In the past this prototype has been manifested through guys like Corey Brewer, Arron Afflalo and...

Former Magic guard Jameer Nelson finishes fifth in Best Teammate voting

It's not enough for a young team to have a veteran presence in the locker room. In order for that leadership to make much of a difference, it has to be the right veteran presence.

Denver Nuggets propagating an impressive culture

  After the Denver Nuggets re-signed and re-structured the contracts of Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari I took to social media to see how those transactions were viewed across what I like to call “Basketball Twitter.” Most of what I saw were pundits wondering exactly what the Nuggets were doing and re-calling how this franchise is still stuck in the mud of the last two...

Bidding Against Yourself: Free Agent Deals that Exceeded the Market

What can be difficult to remember in free agency is that players on bad contracts aren't necessarily bad players. It could just be that their contract for a specific team at a specific time outweighs their on-court contributions.
