Thoughts on Brian Shaw, Bernie Bickerstaff, NBA Draft "What Ifs"

Ross Martin

What's your biggest NBA draft "What if?"

On this week's Colorado Sports Guys, we delve into the questions that have vexed humanity for thousands upon thousands of years. Confounding even the greatest of scholars from ancient Greece to the enlightened age of the Renaissance. As simple riddle that plays throughout time and will forever more.

Simply put, what if the Nuggets selected Darko Milicic instead of Carmelo Anthony in the 2003 NBA Draft? I mean, come on. Epic poetry will be written about that subject long after Nate Timmons, Ross Martin and I are dead and buried. Another vexing question is why Brian Shaw would consider, even on the most pragmatic of levels, employing the man who did his best to destroy a Nuggets team he so painstakingly built just a few years before. I'm speaking, of course, about Josh McDaniels ... I mean ... Bernie Bickerstaff.

We also discuss how any comparison between Ed McCaffery and Wayne Chrebet is borderline offensive. It is, you know.
