I for one am extremely glad that J.R. Smith is a Nugget. He has enormous potential and is young enough to expect improvement out of. He was impressive from three point range, shooting 39% from the arch, and was the Nuggets 2nd leading scorer in preseason. Can you say steal of the summer?
As for Linas, I think that his game is coming around too! He has seemingly improved his ball handling skills and has shown a few times that he can finish in the lane. Like Smith, Linas has also shown that he can hit the trey ball. Both players are coming off productive training camps and preseason play and are looking to prove that they are the future for the Nuggets. I am glad to have both players on the Denver Nuggets and hope that their futures remain here in Denver for a long time.
