Serious question: would the nuggets have been better if they had a real point guard
 
instead of Iverson. I mean, we're at the halfway point and they are no better now than they were without him and its very possible they drop out of the playoffs altogether.

They would be better with a real PG starting with AI in the backcourt.

Anthony Carter is a real point guard. Maybe he isn't a house hold name, but he does all the things that a real point guard does. He distributes the ball, shoots when open and is vocal while on the court. Iverson is the shooting guard, but yeah I think they would be alot better if they were able to keep Steve Blake.

They would be better off trading Carmelo for a true point guard and filling his spot with a forward who has an all-around game that includes defense and intelligence. You could put Stephen Hawking on the court with Carmelo, Iverson, JR SMith and Kenyon Martin, and they would still collectively be the dumbest team in basketball. Carmelo is also probably the league's most overrated player. They should try to trade him while people still actually give a **** about him. In two years, they won't.

Give Anthony Carter some props though. Never been a well acknowledged player during his career, never been more than a backup player and now at 33 has started all but 3 of the games he's played in this season. Currently averaging:

7.7PPG
3.10RPG
6.4APG
29.7MPG

Yeah Atkins isn't very reliable to lead a team. He can be decent at times but is very inconsistent and LOVE to just "chuck" stupid shots.
