Ty Lawson shouldn’t overshadow Denver Nuggets’ otherwise sound offseason

  If you’ve been paying any attention to BSNDenver.com lately you’re likely well aware of my stance on the recent Ty Lawson escapade. While I firmly stand by my premise regarding the neglectful manner in which the Denver Nuggets addressed Lawson, it absolutely must be noted that aside from this catastrophe the Nuggets have had an outstanding offseason. I’d even go so far as...

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...

Josh Kroenke corroborates Denver Nuggets’ mishandling of Ty Lawson

  Several days ago I detailed the Denver Nuggets’ botched handling of Ty Lawson in a diatribe which you can find here. The general thesis of my argument was that the Nuggets overvalued Lawson from the get-go and waited entirely too long to trade him. Though we’ve known Lawson has had intense off-court trouble for roughly the last six month, according to Nuggets’ president...

Our Hands Are Ty’d

Will the Nuggets be able to cope with the end of the Lawson era, or is this the beginning of a happier Denver tomorrow? Daryl Morey is a thief. He could also be described as nuts. However, after trading a lottery-protected first round pick in next year’s draft, as well as four relative unknowns in Nick Johnson, Pablo Prigioni, Joey Dorsey, and Kostas Papanikolaou, the thief moniker...

The Ty Lawson trade is a win-win-win

Could the Nuggets have received more in return for Ty Lawson? Maybe. But no one – other than a handful of NBA execs behind closed doors and Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who is somehow the Association’s version of Michael Keaton in “Multiplicity” – will ever truly know. There will always be speculation that Lawson could have, or should have, fetched more. On draft night...

What Can Ty Lawson Bring To The Houston Rockets?

Let's get one thing straight before we dive into what this trade means for the Houston Rockets: the idea of what Ty Lawson could bring to Houston is of course fascinating to think about, but first, we need to take a step back.This is a troubled young man, in a serious situation.
