The Nuggets gave Ty Lawson 48 million reasons to step up as a leader and become the man in Denver. 12 million reason per year for four years. So where is he? Has anybody seen Ty Lawson? Mr. Lawson, Mr. Ty Lawson to the white courtesy phone, please. 

Denver's almost 50 million dollar man was nearly invisible in the Nuggets first eight games, but last night he was nowhere to be found. The "star" point guard scored precisely not at all against the Heat last night at Pepsi Center. Zip, zero, nada, nothin'. He dropped not a single basket, not a floater, not a jumper, not so much as a layup. And it's not because he was too busy contributing in other areas. Lawson totalled one rebound, eight assists and two steals in 36 minutes on the court. and never got to the free-throw line. Of course, with a free-throw percentage of just over 50% on the season, getting to the line hasn't meant much for Ty.

Lawson may be little, but you shouldn't have to squint to see his impact on the floor.  The Nuggets are counting on him to captain the ship. Meanwhile the new guy, Andre Iguodala is the one demonstrating the leadership that Karl and Co. are looking for. Iggy's not just providing the defense that he was brought in for, he's scoring, dishing and setting up his team mates for success. They'll continue to fail, though, without their star playing like a star.

It's time for the Denver Nuggets to put out an A.P.B. on their star P.G.
