2009 NBA Playoffs: (2) Denver vs. (7) New Orleans - Page 3
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).

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.
