With a deeper team, including players like Andre Iguodala, Lawson believes his team is more dangerous.credit: bleacherreport.net When it became clear that Carmelo Anthony was going to leave the Denver Nuggets in free agency, the team dealt him to the New York Knicks. Denver certainly got a great return, netting Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Ray Felton, and Timofey Mozgov. Felton is the only one of the group that is not still on the roster, but he was traded for Andre Miller, who has been an important piece. The trade still provides a huge foundation for their team today, and many see the Nuggets as one of the deepest teams in the league. Ty Lawson, the team’s point guard, believes that Denver is actually more dangerous without Carmelo Anthony. Via the Denver Post: “We’ve gotten better on defense, but I think we’d still be the exact same at where we are. Melo brought the scoring aspect, but I think we’d be the same. … I think we’re a little more dangerous. You don’t know where our scoring is coming from. With Melo, everybody had their focus on him. With us, JaVale might step up. Gallo, Iguodala, we’ve got weapons all over the place.” The Nuggets are one of the few top teams that don’t fall into the “Super Team” category. In fact, they really lack anything resembling a superstar. They are led by a variety of good players, including Lawson, Andre Iguodala, Gallinari, Chandler, Miller, Mozgov, Kenneth Faried, and JaVale McGee. George Karl believes that this balanced attack can win a championship, and it sure would be something for a team without a true superstar to do so. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Ty Lawson: Nuggets Are “A Little More Dangerous” Without Melo appeared first on Pass The Pill.
