Wages of Wins Journal:
I decided to put together my all-time Denver Nuggets dream team. I picked the best Nuggets based on their top three complete seasons with the team (very similar to what James did for the top 25 players in their prime) and chose the best available player at each position. Enjoy!
Starting PG – Fat Lever
Best Seasons – 1987, 1988 and 1990
Playing Time – 8982 Minutes
Wins Produced – 71.1
WP48 – 0.381
Back in the 1980s the Nuggets were a perrenial playoff team and almost a contender. Fat Lever was a huge part of that and in fact his stint with the Nuggets is one of the greatest of all time. He ended his time with the Nuggets with a great season before leaving and declining in Dallas.
Starting SG – T.R. Dunn
Best Seasons – 1982, 1983, 1984
Playing Time – 7864 Minutes
Wins Produced – 41.3
WP48 – 0.252
Another member of the late great 1980s Nuggets makes the list. Sadly his prime just missed Fat Lever’s time in the spotlight. He is a misleading player for the two guard spot. While he...
BEST OF MAXIM
George Karl is a cool guy. He's coached in the NBA for over two decades, he's won over one thousand games, he's got a son who played in the Association, and he helped navigate the Denver Nuggets through the "Melo Drama" of last season into the NBA Playoffs for the twentieth time in his career as a head coach. Last season marked the seventh year in a row he&...
EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING RIGHT NOW AND READ THIS EXCHANGE FROM A SLAM MAGAZINE INTERVIEW WITH CHRIS “BIRDMAN” ANDERSEN:
SLAM: A lot of NBA guys have been playing in streetball games this summer. Not you. Why? What have you been up to instead?
CHRIS ANDERSEN: I’m actually from the woods down in Texas. I’ve been training and whatnot about basketball, but also I’m...
Over the past decade, Chris "Birdman" Andersen has been one of the more complicated figures in the NBA. After dealing with serious drug problems, the athletic big man has turned his life around without losing his borderline-crazy personality. He's a lot of fun to watch.
He also has the sorts of life goals we don't normally associate with NBA players. At a launch...
Chris Anderson didn’t head over to China with what seems like half of the Denver Nuggets squad to hoop it up this season. While other NBA players have been making appearances on Law & Order, Family Feud, and Sesame Street Birdman has been keeping a pretty low profile. He’s been working on his game a bit [...]
Nuggets shot blocking machine Chris Andersen is not your typical NBA player — in a league with inked-up players, the Birdman’s tattoos turn your head. And blind you. So we should have guessed that when SLAM magazine asked him what he was up to this summer (at a Converse event), the response was going to…
