Tank early, tank often.
Has anyone been keeping track of them? What exactly is going on? Are they tanking already, or does Wittman just not have a clue what lineups he wants to play?
Not one player is playing more than 30 minutes a game (AJ Price leads them at 29.5), Beal is only at 21.5, Ariza at 20.5, Okafor at 20.5, Vesely at 21.5, etc. Seems like the guys that you'd expect to be getting the minutes aren't getting the minutes.

Wall is out. The starters seem to suck while their bench is carrying their weight.
After we dumped Ariza and Oak on them, my uncle bet me dinner at Gallatoires they will be better than us. I don't know what they're doing, but I know what I will be doing in a few months. I did think they could push for the 8th seed in the east though.
Ariza and Okafor are both dreadful offensive players and overpaid. I don't care how good Ryno or Lopez plays, the best offseason move was shipping them off for free. Heck, maybe even Demps best move so far.
Demps is a genius.
Demps is amazing. One of the bet talent evaluators in the league ( Vasquez, smith) and one of the best at making moves!!
"It’s important to us to bring in good people, people who can fit in the locker room and people you want to root and cheer for. People that want to win. We’re trying to build for the long haul.” -Dell Demps
Eric Gordon contract. Albatross around his neck.
"I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."
Let's hope the prosecutor cuts a deal with the defense!
Wal out and Nene out.... unfortunate. I was kinda rooting for them as I liked Ariza and Okafor (although I'm glad they are both gone lol)
I think his worst move was clearly the original CP3 trade, and then followed by wasting a 1st rounder on Jerryd Bayless. That pick ended up being #19. Kenneth Faried was picked at 22, and I remember us liking him around draft time.
Demps has been pretty great since landing here overall. Also based on how quickly he shipped out Bayless when he saw it wasn't going to work out, I think it's clear Demps is willing to admit he's made mistakes and will adjust accordingly. Good sign for the Eric Gordon situation. I don't think Dell will hesitate to ship him if there's a good deal out there and Gordon doesn't give him any reasons to be hopeful.
I'd be ok with 60 games if we're in the playoffs and he's healthy.
If he ends up being our Andrew Bynum, so be it. I'm all about winning in the playoffs, not having additional depth in the regular season. The Denver Nuggets will never win the championship as currently constructed no matter any regular season success.

Bradley Beal will be extremely streaky this year. Plus Wall and Nene are out. Someone told AJ Price he's a good 3pt shooter, and Jordan Crawford still thinks he's that other Jordan guy.
