At least Andre Miller is realistic about his team's chances next season.
The Denver Nuggets point guard joined the NBA TV broadcast team Tuesday to talk about the franchise's offseason -- which saw the firing of reigning Coach of the Year George Karl, the departure of reigning Executive of the Year Masai Ujiri for Toronto, major knee surgery for star forward Danilo Gallinari and the fleeing of their best player, Andre Iguodala, to the underdog that beat them in the first round of the playoffs, Golden State.

The Denver Nuggets have a much different look heading into the 2013-2014 season. They have lost Andre Iguodala via free agency and the team chose not to give George Karl a contract extension.
