Nene Could be Back... Thursday!

(Boulder-CO) Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post published this article this afternoon concerning Nene's comeback. Unbelievably, Nene participated in a full practice today, and could be seeing a few minutes tomorrow night against the Mavericks. It's a game we really need to win to jockey for playoff position and the emotion that Nene returning would bring to the Pepsi is inconceivable!

Imagine...

Being diagnosis with a malignant testicular tumor in the genesis of your first year back from a devastating injury the year before, going through a round of chemotherapy, and returning all in the same year!

Can you say, "Comeback Player of the Year?"

We need you, Big Brazil.

Go Nuggets!

I hope he does. Besides the obvious lift it will give the team, Nene was an absolute monster last year. Coming back now, with 12 games left, would be huge, if he's around 80% come playoff time, it makes the nuggets a much better team.

I just picked up tickets to the game this morning and now I just read this news on Nene. This is awesome! It's going to be crazy tonight at the Pepsi Center, especially if Nene gets some minutes.

Playoffs, here we come!!!!

Heh, I'm always trolling for Nuggets news.

You coming up to visit us in 333 at halftime, or should we meet somewhere else? Should be a fun game -- the Mavs played well against the Clippers, so even Dirk-less, the guys have gotta keep it together to get this win. At least we're at home and getting the boost of Nene's return -- that should be enough.

And yeah, I've been salivating over the Nene/Atkins pick-and-roll all year after the flashes they showed early. If he's got his hops back by Playoff time, we'll be in great shape. Chucky sees that play SO much better than either AI or Carter for whatever reason.

Cool, it'll be me and my friend Jack. You should see us -- we're in 7 and 8 of that section (it's only one row). Looking forward to it -- hopefully we'll be talking about how great the Nugs are doing rather than scratching our heads and trying to drown the confusion in booze.
