nene is not getting any better. hes where hes at. Other than bigman depth, this nuggets team is solid. should be a very good year in the NW (well, at least watching the nuggs, jazz, blazers duke it out).

No idea what you're talking about, nene took large steps forward last year and stil has plenty room for improvement. It's not like he's 30+ years old.

Miller's a good fit, maybe just maybe it will allow Roy not to have to focus so much on running the offense and instead score.

But he has been in the league for seven years.

It's rare that guys keep getting leaps better after being in the league that long.

Because Roy scores on offball movement all the time right?

It's the fact Blazer fans don't feel Miller fits their system. They play an inside-out system. Miller is a point guard who doesn't have very much range. Personally I don't feel this makes them better, I think they'll end up where they ended up last year and possibly maybe a second seed if Denver drops or whatever reason. It could work out though, but to me I think it takes the ball out of Roy's hands a little more when he's playing PG or at least controlling the ball and Miller can't shoot as well as Blake.

As a two year deal it's just solid.

No idea how it will pan out. Chances are that Roy is so used to running things (and doing a great job), the J-less Miller will be useless next to Roy and be relegated to leading the second unit quickly.

But if it doesn't work they can get rid of that quickly, and imo they dodged a bullet by not signing Lee to a 50 million deal.
