Losing Linas Kleiza and Danthay Jones does not help.With a couple of losses they will go down the standings.

Remember the Hornets 07 08 season when they became the 2nd seed.

The following next year with no upgrades they fell to 7th.

That won't happen to the Nuggets.

They're much deeper and talented than the Hornets.

This year they could go all the way down to 5th.

Which is not bad. But won't have homecourt.

Nuggets need one more key addition from being the 08 09 Hornets team.
