Most identical twins will go to great lengths to convince you that while they may look the same, inside they are very different. But while the Sklar Brothers actually looked quite different at Comedy Works on Friday night -- with Randy in plaid shirt and beard, and Jason in black tie and grandpa gla ... More >>
Cash Money Records, the label founded by Bryan "Baby/Birdman" Williams in 1991, rose to prominence in the hip-hop scene with its signing of the Hot Boys, consisting of B.G., Young Turk, Lil' Wayne and Juvenile. Since then, the group has become one of rap's premier labels, having piggybacked Lil Wayn ... More >>
The NBA trade deadline is thirteen days away -- just enough time to quell that gnawing feeling in the gut telling you that, well, Kevin Garnett is old, and he has a lot of money left on that two-year contract, but he sure would shore up that interior defense. And, he would instantly be the most inte ... More >>
Almost as shocking as the DUI arrest of Todd Helton, mainstay of the Colorado Rockies, was how blotto he looked in the mug shot he earned with his bust. But how does it stack up to the most memorable athletes' mug shots of all time? Find out by eyeballing our top twenty collection, featuring a whopp ... More >>
Carmelo Anthony.In today's Denver Post, coach George Karl talks about persuading Carmelo Anthony to stay a Nugget. But no one believes that'll happen -- probably even Karl. Which is why trade scenarios keep popping up -- most of them involving the Chicago Bulls, who seemingly have the most to ... More >>
One hot property.The Summer of LeBron is almost upon us, and NBA fans know that once free agents LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh settle on their new basketball homes, the focus will immediately shift to next summer -- when the Nuggets' Carmelo Anthony will be the valedictorian of a m ...

Rudy, Rudy, Rudy...Local blogs want you -- to read them. Square State blogger Something The Dog Said recently saw the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas special and concluded the the show is sexist. Guess Santa's sleigh was pulled by male chauvinist pigs. Allen Iverson loved returning ... More >>
Allen Iverson is expected to suit up tonight as the Philadelphia 76ers, his once and future squad, take on your Denver Nuggets -- one of three squads to sign him after he left Philly in 2006. And despite the negativity surrounding Iverson after he did the Brett Favre dance (retiring, then promptly ... More >>
Allen Iverson stands as proof that Denver brings out the best in people. When he was in Philadelphia, he was clearly a brilliant talent, but he could also be cranky and petulant, as demonstrated in this classic news-conference meltdown about missing a practice. Denver fans were braced for more of ... More >>
A.I. during his Denver days.A blog last week headlined "Allen Iverson's Advice to America's Youth: 'Don't Try to be Like Allen Iverson'" featured an interview in which the former Nugget told ex-teammate Eric Snow that his desire for a championship outweighed considerations such as whether he' ...

With prodigy J.R. Smith suspended for the first seven games of the 2009-2010 season thanks to his guilty plea in a New Jersey crash that killed one of his friends (and for which Smith served jail time), the Nuggets could use some help at guard. And a prominent one's available: Allen Iverson. Not t ... More >>
Arron Afflalo. The Nuggets' loss of Dahntay Jones to a free-agent deal with the Indiana Pacers hurt, and not just because Kobe Bryant grew to despise him over the course of the Western Conference Finals this year. His toughness and aggressiveness were just what the Nugs need to become a perennial p ... More >>
Turns out Denver has a much smaller role in Imagine That than we originally thought. As you may recall, three weeks worth of filming for the Eddie Murphy flick took place right here in our Mile High home. And although you can still see a helicopter shot of the city and catch a glimpse of Melo ta ... More >>
The Nuggets lost by two points last night in a very close game. Why? Well, a big part of it was unusually poor free-throw shooting from Chauncey Billups and company. My suggestion, then, is that the rest of the team start wearing Carmelo Anthony's super-phresh shooting sleeve. You know, that sky- ... More >>
A Flickr photoKobe Bryant and Kenyon Martin -- or a reasonable facsimile. As a lifelong Nuggets fan, I've grown accustomed over the years to waiting for the team to blow leads. But I don't think I've ever been so zen about the Nugs as last night, during their series-clinching victory over the Dalla ... More >>
A Flickr photoChauncey Billups takes on Dallas earlier this season. Admit it: When you heard the Nuggets were getting rid of defensive stalwart Marcus Camby prior to the start of the season in exchange for virtually nothing, and when the team swapped Allen Iverson for Chauncey Billups a few games i ...

On Tuesday, we let you know that Colorado's DJ Sabotage and Hypeman P were headed to Los Angeles to represent the Box State at Scion's 2008 Hypeman Contest as a finalist. So what happened?

Ten Denver sports moments we'll remember (sometimes against our wishes) from 2008.10.

He's not t ... More >>
These are good times for the Denver Nuggets. The squad is playing team basketball, and the results have been breathtaking at times: Witness last night's 132-93 dismantling of the Toronto Raptors. No wonder Carmelo Anthony is so gleeful in an interview with YoungHollywood.com held at the November 20 ... More >>
Bye-bye, A.I. So the big NBA trade yesterday happened right here in Denver: Allen Iverson for, most notably, hometowner Chauncey Billups and former Nugget Antonio McDyess (plus Cheikh Samb). Nothing against Billups, who if not as good an all-around player as Iverson, at least has a good narrative ... More >>

So the Denver Nuggets have told Carmelo Anthony's agent, Calvin Andrews, that they have no intention of trading him. Fine. That's the right move, since there's no way they would have gotten equal value for him. Keeping Allen Iverson for another season makes sense, too, for the same reason: The Nugs ... More >>
On April 29, the day after the Denver Nuggets were sent packing from the NBA playoffs by the Los Angeles Lakers, Channel 4 morning anchor Brooke Wagner expressed satisfaction that the previous night's game had been exciting and close. And indeed, the fact that the contest hadn't turned into another ... More >>
The March 12 game between the Denver Nuggets and the Memphis Grizzlies was never going to be much of a contest. Sure, the Nuggets have been erratic throughout the 2007-2008 campaign, showing championship-quality mettle when facing first-rate opponents on one night only to fall flat against lesser ta ...

The Denver Nuggets face off against the Boston Celtics.
Great basketball teams often take on the personality of their star players. Without a dominant big man, the Dallas Mavericks are more of a perimeter shooting team keyed by Dirk Nowitzki. Steve Nash pushes the Phoenix Suns up and down the court. Tim Duncan leads the Spurs by playing solid D and scowl ... More >>
With the Rockies in the World Series (it still feels weird to type that) and the Broncos two last second field goals from 0-5, Denver’s sports hierarchy is in disarray. But lost somewhere between the praise and the panic are the Colorado Avalanche and the Denver Nuggets, the two teams usually on t ... More >>

Forget the Democratic National Convention -- Danny and Nina are coming to Denver! And the whole world's watching.
Since arriving in Denver, new Nugget Allen Iverson has been on his best behavior -- but his bad-boy reputation remains intact, as the folks at Saturday Night Live understand. The venerable show's January 13 edition opened in typical fashion -- with a routine needling George W. Bush. Will Forte's be ... More >>
Allen Iverson is The Answer to blizzard boredom.
Pick up any paper, check any website, talk to anyone at a sports bar, and you'll find yourself inundated with opinions about Carmelo Anthony. He's nothing but a thug. He's misunderstood. You can take the NBA player out of the street but you can't take the street out of the NBA player. I heard he's m ... More >>
