Hmm lets see..

Signed Martin to an oversized deal
Signed Nene to an oversized deal
Traded away your best PG for a ball-hog
Traded away your second best PG for a second-rate PG with no scoring skill
After 4 years of people saying it, still no 3 point help
Waived a player who might have been fairly decent in the league (Hodge)

As far as I see it, Nuggets aren't going anywhere with the team they have now.

if those 2 teams (except Suns) are considered great by Duncan... the Bobcats would be in the playoffs...

You've contradicted yourself here.

You can't say "a loss is a loss" and then in the same post go on to explain how it's different.

You lose in 5? You were outclassed. Whether you lost 100-0 or 100-99 in every game. As I said, you can take "moral victories" from any loss, but in the end of the day it's still a loss. If you lose 80% of your games, how close they were is a moot point.

on the standings sheet its all the same. when a team loses by 1 its the same as a loss by 20. i agree. but it doesnt mean the teams are the same. team A that plays team C very competitively can be argued to be better than team B that loses to team C by a lot. now there are many other factors that need to be included but it does make a difference. it does mean something.

See, I understand what you're saying but I don't necessarily agree. Just because team a played team b tougher than team c did isn't an accurate reflection of who the better team is.

and at the same time to say that two teams who both lose to the same 3rd team, are equal, regardless of how they played or how much they lost by is wrong.

Nuggets, Suns, and Jazz are all good teams (all would beat Cavs).

Spurs just make it look easy.

Duncan's lying. they played 1 really great team, 1 very good team, and 2 pretty good teams.

i never said you did. but you disagreed with my statement about two teams losing to the same 3rd team. losses are not all the same.

Saying the Nuggets are better than the Jazz because they "played the Spurs tougher" (which is arguable, especially considering the Jazz beat the Spurs by 30 in game 3) is like saying the Jazz are better than the Mavs because Utah beat a GS team that handed Dallas their ass.

Its all about matchups. Dallas > Utah > Denver > GS

Utah was better than Denver this year. They won the division, swept the regular season series between the two teams, and were more consistent.

We'll see if that holds true next year.

Utah won more games than us.
they DESERVED to win more than us.

we started off a horrible 13-10 playing the league's easiest November schedule. then the idiotic mistakes by JR and Melo....followed by not really having Nene until February....and we finally meshed in March. it was a season of big highs and big lows.

If Denver or Utah was in the Eastern Conference either of them wouldve made the Finals without a doubt (we routinely DESTROY Cleveland and im sure Utah wouldve beaten them in a 7 game series too)
