Five things we learned from the Denver Nuggets preseason

  1. Emmanuel Mudiay’s best skill right now is his vision I’ll admit I didn’t know much about Mudiay before the Nuggets drafted him No. 7 overall this summer. He was a pure point guard that was physically gifted, that’s all I knew.

Nuggets' short-term issues have long-term solutions

Here are a few random observations from the first NBA game at American Airlines Center in almost six months after a tumultuous offseason.
