Heading into the 2013 season, the Denver Nuggets have a deep and formidable roster, filled with talented but often underappreciated players. The Nuggets look like a dark-horse contender this year, which should be a refreshing change after a decade marked by a number of overrated Nuggets "stars."
The Nuggets franchise has enjoyed moderate success over its lifespan, but has yet to win an NBA title. While a number of storied teams remain banner-less after decades of play (the Indiana Pacers, Phoenix Suns and Orlando Magic are but a few), it is surprising that a multitude of talented Nuggets squads have failed to garner a single championship win.
Perhaps this lack of success can be attributed to the presence of some substantially overrated players who have been tagged as leaders of recent Nuggets rosters. Let's take a look at some recent Nuggets who have failed to live up to expectations.
