    Ok let me tell you something. I am not a Denver fan! But, this could be a huge improvement. Anyways, everyone get out of Melo’s way cuz’ he’s leading this team to victory. Forget going after Kidd and get him Gilbert Arenas, get Olowakandi, and Maggette to play the two, go after P.J to come off the bench as sixth man and teach young Nene maturity, pick up Speedy and someone like Derrick Coleman and you’ve got yourself a solid contender. So nugget fans tell Kiki to stop relicking over Kidd, and Mourning(we never know!) and build a young and already solid dynasty around mr. Melo!

    Luke — hell of team you put together. And what are you planning on paying them with? Monopoly money? Speedy, here is five hundred and Park Place. You have them signing SIX free agents. They are $18 million under the cap and Arenas wants $9 million of that. So you have $9 million to sign five of the top free agents — I don’t know why I just wasted my time explaining that — back to the real world. It’s looking more and more like Miller and Maggette or Miller and Olowakandi. I’d love to see Arenas and Maggette, but can Camby play center — I mean can he stay healthy? That is a hell of a team — Arenas, Maggette, Anthony, Nene, and Camby. I’m still a fan of Rodney White and though I don’t think they should sign Alonzo — their best team for next year (not the future) could be Arenas, White, Anthony, Nene, and Mourning w/ Camby off the bench

    Yes, Luke was a bit out of control, but my guess is he was poking fun at the fact that we still need a lot of help to be a contender next year.

    I agree that a solid two is all we can expect to sign this year, but I do think that we can really increase the team’s standing by doing that. I like Miller and Mourning. Miller is solid (watched him play 4 years in the WAC) and can get the job done. Mourning is a health risk I’m willing to take. He’s already pissed at Miami right now for not making him an offer yet, so I like our chances. Or, I’d be happy to resign Juwan and have him and Nene share the backcourt responsibilities again. Oh, hey, and Skita is 7’1 now and gained 25 pounds or so over the summer. I’ll be posting more about that soon…
