They have not even played 20 games yet..lol


You are talking about "tanking"? That's a huge overreaction. Without Porter I think expectations have to be changed and Nuggets goal has to be simply making the playoffs, instead of getting to conference finals as was their goal at the start of the year.
Not to mention, Joker aint built that way and if you arnt 100% trying to win I cant see him be a willing participant. If Gordon looks to score more like he did in Orlando and Barton stays healthy Nuggets have enough firepower to help fill the gap for Porters scoring and finish around .500

Nuggets already have 3 max contract guys on their roster, so the Joker, Porter, Murray triumvirate with some other mid level salary pieces is going to have to be what they ride for the next 3 or 4 years. Only way to drastically change this roster is for them to trade one of those 3.
