4. Denver Nuggets
As the Golden State Warriors discovered in the playoffs, the Nuggets have an incredibly balanced and deep team. Even after losing Danilo Gallinari, the Nuggets still were able to bring Andre Miller, Corey Brewer, Anthony Randolph and JaVale McGee off the bench. Wilson Chandler was promoted to the starting lineup, but his contributions off the bench throughout the season were pivotal in getting the Nuggets to the playoffs.
Denver is an incredibly athletic team that loves to run, penetrate and draw fouls. They led the league in scoring and ranked third in free throw attempts. A team that is as dynamic and explosive as them needs a deep bench to sustain the effort, and that is exactly what they got.
Miller is old, Randolph has struggled and McGee is the reigning Shaqtin a Fool champ. There is a lot to gripe about this bench, but when they show up, they get their job done.
