"The Denver Nuggets might be in the best position roster-wise in the NBA"


  

          

Especially out of all of these young teams. If they don't do nothing stupid they can be contending on the big stage sooner rather than later.

While I'm not as big on Jokic as some other folks, he can play. He's just too slow footed to leave out there when teams go small.

Overpaying for Milsap was questionable. He's pretty much washed. But he does have a solid veteran presence.

They have a solid backcourt. Murray is on the cusp at 21 years old.

And I was dead wrong about Gary Harris pre-draft. He's turned into a solid NBA ballplayer. And an above average 2 guard.

I think Barton is more of a spark off the bench dude.

Like Lyles too as a versatile young forward that can shoot, handle and rebound.

Juan Hernangomez has size, youth, and can shoot.

Malik Beasley is alright.

But then you have Michael Porter. He's the wildcard. If he can stay healthy at 6'10 and the way he plays they'll become serious.

And a lowkey wildcard junior who might be less likely to stay healthy is Jarred Vanderbilt. With the way the league is going, a 6'9 forward who can handle, pass, defend, and be a vacuum on the glass while guarding 4 or 5 positions... he's definitely a piece if he can stay on the court.

We're obvi better than last year which we should be. But losing to a pretty iffy Lakers squad and barely squeaking by a NOP (sans AD) and the Bulls means there's a lot of work left to do. Garris and particularly Murray have had pretty uninspiring starts and need to shoot a lot better.

Disagree bigtime on Millsap. You overpay in free agency, and we was no exception, but his defense alone is worth tons. Our team defense is so much better this year and him being on the court to lead the charge is no coincidence.

Jokic is a superstar. It's that simple.

Ultimately I see us as a 4th/5th seed type team this year.

It's weird that Murray shoots it poorly to begin every season.

Thought he'd be a bench guy at best.

Really impressed with the team defense so far. It will be interesting when Barton and Thomas are healthy what they do rotation wise. I agree i thought Barton should play with the reserves. I don't think they should play Porter this year but we will see where they are come Dec/Jan. If they can keep up the D and minimize turnovers they can compete with anyone. Starting off with wins against the Dubs and clippers is nice. They definitely seemed to play down the Chicago, NOLA. They played down to Cleveland for the 1st quarter as well.

Also the new uniforms are dope:

Let them get acclimated. There's no need to rush either.

#4 at the lowest (assuming Rockets get their shit together, which they probably will).

They're young and on the come up. They're not ready, but they'll be ready eventually.

That's why I think if they stay steady and wait the Warriors out 2 or 3 years by not trying to accelerate the process and adding some Max contract guy, they can be right there challenging them in the playoffs.

he's actually the reason they're winning.

nuggs are the #3 defense right now. millsap's their best defensive player.

their defensive numbers were actually great last year when he was on the floor. it's just that he missed a ton of games.

Dude had more assists in the 4th than the Jazz had baskets, lol. Incidentally two centers have ever done that in a game: him and Wilt.

Concerns about aggressiveness and spacing remain (Jamal and Jokic were both getting passive to the point of passing up shots they had and they really NEED to take, which bodes poorly), but this was a good one to get.

And Plumdogg! Dude turned the tide. He hasn't been mentioned yet and has really grown into his role as the backup C. He's a reliably plus player when he's on the floor these days, which makes me grind my teeth less when thinking about the trade that brought him here and/or the contract we signed him to.

Jokic just continues to be able to do more and more and Torrey Craig is a player. Good squad. Can't wait for my guy Porter Jr. to get out there.
