Next to the Los Angeles Clippers I am starting to think that the Denver Nuggets might be the most entertaining team in the NBA to watch. They don't throw down anywhere near the craziness that the Clippers do (as if that was possible), but when they do throw down with some craziness--they throw it down!
Case in point--this alley oop jam from Wilson Chandler to Andre Iguodala!
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee had a monster block on a layup attempt by Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes in the third quarter of Thursday night's 107-92 victory at the Pepsi Center. After McGee swatted the ball out of bounds, he grabbed the ball and pretended to autograph it for posterity.
McGee only played 14 minutes in the game and had no points, but certainly...
The Denver Nuggets began the season appearing to be a dismal, bottom-feeding team that, perhaps, had made a wrong trade. After all, they were 11-12, and the instantaneous reaction was that Denver – well – sucked and trading for Andre Iguodala was a bunk move. Not even a third into the season, the overall consensus of online NBA fans, [...]The post How Far Can the Denver...
The Los Angeles Clippers are highly regarded as the new “Showtime” in the city of angels.
The tandem of Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin pulled off a through-the-legs-alleyoop-to-Tomahawk-dunk that was sensational in their 117-101 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

For so long, Wilson Chandler has seemed to provide only a glimpse of his vast talents, like the tattoo of his daughter that peeks above the neckline of his jersey.
Chandler did it all at DePaul — which could have been a pretty cool title for a player of the year campaign. (“Wilson Chandler does it all, at DePaul! Sponsored by Nike!”) But he never led the Blue Demons beyond...
The Denver Nuggets have been kind of good lately, and Wilson Chandler has been a big part of that. Since returning from a sore hip, Chandler has made the deep and athletic Nuggets even more deep and athletic. Just a week ago, he scored 35 points in a win over Oklahoma City.
Nobody on the Clippers bothered to stop the ball when Chandler got it on a fast break on Thursday...
The Clippers might be “Lob City” but the Nuggets want to remind you that in Denver it’s all about the altitude. Which of course was on display when the Clippers and Nuggets faced off Thursday night. Wilson Chandler showed off his skill set in transition. Check out this dunk where Andre Iguodala hits Chandler.
Matt Barnes wanted no parts of that highlight reel. Maybe it...
The Clippers knew it wouldn't be easy early morning arrival in Denver, thin air, back-to-back games, tough road venue.
To their credit, they kept it close for most of three quarters Friday night. But the Nuggets were too fast and too efficient at home, ending the Clippers' five-game road winning streak with a 107-92 victory.
Beating the Nuggets on their home court has...
Blake Griffin wowed the audience with a massive windmill jam after Clippers teammate Jamal Crawford got things going with a through-the-legs pass.
Jamal Crawford gets crafty on the fast break, going between the legs to Blake Griffin for the windmill dunk during the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s game against the Bucks.
@jcrossover a fool for that lob he just threw to @blakegriffin32 . Me and @dwyanewade may have to steal that one! #sick

Let us talk about entertainment. That is what the NBA really is all about to the casual fan at least. The casual fan may not appreciate the finer points of a weakside rotation, a well-set pick or a perfectly timed pocket pass.
No, fans like scoring. They like seeing athletes get up and down the court...
