I grew up watching two pro teams in Colorado, the Broncos and the Nuggets. I watched some god-aweful Nuggets teams and I watched some good young Nuggets teams over the years. It looks like Kroenke has put together a good front office for the team which is helping and the Nuggets have stuck with George Karl too. So, there is some stability.
As for Melo being gone, that is great too. Melo wanted out of Denver and not only this, he wanted to only play for one team. The Nuggets, to their credit, orchestrated a great trade. The NYK's got what they wanted and the Nuggets got some talent in return. By definition, this is what a "trade" is all about. You have to give up something in order to get something.
I'll be watching the Nugz in the playoffs and hoping they finally put it all together for a run at the championship.
