Ty Lawson is the engine that makes George Karl's offense go. With the help of high-energy guys like Iguodala and Kenneth Faried, the Nuggets are fifth in the West and climbing. Ty plays annoying defense and once he steals the rock, he's gone. The thin Denver air makes it hard for guys to keep up with him. Denver will go as far as Lawson takes them. Who thought we would be saying that after they traded Melo?
