Hey Nuggets fans, you can check out the live stream from Andre Igoudala’s Google Hangout here starting at 2:00 Mountain time!
According to NBA.com the Denver Nuggets have decided to exercise the third-year option on both Kenneth Faried and Jordan Hamilton’s contracts. Each player will make slightly north of $1 million during the 2013-14 season. This move is a no-brainer. Count on the Nuggets doing this same thing sometime next year.
The Nuggets fell to the Thunder 101-108 on Sunday and unfortunately none of our writers were able to view the game live. There is a chance a recap will be up later, however if there isn’t please feel free to leave your observations of the game in the comments section of this post. Thanks!
Landing at the No. 6 spot in our #NuggetsRank series is point guard Andre Miller, consummate professional, tireless workhorse, and by many accounts George Karl’s favorite player on the team. Last season Miller, along with Al Harrington, assumed a role of veteran leadership to help guide Denver’s young roster to a .576 record and sixth seed in the Western Conference. Playing all 66 games in the lockout-shortened season, he continued to lead the league in fewest missed games among players with 10+ seasons with an amazingly low six DNPs in 13 years in the NBA.

No. 7 on Roundball Mining Company’s #NuggetsRank series is none other than Wilson Chandler. After coming to Denver in the winter of 2011, Chandler has spent much of his Nuggets career either sidelined due to injury or overseas. While many Nuggets fans love the versatility Chandler brings to the table, some feel his role on the team has been slipping ever since he arrived in Denver. But whatever side of the argument you fall on, there’s no denying that Chandler is one of the more talented players on the entire roster. (more…)
The Nuggets defeated the Warriors 104-98 on Monday to go to 3-0 and stay undefeated in the preseason. Here are some game notes…
The Denver Nuggets have five preseason games left on the schedule, and tonight versus the Golden State Warriors (7pm/MT) will be the first of only two to be played at the Pepsi Center. Denver did win its first two games, and now that they’ve been played we have gotten the chance to see some of the players in action, and some of the lineups that George Karl is experimenting with. The coaching decisions and player performances thus far point to a few interesting questions, and over the course of the next few games we will hopefully be closer to having the answers. (more…)
The Nuggets and Spurs are currently tied 45-45 at halftime. Here are some quick thoughts on the first half:
The post-Carmelo Anthony era of the Denver Nuggets began, of course, on the day he was traded to New York. That day would mark a historic sea change in the Nuggets culture, and in its wake the newly assembled team handled what could have been a much rougher transition remarkably well, closing out the season with an 18-7 record that few would have thought possible. Despite continued success (relative to expectations around the league) in the following season, the NBA lockout and injuries deprived Denver of the full training camp, preseason and 82-game regular season they really needed to take the team to the next level.
