Can Nuggets Win Title Without Superstar?
They are a team of collective stars without an elite player. That’s just fine with Karl.
“There are only about 10 or 11 superstars in the league,” he said before the game. “There are a lot of really good players and we have a lot of really good, young players. And it’s a team game. I don’t care what you say. You can talk superstar, you can talk special talent, great big guys, great guards, great point guards, at the end of the game, the champion we will crown in June is always the team that plays as a team and plays with the team mentality first and not talent first.
“We’re going to try to shock the world and become the first team to win a championship without a superstar — or without an All-Star.”
