I agree Denver is a deep young team and that will help them in a 66 game season.

Well, I did say "I'm sorry, but some of you are extremely foolish to think the Nuggets will finish in last place and that's putting it nicely." the day this thread was made after seeing the responses. Maybe a beating a dead horse by bring this up, but I'm actually interested if the people (I believe 3) who picked them to finish last are sticking to their guns.

The Nuggets, worst case, will be a 6th seed. They are built for the grueling season that just started, because they are 10 deep (11 when Wilson comes back). They will win a good portion of games in the regular season. Come playoff time, sure, they are not a threat, but I would expect 38-40 wins out of them for sure.

the one team i don't want to face in the first round is the celtics. they give us sooo many problems, and after watching the game on christmas, i'd fear to see them in a 4-5 or 3-6 matchup. for the east, my sleeper team is the wizards. i can see them cracking into the race towards the end and taking the 8th seed. in the west, my sleeper is the wolves.

The Nuggets will be a top 3 seed in the West. Book it (I hope you all remember to bow down to me at the end of the season ;)). I'm not being reactionary either, I predicted this before the season (in the round table predictions). Granted, I also think they'll be a first round casualty as well.

What people forget: a running team that goes 10 deep and plays in the high altitude of Denver = a lot of wins at home. Teams will leave Denver absolutely gassed. I'd hate to have that back to back to back with the first game being at Denver..
