Offday Offerings – Vince McMahon has Game 4 in a Headlock

Here is an abbreviated Offday Offerings as I continue to watch game film in preparation for the Denver Nuggets/Los Angeles Lakers Western Conference Finals. FM 104.3 The Fan in Denver is reporting that the Pepsi Center is double booked on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25.  WWE Monday Night Raw, which is broadcast live, is slated to […]

Denver Nuggets/Los Angeles Lakers – Initial Thoughts

So far in the 2009 NBA Playoffs the Nuggets have only had to deal with players like Tyson Chandler, Hilton Armstrong, Erick Damiper, Ryan Hollins and Brandon Bass.  Not an overly impressive group, eh? Next up is Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. If that did not get your attention, I do not know what will.  […]

2009 NBA Playoffs Round 2 Game 5: Denver Nuggets 124 – Dallas Mavericks 110

Box Score | Highlights I told you I would post a game five recap, not that anyone cares at this point though. For all the talent the Nuggets possessed in the Carmelo Anthony/Allen Iverson pairing there is nothing quite like watching Denver play when both Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony are playing at their peak […]

2009 NBA Playoffs Round 2 Game 5: Denver Nuggets vs Dallas Mavericks Game Thread

The Denver Nuggets have another chance to close out a series in game five at home in the Pepsi Center.  Following their game four loss I fully expect the Nuggets to come out with a strong desire to put Dallas away.  Denver better be ready to play because the Mavs have been slowly figuring out […]

Melo and Chauncey – Third Team All-NBA

Both Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups have been named Third Team All-NBA.

Nene, J.R. Smith and Chris Andersen Not the NBA’s Most Improved Player

No Denver Nuggets’ player won the NBA Most Improved Player award, but Denver was well represented in the voting.  Danny Granger from the Indiana Pacers won the award with 364 points (48 first place votes, 37 second and 13 third) finishing 25 points ahead of Devin Harris.  Nene was the first Nugget on the list […]

Chat Postponed

If you stopped by to take part in the chat I promoted earlier today, it has been temporarily postponed/potentially canceled.  I have not heard from Rob yet and he is the technical genius who set the first one up.  Sorry if news has ruined your day.  Hopefully tonight’s game will lift your spirits.

2009 NBA Playoffs Round 2 Game 3: Denver Nuggets 106 – Dallas Mavericks 105

Box Score | Highlights If you are looking for a reason why the Denver Nuggets struggled to duplicate their relatively easy wins from the first two games of the series against the Dallas Mavericks I will give you three.  First Dallas played with more fire and intensity because they were at home.  They are a […]

2009 NBA Playoffs Round 2 Game 3: Denver Nuggets at Dallas Mavericks Game Thread

The agonizing layoff between games two and three is over and once again the Denver Nuggets go on the road with the possibility of reaching the next round of the playoffs without setting foot back in Denver.  Denver carries a seven game winning streak against the Mavericks into the contest, but the simple fact the […]

Offday Offerings – Where I Gladly Consume Copious Amounts of Crow

On March 10, 2009 I wrote the following: With the stink bomb the Nuggets dropped on us the past couple of weeks they have almost completely destroyed any chance of earning home court advantage in the playoffs.  I have a difficult time envisioning a scenario where they catch the Spurs, Jazz or Hornets.  Plus with the loss […]

Denver Nuggets 117 – Dallas Mavericks 105 – Additional Nuggets

Box Score I promised you these the day after the game.  Well, I have not gone to bed yet so no matter what the calendar says, I delivered! How far gone is Jason Kidd?  Exactly a minute and a half into the game he stole the ball from Kenyon Martin, drove the length of the […]
