As I digress, the Nuggets are currently ranked the 11th best team in the league with Stein’s remarks being, “We didn't remember this at first, either, but the Iverson-and-Melo Nuggets were 10-1 in April. So maybe they were right to tweak minimally in the offseason, saving the spotlight for K-Mart's mountain of a comeback.”
So, my question is how probable is a, “Mountain of a comeback” for Kenyon Martin? On the one hand, everything I’m reading and hearing from inside sources is Kenyon Martin is on a warpath to prove he can be everything that he was before, but only this time in a different capacity and with a different style. The flip side to all the positive speculation about Kenyon is my memory of how self-promoting, volatile, and athletically explosive Kenyon Martin was prior to all the knee surgeries and I have to wonder if he can be the same player without what used to be physically nuclear explosiveness.
