Three and a half months ago the Denver Nuggets were the NBA’s giant in waiting, well on their way toward 57 wins and a chance to unleash 10-man hell on the Western Conference playoff bracket. This was before Danilo Gallinari tore up his knee, though, and Kenneth Faried sprained his ankle. Before George Karl and Masai Ujiri – the 2012-13 Coach and Executive of the Year – parted ways with the team. Before the team lost in the first round to the Golden State Warriors, a victorious squad that would somehow find enough cap space to sign the team’s best player, Andre Iguodala, to a massive free agent contract.

Veteran Nugget guard Andre Miller can’t be having fun watching it all go to ruin. Which is probably what inspired this blunt reply, at the 4:15 mark of this video, to Rick Fox’s musings about if 57 wins was “still out there for you guys?”

Watch:

For those that didn’t want to watch? Miller responds with “naw, you know that ain't gonna happen again.”

Super-harsh, but quite accurate. The Nuggets are attempting to rebuild on the fly while retaining Miller and hiring highly-regarded coach Brian Shaw, pictured above with Miller at the Las Vegas Summer League, but tying the franchise record for wins in a season is just not … well, it’s not going to happen again. At least not in 2013-14.
