I think the nuggets are the only team that can play with the heat in the finals

Don't see Nuggets winning the West. Things slow down in the playoffs. Beating OKC in a regular season game is one thing...beating them over the course of 7 games (4 of them on the road...though that isn't set in stone) is going to be very difficult.

But, I like Denver. I just think teams will be able to slow them down in playoffs.

Enjoy Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley, Marcin Gortat, and the 16th pick in a crappy draft.

(plus, I think Cleveland might get this pick anyway)

LOL I'm not a Suns fan, I just found the pic funny.

(IIRC Cleveland gets the pick if the Lakers make the playoffs, they miss and the Suns keep the pick)
..draft picks are over-rated unless they are in the top 7.

Kobe Bryant at #13 says no.

Haha yes there are exceptions. Doubt lakers are losing sleep over not having their 1st rd pick.
Was arguing with nuggets fans who say the Nuggets win streak is way more impressive than the Heats win streak. Lol

I'm just guessing that the argument is that denver has less talented players on their team. I personally don't agree with that, but if they were both at the same amount of consecutive wins, then I would probably say that denvers run was more impressive.
Does Marshall Henderson have a shot in the NBA? Kinda like that kid. Kinda reminds me of Chris Herren though, hopefully that doesn't come true.

I think he does. I like him too. Every few years there's a guy that comes around who I feel will be an NBA player because he possesses an abundance of confidence & competitiveness that will overcome their lack of physical ability. The three guys in the last decade who I felt that way about were Steve Blake, Jared Dudley, and Greivis Vasquez. I feel the same way about Henderson. He's too dumb, stubborn, & competitive to know that he belongs in the D-League.

He has an NBA skill (shooting) that teams can use off of the bench. There's a place for him in the pick & roll heavy NBA, IMO.

Reminds me of Steph Curry and how he was an elite shooter but I thought he didn't have the body to play in the NBA. Turns out I was really wrong about Steph.

I was really wrong about Steph too, but to be fair he had PG skills that weren't really on display at Davidson, because he was rightfully their #1 scoring option by a wide margin. Steph doesn't have the body to play the SG, but he has some very good PG skills. That's what separates him from a guy like Fredette. If Henderson has that as well, he'll be a very good player.
