This was worht the shot for Denver as the team they had now was not going to go far intot he playoffs. Iverson is as tough as it gets and if he is healthy provides a great 1-2 scoring punch with 'Melo.

As much as I like the Iverson/'Melo combo, they're still missing a genuine big man presence down low, meaning they're still destined to fall to Phoenix or San Antonio in the playoffs. Marcus Camby and Nene won't cut it, and sending off Joe Smith may have just made that situation worse.
Now if they were to trade for a center before the trade deadline, then we can talk championship.

Eh, I can see the Nuggets (or any other team) winning a championship without a dominant center. The question, to me, is whether Carmelo and Iverson will be able to co-exist, and whether George Karl will be able to find enough shots for both of them.
One thing's for sure, it'll definitely be interesting to watch.
