Let the Regular Season Begin!

Enough talk about basketball. Finally, tonight, we get some action.

The Jazz tipoff 2008-2009 at home against the Nuggets at the old Energy Solutions Thunder Palace. It looks as if Deron will not play tonight (smart move), but that doesn't mean that our starting point guard won't be the best point guard on the floor. Don't forget that the Nuggets start the cagey veteran Anthony "I remember President" Carter. The big change for the Nuggets from last year is the loss of Camby and Najera. But they aren't completely lacking for interior defenders. They have this guy!

That's right, the Birdman is back! After being kicked out of the NBA for drug use, he's back. And what better team to join for a repeat drug offender than your 2008 Denver Nuggets.

If you can't tell, I'm not real high on the Nuggets this year. Last year the Nuggets were an abysmal defensive team that missed the playoffs by one game. This year, they'll be an even worse defensive team that will miss the playoffs by more than one game. Without Camby and Najera, they are a threat to give up 160 on any given night. The Jazz win tonight, even without Deron.

We own Denver every damn year. This season isn't going to be any different.

As the only contributor to TCG that lives in Colorado, I get to spend the night listening to Denver's announcers talk incessantly for 48 minutes about how Matt Harpring is the dirtiest player in the history of "sport," . . . and what is funny about it is that Harpring won't even be suited up.

When the only other option is to talk about how the Jazz have beat on you since 1985, you can understand where they're coming from.

Now that the "Jail Blazers" have cleaned house, the NBA needs a new refuge for miscreants. Thankfully, the Nuggets are stepping up to the plate.

Just for the record... Denver made the playoffs last year, but were sadly swept and their run of getting bounced in the first round is at a futile five years.

Thanks for the link!
