Of course, cap hits don't matter when you don't plan to spend that much money on this team anyway (which actually supports your point).

And I don't follow the Nuggets situation (so someone can correct me if this is wrong), but I'm pretty sure I heard recently that not only are the Nuggets allowed to spend to the cap, but they're actually well over the cap, with a luxury tax added on. Is this true? So the Avs are not even approaching the cap, but the Nuggets are millions over it, and Stan is even forking over luxury tax money to allow the Nuggets to be millions over it?

Great.
