    Carmelo Anthony spoke about the Drama with reporters in New Jersey before the Nets beat the Nuggets, 115-91.

    Here’s some key quotes:

    “The CBA is in the back of my mind, but as far as being afraid to play this out, I’m not. If that’s what it’s going to take, then so be it. I’m with that…”

    “If I sit here and tell you I’m willing to lose $15-20 million, then I’ll be lying to you. But at the same time, this has never been about the money. In my career so far, I think I’ve made enough money. Now I can focus on just trying to win a championship. That’s the only thing that’s on my plate and on my mind right now…”

    He also said he never received a text message from Amar’e Stoudemire.

    “I’ve read that, that he supposedly texted me. I didn’t get it. I didn’t get that text.”
