When it comes to being dissatisfied with the Denver Nuggets, it looks like Carmelo Anthony is not alone. Teammate Kenyon Martin, who is rehabbing from knee surgery, is annoyed that the team hasn't offered him a contract extension, according to the Associated Press and close sources to the Nugget star.
"The last year of my deal; everybody knows that," Martin said. "Ain't nobody in a hurry to give me one ... so why would I be in a hurry to risk further injury? I'm not rushing into it."
The AP reported that while the 32-year-old Martin says he likes Al Harringon personally, he's annoyed that the Nuggets gave the former New York Knicks forward a five-year, $33 million contract this summer instead of giving that deal to him.
"Me and that man play the same position," Martin said. "I think they could have extended that offer to me. I feel with what I've done and what we've accomplished as a team around here got overlooked."
Martin is finishing up a seven-year, $93 million contract this season. In 323 games with the Nuggets, he's averaged 12.8 points and 7.0 rebounds per game.
It could be a long season in the Mile High City.
Kenyon Martin thinks he's the best defensive post player in recent NBA history. Says he's better than Mutombo, Howard and Ben Wallace
K-Mart on belief he's best post defender in recent NBA: "Deke guarded (just) fives. I guard one through fives... Ben just was a rebounder and Dwight Howard doesn't have my speed or versatility on defense''
Angered at the prank, he went back to the locker room spewing profanities and threats at teammates and other members of the organization.
"That ain't no [expletive] joke," Martin said. "I'm going to find out who did it ... put my [expletive] hands on one of y'all. I'm going to put my hands on whoever did it. You better believe that. It's [expletive] personal. You better believe it."
Martin, who has missed 15 games with a torn patella tendon in his left knee, threatened to boycott the postseason if he did not find out who was responsible.
"How 'bout if I don't play in the playoffs until somebody tells me who did it," Martin said more than once.

Mutumbo rarely guarded PF's because Duncan, JO, Dirk, Webber and KG in the early 00s would just face him up and beat him that way.
Ben guarded 4's and 5s but at their best NJ owned the Pistons, and Ben couldn't hold him in those playoffs. They would have beat Detroit in 04 if Kidd didn't get hurt half way in game 7 to the point he needed microfracture knee surgery
Kenyon didn't lie when he said he guarded 1-5. He didn't guard the 1 in Jersey because no PG was as good as pre-injury Kidd one on one on the ball at the time. He did guard 2-5. His matchup vs Shaq and Duncan in those finals prodcued better numbers than Mutumbo or Todd McCulough. In Denver, Karl took Martin and put him on Parker after AI got torched. When they played us in 08 they put him on Kobe to start the series, and then Pau after Pau started schooling Camby. In game 7 for their season, he shut Rudy Gay down when Rudy was hot to help the clippers advance after a series of containing Zach or Marc after DJ and Blake had let them go off. Kenyon was one of the best one on one post defenders of his time, especially healthy Kenyon which is why NJ made b2b finals, and he was and still as one of the most versatile defenders in the league on the ball as he can still keep perimeter players in front of him
Hate the guy all you want for talking spit, but he's talking some of the realest spit there is and anyone who has seen him play and followed him at his best and even last season where he literally wasn't in ball shapoe would know that.
As for the Nuggets beef, Kenyon never hid that. He was on Real NBA and said he told Melo go for the trade and JR go for FA because the Nuggets weren't about winning, respect, and Karl wasn't good enough to coach them to the next level.
Same with the prank. He never lied. I would put my hands on an idiot who stained all white interior on purpose. It was stupid to stain white interior, and they went in his locker and stole his keys to do it, which invades privacy
Just say you hate him context or no context

kblo247 wrote:Secondly he and Mutumbo played together and his post defense per possession was better than his vs Tim in the finals. Second, Deke didn't guard the great 4s in the early 00s, Kenyon did. Deke gayreded 5's which was basically Shaq and Yao.

Both are good quality guys, who would be great for our Locker room, and who both are good leaders on and off the court. Barbosa could be used as a combo 1-2. He was friends with Nash in Phoenix, and had a fantastic Olmypics, and while Thomas could provide toughness in the middle in the event of a Howard absence. He is a good rebounder, and is a great team player. I would be honored to have both of these guys in purple and gold.
Barbosa and Thomas....Please make it happen Mitch!!!!
