Thanks for reading

With the season now over, Roundball Mining Company will do quite a bit of reflecting on the 2011-12 campaign. But before we get in depth with our analysis we’d like to stop and say thanks. I know Jeremy touched on it in the Game 7 Rapid Reaction but I’d like to expand a bit more on his sincere gratitude to all those who have frequented this blog over the years.

About a year ago I was approached by Charlie and Jeremy asking if I wanted to join RMC as a writer. Being a journalism student and a Nuggets enthusiast, I had been looking for some sort of opening to write about the sports, or the Nuggets, for quite some time. Needless to say, I was ecstatic to hear about their proposal and accepted without thinking twice.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous at first. I’d never written for a website or had my work published for a large group of people to see. But knowing the Nuggets inside and out, and being able to discuss my passion with those who felt the same way as I put me at ease. After only a few posts I already felt at home because I was speaking the same language as all of you  — Nuggets Nation language.

Over the last year I feel like I’ve made monumental steps forward with my writing. I’m sure Charlie feels the same way. The crazy thing is that you’ve all been there to witness it right by our side. I don’t necessarily know what the experience has been like from the outside looking in, but I do know that from my point of view, this has been an unforgettable 15 months.

So, thanks. Thank you all, whomever you may be, no matter how many times you’ve made RMC a part of your day — we just want to say thanks. We greatly appreciate it. Without you, this thing isn’t possible. We could write all day long but without anybody to share our experience with, it just doesn’t mean anything. The community that’s migrated to our site since its inception, and especially over the last year and a half, means the world to us. You guys are Roundball Mining Company and we hope you’ll continue to mold the site with your excellent insight and candid storytelling that you can’t find anywhere else.

Over the next several weeks we’ll have all sorts of analysis coming your way. From 3-on-3s to final grades to season recaps — it’s all going to be here. And as always, RMC is your No. 1 site to visit for draft analysis which should get underway sometime later this month.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the rest. It’s been a long, roller coaster-ride of a season and though it ended prematurely in the eyes of Nuggets fans everywhere, it was still one of the more enjoyable seasons I can remember being a part of.

We look forward to hearing from all of you in the future and once again, thanks for everything!

    Thanks for a great season. RMC is now part of my daily routine. Loved the insight and a place for all things Nuggets. See you next season.

    I think that the Nuggets need to draft Marquis Teague at point guard with their pick. If they resign JaVale.

    Long time reader, first time poster. Thanks for being our one stop shop for Nuggets news and analysis. You guys do a great job, and I enjoyed reading the game recaps, and all of the great articles in between. It’s sad that it’s over, but I believe we have significant upside and reason for optimism here in Denver. Thanks again!!

    Thanks for being awesome guys. Got something to about our foundation to build on our team this year. Hope our FO stays solid on draft day and FA because we have a better core group than most of league already. Finally hope GK teaches this team how to execute plays and some defense next year. But what am I saying, a man can dream!!

    Long time reader, 1st time poster. This site has also been a daily visit since I discovered it. I don’t have the insight or historical knowledge that most readers do, but I am getting up to speed quickly, thanks to them. I went to two playoff wins this year. Pepsi Center was electric. Looking forward to the Nuggets journey. Peace.

  • DH

    You guys are the best. Thanks for everything you do. I am looking forward to a “where do the Nuggets go from here?” article. Of course, I have my own thoughts, as I’m sure other readers do. But I can’t wait to hear what the three of you have to say on the subject.

  • Green Nugz are good

    Kalen nice job writing. You and Jeremy do good work.

    • Green Nugz are good

      The Nuggets blogs on the web cover the team better than the Denver Post!

  • A Roth

    OKC Fans should be sending us thank you letters after what we saw last night.

    The fact that we were down 3-1 but kept fighting was an encouraging sign for next year. I still think the right move would be to package some depth and maybe picks for an upgrade at a starting spot, but at least we know we have young talent that will get better next year with more time playing together, a real offseason for Faried, and a clear no. 1 to follow, Ty Lawson.

  • TJ McBride
