The Denver Nuggets added a stud to their already-fleet stable, but do they have the horses to be one of the Western Conference's elite?
In this episode of Basketball by Association, NBA assistant editors Ethan Norof and Joel C. Cordes break down all the key roster losses and additions, discuss the biggest storylines to watch and set realistic expectations for the Nuggets.
Arron Afflalo and Al Harrington were valuable contributors last season, but was trading them for Andre Iguodala the final piece the Nuggets needed?
How good can "Iggy" be now that he doesn't have to carry a team's offense? How good can the Nuggets be now that they have a veteran leader and a legit star player?
What kind of development strides must youngsters like Ty Lawson, Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried and JaVale McGee make, and will George Karl have these guys playing even faster than last year?
Do the Nuggets have the league's deepest roster with Andre Miller, Wilson Chandler, Timofey Mozgoz, Corey Brewer and Anthony Randolph all available from the bench? Is this team a legit title contender or just another version of the "really good team" they've always been during the Karl era?
