I know that you guys clinched a little while ago, and are now thinking about positioning and everything, but I must say i'm impressed that they even made the playoffs w/o Yao. I remember all the analysts, Stephen A. Smith, Marc Stein, Rick Bucher, Greg Anthony, Legler, Barkley, Kenny, etc etc.. all saying that a spot had just opened up for the Nuggets and they should thank Yao for getting injured. But the streak continued and they surprised everyone by not only making it, but even challenging for home court.
I don't know where they will be seeded or what their chances are of getting out of the first round, but regardless, making it into the playoff race this year despite of their big loss is an accomplishment in itself. It's just a testament to the fact that hard work, effort, unselfishness, and defense can win you ball games even when you're outmatched in terms of talent. Congrats and good luck in the playoffs.
