From the RMN

D'Antoni admitted telling the team of a perceived Nuggets preference but said no Denver players or coaches have said that.

"We've heard that, (from) the media," D'Antoni said. "You guys. . . . I wouldn't blame (the Nuggets). Between us and San Antonio, I'd choose us, too."
The reporter found that out after hearing this

"We've been hearing that the Nuggets are saying, 'If the Suns are first, we want to finish eighth. If they're seventh, we want to finish second,' " Suns center Jake Voskuhl said before Phoenix's 123-114 win against Denver on Monday night. at America West Arena. "I don't know why they would say that. I think we've proven throughout the year that we're a very good team. But we do have a lot of respect for the Nuggets."

Karl had a great response to this nonsense

"If (D'Antoni) can guarantee us a playoff spot, he can choose (whether the Nuggets face) San Antonio or Phoenix," Denver coach George Karl said. "I'll take either one."

So whom does Karl want to face?

"I'd prefer to play Seattle," Karl said of the team likely to be No. 3 and play No. 6. "That means we're moving up."
