Carmelo Anthony explains comments
"I think a lot of people take that [wrong] because that's not giving them anything, no information," Anthony said Friday. "When I say I want to keep my options open, that doesn't mean anything else.
"I think a lot of people just hear that and want to start saying what they want to say."
Anthony says he appreciates that Nuggets fans are emotionally invested and want him to seem that way as well. Anthony says those fans can still count on him to play hard and try to win games for the Nuggets as long as he's with the club, and that everyone will just have to see what happens in the future.
Anthony also says he liked the way the Nuggets looked not only in their season-opening win over Utah this week, but throughout the preseason.
"As far as the fans go, I'm going to give them what they want," Anthony said. "I'm going to go out there and play basketball, try to win basketball games, and in the future we'll see what happens."
