The Denver Nuggets’ official social media account took a huge shot at Carmelo Anthony without even having to mention him.

On Friday morning, the account asked fans who their favorite Nuggets player of all time is. However, they noticeably left out Anthony.

Anthony, 36 played in Denver for over seven seasons before he was traded.

In his time in Denver, the sharpshooter averaged 24.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. He also averaged 24.5 points, 7.1 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 45 career playoff games for the Nuggets.

The veteran led the Nuggets to the 2009 Western Conference Finals, where they got knocked off by Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers in six games. Before that 2009 run, the Nuggets had only been to the Western Conference Finals twice.

Furthermore, Anthony is third on the franchise’s all-time scoring list.

The Nuggets traded Anthony to the New York Knicks midway through the 2010-11 regular season.
