Carmelo Anthony Benched for 15 Games After Brawl

Carmelo Anthony picIn a very Un-Melo moment, NBA leading scorer Carmelo Anthony sucker punched Mardy Collins during a Nuggets-Knicks game Saturday night during a bench-clearing brawl. As a result, Melo is going to sit his 31.6-point-scoring-average ass on the bench for the next 15 games.

The NBA also suspended the Knicks' Nate Robinson and the Nuggets' J.R. Smith for 10 games each, and New York's Mardy Collins - who's flagrant fowl started it all - was sacked for six games.

A total of 10 players - basically, everybody - were ejected from the Nuggets' 123-100 route over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Melo (who shouldn't have been in the game that late with that lead anyway) issued a statement on the Nuggets website: "Last night's altercation with the Knicks escalated further than it should have. I take full responsibility for my actions in the matter. In the heat of the moment I let my emotions get the best of me. I apologize to the fans, the Denver Nuggets, the NBA, my mother, and my family for the embarrassment I have caused them. I ask you all for your forgiveness. I also want to make a personal apology to Mardy Collins and his family. My actions were inexcusable, and I am sorry for making this an even more embarrassing situation."

"What makes this all the more painful is that this was one of the most important weeks of my life. I just realized one of my biggest dreams when we opened the Youth Center in Baltimore that bares my name. To see the community excited and hundreds of kids smiling was an incredible feeling. Now the thought of thousands of kids seeing this incident on TV pains me. This is not the example I want to set. It's my hope that we work to move forward from this event, and never let something like this happen again."

Until Melo's 4 week vacation ends, and Anthony, Smith and Nene get back from their suspensions, the Nuggets are going to be very shorthanded.
