Thanks to my friend Kurt, for these great pictures. While at the Starbuck’s at Belleview and Syracuse the other day, he ran into Denver Nuggets Chris Andersen and Anthony Carter. Kurt ended up talking with their agent, and then was able to snap a few pictures of the vehicles Birdman and A.C. were driving that day. Chris’s new ride is the black truck – a converted semi, and A.C. was driving the green Hummer.
Hey, what would you do if you just had signed a sweet new contract with your employer that would pretty much set you up for the rest of your life?
As for how this relates back to basketball, I am glad that the Nuggets resigned Chris Andersen with decent deal for both sides. Terms of the deal weren’t officially announced by the Nuggets but according to ESPN, it was a 5 year, 26 million dollar contract that is back-loaded and incentive driven that more than fairly pays the Birdman for his talents on the court and still gives the Denver Nuggets some financial flexibility in the next couple of seasons.
As for Anthony Carter, who is also a free agent right now, there is still a chance that he will be back another season to compete with rookie Ty Lawson for the backup point guard position. Carter played well for the Nuggets the past two season and brings solid defense and playmaking in his role.
