It has been a rough start to the season for the Denver Nuggets, who, despite a revamped roster and expected improvement from a collection of young players, have started the 2012-13 season with a mediocre 11-12 record.
Though the Nuggets haven’t had much team success early this season, individual players have certainly enjoyed successful starts. But with such a deep and talented roster, who has been the best in specific categories of the game?
Here I hand out awards to the top Nugget in each of four of the five regular-season league-wide awards. Rookie of the year was not included, as Evan Fournier is the only rookie to appear in a regular-season game thus far, and he has only done so in limited minutes.
All stats accurate as of December 13, 2012.
