I think it's a great move and I'll tell you why.
I've been a Nuggets fan since the mid 80's. I've sat through enough five year plans and rebuilding phases that I'm more than ready for a ballsy move like this one. I'm ready for them to take chance on being great, despite the risks involved.
It could very well be a disaster and blow up in their faces.....but then it may very well work out. The potential reward is well worth the risk when you've been subjected to the horrid times that I have during the 20+ years I've been following them.
Call them the Thuggets all you want, I'll call them the closest thing to a contender this team has been since the days when English & Issel were on the roster.
