Mason Plumlee: I realize Canada has different economic conditions than Mexico, but the Raptors have proven that an NBA franchise is a solid investment. The Raptors are the most valuable pro sports team in Canada (worth around $2B), more than the Maple Leafs and Blue Jays. My guess is that with the right partner, solid infrastructure and a long-term commitment, a Mexico City franchise could be a giant. Some logistics related to taxes, customs and immigration would need to be sorted out with the government, but maybe that could be part of Trump’s secret tariff deal.
Denver often didn’t give itself a chance to see just how good of a look it could create. The Nuggets, according to the team’s internal data, had 41 possessions that featured a shot after one or zero passes. “There are some guys who shoot better off of passes and some guys who shoot better off the dribble, but to me it definitely matters (where the shots come from),” Nuggets center Mason Plumlee said. “To me, offensive rebounds to kickout 3-pointers are some of the best, or inside-out, where they double Joker and you get a standstill look. If you’re flying down the court in transition, maybe it’s a tougher shot. They are different.”
Millsap is averaging 15.2 points and 9.2 rebounds since Feb. 13, shooting 50 percent from the field and 38.5 percent from 3-point range during that stretch, all while making contributions on the other end that should make him a serious candidate for the NBA’s all-defensive team this season. The Nuggets have the NBA’s fifth-rated defense (106.5 points per 100 possessions) since the break, with Millsap serving as the catalyst. “He’s been so steady on both ends,” Nuggets center Mason Plumlee said. “He’s made plays on defense where it seems like he’s always causing problems, whether it’s deflections or taking big charges late in games. He’s rebounding at a high level. Obviously, the scoring and the offense has been drastically different since the All-Star break. He’s playing great, really taking us to another level, and it’s good timing.”
