If you're desperately hunting for a sign that Carmelo Anthony is going to be traded soon -- and I'm sure you are -- you might not have to look any further than Melo's own gym.

Via the Denver Post,
Pepsi Center gift shops are selling Carmelo Anthony jerseys at 50 percent off. The explanation given is "an excess of inventory" but I don't think any of us are that dense.

With Saturday night's home game potentially being the last one ever for Carmelo in Denver, everyone is trying to milk the last little bit they can out of that golden cow.

The Nuggets pounded the Cavaliers 127-99 with Anthony scoring just 12 points in the win. Obviously he wasn't really needed as the Cavs are absolutely horrific.

But if Melo is leaving, it's at least on semi good terms. The team has won three straight, has averaged 129.6 points a game and the margin of victory has been an average of 30 points per game. Pretty nice way to say goodbye.

Obviously maybe there's nothing to read into with the gifts shops liquidating their Melo inventory. Maybe it really is an excess supply thing. Maybe it was just a chance to maybe sell some more jerseys. Maybe sales had dipped seriously because of all the trade speculation. Or maybe it's a sign.

Whatever the case, if you're in the market for a Nuggets No. 15 jersey, now's your chance.

Pepsi Center selling Melo jerseys 50 percent off

I'm sure all the die hard fans are gonna grill me on this one. However, I don't and never have believed Denver could win a championship with Carmello Anthony. His early years he provied to be a pretty selfish player. I think as he has gotten older he has improved defensively, but what bothers me most is the true colors he showed early in his career. It's hard to change that basic characteristic and I don't really see him as an inspiring leader. Certainly, you cannot argue he has demonstrated any inspirational words or actions during his demand to be traded to NYC. I just hope the Nuggets get as much as they can for this guy. If he wins a championship it will need to be with more than just Amare Stoudamire.

It is an excess of inventory.  Once he is traded they are going to have to give those away to sell them.  So, more than one would be an excess of inventory.
