NBA Power Rankings: #9 Denver Nuggets



By: David Kay

2008-09 Season Summary:
The Nuggets have to be happy with their 2008-09 season. They started the year with a volatile roster that was more likely to become the first team to ever fight each other on the court than come together and succeed. The obvious turning point of the season came less than a week in when the Nuggets traded Allen Iverson for Chauncey Billups (and some other pieces). After Chauncey took his spot on the roster the Nuggets gained some instant chemistry and floor leadership as they ran to a 54-win season and the second-best record in the Western Conference. They parlayed that second seed into a bid into the Western Conference Finals where the Nuggets were realistically just a notch or two below the Lakers.

    By far the most heavily tattoeed team in the NBA. there should be a inked up power rankings. calculating ink to flesh ratio, and then teams should be ranked accordingly. Between Melo and Birdman, this team runs away with it
