Ouch. This pathetic little fellow got left hanging something fierce last night. He somehow managed to keep his star-struck grin as Lebron pretended not to see him standing there with his hand outstretched in anticipation of some love from the MVP who was more interested in communing with his, uh, peers.
Get out to the polls tonight, Denver, and vote for your Denver Nuggets over the Detroit Pistons in a landslide.
It's the Nugs' home opener and hoo-boy do they need win. Beyond that, they need some swaggar. Like them, the Pistons come into tonight's game 0-3. They're the ideal prey at the ideal time for a Nuggets team that showed us on Saturday night in Miami that they can play with the league's best. Denver faded down the stretch and made some bonehead mistakes, but gave Lebron and his Heat all they could take. There were more positive signs than negative in that game.
If it comes together tonight, and the Nuggets win by ten or more, everyone in Nuggets Nation will feel just a little bit better.
And besides, no matter what happens at the polls today, about half of them will need something to smile about.
