Top 3 Favorite NBA Players From My Favorite NBA Team: Denver Nuggets

I don't think I have ever seen this done on here before, and if it has than I sincerely apologize. I just thought I'd post a forum about my 3 favorite players from the Denver Nuggets, and I'm also interested in seeing who you guys like on your respective teams.

1. Ty Lawson (Starting Point Guard) - Ty Lawson to me is an extremely exciting player. He is one of the fastest players in the league with a basketball, and he is a gifted finisher. He is only 5'11", so he is quite undersized for an NBA point guard, but he plays big and I love his style. He can create offense for himself and for other players on the team. He is a good scorer as he can finish around the rim, pull up for a mid-range jumper, and expand his range to behind the 3-Point line.

I think that recently Lawson was given the green light from Coach Carl to be the leader of this young Nuggets team. I have noticed that recently he has been scoring the basketball a lot more than usual, and the team has experienced nice success.

On a quick side note, he had a game last season where he drained 10 straight 3-Point shots, and finished 10-11 from behind the line. That was quite an impressive display of perimeter shooting from the young point guard.

2. Kenneth Faried (Starting Power Forward) - Faried is one unique prospect, that's for sure. Whenever I was covering the draft last year on this site, I was hoping and praying that Faried would end up on my Nuggets team and that wish came true. Faried is the perfect type of power forward for a young Nuggets team. He does everything well. He runs, he hustles, defends, rebounds, and looks pretty spiffy whenever he goes up above the rim for a slam.

The alley-oop tandem of Ty Lawson and Kenneth Faried is one of great entertainment. Faried is really thin, and he runs really well and really fast, so it just helps out because Lawson can throw up and oop from half-court and Faried can finish without difficulty. He was probably one of the biggest steals late in the first round last year and I love the guy to death.

3. Danilo Gallinari (Starting Small Forward) - Danilo Gallinari was my favorite player that we picked up from that Carmelo Anthony deal we made last season. Gallinari is young and extremely talented in all areas of the game. His game reminds me a lot of Larry Bird's in the case of similar play style. I am not saying Gallinari is or ever will be as good as Larry Bird, I just see similarities in their play-styles.

Gallinari is a very good scorer, and I think he will progress to be an All-Star scorer someday, and will drop 20+ PPG. He can shoot the ball well from the 3, drives to the hoop and finishes well around the rim. Teams don't like to foul him either because if he goes to the line he will shoot 80% or better from there.

He has a unique way of playing defense, and he is a pretty solid defender. He won't make any fancy defensive plays, but he can throw in a nice steal and or block whenever you need him to.

So overall, these guys are my three favorite players from the Nuggets. I look what all of these guys bring to the table, and I look forward to them being the future of our franchise.

What are your guys' opinion on the 3 players I selected from the Nuggets?

Who are your top 3 favorite players from your respective NBA teams?

LA Lakers

1) Kobe Bryant (Starting SG)...I Mean This One Need No Explanation!

2)Andrew Bynum (Starting C) Although he has shown signs of immaturity lately he is still a force to be reckoned with. hes in the top 3 C in the league. If he can stay healthy when kobe leaves he will be King of LA

3) Tie Ramon Sessions (PG) & Pau Gasol (PF) Ima stats type of person and i always noticed sessions even when he played for the bucks (averaged over 6 ast over 2 year span with milwaukee in just 27 minutes) so i knew he had star potential if he got the time...now that he is in LA he will be giving the minutes and opportunity to shine.
Pau on the other hand i payed no attention until he came to LA back in 08 but i fell in love with his game instantly because he complimented Kobe perfectly

Pistons

1. Jonas Jerebko, great energy 3/4

2. Will Bynum, needs more playing time, was hoping he'd get traded to a contender

3. Ben Wallace, first player to ever be undrafted and play in an all star game

Kings

1. Tyreke Evans- still banking on his potential to get a jump shot and become an elite player. he can make a mix tape on any given night

2.Boogie Cousins- what most people hate about Demarcus is what Kings fans love. Like his jab at Blake last week was awesome. Could be one of the best big man in the league soon.

3. Isiaih Thomas- the Hustlin Huskie is really hard not to like. 2nd best rookie behing Kyrie in my opinion. He has a ton of heart and can straight ball

Knicks

1. Carmelo Anthony- even when he started slow and got &$#%#&@! on by everyone, I stuck with my boy, top 5 NBA talent if he keeps up what he's done the past few weeks. Mike Woodson is the best thing that could have happen to him

2. Tyson Chandler- the NBA Defensive Player of the Year, changed the culture and brought defensive energy back into the Garden, the Knicks will shock the world come playoff time, mark my word

3. Iman Shumpert- I think he has Russell Westbrook/Dwyane Wade like potential, he has a crazy work ethic and could be the Westbrook to Melo's Durant.

