The only real answer is that Denver needs MPJ to make a massive jump, and I mean massive. Problem is any FAs that will help, we have to massively overpay for or they are swooped up into big markets. Next year guys will flock to GS or Brooklyn. Guys will take minimum style deals to play, and it's just sooo hard to compete with that.
    Can we win anything with Jokic? Aside from his defensive frailties, he slows everything down which makes things much harder in transition. We have to pick the lock every time.

    "Asked Jerami Grant how much he wants to be a part of this team moving forward:

    "I'm definitely looking forward to it. We'll see. We'll see."

    Agreed he found his rhythm this postseason, credited his teammates for making it easy for him on the offensive end."

    He gone

    I’m just not sure what the Nuggets can do to make up for Jokic’s lack of athleticism on defense. I thought a springy 4 like Grant would help but with every team having a stretch 4 I’m not sure he can get over in time even when he’s not guarding the top scoring option.

    I think the bench needs to be revamped, like they need to play a completely different style of offense. A guy like Whiteside could be a great defensive option. We definitely need a true scorer though, Morris is steady but will rarely change a game. Craig can’t score. MPJ is hot and cold but he’s a rookie who will eventually make it into the starting lineup maybe even next season. Bol Bol really lacks court awareness but he has a tantalizing ceiling. Will Barton can be that guy and I think we really miss him right now. I really like Dozier but he isn’t a great scorer yet.

    Good season, but it's unfortunate to see the difference in treatment between big market teams and everyone else. Nobody wanted us in the finals, and it showed. We had our flaws, and they showed their ugly heads this series. The team has to play pretty much perfect, because we won't get the love of big market teams. I fear we didn't peak at the right time though. The team will look different, and I bet Grant joins the Lakers. LeBron openly admitted to getting Davis to LA, and the warriors are back. Nobody is saying I'll go to Denver. Unless MPJ takes a major major jump, I'm afraid we will continue to be the bride's maid and never the bride. As for FA, get the ideas of Giannis and other all stars out of the way. Even when we do get all star players like Millsap, they don't get a respectful whistle.
