I don't get it. When I look at the roster I just don't see how they couldn't win it all. They're starting 5 doesn't seem to have any glaring weaknesses and they have a great bench (Wilson Chandler/Corey Brewer/Andre Miller....)

What are they missing? What trade/move could they make to put them over the top?

I read they just got Anthony Randolph too.

Randolph/McGee front court = dumbest front court in the NBA

IMO they need a pure scorer, a go-to guy. In the playoffs they played as a team and were great but when 1 or 2 weren't on them the whole team had to pick up the slack. i don't think a trade would help bc denver has good pieces in place but maybe a good signing?

The go-to-guy would be either Lawson or Gallo. Gallo must be step up in next season.

Adding Evan & Q Miller, Nuggets have the deepest SF bench..lol

They are probably locked for PO but may being swept in 1st rd.

They need a dominate scorer at either the 2 or 3 ... If Wilson chandler can turn on juggernaut mode and us Knicks fans know what that means they could be ok however that major star is needed

Gallo holds his own at the 3 in scoring.

if the games were called fairly and real defense was allowed, they would be missing nothing.

But since we got the stupid Star Calls all around the place, you WONT win withouth someone in the team that is dubed as star by the media.

they need a legit allstar/go to player, and a solid PF.

They Legit Need a Super Star. Just One. Thats All It Takes. Very Solid, Deep Team That Doesn't exactly have Many House-Hold Names. Just Missing 1 Super Star.

They have perfect pieces around them that would compliment a Star on a title team...but they do not have that centerpiece. I think Lawson can be a star and carry his fare share...but they need a Howard or LeBron or Wade or someone big like that to carry this team and show them the way. Sadly, in order to get this player...a lot of their pieces would have to be moved.

All Gallo, Lawson, Afflalo even AI Harrington can score 20+.

exactly!

That's the team you want around a #1. But they can't get a star with the Salary cap issue by signing and if they trade for one, they lose pieces

And that's what some people don't get. That is what separates the stars from the normal players. The true stars can do it consistently. JR Smith, Wilson Chandler, Gallo, for example, can do it sometimes.

Nuggets are nowhere close to competing for a NBA championship. They've built a nice core of young players, they are in no hurry to compete.
