Welcome to the next installment of Kiszla 101.
In his most recent article, the best that Mark can do when comparing the Nuggets Carmelo Anthony, his past and most recent run-in with the law, and the Denver Broncos' young problematic receiver Brandon Marshall is they both sport the number 15.
On the one hand, Carmelo's off and on the court problems include the infamous "Stop Snitchin'" video, marijuana in a travel bag, a limp-wristed dry gulching of Mardy Collins, and the most recent driving while under the influence charges. And don't get me wrong, all of these incidents leave Carmelo in the wrong, but none of which are worthy of disowning Anthony or continuing to drag his name through the mud. The cameo was a bad decision made by a young man who had returned home to the streets he was raised on. Believe it or not, the marijuana was claimed by a friend. In my opinion, Mardy Collins deserved the slap that wobbled his legs for the goonery he pulled on J.R. Smith, and the most recent poor decision of getting behind the wheel when impaired is just flat out irresponsible; not just to 'Melo himself, his young son, and his fiance LaLa, but also the citizens of Denver, his teammates, and the rest of Nuggets organization.
Now, on the other hand, the Denver Broncos' wide receiver Brandon Marshall is his own man and it is of my opinion that anything he does is his business and in no way, shape, or form parallel to Carmelo Anthony or the Denver Nuggets and vice versa.
So, why is Kizsla trying to once again connect two dots that seemingly have nothing in common?
But did Kiszla mention any of those involvements?
The answer of course is an emphatic, "NO", because all the good stuff Carmelo is involved with doesn't get the same kind of press the few times he has been associated with negativity does. So, while we all pass time watching America's past time waiting for the Olympic games in Beijing to start. Just keep the big picture in mind when articles like the most recent offering from Mark Kiszla get published and remember that to fall from grace one must first obtain it. Unfortunately, Carmelo has done both, but all too often he doesn't get to bask in the good as much as he is ridiculed for the bad.
