Nuggets at a glance
K-Mart is an inside force on O; Marcus Camby ditto on D. The Nuggets don't need to worry about being muscled in the lane.
What they should worry about is that no one needs to push them around on the perimeter. Voshon Lenard is a sharpshooter and Melo is a streaky one. It's Andre Miller's job to find the hot one each night.
When everyone is hitting, Denver can beat anyone. You can figure out the rest.
|The starters: They'll definitely, positively be fun to watch.|
|PF||Kenyon Martin||Wait. Who's team is it? Or does it matter?||8|
|SF||Carmelo Anthony||After rocky summer, glad to be back on his team||8|
|C||Marcus Camby||Career-high starts netted big money. Do it again||7|
|SG||Voshon Lenard||Lights-out shooter will feast in K-Mart's presence||7|
|PG||Andre Miller||6.1 apg last season could jump higher leading that break||7|
|BENCH||Size (Nene), speed (Earl Boykins) and plenty of potential (Nikoloz Tskitishvili, Rodney White) give the Nuggets a glow when reserves come in.||7|
