I'm so sick of this guy, and he's flat killing the team. JR Smith looks ready. Let him have the 4th quarter minutes until he proves he can't handle it. Miller can control the ball. It just makes me sick evertime Boykins gets the ball in his hands late in the game, because you know no one else will touch it 'till there are 5 or less seconds on the clock.
On the bright side,
great game by Carmelo tonight, big contributions from JR Smith, Camby, and Reggie Evans, and a very good road win against a Philly team that's been playing well.
Did I mention I'm sick of Boykins?
Boykins has been on my **** list all year. I used to give him a break because he brought energy to the team and all, but he is such a detriment to the team it just isn't funny.
That being said the Nuggs get off the schnide tonight! I think overall they are in better shap than people think (lost their first 3 games by a COMBINED 6points). But I would love to see them move dead weight like Najera and Boykins for a true shooter. Won't happen, though, because king Karl loves both of them.
