'80s Highlights 

When the Nuggets drafted Carmelo Anthony, Denver fans had visions of Alex English. He was an unstoppable scorer in his day, always among the leaders in points. He was the first player to score at least 2,000 points in eight straight seasons and finished his career shooting 50 percent from the field. That's unheard of for a man his size. English's mid-range game was second to none. He had one of the sweetest touches ever. Alex is often considered to be the best scorer of the '80s.
