It's not too surprising that he'd go all out on the Nuggets considering what a big hoops fan he is. He's got a Super Bowl ring from his stake in the St. Louis Rams in 1999 and a Stanley Cup ring from the Avalanche, but there's nothing he wants more than an NBA championship. His moves may work out, they may not, but he's earned a lot of respect from the fans here simply because he's willing to take a shot.

He's the anti-Monforts.
The salary cap in the NHL is going to be a good thing for the NBA in Denver....
