Denver : NBA Draft Grade C+
(20) Evan Fournier, SG; (38) Quincy Miller, SF; (50) Izzet Turkyilmaz, PF/C
The Nuggets got the best international player in the draft but this was a very week draft for international players. I think the Nuggets reached for Fournier here. I didn’t even have him in my 1st round mock draft. Fournier is a very athletic wing player that is a little bigger and less crazy than former Nugget J.R. Smith. Miller could be a steal but it will likely take him a couple years to live up to his potential. Miller should have stayed another year in college. Turkyilmaz will probably never play in the NBA. The Nuggets really didn’t have any big needs so not expect Fournier or Miller to make an impact this season.

Think Segways are only ridden by lazy mall cops? Think again.Seen here is Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee perusing around downtown Denver on Thursday.

McGee reportedly tweeted this out just a few minutes prior to the bystander taking the shot:For those Twitter savvy folks out there, you may also notice...

After the reveling of the San Antonio Spurs new alternate jerseys for the 2012-2013 season (YUCK, BTW) many other enthusiasts of other teams were scouring at any hint for an alternate leak for their team. This was found in NBA 2K13 in which Ty Lawson models a noisy yellow jersey with the traditional mountain-skyline [...]

I’m downtown often around the 16th Street Mall, but the ONE day I wasn’t look who was riding their Segway acting like Joe Smooth: JaVale McGee! If some of you had followed JaVale last season, shortly after he was traded from the Washington Wizards to the Denver Nuggets he asked fans where a Segway [...]
Between the Denver Nuggets abusing the New York Knicks front office during the Carmelo Anthony blockbuster trade to turning Raymond Felton to Andre Miller, not to mention all the picks, and of course joined to D-12 trade talks to snag Andre Iguodala, there stood one man. One man who stood behind the quiet cunning [...]
While most of the Carolina fan base is entrenched with the football season, we can not forget that the National Basketball Association will soon be here. With that in mind, and with the fact that this season the NBA will have, barring injuries, sixteen former North Carolina basketball players hitting the hardwoods each night, I have decided to find blogs following the NBA squads...
