Carmelo Anthony’s name trended on Twitter Friday after his first NBA team, the Denver Nuggets, left him out of a photo that included some of the best Nuggets players of all time while asking followers to name their favorite Nugget.

Anthony was drafted third overall with the Nuggets in 2003, and played seven full seasons in Denver before pushing for a trade to the Knicks in 2011. Anthony helped lead the Nuggets to the playoffs every year he was with the team, going as far as the Western Conference Finals in 2009, and pushing Kobe Bryant’s Lakers to six games. Anthony was voted to an All-NBA team four times with the Nuggets, and is third on the Nuggets’ all-time scoring list.

To many, Anthony’s exclusion from the graphic was disrespectful, and fans stood up for Anthony on Twitter.

 

The Portland Trail Blazers even issued a response, copying the Nuggets’ tweet with their own slate of legends – which includes Anthony.
