    I don't see him as nouget. He should be in a high profile city. But nougets got the best end of the deal. no doubt about it. Miller was nice player though.

    well with no one else on the roster they needed him.

    The suspensions just triggered the deal

    I think this is the best deal that the Sixers could have made. Andre Miller is a nice point guard, Joe Smith's contract is expiring, and they get two first round picks (though they will probably be in the later selections because Denver will make the playoffs). In all, Philly probably saved about $20 million.

    man me and Kami were talking before, imagine the lineup of Camby, KMart, Melo, JR and AI.

    Scary.

    K-Mart is done for the year, but I can see your point. I just don't see how a team is going to gameplan for the Nuggets now. If you double AI, he'll just dish it to Carmelo, and vice versa. If you try to run a zone, AI has the speed and quickness to get into the paint in a hurry, then if you try to collapse on him, he'll just dish it to Carmelo or someone else for an easy jumper. It's going to be some fun times in Denver.

    Denver by far got the better end of this deal. I was actually hoping that the Timberwolves would get him.

    From the first two games in his Denver career, AI is looking amazing. He's now looking to pass first instead of set himself up. Looks like he's realized that this is the best chance he has at winning a ring. He no longer has to be the whole damn show. But you gotta wonder if he'll revert back to his Philly ways when Melo, JR, and Camby get back.
