The Denver Nuggets push towards contention has stalled in an awkward stage. As it stands, the Nuggets are 15-23 on the year, remaining in striking distance of the 8th seed in the Western Conference standings, but have also been thrown around in the conversation for worst team in the conference. The lack of direction was tolerable for the early stages of the season, but the reality...

DENVER — At 15-23, the Denver Nuggets somehow find themselves still in the hunt for the eighth seed in the Western Conference and their first playoff berth since the 2012-2013 season.

Dear Commissioner Adam Silver, I do not usually immerse myself into press conferences because I am more about the action of the game. But with the hype that came with the Denver Nuggets playing the Indiana Pacers in London, England, the press conference that you had with reporters around the world was too much to ignore. It is fair to say that the reporters were more than prepared...
Jusuf Nurkic would apparently welcome a move out of Denver. ESPN’s Marc Stein reported on Saturday that the Nuggets are “openly shopping” the 22-year-old Bosnian big man ahead of the trade deadline. Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post caught up with Nurkic after Denver’s 121-106 loss to Oklahoma City later in the day to ask him about the report. “I have no comment about...

Nurkic, the 16th overall pick in 2014...
Mike Malone is mad as hell, and he’s not going to take this anymore. After a 120-113 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, the Denver Nuggets head coach bluntly called out his team for an utter lack of defensive effort and veteran leadership. “We have the worst defense in the NBA,” Malone said, per Harrison Wind of BSN Denver. “That is the bottom line. It is embarrassing...
