11 Bold Predictions

This Nuggets franchise is anything but predictable nowadays.

Fortunately, I read Denver Stiffs every day. So, as an informed reader, I give you 11 crystal ball snapshots into the season to be. Bank on em!

  1. Ty Lawson scores 50 in a game. He follows that up with a 3-for-11 dud.
  2. Nuggs lose more than they win in November. Trying to convert the Nuggets to a defensive-minded/half-court-setting offense will prove to be like converting Alabama to socialism. Shaw will discover that the personnel struggles with his system and he'll revert to a modified George Karl system.
  3. Denverites eat less tacos than they have in years.
  4. Hickson starts. The Nuggets lose. The fans boo and demand the Manimal. Shaw relents after 10 games and switches it up.
  5. Javale McGee turns out not to be Roy Hibbert. Once Shaw lets the team run more though, his play blossoms and he earns player of the month honors in February.
  6. Gallo and Chandler can't get healthy and can't stay healthy. Both of them look like shells of their potential selfs, scrapping their dribble-drive game for launching 3's. 32% of the time they look good.
  7. Andre Miller or Nate Robinson gets traded before Christmas.
  8. Q Miller, Fournier and Randolph split votes for most improved player, allowing Alec Burks to win the award going away.
  9. One unnamed Denver Nugget gets busted for smoking weed in a hotel room.
  10. The Pepsi Center sets the decibel world record on the night of Dec 23rd at the precise moment that Javale McGee spikes Andre Igoudala's baseline jumper back into his face.
  11. Nuggets finish season 45-37 and exit with a 5-game first-round loss to the Thunder. KD torches Hickson, Faried, McGee, Chandler, Arthur, Randolph, Gallinari, and Ty Lawson in order. Nate Timmons writes a brilliant summary of the Nuggets 2013-14 season and manages to use the words "disappointing" and "optimistic" in the same sentence.
