It is ending but the teams have roster issues, especially the nuggets.

WINNERS: The Denver Nuggets

Remember when the Heat had all that cap room to sign free agents? The Nuggets are basically like that, only now all kinds of teams will be on a course to shed payroll. Thereís not a system in the world in which you canít parlay tiny roster commitments into potential.

Yeah I am an occasional NBA fan so didn't really miss it but it will be good when we go into hibernation in February.

Looking forward to seeing how Hamilton and Faried do as rookies. Haven't been this excited about a Nuggets draft class in a long time. Faried is going to be a MONSTER.

Hope Denver signs Afflalo and Nene or someone comparable. Doubtful on the latter. Is going to be a challenge to meet the 70% salary floor requirement otherwise.

Faried was my favorite college player last year. I am so excited to see him go into beast mode soon.

I didn't get to watch him too much at Morehead State, but I loved him at the tourney and felt he was one of the most underrated players at the combine.

Guess, the cap floor is actually set at 85% for the first two seasons... so we will have to spend about $17 million to reach that floor.
