NBA Playoffs 2012: How the Nuggets Can Win Game 7

Honestly, I thought the Los Angeles Lakers would go into the series against Denver and win 4-0 or 4-1, then go on to get eliminated by either Dallas or Oklahoma City in Round 2.

The Nuggets, however, have shown something throughout the season that makes me proud as an NBA fan.

Younger teams with the right mix of coaching and veteran players do not necessarily need star power to win games and hang close with the so-called best teams. In addition, there is much more to being a successful team than just having a Kobe Bryant on the roster (although it would be nice), or a trio of All-Star-caliber talents.

So, I have compiled a short list of things that have to happen for Denver to "shock" the world and knock off the heavily-favored Lakers in Game 7 of their first-round playoff series this Saturday.
