As you can tell, Roundball Mining Company has undergone a massive makeover the last few days. Truth be told, this transition has been in the works for years, with many missed connections and unfinished projects along the way. But at last RMC has taken its first step into the 21st century. If you look around […]
A few of you have e-mailed me about this and though tickets have already been on sale for about a week I thought I’d post this as a reminder… In order to purchase tickets for the Nuggets-Blazers game on Oct. 21 at the University of Colorado in Boulder simply go to CUBuffs.com. The game will […]
Dear Roundball Mining Company readers, We will be experiencing an update over the next week or so. We’re going to be adding some new features like forums and a contact page, as well as revamping the look and feel of the site to hopefully bring RMC into the 21st century. During this time we may experience […]
Ty Lawson put the smackdown on James Harden via his Instagram feed last week, and to date, Harden has made no response. Smells like Lawson may be on to something. Plenty of players in the NBA get by on lackluster defense. This article posted on House of Houston comments on Harden’s defense, but also notes Nuggets […]
Following yesterday’s NBA schedule release, Kalen offered his initial thoughts and observations about what’s on tap for the Nuggets in 2014-15, and in case you missed it I’d recommend checking that out before proceeding. Here I’ll dig a little deeper into the nuts and bolts of the schedule, and break down the numbers regarding road […]
As you probably are aware by now, Aaron Brooks and Jan Vesely will not return to the Nuggets next season. Vesely has signed a three year deal with Fenerbache in Istanbul while Brooks is reportedly near completing a deal with the Chicago Bulls. These developments come as no surprise. The Nuggets are already stacked at […]
The Nuggets found themselves on the other end of a beatdown in their second summer league game, losing by a score of 103-76 to the Chicago Bulls. Former Nugget (for about 10 minutes) Doug McDermott torched Denver for 31 points on 12 shots. Quincy Miller had another big scoring night for the Nuggets, finishing up with 24 […]
As first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Denver has traded Evan Fournier and the 56th pick to Orlando for Aaron Afflalo.
The 2014 NBA Draft edges ever-closer, and with every day more questions emerge. It’s not merely about who to pick (as Kalen is listing so brilliantly in his Prospecting posts this week), or how to go about selecting the best player for Denver in this draft, but what this draft will reveal about the Denver […]
Erlingur Einarsson is a new contributor to Roundball Mining Company. He is excited to join our team and honored to be an active part of something he cares so deeply about. This is the story of his relationship with the Denver Nuggets for the last 23 years…
Freedom is an oft-misinterpreted subject. People think they understand what freedom means — they lust for it, obsessively idealize it, even kill over it — yet when faced with unbridled liberty people often become engines of irresponsibility, abuse their privileges and go absolutely bonkers on their fellow man. This, unfortunately, is what has happened in […]
The 2013-14 Denver Nuggets season was not exactly what we all hoped for. It was oftentimes ugly, occasionally depressing and teeming with injuries. But there was also an assortment of quality performances turned in from nearly everyone on the roster — mainstays and midseason transplants alike. Although the gaudy numbers produced in these outings didn’t […]
Let’s make this short and sweet: You love the Nuggets. We love the Nuggets. The only difference is that we take all the frustrating, ecstatic, befuddled, dogmatic thoughts that float around in our heads all year round and turn them into words for you to optically digest and hopefully enjoy. We try our best for […]
Denver got shoved into the grind house by Memphis once again like Steve Buscemi in a wood-chipper. Grades will be up shortly.
Much has been made of Brian Shaw’s decision on Monday night to allow Timofey Mozgov to attempt a game winning three. In what has become a lost season for the Nuggets it was a chance to steal a game against a potential playoff team and it was thrown away before anyone, including the Grizzlies, really […]
The Nuggets have had to deal with the disheartening reality that they’ve not been a playoff team this year for the better part of the last couple months. While we tend to not think of them as such, NBA players and coaches are professionals whose job is essentially to attempt to get into the playoffs […]
Faried’s blossoming post game: Matt had a great write-up on Faried’s improvements but I thought it was worth reiterating it a bit here. Faried began the year a player adrift. The GM who coveted him when so many others had passed and the coach whose up and down offensive style seemed designed to maximize his […]
A thoroughly entertaining Sunday afternoon game ends with a solid, albeit unnecessarily dragged out, Nuggets win.
