Three Draft-day options for the Denver Nuggets

  It’s official. The NBA’s draft lottery system hates the Denver Nuggets. In the 30 years since the Lottery’s inception, the Nuggets have never — not even once — moved up beyond their expected draft position. In fact, more often than not they have moved back as other teams leapfrogged them in the draft order. This year proved to be no different as the Nuggets landed the...

Is it too soon to grade the Denver Nuggets' front office moves?

Tim Connelly's barely been on the job for two years, but he's already made enough moves within that span to give an idea as to his managerial acumen. There were bad moves – the JJ Hickson, Nate Robinson and Kenneth Faried signings – but also some pretty good ones, like his draft night trade that landed Jusuf Nurkic and Gary Harris.So what do all of these moves tell us about Connelly...

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...

Nuggets fall in LA to extend losing streak

Jamal Crawford had 23 points off the bench for the L.A. as the Denver Nuggets once again stumbled late, losing to Clippers 102-98 Monday night to extend their losing streak to seven games. It seems like, with this Nuggets team, I could copy/paste a game recap every single night. Another hard fought affair where the Nuggets played well enough to win – but a failure to execute...

Danilo Gallinari calls J.J. Hickson alley-oop in Italian during Nuggets-Mavericks

As the Denver Nuggets continue to rebuild in the Western Conference, one of the pieces to their future is forward Danilo Gallinari. Since Danilo is out due to knee injury, he could only watch from the sidelines as his Nuggets squad faced off against the Dallas Mavericks. During the second quarter of play, Danilo got the chance to join the Nuggets broadcast team at Altitude Sports...

Tyler Hansbrough posterizes J.J. Hickson with two-handed slam dunk

Who would be psychotic enough to drive inside and dunk on J.J. Hickson? Well, of course, it would be the guy whose nickname is “Psycho T.” Check out Tyler Hansbrough dunk on poor Hickson on Sunday night’s Raptors/Nuggets contest: That helped the Raptors beat the Nuggets, 116-102. That dunk by Hansbrough should be worth 20 points alone. *** Tyler Hansbrough pic courtesy of...

Tyler Hansbrough Dunks All Over JJ Hickson

Toronto Raptors forward Tyler Hansbrough aka Psycho T doesn’t blink enough for my liking, but this poster dunk he had on JJ Hickson in the Raptors road win against the Denver Nuggets. Definitely makes him the kind of crazy man you want on your side when the game begins. The post Tyler Hansbrough Dunks All Over JJ Hickson appeared first on Hooped Up.

J.J. Hickson denies Gorgui Dieng slam dunk with huge block

There are times in life when getting blocked can be a bad thing but in the case of Denver Nuggets forward J.J. Hickson, one of his blocks during the Nuggets-Timberwolves game was a good thing for his squad. As time wound down in the third quarter of play, Minnesota’s Gorgui Dieng appeared to have an open lane to the basket for an easy dunk. Watch as J.J. soars to deny Dieng the...

Nuggets are still lacking an identity

It’s tough to fault the Nuggets for Sunday night’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs. Playing on the second night of a back-to-back against the defending champions is a tough task, never mind the fact that the game was on Denver’s home court. There’s no shame in falling short, as the Nuggets did, 99-91 to a team as talented as San Antonio. That doesn’t make things any less...

Nuggets tickets up by 144% in 2014

A year after a disappointing 36-46 season, the Denver Nuggets will look to rebound in 2014-15. The first year under head coach Brian Shaw did not end well, though injuries played a large part in the underwhelming play. With players like Danilo Gallinari, J.J Hickson, JaVale McGee and Nate Robinson healthy, the rotation depth should be much better than it was last season. There is...

NBA 30 Teams/30 Days Preview: With good health, Nuggets still capable of sleeper role

Coach Brian Shaw finally landed a head-coaching gig after seemingly interviewing, then getting turned down, forever. Following his first season with the Nuggets, we can safely say the jury is still out. Shaw is a former point guard and a strong leader who is known for his Xs and Os. But can he sell the players on his smarts? The next year or two should answer that. Centers JaVale...

Denver Nuggets 2014-15 Franchise Outlook

With a healthy roster, Denver could be a surprise team out West. Last season was in large part a wash for the Denver Nuggets, as injuries crippled a team capable of making the playoffs. It started with Danilo Gallinari’s torn ACL back in April 2013, which kept him out all of last season, and things got worse from there. JaVale McGee only played in five games due to a stress fracture...
