I do have my doubts about the PG spot, but Billups is a vet and can run a team. Melo does make us a better scoring team, but that really wasn't our issue in the first place and we now we lose height and athletic ability. I would like to see what other pieces the Nuggets would throw in, but I have a really hard time seeing us improving a whole lot with this team. I think were going to stay about the same maybe move up a spot in the Eastern conference. We also lose draft picks and with that the chance at getting younger and more athletic.
We have another star who can on any given night change a game, but to win championships it's all about the role players and the other pieces in the starting lineup. I love Melo, Stat, and Landry, but we are missing a key spot man in the PG as I think Billups will do well for us this year, but he is old. We can't think he can run and gun in this system for a long time.
I think I'm getting ahead of myself as we don't even have Melo, but these are my thoughts and I don't disagree with anyone about this having to be done or the kind of attention this will attract from other stars. Still we are giving up good young talent that we won't be able to replace for a couple seasons due to us having no draft picks and it all depends on what kind of moves we can make next off season as well.
