I think they really have a solid team!!

Lawson
Affalo
Gallo
Harrington
Nene

Andre Miller
Rudy
Hamilton/Brewer
Faried
Birdman/Mozgov

Well, they'll surely have the ability to shoot the three. I've seen rumors of the possibility of Smith and Chandler returning, but I'm not too sure of that. They're a playoff team, but not really a team that is likely to make it out of the second first round. For the playoffs, they'll have Chandler and Smith though.

I could see this team making it out of the first round in an upset. I'm expecting a big time season from Ty Lawson, and Miller's a solid guy to have off of the bench. Really surprised that Nene ended up re-signing, but it's surely a solid re-signing.

Very solid with Harrington at the four jacking 3s.

First round playoff losers, and thats if Lawson ends up being great and the bench does its job.

Thunder, Lakers, Mavs, Grizzlies, Clippers IMO will take the top 5 seeds so the 6-8 seeds should be up for grabs between the Nuggets, Blazers, Warriors, Spurs,

i see them continuing what they did last year but better because of the development of the young players the deepness of the bench and the new guys we brought in, ill say anywhere from 3-7

I definitely think Lawson. He was coming into his own last year. Really excited to see what he does this year.

I think 3-6 level with more likey 4 or 5.

I am trading Ray Ray for him in my fantasy league and I think I am hijacking him :p

7-8 seed at best, but I like Utah & Portland ahead of them.

8th seed at best, lottery team to be expected.

Not yet, but they say they're pretty close to an agreement.

Think the guy may have some sort of grudge against the Nugs from previous posts I've seen. Who cares though. Nothing to break a sweat over.

Wonder what they'll do with Wilson Chandler once he gets back from China.

im really hoping they do whatever they can to resign him, with him we would have another starting five on our bench like last year.


Miller
Rudy
Chandler/Hamilton
Farried/Harrington
Bird

coming off the bench aint to bad..

From what I'm seeing the starting 5 will be Lawson afflalo Gallo nene mozgov. But I bet they finish 6th.

Yeah I hope so too, always liked Denver. I'd then let Kmart and JR walk. Very solid team.

Maybe a 6th seed but I expect 7-8th

In times like these I like to bring out what Karl said post Melo trade


"All you f------ who think we won't be good anymore, f--- you,"-- George Karl

Anywhere from 3-6 range...at the very very least 7-8 but definitely a play-off contender, just because they don't have a "superstar" doesn't mean they can't win against one that does. It will be a process with them, they are extremely young but they are talented.

Deep team >>>>> team with 1 or 2 superstars and no bench.. 5-6 seed

7th behind (in no order) lakers, dallas, oklahoma, clippers, san antonio, memphis

Have they resigned Afflalo?

Not yet. But Ujiri just said that Afflalo said to him, "Hold a roster spot for me", so it sounds like it should happen soon.


Very solid with Harrington at the four jacking 3s.

While Karl does have the capacity to employ some stupid rotations (see: "Anthony Carter's 26 minutes"), he fortunately has already said that Mozgov will likely start. So the OP's starting 5 is probably a bit off. It should look more like this:

Ty
AAA
Gallo
Nene
Moz

That could be the biggest starting frontcourt in the league, and Gallo and Nene can run, too. Should be fun to see what they can do.

As for the guys in China, it's highly unlikely that K-Mart or JR will ever don Nuggets uniforms again. They were both unrestricted and expected to walk, anyhow.

Chandler on the other hand is restricted, an his agent has said he's been in regular talks with the Nuggets front office about extending. It remains unclear whether returning to Denver would be WC's first choice or not, but even if not, the Nuggs should be able to flip him for a good asset or two.

We're in good shape now.

If they can get another big man, maybe kris humphries, I can see them fighting for 8th seed. Andre Miller's teams usually are respectable.

7th seed or lower.

Clippers, Grizzlies, Lakers, Spurs, Mavericks, Thunder(In no order)

So they fill out the 7th or 8th seed and be a first round exit. Or a lottery team.

I think Ty and Gallo could have big years finally being the go to guys for an entire season. It'll be interesting to see im excited for the season to start. I predict anywhere from 5-8th seed. Any higher or lower would surprise me.

this is on the wrong thread?

I like how only the knicks fans think this, aside from the respectable realistic ones.

the nuggets have too many bigs and productive ones at that. also it is not millers team he will be backing ty up.

They havent signed Afflalo yet so at the moment a lottery team.
