Los Angeles Clippers 106 Final Recap | Box Score 94 Denver Nuggets Danilo Gallinari, SF 29 MIN | 2-8 FG | 4-4 FT | 1 REB | 4 AST | 10 PTS | -3 The Clippers’ athletic wings did a good job keeping Gallo outside the lane. The Nuggets looked to get Andre Iguodala going […]
As we continue along our #NuggetsRank countdown we arrive at a player whose combination of past performance, inconsistency and potential makes him very difficult to evaluate. When combining all those factors, JaVale McGee was voted as the fifth best player on the Denver Nuggets.
As we progress through #NuggetsRank our next player is the physical manifestation of the stats versus scouting debate. Corey Brewer is a player who does almost nothing well that can be quantified by statistics, but he has managed to be ranked ninth on Denver’s stacked roster.
The Denver Nuggets will kick off their 2012 preseason campaign against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, Oct. 6, at 8:30 p.m. in Las Vegas. Because the Colorado Rapids are playing at 7 p.m., the game will not be televised on Altitude. NBATV will be airing a replay of the Dallas Mavericks preseason game in […]
Training camp officially starts today, hot on the heels of media day where the Nuggets announced they’ve finalized their 17-man roster with guards Anthony Carter and Ben Uzoh. The Uzoh addition is an interesting one. His name was one of many New Jersey Nets linked to Denver in the early days of the Melo saga. […]
Anthony Randolph tops the trio of enigmatic seven-footers on Denver’s roster at no. 10 in our #NuggetsRank series. It’s going to surprise a lot of Nuggets fans that he ranks ahead of incumbent centers Kosta Koufos and Timofey Mozgov despite being the least likely to receive playing time among all three.
Rounding out the bottom five of our #NuggetsRank countdown is third-year center Timofey Mozgov. Although he showed tangible improvement in terms of production, Mozgov never found a consistent role in an up-and-down sophomore season with the Nuggets. He now enters the final year of his contract as one of the biggest unknowns on the team.
For over a month our writers have been in discussion about an upcoming series that ranks the Denver Nuggets from 1-15. In conjunction with the current ESPN #NBArank, we’ve come up with our own formula for ranking the Denver Nuggets (it’s actually not that complicated). After adding up all our writers’ scores and fielding everyone’s […]
The Italian national team wrapped up a very successful summer with an 83-58 win over Belarus yesterday, concluding Eurobasket qualifying with a perfect 8-0 record. Danilo Gallinari led the way with 16 points and 12 rebounds to cap off an impressive stint with the national team, which won 8 straight games despite lacking Gallo’s fellow […]
Jessica Redfield Gawhi’s passion for sports was undeniable. Before being senselessly gunned down in the Aurora theater shooting, she was pursuing her dream of being becoming a sports reporter and worked as an intern and Altitude Sports & Entertainment. Passionate and smart, Jessica always took time to help those in need. Prior to her death, […]
With training camp a little more than three weeks away, the Nuggets’ 2012-2013 roster appears to be set with Thursday afternoon’s announcement that the team has signed second-round pick Quincy Miller to a multi-year contract. Terms weren’t disclosed, but it appears to be a 3-year deal at the minimum. As is standard with a lot […]
With Denver’s roster currently standing at 14 players, an important deadline looms next week concerning the Nuggets’ final roster spot. According to the excellent CBA FAQ from Larry Coon (already updated for this season), second round picks must be offered a contract by September 6th or they become free agents. This of course has great […]
After missing all of the warm up games heading into the qualification round of EuroBasket 2013 Danilo Gallinari played in Italy’s opening contest against Portugal. Gallo compiled ten points and nine rebounds in only 15 minutes as part of Italy’s 97-45 victory. It is very promising to see Gallinari back on the court and performing […]
Yesterday, Drew Goodman and Scott Hastings of Drew & Scott on Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan had an extensive interview with Nuggets executive Masai Ujiri, who was in Houston, where JaVale McGee is currently training with Hakeem Olajuwon. (On Twitter, please follow Drew here: @ROOTSPORTS_DG, and Scott here: @ScottHastings). They talked about the Andre Iguodala […]
On March 19, 2008, then Denver Nuggets guard Allen Iverson finally got his first opportunity to return to the place of his NBA roots and face the 76ers in Philadelphia. After having been traded for Andre Miller, Joe Smith and two first round picks in December 2006 to join Carmelo Anthony in Denver, his dramatic […]
Ready for something a little different? We’ll continue our extensive coverage of the Iguodala acquisition soon, but the long-awaited conclusion to the Dwight Howard saga presents a great opportunity to change gears a bit and recap the recently concluded 2012 adidas Nations. As I mentioned in my earlier reports, this year’s Nations had plenty of […]
First of all, what was Orlando thinking? The centerpiece of the long anticipated Dwight Howard trade ends up being Arron Afflalo? Yikes. Thanks to Orlando’s generosity the three other teams involved in the reported four team deal that will be finalized later today all received much more than they gave. Obviously the Lakers are thrilled […]
When the news of a potential four team trade that would send Dwight Howard to Los Angeles involving the Denver Nuggets first surfaced this afternoon, I was skeptical. Generally when a rumor involving the Nuggets gets out, it is a sure sign that the Nuggets have moved on and the trade is not happening. Of […]
One of my favorite moments of the 2012 adidas Nations took place just as the camp was wrapping up, as the college counselors completed their final scrimmages and prepared to move on towards their NBA goals. Arron Afflalo showed up and actually played in the final game, pitting himself against collegiate stars like Andre Roberson, […]
