Nuggets exercise team options on Gary Harris and Jusuf Nurkic

The Denver Nuggets are going to keep last year's rookies, Gary Harris and Jusuf Nurkic, on the roster next season.  Both players were likely easy decisions, despite drastically different rookie years.

Jameer Nelson is the right guy at the right time for the Denver Nuggets

There are many what-ifs when it comes to professional sports.
