JaVale McGee is most noticeable for his Shaqtin’-A-Fool highlights back when he was in Washington, and for the hilarity displayed on his twitter account; thus it seems sensical that people assume JaVale McGee doesn’t meet their intellectual standard. However, Andre Iguodala believes, if anything, McGee is an over-thinker: JaVale McGee is one of the smartest [...]The post JaVale McGee is an “over-thinker” according to Andre Iguodala appeared first on The NBA Mistress.

Remember, folks, not all NBA players follow the Kris Humphries stereotype. Recently the Denver Nuggets’ Andre Iguodala sat down for an interview with GQ which, while largely sticking to basketball, does get into some off-topic subjects with the guard. So beyond learning what it’s like to play in the thin air of Denver and what Iguodala thinks of Jrue Holiday as a player, we also...
When you think of the Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee, the first thing that comes to mind is one of the many boneheaded plays he’s made in his short NBA career. Granted, most of those were with the Washington Wizards so I can give him a half-pass on that.
McGee has never been known to be the sharpest tool in the shed, but his teammate Andre Iguodala has a different...
Some things you just have to see to believe.
Case-in-point...the insane circus shot that Kevin Durant hit Friday night in Denver against the Nuggets.
Now, we all know that the air is thinner in the Mile High City, which could be the only possible explanation for the amount of hang time Durant achieve this "Shot of the Year" candidate.
Starting at the top of the left...
The Denver Nuggets haven’t been that successful in the postseason; to be honest they have resembled a team of mediocrity once playoffs begin due to the slowed tempo, tightened defenses, and half-court setting. They have struggled with shaking the “first-and-done” stereotype from their repertoire. Could this be the year they move to the semifinals? Perhaps. The key ...
Wilson Chandler tied his career high with 35 points and Ty Lawson's jumper with 0.2 seconds left lifted the Denver Nuggets to a 105-103 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night.
Guarded tightly by Thabo Sefolosha, Lawson swished his jumper from just inside the 3-point arc on the right wing. With no time to catch and shoot, the Thunder failed to get off a final tip...
The Denver Nuggets mascot came prepared for Russell Westbrook on Friday night. Prior to the game, Rocky the mascot, tried to settle things with the Thunder guard who didn’t pay him a shred of attention. More importantly, in the second half, Rocky brought a security detail for his traditional half court shot attempts that was blocked last time the Nuggets and Thunder met by Westbrook.
The Denver Nuggets went into the fourth quarter with a 10-point lead on the Oklahoma City Thunder, but couldn’t get as many fast-break points as they did earlier in the game. Thus with less than 17 seconds to go, Denver’s point guard, Ty Lawson, dribbles the ball, and hits a long-range two-pointer to seal a [...]The post Ty Lawson’s Game-Winner (and Bernie) Versus Thunder ...
Cue the music. Move it like Bern is happening. Has been way too long since I moved it like Bern so I think today is a good day to do it. Ty Lawson creates enough space to put a shot up over Thabo for the win. Just the Nuggets quietly sneaking up the Western Conference ranks. Iggy is playing better. No big deal here.
Move it like Bern.
Thabo Sefolosha gave Ty Lawson just a little bit of space on a 4-of-13 shooting night, and Lawson drained what would become the game winning jumper with 0.2 seconds left in a 105-103 win for the Denver Nuggets at home against the Oklahoma City Thunder. In a game that featured an up and down 4th quarter, the [...]
