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 >>
Our long regional nightmare is over.

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 >>
Nenê.Two weeks back, we wrote that the Nuggets-Thunder playoff series would be a war, and that prediction was certainly borne out by last night's 107-103 OKC victory. Credit for the Thunder win goes to superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, aided by referee Steve Javie -- in part bec ... More >>

Hurr durr, I'm angry!Back when Boston Celtics power forward Glen "Big Baby" Davis was just 9 years old and a freakishly large 5'6", 160 lbs., he was too big to play pee-wee basketball with kids his own age, so he was sent to play with the seniors. Because he was so young, his more seasoned te ... More >>
Last night, the Nuggets failed to secure George Karl's 1,000th win vs. the Boston Celtics in part because Carmelo Anthony sat out, reportedly due to cold symptoms and right-knee inflammation. Is it coincidental that these issues flared up the same night reports suggested that the Nugs have f ... More >>
Lately, there's been no public progress in trading Carmelo Anthony, making it difficult for fans to commit to the Nuggets despite the team's recent victory over Kobe Bryant's Lakers. Meanwhile, Melo's still sending mixed signals over whether he prefers to move to a winner or ink with a strugg ... More >>
Carmelo.We keep being told that the four-way trade to send Carmelo Anthony to the New Jersey Nets is dead -- but it may have some life in it yet. Why else would a Nuggets scout be eyeballing Nets rookie Derrick Favors, reportedly one of the keys to a possible deal?
