Kiszla: Why should Nikola Jokic remain loyal to Nuggets if team treats Tim Connelly like replaceable part?

When are fools like us ever going to learn? Trusting the Nuggets to do the right thing is an invitation to heartbreak.

The Kroenke way is to treat everyone — whether it’s front-office exec Tim Connelly, two-time MVP Nikola Jokic or fans who want to watch the team on television — as replaceable parts.

With a talented young team cursed by bad injury luck and unfulfilled potential facing a crucial offseason coach Michael Malone bluntly describes in make-or-break terms, is Nuggets ownership really going to slam the championship window on the fingers of Connelly?

While Connelly has made mistakes in Denver, what feels like an impending divorce from the team is stupid.
