I will, eventually, have to reconsider my opinion that Paul Millsap low-key ruined the Nuggets when he signed there. There are several arguments that seem to disprove my assertion, one of them being that the Nuggets are one of the best teams in the league. But who knows how good they would be if they didn’t have Millsap? The defense rests, your honor.
Millsap did a lot of things tonight. A lot of those things were good, but you don’t get to see a lot of them (but you do get to see his half court shot). Truly, a highlight video of Millsap only scoring points does him a disservice. His value can be found in scoring, but it also found in his “intangibles”. Since intangibles are, by definition, not tangible, I can’t really describe them to you, but he has them. He has them and he brings them to the arena every night.
Just saying, intangibles don’t only have to be good. Players can have bad intangibles too. Michael Beasley is an example of a player with bad intangibles. Just saying.
