Schedule Quirks

Hey Peter, Peter, you fat pumpkin eater
You know I kicks flavor just like Velveeta...

A few initial impressions of the just released 2009-2010 Denver Nuggets schedule:

-Prime time players. After the run to the WC Finals, the networks are all over the Nuggets' collective powder blue jocks with 22 national games. Compare this to a few years back when there would be no national games for the entire year. Somewhere, Kenny Satterfield is upset he missed his big day on TV.

-Back to back right off. The first two games out of the chute should give us a small peak at where the team is versus the two most formidable division foes. Opening night at The Can versus the Jazz and the next night at Portland. Even a few months out, I can already see the Blazers being the trendy pick.

-Red Bull required. With the networks discovery of a team that plays here in Colorado, inevitably will come the 2nd half of the double headers and 8:30 tips. Does Marv Alberts' wig stay on that late? Don't they have to flip off Hubie Brown's power at 10pm?

-Streaking. Just three games into the year the team embarks on their longest road trip of the year, a six game jaunt through most of the Eastern Conference. That trip worries me, as a trip of that length in February or March, when many teams are injury-riddled or simply playing out the season, is much more digestable. In November, everyone is fresh and has post-season aspirations. The team also has two other four-game trips and one five-game trip, yet their longest homestand is just four games. Who spammed the NBA schedulers email? Was that you Rex Chapman?

-Cuban Links. The Nugs make their only trip back to Dallas on March 29, when many of the hard feelings between the two teams and Mark Cuban and K-Mart will have long simmered.

-Ho ho ho. When I think of great Christmas cheer and memories, I always think of the tradition-riddled game on Christmas night between the Nuggets and Blazers. This game could have all the makings of the last trip in 09 to Portland, when the Nugs were thrashed.

-Really? Holy crap, is it really going to be 2010 soon? I always thought that cyborgs and giant alien caterpillars would be playing basketball by now.
