Denver is still lacking pure shooters(beside AI)...... If their bench can produce and they can play defense for an entire season, then I will make them a sure lock for the Finals next year...... Next year they will have the best starting lineup in basketball.
Without Kenyon Martin and team chemistry, they aren't gonna win the title this year.
I will say that the best teams in the West are..... Suns, Nuggets, Spurs and Mavericks..... Clippers were in the middle, but might fall to the bottom of the West. Rockets will stay in the middle of the pack, never winning the games that count, but beating up the Kings, Warriors, Lakers, Timberwolves and every team in the East.
I say around 55-60 wins this year.

Think about it though ..Nuggets have a run and gun offense that is gonna benefit AI big time so i dont think passin will b an issue for the AI haters...Run the lanes if u want the ball its simple as that ..end of story
This summer KG will be in diff uni most def...Mcfail had his chance to get AI in the MInne uni and blew his chances...so KG it out ......Unless....He can b reunited with Starbury i think hed stay but thats about it.
I don't think Melo and Iverson will gel well at all. Everyone thinks "the more scorers the better!", which usually can't hurt. In this case it might though. Two heads are better than one, but two big heads aren't. I predict only a slight increase in games won for Denver this season (52-55).
AI and Melo will be very fun to watch, 2 of my favorite stars. But this sucks if you're a fan of a team in the West, now we have 7 teams in the West that are better than ANY team in the East (except Detroit maybe).
I think they complement each other perfectly. Melo doesn't need the ball in his hands 100% of the time to be effective, he can run pick and rolls and come off screens. This is a smart deal and it will work. Unlike in NJ, where RJ and VC are basically the same player, these guys take different routes to scoring and will work together incredibly
That had to be the dumbest thing in the world unless they have plan to trade for another point...
I like Earl Boykins but they cant be serious? Iverson at the point thats hilarious... Jr Smith just as ridiculous...
Will AI run the point or you thing Karl with put him at the SG giving him more or a "green light" role? Since they traded A.miller I think most likely he will be the point guard and have Jr at the 2 or......He can easily play the 2 and have earl at the 1..what do you guys think will happen with that situation?
