Is Denver the reason the Nuggets can't attract free agents?

Time and again, the Denver Nuggets have failed to either recruit a star in free agency or convince their star to stay. They whiffed on free agency last year, and Carmelo Anthony couldn't wait to get out of the city (though, that probably says more about Anthony than it does the city). This begs the question: is it the team that fails to lure the stars, or does the city itself also...
