Where does Andre Miller rank among NBA point guards all time? Well, his coach says maybe top five. For real. (As one fan, @Alf954, tweeted when told of the proclamation: “Alphabetically by first name?”) “I’m taking about a true point guard,” Nuggets coach George Karl said, “who plays the game the way a point guard should play, not (necessarily) with the 3-ball and the scoring point guards. But the ‘trueness’ of the position, I think he’s one of the best.” The debate occurred Thursday because the 36-year-old Miller surpassed 15,000 career points during the Nuggets’ game against the Timberwolves, making him only the eighth player ever to have 15,000 points and at least 7,500 assists. via Benjamin Hochman, Denver Post

JaVale McGee Writes ‘Django Unchained’ Tagline on Sneakers (Photo)

JaVale McGee rarely fails to entertain, whether he’s throwing down monster dunks, missing them or finding other ways to make mischief on a basketball court. Off the court, he’s just as entertaining, and is taking his fashion cues from Hollywood, apparently.

DENVER (AP) -- Timberwolves forward Kevin Love has left Minnesota's game against the Denver Nuggets after spraining a finger on his right hand in the third quarter.
