This offseason has been everything pundits and fans alike thought it would be. Rumors everywhere (even if they weren’t very legit), headline signings, and a lot of trades.

People didn’t think that Carmelo Anthony would be in the same topic. At least not until LeBron James and the rest of the A-list players were signed.

First, it was Chris Paul who was being rumored to leave the New Orleans Hornets, before the season started, via trade. But after seating down with the Hornets front-office, Paul apparently will wait until his contract is over.

After he stated, “I have been a Hornet my entire career and I hope to represent the city of New Orleans and state of Louisiana for many years to come.” everybody around the web started to put their attention to Anthony.

Anthony reportedly wanted to make a super team someplace not named Denver or Miami. Apparently he had a ”list” of his favorite teams he wanted to play for.

The New York Knicks and the Orlando Magic were at the top of the list, yet none had made or received trade offers.

Then it was the Houston Rockets and the New Jersey Nets that had a very good chance of getting Carmelo Anthony and signing him to a mutli-year deal. Once again, nobody tried to make a deal.

After all this media circus about Anthony leaving or staying, it has left a lot of hoops fans scratching their head.

So, what’s really happening?
