Things have slowed down a bit around here. Figured I'd start a post sure to give us lots of things to argue about. Saw the power rankings on probasketballtalk. They ranked the nuggets 14th, after essentially all the west playoff teams except the suns.
14. Nuggets (18/1) Kenyon Martin is going to miss much of next season, and they need him to come back right for the playoffs to have any chance. They tried hard to get more size but missed on all their attempts. They did land Al Harrington and Sheldon Williams, but that's not the answer. They have Carmelo Anthony, they have Chauncey Billups. This is a good team. But they do not have the talent to beat the Lakers or the top of the West. Right now, they are what they are, good but not great.
I know some on here think the addition of Harrington improves the offense enough to more than make up for the loss of Kmart. If that's the case they are a high 50's win team and a two seed contender. If it's not the case, and barring a major trade, we could be looking at a high 40's win team. I'll guess at 50 wins and 5 to 7 seed barring a trade.
Let's see how long it takes for someone to call me an idiot that obviously keeps his head in a dark and smelly location.
