Default Team Needs( What more can Denver do to improve?)

As all Nuggets fan know, our defence is not exactly the best. Coach Karl has already tried to implement into the players' mindset that defence is of utmost importance. Although defense counts on a players' quick hands, reactions, shot blocking abilities, experience, athleticsim and so on, i like to think it is something more of a desire to defend. If you tried to follow your man tightly, contest every shot he puts up. THAT is defence. It is the willpower of whether you are able to challenge shots and to alter them.

We are also lacking a bit on the frontcourt department without another big man to compliment Camby. But, this should not be a problem when we have Nene back in the lineup.

What is more of a concern i guess is a lack of a quality point guard. We have Chucky Atkins and Anthony Carter. However, everyone knows that these two guys arent pure point guards( although i like their hustle ), their mentality is shoot first pass second. I dont see much difference between this two guys and a very poor man's iverson. We need someone who can defend and pass.

Lastly, Iverson and Melo score too much( this is a good point but can also be a bad point) We all know that Denver THRIVES on scoring, if we dont score we are doomed. im an Iverson fan, and i KNOW he's ability when it comes to scoring, he can drop 30 every night if he wants too. He's sharing the ball better now, but i still find that he has the room to be more unselfish. Melo on the other hand, does nothing much but score( if he has an off night he cant help much on other things ). If anyone of either 2 gets injured during the playoffs or a critical time, it would be very tough on Denver, this is the reason why im worried.
