    I don't know, but any roster with Chris Paul can't be too bad

    They missed Pargo this year. He went off last year around this time. Carried them through a couple of games. This team is slower and more streaky than last year.

    Stojakovic has no business starting over Posey.. that's just absurd.

    One thing we have to start wondering is, are the Hornets really this bad, or are the Nuggets really this good? Could Denver be a legitimate contender after all?
    Denver is a very good team, but take into account that this is the weakest the west has been in quite some time. I don't see them beating the Lakers, so from that standpoint, they aren't real contenders.

    The Hornets just aren't as good as a lot of people thought from last year. They have a thin bench and Chandler has been banged up this year. I realized something was wrong when the Warriors beat them with a 7 man roster, with 4 of those players being 3 undrafted guys and a 19 year old rookie. And that was a game the Hornets were TRYING to win for (playoff positioning).

    just one more loss, and the NBA's most notoriously stingy owner of a team already up to its eyeballs in dept is going to be looking to sell off pieces for pennies on the dollar...

    And no, I know they would never sell off Paul. But David West is not out of the question.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I wonder if the Nuggets would have traded Camby if they could have known they would be in the second round of the playoffs...

    I know he cost alot of money but they might miss his experience come the next round..

    Andersen is giving them a lot of what Camby would; rebounds, blocks, and a defensive presence inside. Nene is having a good season too. Billups has the experience to lead them.

    I think when you look at his contract and his production, they're probably better off without him.

    I don't think they have enough to beat the Lakers, but I can see them beating the Mavs.

    very good points, I guess once Nene came back from his season ending injury when ever it was and the fact he's finally living up to the Hype of a late top ten pick..

    nene is better then camby. Billups is great point guard who can score, AI is great scorer that can play the point. This is what exactly karl said, and this is what transformed them into better team. They had AI, Melo two scorers. And JR Smith being wasted talent.

    Plus, dahntay jones & chris andersen were Very good free agent signings.
    They also got rid of the worst starter in the league anthony carter, he is bench player now.

    I do think that if any of Jazz, Rockets were in the other side playing new orleans/denver or dallas they would have made the western conference. San Antonio were disappointment.
