Next years starting lineup..


OK, not really but I wanted to share my thoughts on what would make a realistic and even better Nuggets team next year, I know most fans don't even want to think about next year right now as we head down the regular season stretch to the playoffs, but after watching the Nuggets play last night I could not help but marvel at Marc Gasols play, going 6-8 shooting and finishing with 17 pts, 7 rebounds, and 6 assist in a very competitive game until the 4th quarter when the Nuggets pushed into another gear to win big.   However I can't help but imagine what our Nuggets lineup next year would be if we somehow got a hold of Gasol, imagine Gasol-5, Nene-4, Melo-3, Affalo- 2 Billups- 1.  Not only would we have even more size and a true center with Gasol, but with Nene sliding to what he thinks is his natural position we would be more physical and our rebounding would be much better, for we rank somewhere around 20th this year.

 

Now, how would we get Marc Gasol?  And not only that, but who else thinks that he would upgrade or downgrade our team compared to that of the smaller lineup of Martin and Nene, not to mention what would we do with Kenyon if we ever made a deal like this?  I don't know how the other stiffs feel about this, but I honestly have a feeling that we need a guy like Marc Gasol, he truly seems like the perfect fit for us and I think with all the injuries Kenyon has had over his career, that he should maybe become a number one option off the bench, I am not sure how this would all work because of Kenyon's contract, or what we might have to give up for him so I wanted to ask the Denver Stiffs what they felt about this.
