Position Battles: What’s the Deal with Denver?
Things look rocky in the mountains, but let’s wait a while before passing judgment on the AI-‘Melo marriage.
The jury remains out on the great Allen Iverson–Carmelo Anthony experiment in Denver. Even if they are 2-5 together, seven games isn’t nearly enough time to determine if this union will work. However, assuming they are both healthy, the Nuggets will need to play better than .500 from here on out or this trade will look like a colossal failure. In this week’s Position Battles, we check in on Denver and assess the situation.
Jamaal Tinsley is suddenly gun shy; Chris Quinn is the forgotten man in Miami thanks to Eddie Jones; and LaMarcus Aldridge’s value could soar if Portland clears the decks for him this week.
