DENVER —

Carmelo Anthony simply won't recognize these Denver Nuggets - even though he had just about everything to do with the makeup of their roster.

The New York Knicks visit the Pepsi Center on Wednesday night in Anthony's first trip back to Denver since forcing his way out of town more than two years ago in a blockbuster trade that reshaped both franchises.

The only familiar face he'll see is that of point guard Ty Lawson. None of the other Nuggets were here when he was wearing powder blue and gold.

Both teams have benefited from the trade that landed the Nuggets a bevy of young players, trade exemptions and draft picks they've used to retool their roster and which gave the Knicks a bona fide star to build a team around.
