Default Chris Lofton Nuggets Summer Team

The Nuggets annouced their roster for this years summer team and the Guard from Tennessee was on that roster. Lofton was expected to go in the first or second round in the draft, but was dropped out of it because of his testicular cancer, which he has said now he is cancer-free.

If he played so well with cancer, imagine how good he can play without it by feeling better every play and just working even harder.

Not only will he be able to play better, but having Nene on the team who we all know had to go through testicular cancer, will help him to get through tough times. It's just someone he can relate to.

Any of you guys think he's going to make the Nuggets roster for next season?

I hope he does because this kid can shoot the three and having Sonny Weems as another rookie will be nice because these two seem like they can play with Melo and for the future of this franchise.

same kind of "we are already too good" arrogence- dont need a point gaurd to try out for the team, but how about another sg?

sure lofton has a slight chance to make the nba as a steve kerr like shooting specialist

but right now lofton sits at what? 8th-9th on the depth chart at sg so i cant see how he could even have a chance to make the roster

how could anyone with any peice of a brain think that to help this roster youd add an offensive gunner who is unable to really cover any position- we already have that-

what a joke it is on how good the brass sees this team- avoiding this draft and the nuggets holes in the roster will bite us in the butt eventually

for lofton i hope he plays in broomfield, who knows maybe this guy has a future as a spot up shooter- he is small for a 2 gaurd (6-2) and not a bigtime athlete, but may be as good of a natural shooter as college bball had- but to think that he makes this roster to me seems crazy- who does he beat out to make 2nd, 3rd, or 4th string?? ai, jr, kleiza, yakouba, b jones, sonny???

July 19: L.A. Lakers, 4:30 p.m.

I think if Lofton were to be on the Nuggets roster he would have to play at the point where many people predicted he will play because at 6'2" it'll be tough to go up against 6'6" or 6'8" shooting guards.

He can't handle taller guards?
Please note the Tennessee vs. Texas game in 06-07
He spanked Kevin Durant and called him his own.

Well he is still an option. A more thorough article tells that the Turkish team is his last resort. Making an NBA team is still his main goal and that he will be at Training Camps in that attempt before going to Turkey.
