he still is....thats why he went 4th,
You're missing the point..he was the clear cut #1 going into last season. Now, by most viewpoints, was a BIG reach at #4. To frame your argument better, you're ignoring how far his stock fell this year.
Why on earth would the nuggets regress? Bc they lost iguodala? They had the same roster the years before without him and were just as good.
No, they won more than they ever have in the 1 year they added Iggy to that squad.
They finally have a coach who will use Javale
Javale and Faried are a terrible combo together. Shaw has great potential as a coach, but you're overselling how great he is.
is a tremendous 5, add in andre miller,mozgov,evan fournier,jordan hamilton and anthony randolph and you have a deep and talented bench
38 year old and a player, still unsigned, who has been a bust? (Along with the bust randolph) you're talking about two high potential guys in hamilton and fournier (who's going to start btw) but are SECOND YEAR players.
Denver's point guards can't guard anyone and will have to rely on a defensive anchor to QB for them. That's what Iggy and Kufos used to do for them.
So yes. I don't think they win 50 games next year, which would be a regression.
