Kenneth Faried throws down ferocious slam dunk against Pelicans

The Denver Nuggets have had an up and down season. But one of the few bright spots of the Nuggets is when Kenneth Faried throws down a nasty dunk. Like the one in this video against New Orleans: Quite a statement dunk. Faried doesn’t do a lot of things well on the basketball court outside of his energy play but we do love his assaults at the rim. *** Kenneth Faried pic from Getty...

Nuggets healthy for the first time in two years

Snapping a losing steak – like the Denver Nuggets did Wednesday night by beating the New Orleans Pelicans 93-85 - is always a bit of a mixed blessing. Yes, the Nuggets got off the schnide, but to do that, they did have to lose seven straight in the first place. In Denver’s particular case, there’s also the worry of where the season is actually headed. With the playoffs...

NEW ORLEANS -- The Denver Nuggets say JaVale McGee, who has missed 26 straight games, will be in uniform for Wednesday night's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Denver sports survivor’s guide

The calendar doesn’t lie; the 230 days that it shows between now and the next time the Broncos play a meaningful game, most likely slated for Sept. 13, 2015, are painfully true. The chance to wash the bitter taste of the loss to Indianapolis is almost 33 weeks away.

Denver’s Gallinari and Galli-mini have a laugh

This is slightly creepy for some reason. Denver’s Danilo Gallinari and a little action figure of himself named Galli-mini exchanged some laughs over a joke that went right over my head. However, the voice for the Galli-mini was all creepy. Welp, enjoy! It’s definitely no “Little Penny.” The post Denver’s Gallinari and Galli-mini have a laugh appeared first on Crossover Chronicles.

Green Envy: What Nuggets fans said - 1/24

Evan Turner wilted at the free throw line down the stretch, which left just enough time for Jameer to brick...

Fans of the tank beware: Celtics beat the Denver Nuggets 100-99

Watch Wilson Chandler destroy Tyson Chandler

There has to be some penal code for Chandler-on-Chandler crime because that is exactly what happened during the recent Nuggets-Mavs game.
