Make no mistake, Josh has tremendous input in the makeup of the Nuggets roster. Unlike his dad, Josh has a close working relationship with Nuggets , Masai Ujiri. They are constantly working together, thinking of ways to improve roster, with the goal of winning an NBA title.
And the recent shakeup of the Avalanche front office has that same sweet smell. Stan Kroenke was content letting Pierre Lacroix be the caretaker of the franchise. And it worked for a while. But it hasn't worked recently. Josh hears what the fans are saying, he hears what the media is saying, he sees the empty seats---and he's decided to do something about those things.
Look, he's not a hockey guy, so naming himself President of the club doesn't exactly instill great confidence. But putting Joe Sakic in charge should. No, Capt. Joe probably doesn't have the experience necessary to run an operation. Not yet. But neither did John Elway when he took over the Broncos. And like Elway, Sakic knows his sport. He recognizes talent. He's smart. He has a great work ethic. And he wants to win. Now.
Worth a try? Hey, why not?
So, Josh is making moves. Aggressive moves. Thinking a bit out of the box. Because he wants to win.
With his parents' help, he already owns a number of teams and properties in Denver. But if these recent moves work, Josh Kroenke can own the town.
