Fascinating read - I just read this from the OP to current.
Ignoring all of the comments regarding other teams without meaning disrespect, but the OP was Twolves or Nuggets, here are my thoughts, feel free to ignore them. I'm a Nuggets fan and we are often ignored and disrespected.
Except for a very few serious fans, most of the posts demonstrate little or no knowledge of the Nuggets. Some actually admit it openly (but still comment anyway). It's OK, we had ZERO nationally televised games last year. Sitting in Wyoming, I see every Nuggets regular season game on TV, as well as about 50% of the Jazz, 25% of the Twolves and scattered games of other teams plus the nationally broadcast games. Obviously I am going to know the Nuggets better. I get that. What's hilarious is the posters who don't understand how little they know about other teams.
Somebody claimed the Twolves were deeper than the Nuggets - hardly. Feel free to argue the Twolves have better starters, but unless you watch the Nuggets closely you might not realize that even Nuggets fans (and staff) do not agree on who should be the starting center or the starting PF. Most agree on our starting SF but they also agree is backup is almost as good. SG goes three or four deep, with the backup having been in consideration for 6th man of the year award for part of last season. The Nuggets' second string might play the Nuggets' starters to some pretty close games. That is clearly not true of the Twolves.
Comparing Towns to Jokic is rather entertaining. Towns seems to be a center who plays a lot like a PF. He looks to have a tremendous upside, but like all young players, there's a risk he never reaches that projected upside (not betting against him though LOL). Jokic is being played a little at PF but there's not too much debate that he's better at center. It's comparing two guys with different styles - the better one is the one that fits your team's needs (or the one the homers already have).
Denver is considered by some to not be a desirable destination - and we've seen that from FAs but that is probably more to do with expectations and desire to contend for a ring. Denver and the area is a highly desired destination for people of wealth from all over the world. The ski slopes alone draw vast numbers of people. Colorado can boast of fantastic white water rafting, hunting, and the list goes on - hang gliding and similar sports have some fantastic opportunities. The list goes on.
The OP was "Best upcoming team. Twolves or Nuggets" - some forecasts say neither will make the playoffs this year. Probably most say the Twolves will make the playoffs this year. A few say the Nuggets will. Very few say both teams will make the playoffs.
But which is the "Best upcoming team"? Are we actually talking about 2016-17? Or are we talking for the next 3 years or the next 5 years? I suspect many of the posters were looking at this question with different viewpoints.
I'd say the Twolves have the best player, for this year. But we all know that one great player can get you into the playoffs but just barely. I'd bet on the Twolves making the playoffs this year, but I would not bet on them winning even one game in the playoffs.
If we are talking about 3 years from now, I will agree with some others that Denver needs an all-star or two. Developed in-house or FA or trade, and they will have a great team around those all-stars. That's the big "IF" for Denver. I will agree with some others that Minnesota needs a more balanced team in terms of quality role players and maybe one more all-star. That's the big "IF" for Minnesota.
"Best upcoming team" between these two - no idea, but I'll enjoy watching both!
