“Denver should finish last in the Northwest and go back to the lottery, but I don’t think they’ll be that far behind Minnesota. … They’re still waiting to hit that home run in the draft but they’ve hit a bunch of singles and doubles, and those can add up. … Gallinari, Chandler, Faried could all be traded. The start to their season will dictate their activity. … If they’re going to make the playoffs, it’s because Mudiay made a gigantic jump—like a Most Improved Player type of jump.”
Therefore, they predict that if the Denver Nuggets fail to excel at the start of the season the management may look to just trade their veteran stars. Which in turn will blow up any chance of them competing in the near future.
Is this an interesting move for the Nuggets? It could have its benefits, but the benefits may not be worth more dismal attendance records and seeing more horrendous records at the end of the season. This team needs hope. This city needs hope, and trading their team after a rough start will just kill the hope and vibe of this team.
