Balkman to get more minutes behind Melo
 
http://www.denverpost.com/nuggets/ci_13448885

Should be interesting to see him play more perimeter, I think his jumper will be much better this season :cheers:

I just really hope he covers more perimiter players instead of playing backup pf as is most likely- I think he might be the best gaurd defender on the team-

Offensively he will have to hang around the basket a lot and be surrounded by shooters whenever possible but I think he should cover 1-3 and pick up a lot of junk and mismatches with the other teams 3rd perimiter defender

At pf I think his effort and skill on defense gets countered by such a lack of size where on the perimiter he has lockdown skills to go w the hustle

Balkman\Birdman off the bench will be quite the duo of hustle. Agree with El Gringo about defensively, Balkman is better suited guarding 2\3's than 4's.

Well he got zero last night. Let's see how much he gets tonight. I'm thinking none again cuz that's just how Karl works.

Laker fans here -- who are you guys going to sign off waivers?

I think if the Knicks waive him, you guys should pick up Larry Hughes.

With Billups and Karl running the show I think they can get something out of him -- and for free. He wouldn't have to handle the ball and you can run him off screens. The guy can still play.

You can keep JR Smiths offense on the bench and I don't think Hughes would be any worse than Dahntay Jones the hack artist and dirty player he is.

hughes taking over anthony carters minutes and responsibilities would make the team a lot better


but no, the nuggets are too cheap to pick up any more players it seems



Can tell you don't watch the nugs- there's not a whole lot of coming off screens for jumpshots- he would have to handle the ball to be effective for this team



Hughes would actually be a good fit for himself and the nugs- karl and the gms are just too stupid to recognize that the team still needs more- I'm not saying hughes is the perfect fit but if he were available for cheap it would be worth it for trying to win

Hughes would be a stupid pickup I think. Already got Billups\J.R\Lawson and Carter is going to get some minutes regardless. Plus Hughes played awful in preseason.

If we were going to go after anyone .. I seriously would hope Larry Hughes would be the answer.
