There is no long term optimism for the Denver Nuggets outside of Colorado

For the first time since the George Karl era there are reasons to be hopeful about the Denver Nuggets. A potential star fell to them at No. 7 in Emmanuel Mudiay. They rid themselves of Brian Shaw. Gallinari appears to be back. A lot of good things seem to be in the mix, but the growing optimism seems to be limited within the Colorado borders. Recently Chad Ford and Kevin Pelton of...

Brian Shaw never stood a chance

And so the Brian Shaw era of the Denver Nuggets history book came to a close, not with a bang, but before a Tuesday night home game against the Bucks in early March – a whimper if there ever was one. Without rehashing too many of the grisly details, here’s what went down in Shaw’s not-quite two-year tenure in Denver: a 56-85 overall record, an avalanche of uninspiring effort...

Denver Nuggets fire Brian Shaw

In a less-than-surprising move, the Denver Nuggets have fired head coach Brian Shaw. The team is currently 20-39 on the season and simply hasn’t played inspired basketball this season. That came to a head recently when it was reported that players are breaking team huddles with a countdown to the end of the season. Definitely not a good sign. Including this season, Shaw was a...

Presumably trying to start an open revolt, Brian Shaw bans fast food in Denver Nuggets locker room

Coach Brian Shaw's unusual way to improve Nuggets free throws

It’s like that schoolyard bully who would stand a few feet away and not move, telling the kid to hit him with his best shot — if he could. The only difference here is that the kid is the Denver Nuggets, a franchise in a professional basketball league, and the players on the team can’t hit foul shots, even with incentives.
