In February 2011, with Brewer due to become a free agent at the end of the season, Minnesota dealt him to New York in the three-team trade that featured Denver sending Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks.Brewer was waived the following month and then picked up by Dallas, which signed him to a three-year, 7 million contract. That sounded like stability.Nope. After finishing 2010-11 with Mavericks, which included barely playing in the postseason during their championship run, Brewer was traded before last season to Denver in a salary dump.In two Nuggets seasons, Brewer has become a key cog off the bench. So can the six-year veteran from the University of Florida finally breath easy?You never have no stability until you have a deal, said Brewer, who will be a free agent after the season. So right now Im just living in the moment.If Brewer ke...

Sunday night’s NBA slate featured a hotly contested match-up between the Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder, and as the game tightened late, Nuggets mascot Rocky attempted a couple no-look half-court shots during breaks in the action.

Denver Nuggets forward JaVale McGee is the epitome of an enigma. So much raw talent and potential as a basketball player, yet the brain and skills aren’t meshing.
For every athletic and gifted play he makes, a bone headed decision follows. The Nuggets and head coach George Karl are displaying a ton of patience with him, but as Karl told the Denver Post.
“He’s got to understand...
Rocky, the Denver Nuggets mascot, attempted a a half court shot over his shoulder. Russell Westbrook was having none of the TV timeout entertainment, and took Rocky’s shot out of mid-air. Rocky then attempted another half court shot but Westbrook goaltended that one as well. The fans were not all too pleased with Westbrook rejecting Rocky’s shot, because had he hit it, the...
After a 24 point, 17 rebound, five assist night against the Philadelphia 76ers that drew raves from Charles Barkley and others, we wouldn’t be surprised if coaches were showing their young bigs Tim Duncan game tape as the 36-year-old San Antonio Spurs forward has been the picture of consistency all season and throughout his career.
Not surprisingly, one NBA head coach is hoping...
Russell Westbrook got the Denver fans going Sunday night when he blocked Rocky, the Nuggets’ mascot’s, halfcourt shot during a timeout:

Over the years, I've seen crazy moments in the NBA but I've never seen an NBA player deny a mascot's half court shot.However, that's exactly what happened during last weekend's tilt between the Denver Nuggets and the Oklahoma City Thunder as OKC's Russell Westbrook denied a shot from Nuggets mascot "Rocky":
