They are just an energy-filled pack of munchkins that hustle their butts off for their coach.

And Ty Lawson is a heck of a player.

Count me impressed. Whoever plays them in the west is going to hate their life, especially if Denver has homecourt.

That's why they are a top-6 team in the league.

I love Denver.  They are probably my third favorite team in the West (behind San Antonio and Portland).

They have a potent mix of youth, veterans, , length, athleticism, and one of the best coaches out there in Karl.

Glad we won this game...DEN is a quality opponent.

Top 6? They aren't that good bro lol. Still they're a good team that i wouldn't wanna face in the playoffs if i could avoid it.

The only thing I dont like is Galinari as their centrepiece scorer. The rest is just fun to watch though.

George Karl likes guys who hustle.  If a player seems to be in his doghouse and not getting the minutes you think his talents deserve, there is a decent chance it's because the player doesn't play with the passion/energy that Karl wants from his team.

I think Denver is a bit more than a 'hustle monster'. They have the best depth at 1, 2, and 3 in the league. Lawson, Miller, Iggy, Gallo, Chandler, and Brewer are all starter caliber players. Iggy, Gallo, Chandler, and Brewer are all versatile multidimensional players.

Their frontline isn't going to hold up though I think. Faried should ideally be a 28 mpg backup 4 to a Garnett, Bosh, Gasol, or Duncan that can play either the 4 or 5. Koufos and McGee are not ideal starters by a long shot, for entirely different reasons.

No hate for the nuggets at all...like their roster and how coach Karl uses it...they play hard and certainly wouldn't go away tonight

fun to watch, but they play a street ball looking game ,   not a lot plays ,  just tons of effort from Young and very fast players.

Losing the elder statesman Iggy may wind up costing Denver a lot more games than just this  triple OT loss,to,Boston.

Denver  won't beat OKC or Spurs.  in  a series.

Only thing I don't like about Karl's coaching and use of roster is that he doesn't play McGee as much as I hoped. I thought, if he got his head straight, he could be something.
