WHY DID ANTHONY RECEIVE A LONGER SUSPENSION?

Three Denver Nuggets and 4 New York Knicks players were suspended for at least one game after a fight broke out at the end of their game on Saturday. Carmelo Anthony was suspended for 15 games, Nate Robinson was suspended for 10 games, and J.R. Smith was suspended for 10 games. They were the 3 players that were suspended the longest amount of time. I've watched the tape highlights over and over again and I'm not sure why Carmelo Anthony was suspended for more games than the other two. The main fight seemed to be between Nate Robinson and J.R. Smith. What did Anthony do that would cause him to be suspended for longer? Anyone?

DENVER NUGGETS PLAYERS HAVE A BIG HEART!

Last week, Denver Nuggets players Jamal Sampson and Earl Boykins, helped out with a national initiative called Lift Up America. Currently, Lift Up America is sponsored by Tyson Foods, Luxottica, Starkey Hearing, and Interstate Batteries. Boykins and Sampson helped distribute 30,000 lbs of chicken and 4,000 batteries to 35 different Denver agencies that provide services to low income families and the homeless. Like a lot of other professional basketball teams, the Denver Nuggets are helping out during this season of caring. Kudos!

CARMELO ANTHONY'S DONATION

The Denver Nuggets forward and captain, Carmelo Anthony, has provided one of the largest donations that the Syracuse University Athletics has ever seen. The 3 million dollar donation would pay for the construction of a new basketball practice facility that can house two practice courts, locker rooms, and office facilities for the men's and women's basketball programs at Syracuse. As Borat would say, "Very Nice! High Five, Carmelo!"
