Watched Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks find a way to lose on Friday night to the Denver Nuggets. Watched Carmelo deliver a jordans for sale mediocre level of effort, take a lot of shots and play below average defense. Also watched Carmelo fail to record a single assist.

But Carmelo lacks Kobe raging competitiveness. Kobe constantly hustles, giving his absolute best on offense and defense. Carmelo often slacks when the ball isn in his hands. His attention wanders. He fails to run the court with enthusiasm, and this is one of jordans for sale the requirements for greatness. Jogging back on defense is not a something you saw with Magic or Bird or Tim Duncan or Kobe.

It is something you see with Carmelo.

Yes, Carmelo is the greatest player in Nuggets history. He ranks above Alex English and David Thompson and Dan Issell. He led the Nuggets to the 2009 Western Conference Finals. The Nuggets were the second best team in the NBA in 2009, the high point in the franchise NBA history.

Nuggets fans remember those good days. This explains why Nuggets fans booed Carmelo every time he touched the ball. This is what is known as the Treatment. asked Carmelo after the game if the Treatment bothered him. He asked what I meant, and I told him.

no, he said in a friendly, laughing tone. He explained that he past that stage.

Here the problem, Carmelo, Kobe isn past that stage. He still cares about virtually everything, still allows unfriendly fans to fuel the remarkable fire in his gut. Kobe cares, and that one of the main reasons why Kobe owns six NBA championship rings.

And Carmelo looks on his way to one of those zero ring careers.

News flash:

Air Force Troy Calhoun showed emotion during his press conference following his team dreary 41 21 loss to UNLV on a wickedly cold night at Falcon Stadium. (Must admit that I did not have to endure the cold; I watched from the cozy pressbox.)

"Are there challenges? There are challenges," Calhoun said. "Yet at the same time, just growing up and being a young man, at some point as a leader you've got to say, 'You know what, I'm ready to do it.'"

That pretty much sums up Calhoun press conference. He said on the team cheap jordans should take responsibility for the poor effort, but he declined, despite repeated questions, to ever get specific. This diluted his message. Saying over and over is close to saying one over and over.

He was repetitive, another Calhoun trademark. During most of his meetings with the press, Calhoun talks as much about graduation as he does about touchdowns. He sticks to the message, no matter what.

As the weather forecast worsens, the sports question of the week becomes ever more interesting.

How many Air Force fans will find the courage and their long underwear cheap jordans hidden somewhere in a drawer to face the vicious weather for Thursday clash against UNLV?

(I don expect to see a single UNLV fan in the stands, by the way.)

I guessing slightly below 10,000, but this guess might be optimistic. If the weather had been ideal, a crowd of 16,000 or so would have gathered to watch an Air Force team mired in an historically awful losing streak. Air Force fans have a serious dislike for attending weeknight games, even when the team is winning.

Your guess at Thursday attendance?

A few minutes after stifling Colorado College, goalie Jason Torf told me he believes the Air Force hockey squad is the most popular sports team among his fellow cadets.

tell jumpman23 shoes the football team, Torf said, laughing.

I think players and coaches on the football team already suspect the truth, Jason.

Torf was sensational, especially in the third period, against CC. He the biggest reason Air Force reigns as the best hockey team in Colorado Springs.
