Carmelo Anthony will NOT lead this team to a championship...

Let me just start this off by saying that I think Carmelo Anthony is a truly great player, one of the top 20 in this league.  But our goal as Nets fans is a championship.  And making this trade for Carmelo Anthony will not help us get there.  And here is why.

Since Carmelo Anthony was drafted from Syracuse to the Nuggets, they have drastically improved.  The year before Melo, they went 17-65.  In Melo's rookie year, they won 43 games, a 26 game improvement, which is admittedly drastic.  Since then, they have been remarkably consistent, winning between 44-54 games in every year.  That is a damn solid, consistent team.  However, in every year except one, the Nuggets have lost in the first round of the Western Conference Finals.  They have never made the NBA Finals.  

The Nets right now, frankly, are terrible.  There's no other way to put it.  And for me as a fan, that is damn friggin' frustrating.  I hate watching them lose by 20 in low-energy, boring games.  I don't know how much more of that I can take.  I miss the days of the playoffs, with electric guys like VC.  I really want to watch Nets playoff games, and I know most of you Nets fans out there do too, and Carmelo would get us that.

But Carmelo Anthony would never win us championships, and it's a question of whether you're okay with that.  If you, as a fan, are okay with six years of 5-8 seed basketball with exits in the first or second round, you pull the trigger on the deal.  

But if that's not good enough for you, you wait and hope that Favors and whoever we pick with out many picks turn out to be cost-controlled stars.  

So, Nets fans, are you okay with being a decent, playoff team with no potential for more, or are you willing to endure more bad basketball and hope for lucky draft picks? 

That's what this trade comes down to.  So, what's your opinion?
