THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU! THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU! GAH! GET MY MY HOLY WATER! Sweet Fancy Satan, people. Denver Nuggets star Chris Andersen doesn’t need some coach to help him with his low post game, he needs a freaking exorcist. That is one devilish beard, kids. At the same time, imagine [...]

Naturally, everyone is making a big deal about Nene.
And people are pumped about rookie rebounder Kenneth Faried.
And Timofey Mozgov is probably going to crack the starting lineup.
So when it comes to the Nuggets frontcourt, a lot of folks might have forgotten about Chris Andersen.
But the Birdman’s back, too.
He arrived to Pepsi Center for an involuntary workout today, the...
Nuggets executive Masai Ujiri would like to re-sign Nene and Arron Afflalo, but outside interest may land one or both elsewhere this season.
Our daily list of things you should know about that didn’t fit in our other posts. Who is the most coveted free agent not over 6’11? Arron Afflalo of the Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He is restricted and Denver will match any reasonable offer. Brandon Rush made some tweets that would have gotten…
Denver Nuggets General Manager Masai Ujiri said he will try to re-sign free agents Nene and Arron Afflalo when teams can agree to terms with players starting Dec. 9.
Nene opted out of the last season of his contract and is one of the most sought-after players on the market. Ujiri said he has contacted the [...]
I'd say J.R. Smith's knee has recovered quite nicely, wouldn't you?
Though I can't find an official box score (thanks Chinese censorship of the web... and also a severe language barrier), this video shows Smith going off in a very J.R. Swish kind of way for 52 points. I counted six 3-pointers in there, the last of which came off a spin move beyond the arc...
Zhejiang 113, Bayi 91: This game was close for a little while… basically until JR Smith decided to impersonate a flamethrower and knock down 11 of 15 threes on his way to 52–count ‘em–FIFTY TWO points! JR’s 52 are the new season-high for the CBA, topping Lester Hudson’s 50 from earlier in the year. I’ll just let the video do the rest of the talking here…
The first Nugget in the practice gym today was Andre Miller, who had his first workout there since December of 2006, during his first time in powder blue.
The point guard was part of the famous Allen Iverson trade and returned to George Karl’s Nuggets this June, thanks to a draft-night trade with Portland.
One of the reasons Denver traded Raymond Felton for Miller was because...

TMZ has the wild story of a man who stole a gun from Stan Kroenke, tried to kill himself, and is now facing a restraining order: “Stan Kroenke — the billionaire behind the St. Louis Rams, the Denver Nuggets and Arsenal football (the English kind) — says one of his employees stole a gun from him, tried to kill himself, and now he needs protection from the guy. Kroenke obtained...
The NBA announced today that five season-opening matchups will take place on Christmas Day (the Nuggets will settle for a “Seventh-Night-Of-Hanukkah” Opener).
The Nuggets schedule hasn’t been released yet, but it’s likely that the powder blue will have its first game on Dec. 26.
Meanwhile, the Christmas quintet is pretty cool. The first game of the season will feature former...
