That image in and of itself should tell you something - this 34 year-old guy did not become president of the Nuggets because of his abundant knowledge of and expertise in basketball. Daddy supposedly made his billions on his own, but it doesn't hurt that mommy is a Walton.
You can click on the Nuggets Group Topic on the right hand side of this blog, but I believe that I correctly analyzed the Nuggets season after they played just two game - read it here.
Kroenke's post-season analysis, as reported in the Denver Post - "Kroenke happy with Nuggets." I guess when you have boatloads of money, you can still find happiness in abject failure. A few comparisons:
Record 57W - 25L 36W - 46L
At Home 38W - 3L [Best in NBA] 22W - 19L
Conference 3rd of 15 11th of 15
Playoffs Yes No [first time in 10 years]
Kroenke gives the usual platitudes about how great the first year coach and the first year general manager did their jobs, that the team would likely have done much better if it had not been for injuries, and that sometimes you have to take some steps backward to move forward. Well, as I noted, they certainly did take the steps backward, and I can't see that there will be much forward movement for next season. At least there are a lot of former Nuggets participating in post season play this year - in fact, a team made of former Nuggets coached by Karl would likely have whooped this years Nugatory Nuggets. Let's hope Josh doesn't dismantle the Avalanche as he did the Nuggets.
