The sad tragedy of the Denver Nuggets continues. After losing in the first round to a lower-seeded team, the Nuggets fired Coach of the Year George Karl, lost Executive of the Year Masai Ujiri,  lost Vice-President of Basketball Operations Pete D’Alessandro, the Nuggets have lost their team captain Andre Iguodala.

Iguodala was the fourth-highest scorer and the second-highest scorer during the playoffs. He provided invaluable offensive versatility that could only be matched by his defensive prowess. Iggy dazzled many Warriors and Nuggets fans alike during the series with his high-flying dunks and three-point marksmanship.

It must be hard for Nuggets to endure another blow to their franchise. It’s sad to see a team get imploded in the course of just a couple months, but for the sake of competition, I hope Brian Shaw recaptures some of the Nuggets regular season dominance.

Conclusion: Loser

    The Nuggets are a loser because they aren’t paying a player with a 15.27 PER 12 million a year? Really? Lawson, Faried, Gallo, McGee and KK all had a lot better PER’s. And Chandler (listed as a shooting guard) had a PER of 16.61. Heck, Marreese Speights has a higher PER.

    I’m not convinced that Iggy’s plus’s equaled anywhere near the money people were throwing at him. He’ll be a good fit in GS but not the piece that makes them a contender.
