COJ: The Celtics defense is impregnable

Infamously back in January of 2012, there was a game against the Orlando Magic where Avery Bradley's full court defense was so stifling, so murderous, so constant, that allegedly Point Guard Jameer Nelson - who had committed five turnovers in just 25 minutes - continuously asked him to stop picking him up at full court. Whether the pleading be true; the effect Bradley had on Nelson...

Denver Nuggets lack of shooting fatal, outshined by Phoenix Suns

  The Denver Nuggets came off another win against the Houston Rockets on Nov. 13th only to once again drop the next game. The Nuggets were sitting pretty above .500 with a 5-4 record, looking to continue a three-game winning streak against Phoenix; the Suns had other plans. THE RUNDOWN First Quarter – Starters: Emmanuel Mudiay, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, J...

Rather than being overused, Emmanuel Mudiay had his most efficient night

On a night that the Denver Nuggets were without Jameer Nelson, who missed Monday’s game because of a lower back strain, no one would have blamed head coach Michael Malone if he had asked his 19-year-old rookie (and No. 7 overall draft pick) to log a few extra minutes. Instead, Malone kept Mudiay below the 30-minute threshold and employed shooting guard Randy Foye as backup point...

Trying to find the ideal Denver Nuggets rotation

As I wrote last week, I haven’t really been a big fan of Michael Malone’s rotations through the first week and a half of the season. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt for now — two of his best five players have yet to take off their warmups, and he’s still trying to figure out which direction the mountains are — but these things have to get figured out sooner...

Dwight Powell making Dallas feel better about the Rondo trade

When the Dallas Mavericks traded Jameer Nelson, Jae Crowder, and Brandon Wright to the Celtics last December in exchange for Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell, they thought they were getting a superstar point guard and floor leader who was going to give Dirk Nowitzki another shot to win a title. Instead, what they got was a guy whose bad attitude and stubbornness were starting overshadow...

Danilo Gallinari needs to move from “allegedly” great to “truly” great

During the 2015 offseason, Denver Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly made it a point to secure his roster for both the immediate and the not-too-distant future by locking up three key players with contract extensions: Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Jameer Nelson. The moves have been widely praised, as an influx of cash due to next year’s salary cap expansion could have...

Reasons to believe the Nuggets are going to surprise the NBA

Since being drafted by the Denver Nuggets, the hype surrounding Emmanuel Mudiay has been on a steady rise. You’d expect nothing less from the player anointed the future of the franchise. Thankfully, that hype isn’t ballooning expectations for Mike Malone’s rag-tag bunch. There aren’t many reasons to expect much from the Nuggets this season. In fact, most people believe the...

Emmanuel Mudiay’s 16 points, 9 assists lead Nuggets to 114-103 rout vs Warriors

  At just 19-years-old, Emmanuel Mudiay is proving to be every bit the floor general as NBA veteran Ty Lawson — and more. Making plays time and time again, the rookie was setting up teammates and eliciting “oohs” and “ahhs” from the road crowd. A star was being born on national television and those that were fortunate enough to watch this game will look back and remember...

Dwight Howard, image & Houston's title chances

It's hard to talk about the Houston Rockets without coming back to how you feel about Dwight Howard. Howard has gone from franchise centerpiece with the Orlando Magic to second banana in Houston, yet so much of the conversation about the Rockets revolves around the public perception of their star center. I would say he's polarizing except no one really seems to like him anymore....

Jameer Nelson is the right guy at the right time for the Denver Nuggets

There are many what-ifs when it comes to professional sports. In the 2004 NBA Draft the Denver Nuggets selected point guard Jameer Nelson out of Saint Joseph’s, but promptly traded him to the Orlando Magic. The Nuggets already had a point guard duo of Andre Miller and Earl Boykins, and had no use for Nelson at that time. We’ll never know what Nelson’s career path would have...

Nuggets' short-term issues have long-term solutions

Here are a few random observations from the first NBA game at American Airlines Center in almost six months after a tumultuous offseason.
