I am sad to see Earl leave. Ninety-nine percent of the time, Earl gets our team fired up. He is so fun to watch. What were they thinking???? I hated to see Andre Miller go too as he was my favorite player. I would rather see Earl and Andre play for our team than win every game. To me winning isn't everything. Watching the players that we had grow togeter as a team was fun. With all of the new changes to the team, I don't know if I will be watching them as often (and I never miss a game).

NO!!! I seriously have no reason to go and watch the Nuggets anymore... Earl Boykins was the heart and soul of the Nuggets line up. Why couldnt they trade Camby or someone. Sure Camby's got a few feet on Boykins, but for what Boykins lacks in height he makes up in everything else. Everytime he was in, he always managed to get things going, whether he went in and scored 20 off the bench or, he started and got 12 assists. BAD MOVE!! enough said.

Maaaaan!!!!! Why does this all have to be about money! I really liked Boykins!!! I am very sad to see him leave, he was my favorite. I guess I will have to watch the Milwaulkee team to see him. How sad.

Yeah what were they thinking?? Boydins was the spark plug for the denver nuggets. No matter who they were playing and how far down they were, whenever Earl entered the game the crowed also entered with him. Not too many other players out there and get the fans going like him. But as we all know its about money and money talks. Its too bad the nuggets can keep players like Kmart who has done nothing for the team and let go of players like Miller and Boykins.

I totally agree Earl made the Nuggets. He was their clutch player and when you needed it he would put up the points. Plus Allen and Carmelo dont work well together but Earl, Carmelo, and the rest of the team do.

I really think they really cared about Earl. Everyone thought about Carmelo or Marcus. It seemed like he didn't get a lot of playing time. I think Micheal Redd liked the trade. Now he can give it to a man who can shoot, drive, and shoot free throws. And now he gets more playing time.
