.1 rebounds per game this year. And Mozgov is a garden-variety center if there ever was one, averaging a little more than five points per game since coming to Denver.
Meanwhile, Anthony has been a star in the Big Apple. As a Knick, he’s averaged 26.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. He’s been named an All-Star every year in orange and blue. He won the NBA scoring title for the 2012-13 season. And last year, he led New York to their first playoff series victory in 13 years.
Yet somehow, people still think Denver won the trade. In what possible way could that be true?
