The Nuggets were a terrible defensive team when Marcus Camby, arguably the best defensive center in the league, was with the team. With Camby gone, the Nuggets are left with a huge defensive hole at center and only the likes of injury plagued Nene, inconsistent Steven Hunter and Chris Anderson in the middle. Allen Iverson and Carmelo Anthony will get their stats, but it is hard to imagine the Nuggets being able to squeeze into the playoffs this season. The Nuggets are averaging 110 points per simulation, but are allowing an astounding 113 points. If you are a fantasy owner of a point guard or small forward going against Denver remember to start them. AI and Carmelo excel at scoring 30+ on 50 percent shooting while allowing their defensive assignments to virtually match those numbers.
