Nuggets Suspend Anthony for Two Games

It was a real bitter sweet day for Carmelo Anthony.  Getting named to team USA sweet, getting suspended 2 games for a DUI bitter.  Ouch!

The Denver Nuggets suspended NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony for the first two games of the next season as punishment for his April arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.

The announcement by the team Monday comes a day before he is scheduled to enter a plea in the case. Anthony was also named to the U.S. Olympic team Monday.

Nuggets vice president of basketball operations Mark Warkentien said in a written statement the team will continue to support Anthony as he “strives to live up to the high expectations” set by the Nuggets and by Anthony.
