    Kawhi is making the Nuggets look like a JV team.

    Denver's plan is to tank for a good first round opponent than get bounced in the 2nd round.

    Not surprising Denver gets blown out in Game 1. It was an emotionally exhausting series against the Jazz. They will settle down and play much better in Game 2. That said, their defense is just not good enough to stop Kawhi.

    The Rockets will probably lose big the first game against the Lakers too after an equally exhausting series against the Thunder.

    easy series for the clippers. Not only they are more talented and deep, but they are rested and finally healthy. I see this series a sweep or 4-1 at the best. Dallas offense was more of a challenge than this tired Denver team.

    Two of the nuggets best offensive players are Garbage defensively. The clippers are just too good on both ends.

    Lol Nuggets are build for the long run.

    They need another star, maybe Porter can grow into it.

    And more 3 and Ds. It's not that hard when you have Jokic and Murray as your core.

    Millsap and couple others have to go.

    Yeah, Millsap is done now. I think its hard to build a team around 2 guys that cant defend for their lifes, but maybe they can figure it out with enough 3 and D guys, or doing like dallas, trying to just outscore you.
    If Porter develops into an above average defender, i really like him for them, he is already elite at rebounding, but as it is right now, he is completely clueless on D.

    Harden is aging, Lebron is aging, Kawhi is restless and unpredictable.

    There is only really Luka rising. And GSW.

    I am not saying West is open but they can still be a Top 3-5 every year even if there is no title.

    I mean it's not like Denver has ever won anything. WCF is a success for them.

    oh yeah,, thats for sure, they will be a contender for years to come, not sure if really championship material, but a 50+ team most likely.

    Denver playing with more energy tonight, leading 12-2 to start the 1st Q.
