Default 2011 New look Nuggets - 04 Piston??

Looks like a very deep team with no superstar. Can they win it all?

I wouldn't count them out.

I just realize how crazy good they are considering they just lost their main superstar Melo.

The trade was a steal. Contenders no?

Detroit 2004; one of the best defensive teams of all-time.
Nuggets don't stand a chance, Detroit was completely overlooked that year.
They didn't even have a superstar, it's a perfect example of team playing collectively and winning a title with their defense.

And don't you think the new 2011 Nuggets are similar?

Defensively, not even remotely close.

The Pistons were an amazing defensive team, and the year after their title run their record was so good there were comparisons between the Bulls 72 game win record. They may be similar as in no single superstar, but playing style wise, not at all.

I'll definitely be rooting for them to upset the West.

Glad to see a TEAM concept play prospering.

Not at all. That Piston team had a great starting five, five specific players that playerd great together. THe Bench knew their roles, but they were bench, they had no illusions of being starters. And they played awesome defense.

This Denver team has great energy, can really score, but has less talent than that DEtroit team (it has no great starting five) and they go 10 deep with almost all of those 10 thinking they could/should start and expecting to do so in the future.

The Detroit team was older and full of seasoned veterans. This Denver team is very young with a lot of players at a level where you don't know 100% what they will become.

It's 100% NOTHING alike except neither team has an A list star.

it's ok, i wouldn't expect Purplechuck to understand, he's not a basketball fan, just a Heat fan. They didn't explain this in the fan rules.

I hate the comparison.. The style of play is too different..

The Pistons didn't play the same tempo as the current Nuggets and the Nuggets doesn't have good enough defense yet to be compared to the Pistons..

That doesn't mean the Nuggets can't be a great defensive team and comparable to the Pistons in a couple of years..
