Fit to be Ty-ed

You can be next in line and signed and still be writing rhymes and broke
You would rather have a Lexus? Or justice?
A dream? Or some substance?

Much like the past Nuggets' season, the team's forray into the NBA Draft went surprisingly well. They entered the draft with a mere 2nd round pick yet emerged with UNC point guard Ty Lawson after a swap with the T'Wolves at 17 in the first round.

The Nuggets brain trust reacted quickly to what they and a chorus of media-types and idiot bloggers deemed a top need for next year: a younger, offensive minded back up point guard.

In the weird world of the NBA, the Nugs sent their division mates a "future first round pick" for the ACC Player of the Year. Perhaps Minnesota will be using that pick next year, maybe in's the future, man, they might have transporter beams to set back door picks by then!

George Karl's Carolina Blue handprints were all over this one, as the Carolina connections that permeate the Hoops world is becoming something of a strange Skull & Bones' type brotherhood.

Meanwhile, they should back up the U-Haul to Lawson's Chapel Hill apartment, load up all the requsite college gear (especially those sandwhich makers; put some cherry pie filling in that bitch and damn skippy that ish is good) and get on the road to The Box State.

Do not stop at the Pepsi Center, do not go loft shopping for him, do not drop him off at a local gym. Proceed directly to Chauncey Billups' house. There Lawson can learn from Chauncey everything from breaking an NBA press to how to fold the towels in the guest bathroom. There's a damn good chance Lawson will be the backup point guard come Opening Night and be pressed into 20 minutes a game.

This is a good get for Denver.

I thought Ty was the 2nd best point in this draft, since personally think Flynn is a tad overrated.

I would have really liked to see them nab Blair with that 2nd rounder, although I'd imagine that would have made it near impossible to resign all their free agents.

Yep yep yep on Blair...he was right there for them. Different players, but let Linas go and keep Blair and bring in some off-guard/small forward journeyman. Maybe they feel they have a Blair type already in Balkman?

I think the major conern is the ACL trouble.

Denver seems to be looking a little more long term, whereas a team like San Antonio pretty much knows their championship window is rapidly closing and he can play right away but may be done in the league in a few years.

I agree in Kleiza though, I really think Balkman should be getting his minutes as a sub.

Balkman is in their plans next year. Dude hustles. He shouldve got more time in the LA series.

I like Blair, but I see him as a Robert Traylor type (minus the fat) and not the Barkley some make him out.
