    Nuggets by position: Above Average? OR Below Average?

    Nuggets by position: Above Average? OR Below Average?

    I'm curious what position you guys think the Nuggets could improve on so please tell me where you think the teams players are as a group at each position. I'm only including the guys that play the most.

    C: KK/Mcgee: Above Average? OR Below Average?

    PF: Faried/Gallo: Above Average? OR Below Average?

    SF: Gallo/Brewer: Above Average? OR Below Average?

    SG: Iggy/Brewer: Above Average? OR Below Average?

    PG: TY/Miller: Above Average? OR Below Average?

    Going strictly by PER ratings the team would fall like this but PER ratings (15 being average) are not everything.

    C: Above Average
    PF: Above Average
    SF: Above Average
    SG: Below Average
    PG: Below Average

    In general for a team that has made the playoffs 9 years in a row, it's pretty easy to say every position has been above average but what we have lacked is elite players/teams.

    I think Wilson Chandler could improve our SG position to "Above average" simply by allowing flexibility between Iggy/Gallo/Chandler. Brewer being the gut that plays in spurts.

    Hamilton and Fournier could also help out in the SG.

    PG I think is above average but we could use a PG/SG who is a pure scorer.

    I wanted to qualify my previous statement IGGY (14.5) and TY (14.5) are both close to average in the PER ratings and Miller (15.3) is slightly above average.

    I understand your point but I'm looking at the present team. This team has a different make up than some of those past teams. I think the #7 or #8 seed would be a close to average to slightly better than average team in a 15 team conference.

    Right now I see Farried standing out the most often. I would put him above average. Gallo could be a top 5 SF in the west already so I would put him as better than average. KK has been pretty efficient so I'm leaning on saying he has been playing better than average.

    The last couple years I agree however Billups/melo and melo/AI were elite teams or at least had the potential to become elite but that potential was never realized thanks to coaching IMO.

    Here's a cool article by Denver Stiffs that goes beyond Gallo's per game numbers.
