It makes sense that the Denver Nuggets have gotten off to a slow start this season. There's a new head coach, two of their best players are out with injuries and everyone is getting used to each other.
But beginning the year 1-3 isn't what Brian Shaw had in mind. The Nuggets' half-court offense is incredibly inconsistent, the defense is questionable at best in all areas and they are committing way too many turnovers.
It's quite the process since Shaw is trying just about every imaginable lineup combination. Still, Shaw needs to figure out who fits best in his system going forward.
Considering the Nuggets' rocky moments in the early going, there are several players who have underperformed significantly. However, others have picked up where they left off last season and some have even improved from a season ago.
