Default Artest thinks Nuggets would've been better with him.

Quote:
Sacramento forward Ron Artest, who faces the Nuggets on Saturday for the first time since they considered acquiring him in February, said the Nuggets would be higher in the standings if he were with them. "(If) God put me in Denver, it's no question they would be a better team," Artest wrote in an e-mail Friday. But Artest wrote "the Kings didn't want to trade (him), so it was impossible for me to be a Nugget." But he joked, "The only way I was coming to Denver is if (forward Carmelo Anthony) was in the deal.
Kings coach Reggie Theus believes the Nuggets would be in better playoff position had they been able to trade for Artest. Even though I didn’t want him to go, if they had a chance to get Ron and they didn’t, shame on them because they would not be struggling in that eighth spot,’’ Theus told the Sacramento Bee for Saturday’s editions. “Just look at their lineup with Ron, and they would’ve been pretty tough to deal with.

Maybe they would've been better with him or maybe not..who knows, but thank god denver didin't give up Kleiza, Najera, or JR for him. Maybe he can come play for Denver next year, that is if he opt's out of his contract, which he says he doesn't plan on, but plans can always change.

Just imagine the lineup, the defense he would bring
But just like Krayzie sad thank god denver didn't give up Kleiza,Najera,Smith.

Smith has a lot of potential and we need his 3's he just needs more minutes,
Kleiza already proved he can play like a star,
Najera is a rebounding, hustler player and we will need his hustle if we come to the playoffs

I think we could be better if we change the coach.

Yeah I agree, the squad we have now is perfect, we just dont have the right people getting the right amount of minutes, sometimes I think Karl has brain damage.

His playbook consists of these plays:

Get fastbreak points at all cost
Let the talent of Iverson and Carmelo win the game



God I wish he would do something other than tell the team to "play defense" I mean, seriously cant he come up with something better than that? He never draws up any defensive schemes or offensive plays, he just complains that were not playing hard enough.
