Denver Nuggets: The Carmelo bandwagon is picking up steam. A day after Charles Barkley chose 'Melo over LeBron James as his Rookie of the Year, Magic Johnson joined the crowd. "The hype (the two have had) is wonderful," Johnson said in the Rocky Mountain News. "They both deserve it. They've changed two franchises. But Carmelo has changed Denver more at this point than LeBron has Cleveland. That's why (I) think he should be Rookie of the Year. He's a winner. He's a player who does a lot of different things. He commands respect."
