I caught up with Coby Karl following the Timberwolves win over Cleveland Cavaliers at the Las Vegas Summer League.

I caught up with Corey Brewer at the Las Vegas Summer League Wednesday night and he was kind enough to answer a couple of questions for Roundball Mining Company.

As the Nuggets walked off the floor following their first Summer League game In Las Vegas, few players were more bothered by the loss than Chukwudiebere Maduabum, the only member of Denver’s roster who didn’t enter the game.
Summer league is all about experimentation. In a setting where wins and losses aren’t exactly of the utmost importance, coaches are using the opportunity to throw a bunch of darts at the wall in order to see what sticks. While the results are a mixed bag that typically don’t lead you to any concrete conclusions, […]
The Denver Nuggets have agreed to terms with Evan Fournier whom they selected with the 20th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Following the draft Masai Ujiri spoke of how the Fournier appealed to the Nuggets as a player they could stash overseas for a year or two. The fact that they signed him brings […]

I look forward to the NBA Draft every June. I love it. All 30 teams belly up to the craps table, some will win big and some will lose big.
