The Denver Nuggets really have been a fun team to watch all season. I have definitely spent a lot of time streaming their games and listening to the radio call on altitude sports network.   This team is truly unique. They are young team with a lot of inexperience.  They seemed to rise to occasion and made it to the second round of the playoffs.  This is a huge step from not making the playoffs the previous year. Overall if you were to grade this young team they would have got a B.
 
Nikola Jokic
Your big star Nikola Jokic aka the joker is one of the best.  They run this point center inside outside offense. It’s a combination of what the bulls did with Joakim Noah and the early 90’s rockets with the Hakeem the dream Olajuwon His pick and roll partner Jamaal Murray can do stuff that Derrick rose certainly wished he could do.  Murray can actually shoot.  The joker can really put the ball on a string and thread the ball into passing lanes that are just incredible.  Also Jokic is a triple double machine and can get his shot whenever he wants.  Jokic managed to shoot almost 40 percent from three this post season.  He ranked 24 in the western conference this postseason.  

Jaamal Murray
Jamaal Murray played with a huge chip on his shoulder. He really improved his game from 2017 season ago to this season .  Murray was really overlooked by alot of teams.  He set out to prove all of them wrong.  He shot an amazing 36 percent from three. Murray ranks eighth in the postseason.  During the regular season Jamaal Murray was Mr big shot.   

Will Barton, Monte Morris, Malik Beasley OH MY
The Denver Nuggets back court depth is the best on the league. Its like hey come at you on waves. Monte Morris played 81 games this season. Most of the time he came off the bench and he averaged 24 minutes a games. Morris shot 49 percent from the field and 41 percent from three for an average 10.4 points per game. Will Barton a crafty veteran played 42 games averaging 11.5 points per game and shot 34 percent from three and 40 percent from the field. Not to mention you have Gary Harris Jr. Harris averaged 12 points per game and shot 39 percent from theee

Mason Plumlee and Paul Milsap
I like the nuggets big men. Paul Milsap and Mason Plumlee plays for the Mile High City. Plumlee and Misap is a dynamic duo that causes havoc for the opposition. I love how this team can go big with Nikola jokic and Plumlee and just attack opponents with the duel towers threat that reminds seasoned NBA fans of The Admiral and the Fundamental days.  Milsap a saavy veteran that adds leadership and is the glue for this team.

In conclusion this nuggets team has grown a lot from one season to the next.  This young team can age and just keep getting better and better
