2012 season is underway!


#Nuggets finished with first practice. Energy was good. Chandler (hip) and Stone (hip) were limited. McGee left early with illness.

God I'm pumped to see AI on the team. I didn't think we could get much better at running the floor, but AI is a beast at it. However, we need Gallo and Lawson to step up their 3-balls, if one or both can shoot in the high 40% range we can be deadly.

Ty started out the season shooting 29% from deep, but I think he got it up to around 36% by the end of the season. He has improved his shot all around and I expect a big season. If Gallo can stay heathy I have faith in him.

So excited to be finally talking hoops again.

I think we will be a much better defensive team this year, and we will need to be to be competitive in the West.

You know that the Lakers, Spurs, Grizzlies and Thunder will all be very strong defensively. It is time for the Nuggets to take that leap.

I think adding AI will make all the difference. He does so many things defensively, it will be hard for the whole team defense to not improve with his presence.

according to Lawson were the team to beat in the west this year. Not to sure about that statement but i defiantly think were going to surprise alot of teams this year.

Never the less its a good mentality for the team to have in the off season and going into the season.

AI9 isn't a superstar.

He's an all-star. He will remain an all-star more than likely. If he becomes an 'actual' superstar, that'd be beyond awesome. Like you said...in our system, he has a much better chance.

Lawson could become a superstar too, but right now, we gotta get him to become a consistent all-star.

Gallo has all-star potential. McGee has all-star potential, but still a ways to go, but we saw he could be dominate...as freakishly athletic as he is. Faried, I didn't see enough to see him taking the next step to an all-star, but with his work ethic, I could see it in the future.

Chandler has the ability to easily become the 6th man of the year. We have a very smart backup PG in Dre. Then we have a defensive star in Brewer off the bench. We have two other 7 footers on our bench that continue to improve.

Depth, depth and more depth.

Not to mention people are raving about the Frenchy. And Quincy has a HIGH ceiling, but a long ways to go.

Karl is known for developing crushes...and really favoring that or those guys. It's one of the knocks on him.

He has always said Kosta is our best big man. This off season is no different. Kosta is the best big man in camp he keeps saying.

He wants Javale off the bench with andre. And that makes me really, really mad.

Houshmazode

Yea, he is a good mod.

Koufos is probably our most consistent big man. Just because he hasn't had a lot of really good high scoring games doesn't mean he's not good. He's really solid defensively and rebounding on both sides of the ball. I'd rather have him starting ove Mozgov any day. He had another solid game last night.

McGee plays better with Miller because Miller throws up better passes to our big men and just works better with McGee than Lawson does currently. Just because McGee might not be starting doesn't mean he won't be getting a lot of minutes. He'll almost surely be getting more than Koufos and Mozgov regardless of his starting status.

Randolph played pretty good last night, I'm pretty excited to have him here. He doesn't get much attention but he's always pretty consistent. He had 8 pts, 7 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 blocks and 1 foul in 8 minutes last night. Going to go out on a limb and say he contributes more than Wilson Chandler. I'm guessing he'll play a couple months into the season and get hurt again.

Kosta is soft on defense. Mozzy uses his body more, even though after his injury last year, he became softer also.

I'll take Mozzy any day of the week. And McGee is by far our best big man and needs the most minutes, by far.

We don't have Tyson Chandler, so not sure where you are going with that one. :confused:

The Denver Post
Nuggets coach George Karl eyes practice this week at Pepsi Center. (John Leyba, The Denver Post)

So George, who are the surprises at camp?

"Three guys come to mind for me," said Nuggets coach George Karl, whose team practiced Thursday at Pepsi Center.

Karl named Kosta Koufos, the big man who has shown "consistency of being one of the top players on the court."

He mentioned Andre Iguodala, who's not really a surprise exactly, but has shown the coach a consistency of being the team's most powerful player on both ends of the court.

And the third?

"Probably the young kid Evan Fournier, from the standpoint of being good enough to challenge guys to play the right way."

Fournier, a 19-year old rookie guard, continues to catch the eye of his coach and the Frenchman will likely get a handful of minutes in Friday's preseason game at San Antonio.

"It's just his makeup right now - he's courageous and ambitious and he does it the right way," Karl said. "He's a sponge from the standpoint of trying to learn. And usually he doesn't make mistakes twice, which is unusual for rookies in this league. He hasn't been yelled at a lot."

Karl also said that Wilson Chandler, who is recovering from a hip injury, likely won't play in the next two preseason games.


I still hate the Fournier pick.

Fournier is a nice kid too. Got the privilege of meeting him while valeting DT. He gave us the infamous 'I Don't have any money on me right now, but i'll come back and tip you' line. Guess what? He represents about 10% of the people who actually come back and tip. I gained a lot of respect for him after that.

He's much taller than I expected as well.

10-11-2012, 07:47 PM
I didn't like the pick originally because I hate drafting foreign players. They are USUALLY soft, finess, floppers and i can't stand it. But I support them until they prove me otherwise. I still like Gallo and wear his jersey even though he flops embarrassingly bad sometimes. I wish he wouldn't but it is what it is.

Like I said Fornier looked as bad as possible in summer league, but I trust Karl if he said he's improving. I will reserve judgement until I see him play in a real NBA game. Hopefully he turns out to be the next Manu Ginobli. :D

I'm really hoping the flopping goes down significantly if they start fining people for it like they said they will. I mean, I don't like people losing their income, but it's pretty much the only way to get them to stop. It really is getting rediculous, and you don't want it to get like soccer. I actually like watching soccer, but sometimes I cringe at how bad they flop. If it was me I couldn't do it, I don't care if it helps you win, that's just flat out embarrassing....

