In the mid to latter part of the last decade, Jeremy Wagner — aka, the Godfather of Nuggets Blogging — began to write about the Denver Nuggets. He started a small blog called Pickaxe and Roll and was the first NBA blogger to utilize video analysis. Shortly thereafter Jeremy was approached by ESPN to join the TrueHoop Network and in January of 2009 Roundball Mining Company was created as one of the founding members of the original TrueHoop family of blogs.
For several years Roundball Mining Company thrived as one of the premier outlets for detailed Denver Nuggets analysis, but as his readership grew Jeremy was finding it evermore difficult to maintain his regular blogging practices without any help. So, in the winter of 2011, Jeremy invited Charlie Yao and Kalen Deremo to assist in the evolving maintenance of the everyday blog and expand the brand he worked diligently to create. Not long thereafter, Roundball Mining Company saw an unprecedented surge in content and traffic.
Roundball Mining Company has come a long way since Jeremy first started covering the Denver Nuggets over seven years ago. There are now nine writers from around the world (with direct ties to Japan, Iceland and England) working to bring you the best in-depth analysis of the Nuggets anywhere on the Internet. And although the names have changed, the principles remain the same: hard work, detailed analysis, no bias.
As the masthead says, we’ll move the earth for a title.
There are some things Roundball Mining Company is, and some things Roundball Mining Company is not. Roundball Mining company is a Denver Nuggets blog. It’s a place where casual fans and diehards alike can keep up with fundamental news and happenings regarding their favorite pro basketball team. It’s a place where analysis is taken seriously and considered paramount over everything else. This is where fans come to learn about the Denver Nuggets. It’s where anybody who has even a remote interest in the team can become a more informed fan. It is not a gossip forum. It is not a source for breaking news (although we try to report important developments as quickly as we can). As writers, our goal is to make you a smarter, more knowledgeable basketball fan, especially when it comes to the Denver Nuggets. And though we may not always succeed in this regard, nothing will stop us from trying. As always, thanks for reading.
At Roundball Mining Company, we consider commenting on articles a privilege — NOT a right. Therefore, we expect germane, civil, respectful discussions about the Denver Nuggets and whatever topics are under review. Personal attacks, excessive profanity and anything we consider to be even mildly offensive WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! If we notice you’ve become a serial offender in any of the above categories, you will be promptly added to our blacklist and served a written warning via e-mail. If you’re found to have violated our policy a second time, you will then be blocked from commenting on any Roundball Mining Company article in the future. It’s pretty simple, really. Say intelligent, insightful, respectful stuff, and you have absolutely nothing to worry about. So please, respect your fellow fans and our talented team of writers. Don’t do criminal things and we won’t have to do policeman things. In this scenario everyone wins — including the Denver Nuggets.
