The Denver Nuggets are on the road this evening in the City of Brotherly Love to take on the 76ers, in what should be a good opening night game. Andre Iguodala is back in Philly after being involved in the blockbuster trade that sent him to Denver and sent Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson to Philadelphia. Iguodala had an up and down eight seasons with the Sixers, and never really garnered the Sixer faithful's trust during his tenure. But now he is starting anew with a young Nuggets team led by future hall of fame coach George Karl.
Both teams are relatively young and both also are looking to make some noise in their respective conferences. Denver has made some huge roster moves during the offseason, and brought in JaVale McGee from the Wizards, Danilo Gallinari from the Knicks and Iggy from the Sixers. Grouped with Ty Lawson at the point and Ken Faried at power forward, the Nuggets have a starting five that is young and will be looking to capture a spot in the playoffs come April.
