    The Nuggets are for real

    Im surprised that I dont see people talk more about the Nuggets and their success so far. They are flying under the radar while creeping up the west standings. They are deep and great defensively, and leading the league in transition points. They also have a high-speed and very efficient small-ball style offense. Winners of 8 straight and tearing through opponents to include the latest impressive win against the Bulls. I think they're legitimate title contenders and I've really enjoyed watching their rise to legitimacy.

    Everyone already knew they were "legit."

    I think they're "for real" to an extent.

    I think they're the 4th best team in the West pretty easily. They'll beat whoever they play in round 1 assuming they don't fall to the 6th seed (they won't). Maybe they pull an upset over the Clippers or someone in the playoffs, but I still think they're a piece away from being able to upset the other 2 top teams.

    I figured they'd be better defensively than they have been, and still think they'll start playing better in that regard. But while they don't have that one star back court/wing player, they have great depth and a really cohesive unit.

    I like them a lot.

    You don't stand much of a shot in the NBA if you don't have a superstar.

    Depending on how they enter the playoffs, Ill reserve judgement. Same could be said for alot of teams actually.

    Forget superstar. The Nuggets don't even have an All-Star.

    Well they are loaded depth-wise, I would see them being a dark horse in the playoffs if they continue this run.

    All star game is a terrible way to judge players.

    They are good int he half court.

    And fast teams only have problems if they are not as good as the other team.

    Plenty of fast teams do well in the playoffs. Like the Spurs. Who are also good at the half court.

    Just do me a favor and name me one title team that won the title without an All-Star. I'll be waiting patiently.

    You can't be serious. You actually think the Nuggets could win the West?

    Well, a team has never won a title without a top five player or a top defense. They have neither, so will not win a title. Good spoiler team.

    But yes, you are stupid for bringing up the fact they have no all stars.

    KG would be perfect for that team. Too bad though that the Celtics are getting hot now and he would decline a trade to the Nuggets.