Between Chandler/Shumpert/Jeffries/Woodson the Knicks will not have to worry on D, with Anthony/Stoudemire/Smith/Novak on O, they will drop buckets

“When I get on a treadmill or

“When I get on a treadmill or run the street or ride my bike or whatever it may be, I have so many different motivations,” he said. “Whether you are on the road or at home, old or young, I want to beat you no matter what it is, and I’ll find some way to get some type of advantage on you. So that is always going to exist in me no matter.

Pacers

This is though, because the whole team is likable, a far cry from the thug roster that we had 5 years ago:

1. Roy Hibbert-Just got the nod over Paul George. He has a special place in my heart after I wanted the Pacers to draft him...and they did. He has reached out to the fans, been an All-Star, and, despite his occasional disappearances, he is a cornerstone for our future

2. Paul George-This kid is just so exciting. He is so versatile, with his height, and his shooting, and his D, and his handles. He has a big future ahead of him, and, if he hadn't laid an egg on his last dunk, he would've run away with the dunk contest.

3. Dahntay Jones-This guy has been incredibly classy about the reduced role that he has had ever since he came to the team. He was a great player on the Nuggets, and now, he is like the 8th man, but he still comes out and brings it on D and on offense every night.

4. Darren Collison
5. Danny Granger
6. Lou Amundsen
7. Kryrylo Fesenko
8. David West
9. AJ Price
10. George Hill
11. Tyler Hansbrough
12. Lance Stephenson

Thunder

1. Westbrook-Even with all his turnovers and high volume of shots, he's still one of my favorite players to watch. I was a fan ever since he first started playing. I knew he would turn into an all star caliber player. He's one of the fastest players in the league, very explosive, a good rebounding guard, makes his free throws, can pass and of course score in different ways whether it's driving in to dunk on someone or sinking jumpers and 3s. He was my favorite player next to Ty Lawson (another player who I think is underrated potential all-star but I'm glad he's getting noticed now).

2. Tie between Harden/Ibaka-I love these types of players. One comes off the bench and gives you consistent and above average numbers every game. Harden would definitely be a starter on most other teams. It's a good strategic move for the Thunder though, to have him come off the bench.

If you love blocks like me you have to love Ibaka. I haven't been this excited about a shot-blocker since Ben Wallace in his prime and Mutombo back in the day. He can do so much more as well.

3. Durant-He is pretty good.

The Charlotte Bobcats may

The Charlotte Bobcats may lose their own first to the Chicago Bulls (top-12 protected), but also gain firsts from the Portland Trail Blazers (also top-12 protected) and Detroit Pistons (lottery protected).

But Garnett, Pierce and Terry

But Garnett, Pierce and Terry have been through the wars. They are still among the best in the business even at combined 106 years old. You do not hang around the NBA into your mid 30's in very important roles unless you know a little something about the game. These guys have forgotten things about basketball that Rondo hasn't learned yet. Of course they will lead.

More importantly, the players

More importantly, the players union has also spoken out about the matter, and it seems that some legal action against the rule has not been ruled out as a possibility, according to NBA Player Union president Billy Hunter

The Houston Rockets tied up

The Houston Rockets tied up one more piece of unfinished business on Saturday night, trading disgruntled Kevin Martin to the Oklahoma City Thunder in a deal that landed James Harden in Houston. The Rockets also send Jeremy Lamb and future draft considerations to Oklahoma City. The Thunder also send Cole Aldrich, Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward to Houston in the trade.op7096786

The onus is now on Harden to

The onus is now on Harden to prove that he is a max player. He’s a good player, yes, and until he choked in the NBA Finals last season he was quite a force for the Thunder. The reality, however, is that Harden is not currently a max player, and unless he takes several steps forward this season his next contract will not reflect a maximum offer. Houston is the perfect place for him to prove he should get that kind of consideration, as the Rockets are team lacking veteran direction at the moment.m,gjfyj6r

“I’m still in Texas, so that’s cool,” Curry told HOOPSWORLD. “It’s a great organization and I’m extremely appreciative for this opportunity that Coach [Rick] Carlisle gave me, that Mark Cuban gave me, Donnie [Nelson] and everybody from top to bottom. It’s a great opportunity for me and I’m just extremely appreciative.”p[780979

“Competing from Jose and Kyle, to me and DeMar [DeRozan], to Amir [Johnson] and [Andrea] Bargnani, we are competing all the way across the board,” Anderson said. “It is a big difference [from last year] because guys are actually trying to [help] each other get better and want to play and prove that they can play.”

That’s going to be a couple

That’s going to be a couple of awfully tough checks to write for an owner whose team is not close to being in the mix of Western Conference contenders.
