Nuggets Fall To Knicks… Not Ready Yet

This, folks, is why the Denver Nuggets will not win the NBA Championship this year.  How do you lose to the NY Knicks when you’re the second best team in the Western Conference and arguably the main threat to dethrone the Lakers in the West? Do you not bring your “A” game?  Were the Nuggets looking ahead to their next game against Boston (which it tomorrow btw)?   I can’t even name 5 guys on the Knicks’ squad.  Let me not crucify the Nuggets by themselves.  This happens to many teams, including the Lakers and even the Cavs.  But if you want to be a lock in for the NBA Finals, you have to bring that same intensity every single game. The Boston Celtics did it 2 years ago.  The Lakers did it last year.  There was no doubt that these teams were the best in the league the year they won.  They all had that swagger.  They had that “you can’t hold my jockstrap” attitude.  The Nuggest have the talent, but they’re missing that swag.  Don’t get that confused with being confident.  I’ve never seen a group of guys that are cockier than the Nuggs.  Even their poster child J.R. Smith thinks he could beat Michael Jordan at his prime.  But if these fellas want to make it and win the finals, they have to have beaten teams before they even step on the court…mentally. And that doesn’t mean being mental…
