The Denver Nuggets released their entire 2012 preseason schedule on Tuesday. The Nuggets will play seven games over twenty days, all against Western Conference opponents. Denver will open their preseason as the road team in a showdown with the Los Angeles Clippers at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, marking the first time any NBA […]
The NBA’s big spenders will soon have to reckon with a much more punitive luxury tax structure. From the league’s implementation of the tax in 2003, teams have been required to pay “just” one dollar in luxury tax for every dollar in payroll that exceeds the tax threshold. This relatively soft penalty on an already […]
Ever since Masai Ujiri robbed the Knicks back in February 2011 and in the process absorbed the talented young small forward duo of Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari, Nuggets fans have debated which of the two rightfully deserves the most minutes and the starting nod from George Karl. While fans have always stated their opinion, […]
If you’re a Nuggets fan who’s been online in the last 24 hours or so, then you’re probably already aware that there are two aspects of their 2012-13 schedule which have been getting the most attention. The first is that Carmelo Anthony will make his first return to the Pepsi Center on March 13, 2013, […]
We are very happy to belatedly announce an addition to our group of contributors here are RMC. Denbutsu has been a longtime friend of RMC. He has displayed a very good understanding of the Nuggets over the years and we are highly confident he will provide some tremendous insights here at RMC going forward. You […]
What is the point of diminishing returns when it comes to roster depth? This is a question the Denver Nuggets will most likely have to confront over the next few seasons, whether it’s sooner or later. Their much trumpeted youth and depth (see every 2011-12 season preview ever written) have indeed proven to be two […]
The Nuggets wrapped up their 2012 Summer League season in Las Vegas Friday night with a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Jordan Hamilton was kind enough to chat with Roundball Mining Company after the game, discussing his overall experience, personal growth, and his expectations for next season. Many thanks to Jordan Hamilton for taking […]
The Denver Nuggets fell to 1-3 in Summer League play after losing to the Bobcats Thursday night at the Thomas & Mack Center. There was a scary moment in the second quarter when Kenneth Faried went down hard after catching an inadvertent elbow from Quincy Miller, but Faried was back on the bench in the […]
This past week was a very active one from the Nuggets’ standpoint. In addition to competing in the Las Vegas Summer League, the Nuggets amnestied Chris “Birdman” Andersen, signed Anthony Randolph and re-signed JaVale McGee. To gain a better understanding of what these moves entail, we’ve called upon our writers to dish out analysis in […]
I caught up with Coby Karl following the Timberwolves win over Cleveland Cavaliers at the Las Vegas Summer League. I’ve always admired Coby as a player and he’s been one of the most professional guys I’ve talked to in Las Vegas. He was kind enough to chat with Roundball Mining Company on playing overseas, the […]
I caught up with Corey Brewer at the Las Vegas Summer League Wednesday night and he was kind enough to answer a couple of questions for Roundball Mining Company. Corey’s in town to support his young teammates and work out with the ever-growing contingent of Nuggets players converging in the desert to witness some 2012 […]
The Nuggets just officially announced the re-signing of restricted free agent JaVale McGee. He signed the deal in Las Vegas with members of the Denver front office and his mother present. Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reported that the deal is 4 years for $44 million, a larger annual amount but a smaller guarantee than […]
The Denver Nuggets notched their first win of the Las Vegas Summer League yesterday, defeating the Knicks 85-81 in a close game that provided the first true pressure test for many of the young prospects here.
Who is Anthony Randolph? Randolph is a player who just completed his fourth season in the NBA. In those four seasons he has played for three different teams and all three teams have been content to let him go. Do me a favor and do not judge him based on that introduction.
According to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post, the Nuggets have decided to use their lone amnesty provision on Chris “Birdman” Andersen and will sign free agent forward, Anthony Randolph, in his place. According to Yahoo!Sports’ Marc J. Spears, Randolph’s contract is a three-year deal worth $6 million total. If true, this is a steal. […]
