    39

    So... Tha ESPN "Experts" predicted 39 wins for us, this flat out disgusts me.

    I can't wait till we prove tha WHOLE league wrong.

    Camby didn't win us 11 games last year. But, that's my humble opinion
    Let me know wat you guys think...


    Heres tha link.

    Yeah, I'd guess that even Nugs haters would deem that a foolishly low win prediction for Denver. That's ridiculous.

    Until I see us play below the level we did last season, I believe that we will win 50 again.

    I was at a loss to why all the NBA analysts seemed to be down on the Denver Nuggets. Giving up on Marcus Camby, a player that refashioned and resurrected his career while in Denver, couldn't be the only reason why the Nuggets are slated to win 11 fewer games than they did last year. A year in which the Nuggets lost a key player to a cancer scare, had a player return from micro-fracture surgery, a backcourt in disarray and a mercurial up and coming superstar.

    What I think the analyst are seeing is that Nuggets are slowly becoming the Denver 76'ers and they don't believe AI can make a team better, but with the passage of time the team will only become worse. This is totally a subjective view however as the analysts have a tendacy to use character issues to determine how good an athlete will be. Character issues can sometimes interfere with getting your game to the court but it doesn't determine who actually has game.

    However there are still some ginormous questions that still need to be answered before the opinion makers will be swayed. Can Nene' and Kenyon fill the void left by Marcus and can they continue to recover from injuries and illness? Can there finally be a decision who will play opposite of AI at the point guard position? Will JR and Linas continue there maturation and raise the level of their games. Will addition by subtraction, losing Marcus, Eduardo, Bobby Jones and Yakhouba help? Can the addition of more athleticism to the bench in the persons of Sonny Weems, Birdman and Balkman help make the Nuggets better defensively. And the biggest question of all, will Melo use his inspirational play in this summers Olympics as a springboard to superstardom?

    eman, I'm not sure I really understand - what exactly do you mean when you say the "Nuggets are slowly becoming the Denver 76'ers"?

    I understand the reference, but basically the usual rap on most of AI's Sixers teams is, "He took a crap team to the Finals", "He was the man on a crap team", etc. So what I was getting at was does he think the rest of the Nuggets besides AI are crap players?

    Yeah - and just fwiw, eman's been posting here a pretty long time now, and I don't think that's where he was going with that. But it's just what it looks like on the surface, to me at least, which is why I'd like a more detailed breakdown of what that means.
