It is going to be both painful, and exciting to watch the ex-Knicks excel in Denver over the next few years.
More specifically, Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler are going to explode in Denver because they will have free-reign over the offense.
Nene, the Nuggets’ current number one scoring option is in the last year of his contract. He has expressed interested in getting a large contract, and once the Nuggets see the potential of Gallinari and Chandler, I think that they will let Nene walk.
After watching the Nuggets against TrailBlazers last night, I was very excited and happy for the careers that Chandler and Gallinari will have in Denver.
Gallinari finished the game with 30 points, and was being touted as the next Dirk.
Wilson Chandler pitched in with 20 points.
They played their hearts out for years in New York, and now they finally get to play to their full potential.
Gallinari will be able to post up down low, run the point-forward, as well as shoot the three.
Chandler will be able to take as many shots a night as he would like, and this will allow him to smoothen out his jump shot, and gain confidence.
In New York, we saw his shooting stroke go downhill as his name was mentioned in trade talk. Now that he is set in Denver for the rest of the season, his mind should be clear.
I am rooting for these guys to have great NBA careers, and hope that their skills mature in Denver!
