Everyone knew it was coming – that Melo would be leaving Denver – but sometimes my job allows me access to more info than I anticipate. Sunday night just before the All Star Game, I was given access to create portraits of the NBA All Stars. Carmelo and Chris Paul were waiting patiently and wanted to get a shot together. Chris wouldnt stop teasing Melo that this would be the last time he wore a West All Star Jersey. Carmelo wouldnt say a word but just kept grinning. Hopefully Chris will join him in New York after this season.
