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. Obviously, there wasn't much good to talk about -- a shame, given the promise the team showed last season, when it finished third in the NBA's Western Conferen in the regular season -- and Miller said as much when asked by Rick Fox (just after the 4:00 mark below) whether it was feasible for Denver to match last year's 57-win total again this season. Miller's biting response of "Naw, you know that ain't gonna happen again," is a refreshing bit of honesty in a sport where most answers seem rehearsed. But it's also probably not a message new Nuggets coach Brian Shaw wants one of his veterans putting out there, and it will almost certainly be addressed, if it hasn't already.
