As if Kenneth Faried wasn't awesome enough just on the court, he's may be even more awesome off of it
Growing up as the son of a lesbian couple in rough-and-tumble Newark, New Jersey, I am sure Kenneth Faried -- also know as Manimal, a stunningly fitting nickname for the Morehead State product -- heard the jokes from schoolmates about him having two moms and no father figure present.
Well, clearly those putdowns have not stopped the Nuggets power forward from displaying his beliefs on his sleeve, a characteristic that has led him to become the first NBA player to join the organization Athlete Ally, which is predicated on combatting homophobic prejudice in the world of professional sports.
The move is something that the NBA has been relatively late to make, as the NHL has a former player among its ranks and the NFL has four. The MLB does not have any.
Furthermore, Faried's choice to openly support a movement and idea he truly believes in --...

JaVale McGee has had some funny moments this season, and a few good one's also like this self alley-opp, but this fully court alley-opp from Andre Miller looked like a Dwayne Wade pass to LeBron James. Check out the huge dunk below and see if you can tell the difference.
McGee finished with 14 points as the Denver Nuggets lost to the Brooklyn Nets 119-108.
With the Nuggets having four players out, Anthony Randolph played 27 minutes while scoring 16 points to go with seven rebounds and three steals.
It wouldn't be a week here at That NBA Lottery Pick without a memorable highlight from Denver Nuggets forward JaVale McGee.On this Wednesday night, Denver is in Brooklyn to face the Nets and the first quarter saw Andre Miller feed a half court alley-opp that JaVale slammed down:

Nuggets big man Timofey Mozgov may have finally finished having nightmares from the time Blake Griffin dunked oh him so bad, that he got the dunk named after him and now a poster dunk can be a Mozgov’d.
Two years later Mozgov might not have nightmares, but he was Mozgov’d again by Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan after a strong drive down the lane.
The look on Timofey Mozgov’s face...
Coming over from the 76ers this summer, Andre Iguodala is the backbone of the Nuggets and has brought the team a menacing defensive wingman who has totally revamped this team's outlook and intensity on the non-offensive end of the floor

For the first time...
Approximately seven minutes into Tuesday’s matchup with the Raptors, Timofey Mozgov checked in for the first time in three games. He was forced into action in the stead of JaVale McGee, who happened to re-aggravate a leg injury that’s been giving him problems lately. In fairness to Mozgov, the Raptors seemed to be making a concerted effort to take the ball to the rim even...
Timofey Mozgov learned a valuable lesson in last night’s Nuggets-Raptors game. And that lesson is not to jump with Demar Derozan. Especially when he has a running start.
