SOMETHING TO PONDER
It’s been a Cinderella run for the Denver Nuggets. But a lot of fairy tales have tragic undertones, and Denver’s certainly won’t end well.
The Lakers have the two best players in the series and their lethal offence is simply too much for the Nuggets to handle. And to make matters worse, LeBron is pissed off after receiving just 16 first-placed MVP votes, and he always steps things up at the business end of the playoffs anyway.
So on top of everything else, Denver can expect to receive the full wrath of King James.
