It’s that time of year again, and after a long, strange offseason, the new incarnation of the Denver Nuggets officially begin preparation for the 2013-14 season this week. They’ll tip things off with media day today, training camp will run from the first through the fifth, and then they’ll open up the preseason on the road against the Lakers this Sunday. You can check out the full preseason schedule at Nuggets.com here.
