Notes on the Arnovitz piece

As Charlie posted on Monday, ESPN.com’s Kevin Arnovitz has composed a fantastic dissection of the Denver Nuggets organization under Josh Kroenke. To echo what Charlie said, there’s a lot to digest.

Doing a traditional recap at this point is nothing but persnickety. Instead I will write something I was […]
