This week’s comment comes courtesy of townshend fan: great players do not solely want to go where the glamour is. They also would consider […]
In light of the Nuggets sucking quite well through the first 10 games of the season, The Denver Post’s Christopher Dempsey had a lively reader mailbag from a few days back. In his responses to the questions posed he notes how (A) Shaw won’t be fired this season, (B) the Nuggets roster would be viewed […]
The Denver Nuggets are on a winning streak as they best the Thunder of Oklahoma City for a 107-100 win. Grades and commentary are posted below.
As Charlie posted on Monday, ESPN.com’s Kevin Arnovitz has composed a fantastic dissection of the Denver Nuggets organization under Josh Kroenke. To echo what Charlie said, there’s a lot to digest. This is no light bread-and-butter appetizer, but rather a savory meat and potatoes entree. It’s heavy and sometimes difficult to swallow, but without question […]
Just a few hours after ESPN posts an article about why the Nuggets are so terrible, they respond with a convincing win over the Eastern favorite Cleveland Cavaliers. Maybe Shaw used that as motivation in the pregame? Denver Nuggets 106 Final Recap | Box Score 97 Cleveland Cavaliers Kenneth Faried, PF 22 MIN | 4-6 […]
What’s wrong with the Denver Nuggets? It’s a loaded question, and one we’ll be doing our best to answer all season. One outstanding report from ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz shines the light on poor management, dissecting the league-wide view of why one of the proudest franchises in the NBA has sunk so low, so fast. Be […]
After the tragicomedy that was Knicks-Nuggets, Denver finds itself as a team in desperate need of an exorcism. Whatever demons have manifested themselves within this team seems to have stumped Brian Shaw. So it is to the heavens, to God Shammgod that we pray for these Nuggets salvation. Denver Nuggets 93 Final Recap | Box Score 109 New […]
The Nuggets beat the Pacers in blowout fashion for their first win in over 2 weeks. Denver is now 1-0 on a 3 game road swing that will take them to New York and Cleveland next.
Welcome to the Reader Comment of the Week, a recurring series where we’ll highlight voices from Roundball Mining Company community found in our forum, comments section, in e-mails and through Twitter rants. This week’s comment comes courtesy of LBJ: …instead of establishing a rotation (like every other NBA team) Shaw decides to hold nightly tryouts. […]
The Denver Nuggets are a bad basketball team. Maybe the worst. That’s not just a hot sportz take, it’s a careful distillation of all the evidence surrounding a franchise in turmoil. Ever since the failed re-tooling and re-branding of a 57-win team, the Nuggets have followed the natural progression of a rudderless franchise at odds […]
Following in Charlie’s footsteps from a few nights back when he decided to forgo player grades, I too refuse to grade anybody’s performance this game as it’s not seeing the forest for the trees, so to speak. Doing a traditional recap at this point is nothing but persnickety. Instead I will write something I was […]
If you’ve been paying any attention to the Nuggets through the first handful of games this season you’ve likely noticed a few frightening patterns. One of those is the team’s absolute refusal to play anything remotely resembling defense in any shape or form, which is detailed below in a guest post by fellow Nuggets fan […]
Denver, something akin to that one bug in your car no amount of open windows could flush out, stuck around with what should’ve been a tired Portland coming off a back to back in a game that was competitive, but only just. Six games in, Denver appears to be a a shell of the team they […]
On Friday night against the Cavaliers, Darrell Arthur shoved Dion Waiters near the end of the first quarter during a fast break as Waiters went up for a layup. The league has suspended Arthur one game for the move, and he will serve that suspension Sunday when the Nuggets take on the Portland Trail Blazers. Watch […]
Note: I’m switching to more of a free-form recap format as the general nature of the game and the team at large demand it. Individual grades and analysis of the micro problems fly in the face of the overwhelming macro issues currently plaguing the team. We’ll return to to the rapid reaction format next time.
Welcome to the Reader Comment of the Week, a recurring series where we’ll highlight voices from Roundball Mining Company community found in our forum, comments section, in e-mails and through Twitter rants. This week’s comment comes courtesy of Charlie: It feels to me like the Nuggets are still in the preseason, starting from absolute zero, […]
The Nuggets were not in this game from the first whistle. This looks like how I expect the 76ers to look in late March. Things are bad and it’s hard to even imagine a light at the end of the tunnel. More depressing notes below… Denver Nuggets 109 Final Recap | Box Score 131 Sacramento […]
The Nuggets shoot 39% en route to their second straight loss and are now 1-2 on the season. Check out the grades below and a few of my thoughts on what’s going wrong. Hint: it’s everything.
According to The Denver Post’s Christopher Dempsey, the Denver Nuggets are expected to pick up the final year of Timofey Mozgov’s contract making him a restricted free agent after next season. Dempsey also reminds fans that Arron Afflalo has a player option after this season and will become an unrestricted free agent whether he chooses […]