Started the 2nd half good. McGee and Mozgov both fouled out in 17/22 minutes, I hope that doesn't become a habit. The whole team besides Gallo/McGee were terrible at free throws. Koufos made his one, everyone else that shot missed at least one and Brewer was 6-12. Work on those FTs Karl!

Length is why we took Fournier over Jenkins. At least that's what I believe. Fournier also really fits the attack the basket mentality Karl likes the team to have. The pick really shows Karl's faith in Gallo to hit his 3s this year or maybe Lawson

Same. He could prove me wrong, but since he's been in Denver I've seen almost no reason to resign. He's either been average or injured. The only reason I was happy about the resigning was because it proved all of those knicks fans who kept saying he was going to come running right back to them wrong.

I believe that if 2 of these 3 players live up to their contracts we are in good shape when you combine them with Faried, Lawson, and Iguodala. I'm just sceptical of chandler and to a smaller degree gallo's ability to develop from an good player to a great player. There is a lot of big contracts tied up to a lot of potential and I don't really like that.

I think it will be Chandler because he's the player that least fits into Karl's style imo.

Gallinari didn't live up to crap last year, yes he was inconsistent and hurt all the time. Supposedly he's become a team leader and become better at several things. Not buying it yet. I hate the Denver Post hyping him up because he made a few threes against OKC. Come on, regular season!

Nuggets offering Ty Lawson a $45 million extension?

By Royce Young | Blogger
October 24, 2012 1:05 pm ET

0 | Comment

Will Lawson be getting an offer from Denver soon? (Getty Images)

The deadline for contract extensions for the class of 2009 is a week away. While James Harden's situation has dominated headlines, there are a couple other very worthy players still waiting.

One absolutely being Ty Lawson.

The 24-year-old point guard has quietly risen to be one of the better point men in the league, averaging career-high numbers in points and assists per game last season. He definitely seems to fit into Denver's long-term construction plan, but the Nuggets need to lock him up.

And according to the Journal-Times, the word around the league is the Nuggets are willing to offer Lawson something in the $45-million range over four years.

Is that adequate? Too high? Too low? A max extension would be four years, $58 million, so it's definitely well under that. But compared to other elite point guards in the league, it seems to be a bargain, depending on your opinion of Lawson.

Chris Paul ($17.7 million per year) and Deron Williams ($17.1 million) are the highest-paid point guards in the league. After that, there's Russell Westbrook ($13.6 million), Derrick Rose ($16.4 million), Tony Parker ($12.5 million) and Rajon Rondo ($11 million).

Where does Lawson fit? Mike Conley got a five-year, $45-million deal. Is Lawson better than Conley? Would a four-year deal at that same number be about right for Lawson?

If the Nuggets choose not to extend Lawson now, he becomes a restricted free agent next summer and the market will determine his value. By all appearances, the Nuggets have no interest in letting Lawson get away. If this reported number is accurate, it should be enough.

Glad Quincy Miller is still on the roster. Maybe we'll be seeing Chandler and someone else traded for another PF?

Miller will probably go to D League and depending on Fourniers role he could find himself there too. I dont know of anyone on the trade block now, but we could pay attention to that considering how many pieces we can offer

I think we will see how the current squad gels. We don't need anymore turnover, we need time for this team to grow as a unit.

We could still use a shooter off the bench. Mozgov looks like he has no future here so I say trade him to Miami for James Jones.

I honestly don't really care for either, but I'd say KK. He is much more consistent and smarter.

I stopped watching in the 3rd quarter. Ugh. Koufos is still better than Mozgov, more clutch.

It's a preseason game. Who cares, we are still missing Chandler, a big piece of the puzzle.

Plus, we shot terribly. Especially from FT land. :brick:

You seem to care whenever it comes up. Koufos was better than Mozgov most of last season if you actually watched the games and came up big in crunch time.

Denver coach George Karl said the 7-foot Koufos has a slight edge over McGee and Timofey Mozgov in the competition for the starting center spot.

It almost seems like they don't work on free throws at all. Idk how you can be that bad when playing basketball is your job and you do it every day.

I agree with the new guy above me. I think the starting center spot and the rotation will be decided game to game. I don't like it all and it just shows that Mcgee was not worth the large sum of money he got. Worst thing the Nuggets have done is overpay overpay overpay.

I would have prefered to trade for Demarcus Cousins when he was apparently on the block. Lack of a low post game hurts us and affects the half court offense of this team which has been bad for back to back years. Lets just hope someone can step up in this department.

Lets not get angry over a pre season game. This team will be a very good one this up coming season. We have a lot of good pieces and we are going to give a lot of teams a lot of suprises this year. I hope that we can get a playoff series win because it has been so long and such a rare thing for this organisation.

Ummmm, I wasn't talking about KK. I was talking about your reaction to a PRESEASON game. :confused:

If I actually watched the games? Surely you are kidding. Hmmm, who makes the game day threads for the Nuggets? Who chats about the game in all of them? Who attends 10+ of the 42+ games for them? Oh yeah...that'd be me.

That quote means nothing. GK has had a man crush on KK from the get go. He says it every year in TC. Then, when the season rolls around, you see more of the other guys for the most part. As, it should be, and will likely be this season.

Javale deserves the most minutes, and will receive the most minutes. Dude has a crazy upside, and has definitely improved and will continue to improve.

Haha. Ain't that the truth. KD will get the 3rd most shot attempts.

And I actually do think we have a legit shot at #1. Without being a homer.

I never liked Martin. I always though he was extremely overrated. I think he will implode in OKC.

If we do end up making a trade this season I kind of hope it's Chandler and Gallinari for a good, reliable scorer.
