    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    Exactly. And the same can/should be said of the Nuggets last year (except for the fact that they weren't the favorite by most, if anyone, before the season). But this thread has shown multiple opinions otherwise. The latter certainly applies to both the Nuggets of last year and the Celtics of...

    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    Yep, but they need more depth than Braun and Watson. The front office needs to get to work.

    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    And for the love of God, Ant is a terrific player, but stop with the MJ comparisons and other hyperbole. He didn't carry the team tonight or, really in this series.

    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    Bingo on both. And as one who has noted both, let me just make my position clear: a champion is a champion; they beat the teams they play, and a champion should never have to apologize, or be discredited because "better" teams faltered before they could play them. The Nuggets were clearly the...

    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    Exactly. Haters gonna hate. Jokic was terrible from the 3 point line this playoffs, and it cost Denver. Stevie Wonder could see that. But he was great in almost every other way, including one of the best playoff performances of all time, if not the best, in game 5, but the supporting cast let...

    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    Everyone but tims4wins, sure. As for the juggernaut talk, I'm not sure where that came from. As a Nuggs fan, it certainly didn't come from me or any of my fellow friends. Hell. we never thought we'd see a single championship. I certainly didn't, and I'm grateful I did. The Nuggets are still...

    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    Hopefully you're consistent and will discredit a possible Celtics Championship this year, should it come to fruition, in the same manner. After all, 8 (without Butler), 4 (without Mitchell), 6, and either 3 or 5 is basically the same, no?

    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    This nails it. Last year they had health, and they also had more depth with Brown. This year, they are less healthy and have less depth. It's really that simple. There are lots of legit contenders in the NBA, and it will likely remain that way, but if Denver can improve their depth, they will...

    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    From last night's pool report: The Pool Report interview was conducted by Vinny Benedetto (Denver Gazette) with Crew Chief Marc Davis following tonight’s Timberwolves at Nuggets game. QUESTION: The item that was thrown onto the court in the first half, were the officials aware that...

    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    My Nuggets are in deep trouble. Minnesota just beat them up, literally and figuratively, all night. Granted, the officiating in the first half was terrible and favored the Wolves style of play, but the Nuggets made no adjustments for it. They needed to play more physical themselves on D and get...

    2024 Playoffs Western Conference First Round: (2) Denver Nuggets vs (7) LA Lakers

    Proof why he's the best player in the game. Even when he doesn't dominate, he still impacts everything and everyone else.

    2024 Playoffs Western Conference First Round: (2) Denver Nuggets vs (7) LA Lakers

    Definitely. Lakers didn't scare me at all. The TWolves do. Having said that, they played against each other in game 80, which was basically for the #1 seed, and the Nuggets beat them soundly. Denver still has the better matchups, but it's close.

    2024 Playoffs Western Conference First Round: (2) Denver Nuggets vs (7) LA Lakers

    It's both personnel and coaching. As Wade Boggs Chicken Dinner references above, Ham does have Gabe Vincent, who was really good against this same Denver team in the finals last year, at his disposal. He also could have played Reaves more instead of Dinwiddie, but nope. And he took Lebron out...

    2024 Playoffs Western Conference First Round: (2) Denver Nuggets vs (7) LA Lakers

    Yes. While all the points made repeatedly in this thread are true (the Nuggets being deeper, younger/more athletic, more clutch, etc.) are certainly true, Malone has clearly outcoached Ham over the past year, which has been a significant factor in winning the close games. When LA came out...
