Last week my buddy took me to the Golden State game and we sat in the second row below the basket. Killer seats, bad game!
The one major issue that I came out of that game with was we have NO half court game and if were not running were not wining. I think this is a big problem with Karl coached teams especially in the playoffs where every game becomes a half court game.
We do not have a player that can create his own shot. Gallo is probably the closest but he needs to learn to play with his back to the basket. With Gallo out all the guys just stood around waiting for something to happen and then when the clock would wind down we would chuck up a 3 pointer.
Is it time for the nuggets to make a move for a true scorer or a guy that can create his own shot? I think so.
A couple of moves that could help improve the nuggets:
Trade 1: with Atlanta
Mozgov + 7 million trade exception from Felton plus a 1st round pick for Josh Smith
Nene for Josh Smith
Trade 2: Golden State
Miller/Bird plus a pick for Monta Ellis
AAA + trade exception for Monta Ellis
or any other mix for Ellis.
Trade 3: Memphis
Hamilton/Bird for OJ Mayo
AAA for Mayo
Trade 4: Minnesota
Hamilton/Bird for Beasley
Some other mix for Beasley
I would like to get either Mayo, Smith, Ellis or Beasley as long as we keep TY, Gallo and Nene.
