A Nuggets vs Heat Finals would be refreshing.

Now that they have Gary Harris playing well Denver is for real. They lacked an SG/SF who could defend and do basic things on offense.

Murray has turned into an elite scorer guard.Jokic has improved his defense. Jokic-Murray PnR is nearly unguardable with any type of defense you want to throw at them.

MPJ emergence has given them and 3rd scorer punch off the bench when they need it. Also they have an excelent 3 and D wing in Grant and a savy veteran in Milsap. Craig is a solid defender to throw at LBJ some minutes. Monte Morris has played pretty well as a backup PG.

Plus, they have showed legendary composture, chemistry and character by winning 6 elimination games.Their confidence is going to be even bigger next round and they have little to no pressure.

Lakers are still the favorites but this aint going to be a cake walk. If they want to advance they will have to earn it and play very well.

Nobody is not taking them seriously... there's just a ton of cheques to be cashed on the clippers.

Can we give Denver some damn love man? This team will not go down easily. This series with the Lakers is going to actually be a war. They have guys like Harris, Grant, Craig, Millsap, Porter to throw at LBJ and AD.

Jokic-Murray-Porter is going to give West teams nightmares. I see DAL and DEN ruling the West for the next decade.


Respect to the Mile High.


Or to put it another way:

Everyone should be talking about the Nuggets right now. They are by far the best team to watch in the league and are proving to be vastly more resilient than pretty much any of us thought. If you want to enjoy your life, talk Nuggets. 8-)

(Still expecting the Lakers to win the next series though.)
Hey: With what's going on in the world, my fuse is shorter than it used to be, and it's leading my lose my cool and then go on self-imposed breaks from things (such as RealGM). Please try to keep it civil, and I'll be looking to do the same.

I kmow many do not realize it,but we are still missing Barton. A guy some argued as recently as January was our 2nd best player and is easily our 2nd best perimeter defender. Rumors were that he is close to coming back to the bubble.
