Oh I agree...I'm very happy with the FO and Karl, although I sometimes think WTF with some of his decision....that's why he coaches and I don't!! LMAO

First off, would the elite piece want to be here? Not many elite pieces do, if any. Most of them are b****es that want to play on the coasts.

Second, would the elite piece commit to what Karl is coaching, and play intense defense while being unselfish on offense? Or would that piece demand 30 shots a game and be a ball stopper?

I don't blame Bosh for wanting to play somewhere else, plus he was a free agent.

If Lawson is an elite piece, you better get more players to complement him.

That piece needs to be an elite scorer, which the Nuggets do not have. I commend them for putting pieces together, but they need to make the trade for the next step.

Have you just refused to watch the nuggets or even look at the standings?

And this attitude that once the playoffs start everything just automatically reverts to a half court sludgefest....we'll see about that too. Like I said, the nuggets are great at sucking teams into a running game. If opponents want a half court snorefest when they play us they'd better be sprinting back after turnovers, missed shots, even made shots...cuz this team is always looking for an opportunity to catch opponents sleeping.

Really...give me a name then...who should the Nuggets go after? I contend that if you just inserted melo onto this team as is they would not be any better, and in fact would be worse than they are right now.

Because any elite player or scorer they would get would have to buy into what Karl is coaching, otherwise everything gets ****ed up.

Most likely free agent signing is rumored to be Kyle Korver. Consistent 3 point threat.

Picked a great time to lose. Now we have three games that are all absolute MUSTS to win or we end up 5th. Portland and Phoenix are always tricky for us and we're long overdue at home. Milwaukee on the road. There's at least one defeat there if not more.

I think they can pull off all 3. Honestly I am kind of glad to see them in this spot to see how they respond. If anything we can get 2 of the 3. Memphis and LAC play each other tonight.

Someone's being a negative nancy. If the Clippers win tonight, we'll be fine. Portland and Phoenix are coming here, they have their trips for Vegas planned, and just want to come here, take their medicine, and leave. Milwaukee is the big one. We will need to beat Milwaukee on the road on the 2nd of a back to back. They are locked into the 8 seed so hopefully they will rest their starters that night.

Having the tie-breaker over both LA and Memphis is looking pretty huge right about now...

the nuggets biggest problem in the playoffs will be finding a consistent hot hand to keep them in and close out games.
the deeper they go the more important it will be. you know Ty Lawson is going to set up his teammates and get his. but he's not an elite scorer and they will need someone to put up buckets on a consistent basis and carry them at times.

can they do that against a tough defensive team in a 7 game series? we'll find out.

It was great to see Ty starting to look like he's in game shape and getting his quicks back. Several good spins and drives to the hoop. Twelve points, 10 assists, 4 boards, and 4 steals. Another explosive game for Fournier, too. Twenty-four points on 8-12 shooting, 4 boards, 4 assists, and 3 steals. This team is so much fun to watch.

That game wasnt good for the heart... just one more now, i want no part of Memphis. Hopefully we don't fall victim to the George Karl hoodoo against crap teams against PHX wednesday now. Ideally we win and Houston stays 6th, we're a good matchup with them i feel. They turn it over like nobodys business and wont try dragging us into a halfcourt slugfest.

Agree. If Houston wins and Golden State loses tonight, Houston has 6th locked up since they have the tiebreaker. Right now Houston taking a dump against Phoenix and GS playing the Spurs and it just started.

Great. PHX in a bit of form for Wednesday then. Mind you, knowing Karl in those kind of games, i'd be just as worried if they were on a 9 game losing streak

It looks like it's going to be Golden State which worries me. I'd rather play Houston. The Warriors back court of Curry and Thompson are some shootin fools and the Nugz don't particularly defend the 3 very well.

See last nights lineup for the spurs? Still doubt it? No duncan no Parker no ginobili no Diaw no Kawhi. That's their 5 best players all sitting in a game that could decide a seed.

Pop doesn't care about seeds.

As a Denver native with previous copious experience watching the buttNuggets, I can assure you all this is what will happen:

They'll choke in the playoffs.

GS is about the worst match up for the Nuggs. especially if Faried isn't 100%.
Curry can light it up like a fiend.
