Raise your hand if before the season you said the Denver Nuggets would look like one of the top three or four teams in the Western Conference.
(Some might even say they look like the best.)
Now raise your other hand if you’re actually telling the truth.
This is being written prior to the Denver Nuggets’ major test of a home game against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, but regardless of what happens there, there is little doubt Denver appears well-coached by Mike Malone and possesses some true team chemistry.
The Nuggets also have some fine talent in the likes of center Nikola Jokic, forward Paul Millsap and guards Gary Harris and Jamal Murray.
And just wait until the Nuggets get totally healthy. Millsap and Harris recently joined top reserve Will Barton on the sidelines with injuries. (Barton has appeared in just two games thus far.)
On top of all that, the Nuggets are still awaiting the debuts of guard Isaiah Thomas and rookie forward Michael Porter Jr.
Still, even without many of those key rotation players, the Nuggets continue to find ways to win. How far can they actually go?
