Denver Nuggets: Early season woes are players fault

One thing I keep hearing fans of the Denver Nuggets asking and/or suggesting is why did the Nuggets fire George Karl and would he come back to them? Acting as if George Karl was this amazing Phil Jackson like coach that the Nuggets should be ashamed of themselves for letting go. Let me tell you now Denver, Phil Jackson himself can’t turn this Nuggets team around. In sports, most...

Nuggets Mining for Gold or What’s Left

The Denver Nuggets have started the year 1-5. The last time the franchise started 1-5 was during the 1998-1999 season where they ended up winning only 14 games. The Nuggets have made the playoffs in 10 out of 11 years (missed last season). I cannot speak for the Nuggets organization but it is easy to infer that the Nuggets are not off to the start they expected. After acquiring...

There’s a new big man in Denver

It’s no secret that I’ve never been much of a “basketball guy.” In fact, my ongoing joke last year when it became apparent that the Denver Nuggets weren’t going to amount to much in the 2013-14 season was that I would attempt to go the entire season without watching an NBA game in its entirety. It was a worthwhile endeavor insofar as it allowed me to vent my frustrations...

2014-15 Suns preview: Can fast lane lead to postseason success?

PHOENIX -- The clock is ticking down to the official launch of an elevated caliber of chaos. The basketball world as we've known it could be up for grabs. Point guards and slingshots will be everywhere. A whiff of anarchy is heavy upon the land. It all could be too much for distant observers, who -- by the way -- still can't believe a roster-balancing trade has not been made...

Shaw getting the Nuggets ready to run

Denver Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw has always wanted his team to push the pace. Now, he’s letting off the reins a little. Shaw was hired before last season when the Nuggets top brass came to the conclusion that George Karl’s run and gun squads couldn’t cut it in the playoffs. Shaw, who came from grind it out teams in both Los Angeles with the Lakers and the Indiana Pacers...

Half Court Pace: A close look at the Denver Nuggets

Last season, the Denver Nuggets experimented with several different styles of play. Coming into training camp, head coach Brian Shaw was determined to rid the Nuggets of the fast paced, drive-and-kick style that had become a staple under George Karl. The theory was that the run-and-gun style of play was not conducive to playoff success. To change that, principles of the triangle...

George Karl’s Harsh Words on the 76ers

“What is happening in Philadelphia should not be called ‘tanking’; rather, it should be called ‘destruction.’  The Sixers are at least three to five years away from even being a respectful — respectful — NBA roster.  They are worse than they were at the end of last year.  Three of the five starters barely played last season.  I understand building around talent...

Lakers to Hire a Coach in the Next Week or So…Maybe

One day before the season starts, I assume the Lakers will hire a head coach. According to ESPN, they will probably hire someone next week or the week after that or maybe never and Kobe will coach the team.

Denver Busy Mining For Silver and Gold

The Nuggets seem set for an offseason of negotiating. It was only a year ago that the Denver Nuggets were a 50-win team featuring one of the deepest squads in the league. While I viewed the fact that the analytical projections had the Nuggets winning the West as something to chuckle about, they did look like a team that could at least win a round in the playoffs.

Will the silence from Pepsi Center be golden?

Crickets. That’s pretty much what we’ve heard from the Denver Nuggets since the end of the season. Compared to last offseason, it is sort of welcome. You remember last year at this time, right? Reigning NBA Executive of the Year Masai Ujiri bolted to sign on with the Toronto Raptors for a fat $5 mil a year on May 31. And a week later, on June 6, Denver fired the reigning NBA...
