Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving is back as Uncle Drew. This time he’s bringing along his old teammate, “Lights” – Nuggets Nate Robinson and even Lights “Boo” Betty – WNBA Lynx star,Maya Moore, who was great!- gets in on the action. Of course we know that most people recognize “Uncle Drew” at this point but it’s still highly entertaining!
Nate and Maya were great!! Acting skills on point!

Anthony Randolph should play at small-forward, and Wilson Chandler should ball at the 2-guard in the Denver Nuggets starting lineup for 2013-14.
Once Chandler gets healthy enough to start for the Nuggets, coach Brian Shaw will have a mess on his hands.
Chandler hasn’t played in any preseason games. He has missed all eight games from a hamstring injury he sustained at the beginning...
The Denver Nuggets have exercised their fourth-year contract option on forward Kenneth Faried and third-year option on point guard Evan Fournier.
The team announced the moves on Wednesday, hours before they tipped off the season. The options are through the 2014-15 season.
With his high energy style of play, Faried has been a fan favorite since he was taken with the No. 22 pick...
The Nuggets have exercised the fourth-year contract option on forward Kenneth Faried and the third-year option on guard Evan Fournier for 2014-15, general manager/executive vice president of basketball operations Tim Connelly announced today.
Faried, the 22nd overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, averaged 11.5 points and 9.2 rebounds – both career-highs – in 80 games for the Nuggets...
Nuggets guard Ty Lawson said he hopes to be ready for Wednesday night's season opener at Sacramento but that he's not sure his ailing groin will let him.
"It's still feeling a little stiff, so I don't know yet," Lawson said.
Lawson was injured in the Nuggets' final preseason game Friday at Chicago. He did not participate in practice Sunday. He said...
Are the Nuggets crazy? They want to do what? How can creating more shots for physically gifted but offensively awkward big men JaVale McGee and Kenneth Faried make Denver a better team?
That's precisely what point guard Ty Lawson wants to know.
It hasn't been easy for Lawson to make sense of how the Nuggets intend to play basketball.
"I think it has been a little...
Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson has been battling a groin injury as he gets ready for the 2013-14 season to tip off. As of two days ago, it was expected to keep him out of the season-opener when the Nuggets travel to Sacramento to take on the Kings. However, with a little more rest it looks like Lawson will be available against the Kings.
Coach Brian Shaw told the media Wednesday...
The Denver Nuggets have exercised the fourth-year contract option on forward Kenneth Faried and the third-year option on guard Evan Fournier for 2014-15.
Faried, the 22nd overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, averaged 11.5 points and 9.2 rebounds – both career-highs – in 80 games for the Nuggets last season. He recorded 31 double-doubles and ranked ninth in the NBA in field-goal...
Last year: Seasons like 2012-13 in Denver apparently don't cut it anymore. With Ty Lawson leading the way on offense and Andre Iguodala anchoring a highly efficient defense, the Nuggets stormed to a 57-25 finish and the Western Conference's No. 3 seed. Lawson shot 46.1 percent from the field, helming a group of four scorers that averaged 13 or more points...
The Nuggets didn’t have the most favorable offseason. They lost Andre Iguodala, one of their most valuable players, in free agency. George Karl stepped out as head coach and GM Masai Ujiri left to run the Toronto Raptors’ front office. While Denver still has a number of talented players, this season will be a challenge with the way the offseason went. Are the Nuggets...
The Denver Nuggets are leaning toward starting J.J. Hickson at power forward in Wednesday's opener.
Kenneth Faried is returning from a hamstring strain and is coming off a season in which he started all 80 regular season games in which he played.
Sources told ESPN's Zach Lowe last week that the Nuggets are gauging the trade value of Faried.
Would the Nuggets really consider trading young power forward and athletic freak Kenneth Faried?
There are no substantial reports that the Nuggets would actually trade Kenneth Faried. There is just the suggestion from Zach Lowe of Grantland that the Nuggets might have to consider doing this:
Call this a semi-educated guess. Multiple sources around the league have reported in...
Free Agent Signings
- Singed J.J. Hickson to a three year deal worth $15 Million.
- Agreed to a two year deal worth $4 Million with Nate Robinson.
-Randy Foye singed a 3 year deal worth $9 Million in a sign and trade.
-Resigned Timofey Mozgoz
- Denver Traded Kosta Koufos for Darrell Arthur and Joffrey Lauvergne.
- Denver Traded Andre Iguodala Golden State...
The Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings underwent eventful offseasons, with personnel changes that included new coaches for both teams.
While the Nuggets hope their shakeup can help them remain a Western Conference contender, it seems the Kings could continue to struggle.
Denver hits the road Wednesday night for its first game under Brian Shaw and seeks its 10th consecutive win...
