Act Your Age, Not Your Jersey Number
The Nuggets blew a 17 point fourth quarter lead to the Atlanta Hawks last night at Pepsi Center and lost 98-96.
How did team leader Carmelo Anthony take it? According to Chris Tomasson of the Rocky Mountain News:
After the game, a frustrated Anthony took his jersey off and threw it into the stands. While in the hallway, he took off his rib protector and then his shorts, kicking his shorts down the corridor as he walked wearing just his Under Armor. Anthony did not make himself available to the media afterward.
Melo has to grow up. Leaders of professional athletes do not act like little kids. They act like men, leave there shorts on, and address the media. They do not throw a tantrum and hide from the mean people with tape recorders and notebooks.
