The Denver Nuggets are having one of the best seasons in team history. They are currrently in third place in the western conference and are a very hard team to beat at home. All of that is due in part to the play of Danilo Gallinari who is the second leading scorer on the team. But things may take a turn for the worse now after Gallinari hurt his knee badly last night against the Mavericks and had to be carried off. Team officials fear he tore his ACL, which would sideline him until sometime next season. With leading scorer Ty Lawson already out for a while with a separate injury, the Nuggets all of a sudden went from sitting in a good spot, to serious worry mode about their chances in the playoffs. Check out how the injury happened after the jump.

This is some b.s. man!! Melo overpaid? compared to who? Well Forbes magazine seems to think so. Carmelo, who makes $19.4 million dollars this season is being called the most overpaid player for the 2012-2013 season. How can a player who is second in the NBA in scoring and is the main reason the Knicks are where they are be called overpaid. Forbes explanation for it is “scorers that don’t do other things well and that don’t shoot a solid percentage from the field tend to be overvalued”. Only problem is they are wrong, especially this season. Melo’s shooting percentage is up compared to past years, and he has been involving his teammates much more this year, and it shows in the Knicks winning record. Hit the jump to see the top 10 list of overpaid players and see what else they said about Melo.
