Dec. 19 - When the Denver Nuggets made Tuesday's trade for Allen Iverson, they not only got themselves a a seven-time All-Star but they also acquired a four-time scoring champion.

With Denver's Carmelo Anthony leading the league in scoring at 31.6 points a game and Iverson right behind him at 31.2, the Nuggets figure to have as potent a 1-2 punch as there is in the league once Anthony serves the remaining 14 games of his 15-game suspension for fighting.

If Anthony and Iverson remain atop the scoring race, they would become only the third teammates in league history to finish first and second in scoring. Interestingly enough, the other two duos played on teams from Denver and Philadelphia.

Alex English (28.4 ppg.) and Kiki Vandeweghe 26.7) were the last teammates to accomplish the feat, doing so for the Nuggets in 1982-83. Neil Johnston (22.7 ppg) and Paul Arizin (21 ppg) were the first teammates to finish atop the scoring list when they did it for the Philadelphia Warriors in 1954-1955.
