Examining Denver’s reluctance as NJ trade looms

The New Jersey Nets are once again on the verge of a multi-team trade that would land them Carmelo Anthony. Only this time, it appears to make more sense for all parties involved.

Dissecting and Digesting the Proposed Carmelo Anthony Trade to the New Jersey Nets

How close is Carmelo Anthony to becoming a member of the New Jersey Nets?  Close enough that the Nets and Pistons “were surprised on Sunday night when Denver allowed the players included in the proposed trade to play in a game against the New Orleans Hornets.”  That sounds like a deal that is all but […]

Carmelo Anthony Mired in a Slump: Denver Nuggets 98 – Charlotte Bobcats 100

Box Score | Highlights Carmelo Anthony may have only shot 8-21 from the field on Tuesday night against the Charlotte Bobcats, but he actually increased his shooting percentage over his previous eleven games from 36.2% to 36.4%.  I was tempted to concoct a post about how efficient Carmelo had been to start the season until […]

Nuggets 120, Knicks 118…whew, that was a close one!

Box Score | HoopData.com Game Stats | Highlights I’m going to start off by stating the obvious…there is NO reason this game should have been this close. NONE, whatsoever.

Nuggets shoot the lights out in Dallas to beat the Mavs

Question: How do you get revenge against the team you lost to by one point in your own building only three nights ago? Going 13-for-21 from three-point land (judges…), yes, that is an acceptable answer! The Nuggets three-point shooting, coupled with some timely defensive stops and steals down the stretch, propelled them to a 103-92 […]

HoopData.com Box Score | Highlights There is a reason why I frequently watch games twice before I write anything about them.  I was bound and determined to blast the Nuggets for their shoddy zone offense.  I was going to proclaim the players were completely unprepared to deal with the Mavericks zone defense despite the fact the […]

What to expect from the Nuggets…not named Billups or Anthony

Ok Nuggets fans, the opening tip is less than 24 hours away and number 15 is still in a Nuggets uniform. Whether or not he stays in powder blue and gold for the entire season is a debate for another day; for now lets look at what to expect from each player this season. When […]
