Can a New CBA Help the Denver Nuggets be Contenders?

Your loyal and friendly Denver Nuggets bloggers here at Roundball Mining Company have not published anything of consequence regarding the current labor conflagration which now has the NBA on the brink of missing regular season games.  The fact of the matter is that the range of possibilities was so far reaching that any kind of analysis would have been complete speculation – not that there is anything wrong with that, this is a blog after all.  We have chosen to stay on the sidelines and patiently await some signs of movement in the negotiations.
