Maybe it’s just me, but I kind of like these backpacks. Children’s-themed backpacks seem to have emerged as one of the favorite forms of hazing across sports. The latest victims — if you want to call them that — are the Denver Nuggets rookies. As you can see from the photos above and below, the Nuggets forced their rookies to carry around Dora the Explorer and Hello Kitty backpacks this week. It could be much worse, right?
The Nuggets aren’t alone. Last week, the Timberwolves framed Ricky Rubio and made it look like he had a Justin Bieber backpack in front of his locker. The Fort Myers Miracle also incorporated the Bieber backpack last season as a form of punishment. I say give me a free kid’s backpack over a bad haircut any day of the week.

Blake Griffin did it again on Wednesday night. In the above video all the Griffin did was dunk on no fewer than three members of the Denver Nuggets.
Included in that group was Timofey Mozgov, who is no stranger to being posterized by Griffin. In fact, we’d bet heavily that Mozgov is probably still having nightmares about Griffin on a nightly basis.
The best part about this...
Wilson Chandler is going to need a permission slip from FIBA to play immediately in the NBA. Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the China Basketball Association has denied Chandler's letter of clearance. Chandler will appeal the denial, and Wojnarowski writes that his source believes a resolution will come in the next week.
This delay is just another roadblock...
Denver looked so fantastic coming out on the Staples Center floor, they were active on the offense, defensive intensity was there, the three-ball was working for Denver, but when the going got tough, Coach Karl went back to his good ole standby:Al Harrington. Which may have worked in the game against Minnesota. However, the Clippers aren't Minnesota. For this simple fact, Denver...
Just in case you though that Blake Griffin couldn't put together "oh my god" dunk this season, he pulls off this incredible one against the Denver Nuggets.
Watch as Griffin leaps near the free throw line and throws it down on Timothy Mozgov/Kenneth Faried:
Nuggets rookie Jordan Hamilton, who just yesterday we told you is one of the NBA’s top five players who need more playing time, didn’t disappoint our prediction Wednesday night. Playing against the Clippers in his hometown of Los Angeles, Hamilton went from the left baseline to Reggie Evans’ mug in two dribbles before closing with [...]
Read in Doug Smith’s blog today that the Toronto Raptors are making a case for Wilson Chandler, who just finished a season playing in China.
Chandler always impressed me when he was with the Knicks and I did not really get to see him play much when he was with the Nuggets (who have also met with Chandler).
The guy can score and for the Raptors, that is much needed these days....
Corey Brewer scored 15 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, but it wasn't enough as the Nuggets lost 114-99 to San Antonio on Thursday night at Pepsi Center. Andre Miller added 20 points and seven assists, while Arron Afflalo finished with 19 points for the Nuggets.
It was a weird sight, Kenyon Martin playing his famously fierce defense against Denver.
Last year it was Justin Bieber who displayed deft handles during the Celebrity All-Star game to take home the MVP honors, this year it was another undersized guard, comedian and actor Kevin Hart, who was voted the MVP at the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game. Although he didn’t meet his pre-game predictions of a 40-10 piece,...Read the Rest...
DENVER (AP) DeJuan Blair tied a career high with 28 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, helping the San Antonio Spurs beat the
Denver Nuggets 114-99 on Thursday night to wrap up a nine-game road swing.
Ricky Rubio’s street credibility took a huge hit after being caught rocking a J. Biebs backpack before the All-Star weekend events.
Watch as cameras catch Ricky wearing an old school Justin Bieber backpack while getting off the team bus with the other game participants. Blake Griffin looked as confused as the rest of us when he observed this peculiar site. Rubio tried to make...
If you're going to do stupid backpack pieces, at least have video of Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio wearing a Justin Bieber backpack AND Clipper Blake Griffin reacting to the Bieber...
