07:17 AM ET 08.08 | What a difference a few months makes in Denver. The Nuggets validated everyone last season. Their staunchest supporters found them winning 57 regular season games. They turned into a monstrous team in the second half of the season and finally found their defensive stride. It looked like this would finally be the season they broke out of the first round. Whoops. ... Needs entering the offseason ... Let's see, let me get my checklist. General manager, coach, re-sign [Andre Iguodala], re-sign Corey Brewer , re-sign Timofey Mozgov, find anyone who can hit a jump shot, find any big that can stretch the floor, and a better backup point guard would be nice. Oh, hey, I guess they didn't need the GM because they had assistant GM Pete D'Alessandro. Oh, no, wait, he took the Kings job.

Not sure what the thinking was in Denver except maybe they were just tired of losing early in the playoffs and thought a slight shake up was needed.

Must have been big time personality clashes, otherwise a 57-winning team won't go through this drastic a change.

More like a very big shake up.

That's exactly how the Lakers are feeling without D12

The day the let Corey Brewer walk was the day I started hoping they'd miss the playoffs this year.

No wonder Melo wanted out.
