The Nuggets have made reaching the playoffs only to lose in the first round a tradition during the George Karl era. That was all supposed to change this year, though. Most wins in a single season since the Nugs joined the NBA. A third seed. Home court advantage against a team -- the Golden State War ... More >>
It's been an exciting NBA regular season for a lot of reasons, including the Miami Heat's 27-game winning streak and the epic battle between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant for the scoring title. But don't overlook the Denver Nuggets, who had one of the best season's in franchise history. The team ... More >>
The All-Star break is over, Kenneth Faried manimaled his way to some long-overdue national attention, and fastest team in the NBA West got a few days off to recharge its batteries. After the Nuggets beat the Celtics last night to avenge that frustrating triple OT loss heading into the break, it's of ... More >>
The 2012-13 Nuggets season has finally arrived. After pushing the Lakers to seven games in the first round of the NBA Playoffs last year and obtaining All-Star guard Andre Iguodala via trade this summer, fans are excited as they've ever been for the boys in blue and yellow -- and the Nuggets certain ... More >>
New Nugget Andre Iguodala met the press yesterday, and pretty much every word out of his mouth -- including his interest in a long-term deal -- reassured fans that the move was a positive one. And the Nuggets have wasted no time in promoting their latest star, featuring him in a wacky new comic enti ... More >>
Denver blog posts are fire-resistant. Denver Stiffs' Nate Timmons on the Nuggets signing Andre Miller to a three-year deal for what he sees as a reasonable price. Colorado Pols: If Obamacare survives, could one of Jon Caldara's future children die? The Redheaded Slut: I pierced a girl (and I like ... More >>
The Nuggets have the twentieth pick in tonight's NBA draft. Yawn? Well, last year, the Nugs pulled off one of the great draft steals in recent memory when they snapped up Kenneth Faried with the 22nd slot. Could they repeat that feat? It'll be tough, since this year's draft class isn't graded as ste ... More >>
Early in the fourth quarter of game seven against the Los Angeles Lakers Saturday night, your Denver Nuggets held a four point lead over a team with two Hall of Famers on it. That moment showed the peak of the Nuggets' season and potential. The Lakers went on to win the game and thus, the series. Th ... More >>
No denying it: After the Nuggets lost game four of their playoffs series against the Lakers at home on Sunday night, I thought they were doomed to another 4-1 first-round exit -- and I wasn't the only one. But stunningly, Denver managed to beat L.A. 102-99 in what was expected to be a close-out cont ... More >>
Where there's life, there's hope -- but the Denver Nuggets don't have much of either right now. After making an energetic stand on Friday night to notch a 99-84 victory over the heavily favored L.A. Lakers at the Pepsi Center, the Nugs failed to build on this success, falling to the Lake Show 92-88 ... More >>
After the Nuggets' desultory game one loss to the Lakers in their first-round playoffs matchup, there were legitimate questions about whether Denver even belonged in the same arena as Kobe Bryant and his L.A. crew. Game two was considerably less humiliating, with the Nugs making the Angelenos work a ... More >>
Last week, our Kyle Garratt assembled a list of five reasons why the Nuggets might upset the Lakers -- but during Sunday's humiliating 103-88 defeat in L.A., there appeared to be none. The Nugs' desultory performance was epitomized by Ty Lawson's awful game, but he was hardly the sole Denverite at ... More >>
Kobe Bryant has three more championships by himself than the entire Nuggets roster. The Los Angeles Lakers have three of the best twenty players in basketball. The Lakers are 26-7 at home this year, second best in the league. Given that, will the Nuggets beat the Lakers in the first round of the pla ... More >>
During the Nuggets' embarrassing loss to the third worst team in the Western Conference on Saturday, JaVale McGee added a ridiculous highlight to Deadspin's collection of mostly awful (but sometimes great) feats. Oh, did we forget to mention that Deadspin has an entire section dedicated to the boneh ... More >>
No question that the Nuggets' 118-117 overtime victory against the Atlanta Hawks last night was exciting: I left the Pepsi Center feeling simultaneously elated and in need of emergency medical care. But while the contest certainly spotlighted many of Denver's attributes, it also left me wondering i ... More >>
Denver blog posts know how to make friends. Denver Stiffs links to a Fox Sports piece in which Andre Miller says he's unhappy with his backup role for the Nuggets. And I was unhappy when he couldn't make a shot against the Hornets. Denver Egotist: Mando-Matic has the retouch. Colorado Pols calls ... More >>
Ty Lawson.If you're not a hardcore NBA fan in Denver you might not have noticed that the league hasn't played any games yet. There was this whole thing about millionaires and billionaires arguing about how to chop up a few billion dollars. A quick synopsis: it was boring and tedious and then ... More >>
The NBA lockout was like a pregnancy. There was a lot of irrational screaming and finger-pointing, and of course, labor pains. And the entire time, all anyone wanted to see was the baby. In this case, the baby is a season, which was born very early Saturday morning and appears to be alive and health ... More >>
Nenê.Nenê is among the most controversial Nuggets of the decade -- an undeniably talented player who never quite lived up to the hype but remains a valuable commodity. Now, however, he's opted out of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent. Does that mean the Nuggets will g ... More >>
Kenneth Faried.Last night's NBA draft didn't look to be an eventful one with the Denver Nuggets, what with the team drafting way down at the number 22 position and the prospect of a lockout making franchises cautious about big trades. But the Nugs made a splash anyhow with the selection of Mo ... More >>
