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.
