Denver, CO, United States (4E Sports) – Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson knows a lot of people will sleep on the Denver Nuggets after the team’s 36-46 performance last year.
Lawson pointed out the changes that the Nuggets went through.
The team lost George Karl as their coach and general manager Masai Ujiri went to Toronto, following a 57-win performance in the 2012-13 season.
They also lost Andre Igoudala, a major contributor for the team both in offense and defense.
Injuries also plagued the Nuggets as a number of key contributors went out one-by-one.
Danilo Gallinari who was an offensive weapon for the Nuggets missed the season with a torn ACL.
Javale McGee fractured his left foot and was out for the Nuggets after playing five games.
Nate Robinson, J.J Hickson, and Wilson Chandler were also side-lined because of their health issues and injuries.
Lawson believes that once they are healthy, their depth will be a threat for all the teams they will face.
The 5-foot-11 point guard also shared with the NBA that he and Kenneth Faried’s offensive and defensive work from last season will help them this year.
The Nuggets will try to bounce back after missing the playoffs last year, especially after adding another versatile player in Arron Afflalo.
