I THINK THE NUGGETS ARE TRYING TO FIND DIFFRENT KINDS OF WAYS TO WIN.THEY SHOULD STAYED WITH EARL BOYKINS UNTIL THE END OF THIS SEASON TO SEE HOW THE TEAM WILL DO WITH EARL AND IVERSON WHEN CARMELO GET BACK.I FEEL THEY JUMP THE GUN TO SOON!!!!!!!!!!

I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THE NUGGETS TRADED EARL BOYKINS.....WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!!!! EARL WAS ONE OF THE BEST AND HARD-WORKING PLAYERS THAT THEY HAD AND I DON'T SEE THAT IVERSON HAS DONE ANYTHING ALL THAT GREAT SINCE COMING TO DENVER, THEY HAVE MORE LOSSES THEN WINS SINCE IVERSON CAME...BIG MISTAKE BUT I WISH EARL THE BEST WITH HIS NEW TEAM, I ALWAYS SAID THAT I WOULD NOT BE A NUGGETS FAN IF EARL WAS TRADED SO I AM GOING TO HAVE A TOUGH TIME WATCHING THEM FROM NOW ON....

Trading Earl Boykins was the worst thing the Nuggets could do. He was a huge contributor when Smith and Anthony were suspended. He stepped up and had some nice games. I love the Nuggets organization, but they were a better team with Earl. People say he is dispensable because of size...i do NOT agree. He is a great player, he has shown that time and time again despite his size. So far I am not a huge fan of the Iverson-Miller trade. The fact that they traded Boykins makes it worse. They think that since they have Iverson there is no need for Earl. Iverson and Boykins made a quick backcourt and with Carmelo back soon, that could have benefited the team. Its the Nuggets loss, he is a great player.

Trading Earl Boykins was a bad idea. he stepped up and made shots when the Nuggets needed it the most. Him and Iverson made a good team and i think the nuggets would've been a dominating team with Boykins when Carmello got back. Should've waited for at least 10 more games before making any trading decisions.

You have made a bad deal that will only hurt the Nuggets chances of becoming a play off team. What were you thinking?

What were they thinking.... It takes more than 1 or 2 players to make a team.....I have watched the last games, and if it wasn't for Earl, they would of looked worse. Give Credit were Credit is Due.

GRRRRR!! Have they lost their minds. Earl was one of the best reasons to watch the nuggets - he could always get something started if they were down. He's an awesome player who never let his size be an issue. He will be missed.

Has the owner lost his mind or just plain stupid. The team is finally just about to go some where and the plug is pulled once again. What is this? A curse? Don't tell me that Blake is anything worth the trade of Boykins and by the way what happens when Iverson (one of Basket ball's Greats) gets tired. The most important thing about Boykins was his speed and together with Iverson they were beginning to run teams crazy. I see now what other pro NBA players mean when they say, "the nuggets can't go no where cause they don't stay together long enough to do anything". I feel sorry for the team and coach who I find it hard to believe really approved of suck a stupid decision.

I am a Bucks fan and I was just stunned that the Nuggets would do this. Not only is Boykins a really good player, Blake...shall we say has lost his shake.

I love the Nuggets for helping us out like this, maybe George Karl is just trying to help out his old team...LOL

Hey, maybe the Nuggets would like to trade Melo for Ruben Patterson?

Thanks Nuggets!(my new second favorite team)

whatever, early boykins wouldnt be able to guard the bigtime pg's like billups, kidd, etc.. this was a good move.. and on top of that boykins always threw up crazy shots.. blake uses his head in the game, boykins was messing up the rotation and iverson when iverson wanted to drive to the basket, mr. magoo could see that from a mile away.. why cant yall?
denver nuggets- boykins= a nba championship,
