Denver Nuggets Season Preview History
2010-2011 Denver Nuggets NBA Preview:
There's a lot of uncertainty heading into the season for the Denver Nuggets. Although Carmelo Anthony is still on the roster, the possibility of him being traded at any point in the near future is very real, leaving the team without its leading scorer from a year ago. The Nuggets were bounced from the playoffs by the Utah Jazz last season, and if they manage to retain Anthony, they can certainly make a run at the post-season once again.
While Anthony was the leader of the offense last season with 28.2 points a game, he is surrounded by a number of talented players. Veteran point guard Chauncey Billups is experienced at running an offense, but can also be a scoring threat as he averaged 19.5 points a game last season. Additionally, Kenyon Martin, Arron Afflalo and J.R. Smith are all reliable scorers.
The Nuggets have one of the best defensive big men in the NBA in center Chris Andersen. The 6-foot-10 Andersen averaged 1.9 blocks a game while bringing down 6.4 rebounds per contest. Joining Andersen off the bench is Ty Lawson, who is in his second year out of North Carolina and can definitely contribute if he stays healthy.
