Quote string upcoming.— Denver Nuggets (@denvernuggets) February 22, 2014#Nuggets coach Brian Shaw: "I felt like we had some guys that just decided they weren’t going to play tonight."— Denver Nuggets (@denvernuggets) February 22, 2014Shaw cont'd: "It’s unfortunate. We’re professionals, and as a staff we have to beg guys to give effort when they play." #Nuggets— Denver Nuggets (@denvernuggets) February 22, 2014Shaw cont'd: "I told our team, I wish paychecks were predicated on night to night performance." #Nuggets— Denver Nuggets (@denvernuggets) February 22, 2014Shaw cont'd: "If you play like an uninspired player, then either you don’t get paid, or you get paid like an uninspired player."— Denver Nuggets (@denvernuggets) February 22, 2014More Shaw: "We act like the big bad wolf against Milwaukee. Then we come in against the Bulls and we tuck our tails, and we hide."— Denver Nuggets (@denvernuggets) February 22, 2014More Shaw: "We don’t defend at all from the onset of the game until the end.

  • If shaw ripping the players that is ok but he needs to look at himself because he came in like macdaniels did with the broncs and got rid of good players and also has an attitude when a player questions him. He needs to leave now and get a coach who is going to respect the players not put them down
