08:54 AM ET 12.15 | Flip Saunders had some curious thoughts about the Nuggets this week on the Minneapolis radio station, KFAN 100.3 FM. Asked about the Nuggets, Flip said, "Their biggest thing which hurt them was they got rid of Arron Afflalo, who could knock down 3s, gave them a toughness, and they brought in Andre Iguodala -- but he's really not a two, he's more of a three. So what happened is they don't have that solid two. I've never liked him as a two, I always thought he was better at a three. So they have a little bit of a logjam."

Flip you are absolutely right..........The Nuggets are always doing something boneheaded, hence, Iverson, Billiups, Melo, and Afflalo... what else is new?

That's the biggest change for the Nuggets this year is they gave up scorers and added more defense.I appreciate Afflalo in Orlando. He's a gamer. He's averaging 16 ppg and he plays hard nosed defense.

SHOWTIME!!! Did a Laker fan say defense? D'Antoni disagrees with you!!

When you sum this up are you saying that they should have more scoring at the two position? He scores enough points. With all the switching and rotating in todays games, players need to be able to guard multiple positions.
