Unfortunately some things have come up and it looks like they will prevent any members of the RMC staff from being able to catch the game in full tonight and provide a recap. Please leave any thoughts you have before, during and after the game. Also I will be Tweeting for the first quarter or so, so please follow me on Twitter for that. Thank you and enjoy the game.
Last night I joined Nate Timmons and Ross Martin, also known as the Colorado Sports Guys, to talk about the Nuggets and the roll they’ll play in the 2012 NBA Draft. You can listen to the podcast player below (I come on at about the 40 minute mark), at the Colorado Sports Guys’ website or download it free on iTunes.

The Northwest Division was recently featured in the annual CelticsBlog season preview smörgåsbord and you can peruse the various posts from the list of links below:
How will Big Al fit in out in Utah? Will the Blazers stay healthy? Will Melo still be a Nugget on opening night? Can the Thunder avoid a sophomore slump? Just what is the plan in ‘Sota? All this and more in the Northwest previews.
Recaps: All Previews
Daily Dime Live also spent a day on the Northwest where the consensus was that it will be probably the toughest division in the league, as least as long as Melo dons the garb of the Nuggets, and the Thunder are getting a little too much hype, a statement I do not agree with. You can follow all the heavy hitting analysis right here.
Sorry for my lack of posts recently, but I am working on a research intensive post which requires me to watch a lot of film. I think it will be well worth the wait. I also have the long promised defensive scouting report of Al Harrington waiting in the queue so look for that soon as well.
Before we get to the meat and potatoes that is the Denver Nuggets first preseason game I want to dish out a couple of hors d’oeuvres.
First of all, the 2010-11 Basketball Prospectus has been published. Once again I had the honor of playing a small role, OK, a very small role, in the chapter on the Nuggets. This is an incredible publication and if you are a fan of basketball, advanced stats, or would like to understand advanced stats a little better, you will love this book. You can order it in PDF format, or in old school paperback. I recommend buying both.
Secondly, ESPN.com is running a Daily Dime featuring every division and Tuesday, October 12 is the Northwest Division’s turn. I would love for you guys to join me from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM Mountain time, because a chat without questions from readers is like a bris without a scalpel. I will toss up a link when I have one and I look forward to chatting with you all. Update: The Northwest Division Daily Dime Live page has been posted. Gird your loins for a great day of chatting.
Those were tasty, now on to the main course.
The Denver Nuggets kicked off the 2010-11 preseason in style by thrashing the Portland Trail Blazers 109-99. The real news was that it was basically business as usual at the Pepsi Center.
Join Spencer Hall from the TrueHoop Network Utah Jazz blog Salt City Hoops and myself for our series preview chat on Friday, April 16 at 2:00 PM Mountain time. We will be answering your questions and posting comments about what should be a tremendous matchup between two division rivals.
