It seems to some of us Gen Xers that celebrating Earth Day -- and any other holiday -- just ain't the same as it used to be back in our decade of Smashing Pumpkins, store-bought tie-dye sundresses and lesbian chic. But if we learned anything from surviving the '90s, it's that trends are fluid -- we ... More >>
Video below.The term "suicide by cop" has become a well-known phrase among fans of TV police procedurals and the like. And at this point, an officer-involved shooting that took place yesterday afternoon near a Kmart on West Evans appears to be an extremely literal example of the phenomenon.

Kenyon Martin.Last month, we told you that Nugget Kenyon Martin's house was up for sale, adding to speculation that he wouldn't return to the team. Remember that one of our first clues Carmelo Anthony planned to leave Denver was when he put his house on the market, a transaction that ultimate ... More >>
Martha Stewart.Martha Stewart drew blood on Father's Day. Or at least a glass patio tables marketed under the Martha Stewart Living brand did.

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 >>
Mr. Hilario's play is far from hilarious.Wish I could say I was surprised by the way the Nuggets' playoff run -- more like a playoff stagger -- ended Friday against the Utah Jazz. But our April 26 post "Nuggets Bound for First-Round Playoffs Loss -- and Deserve It" laid out the scenario: a ga ... More >>
"You can be damn sure I wasn't smiling then."We've told you about Kenyon Martin's anger over an April Fools' Day prank at his expense: J.R. Smith's driver, Laquan Johnson, filled K-Mart's Range Rover with buttered popcorn, prompting a wig-out by Kenyon and an "LMAO" tweet from Smith. It's on ... More >>
"Behind this smile is fury!"J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin have reportedly kissed and made up after an April Fools' Day gag fell flat. As we noted yesterday, Smith's driver, Laquan Johnson, filled Martin's Range Rover with buttered popcorn, prompting a profanity-laced outburst from K-Mart and ... More >>
"I'm relaxed. Shouldn't you be, too?"Denver produces blogs on a pretty regular basis. Here's proof. Yesterday, following the Nuggets' dispiriting 1-4 road trip, Carmelo Anthony tweeted, "To all the nuggets fans and my fans no need to panic. so just calm down and relax. lol." Problem is, Andr ...

When the sun rose this morning at 6:58 a.m., it shed its light on one of the weirdest American traditions around: millions of people scrambling for discount deals at big box stores. In Denver, this eerie sight was visible from Target and Best Buy to Bass Pro, Kohl's and Kmart. And while Blac ... More >>
In the past few days, Mark Cuban has been dancing without the stars. During last night's late newscast, 9News' Drew Soicher said that if the Nuggets manage to blow their series against the Dallas Mavericks, blamecasters will suggest that Mavs owner Mark Cuban got into their heads via his antics -- ...

(UPDATE: The video above, which I just saw on Deadspin, seems to support Cuban's thug theory). Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has finally apologized to Kenyon Martin and Kenyon Martin's mom -- sort of. Cuban, who apparently called Mrs. K-Mart's son a "thug" after game three, writes on his blog this ... More >>

Kenyon Martin. Kenyon Martin was among the most-animated players during the scrum that developed in the seconds after the Nuggets' controversial game-three win over the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday, for reasons that weren't readily apparent to TV viewers.

In a blog published after the Nuggets pummeled the Dallas Mavericks in game one of their playoff series, I suggested that a hard foul Kenyon Martin laid on the Mavs' Dirk Nowitzki set the stage for victory. Now, the NBA has levied at $25,000 fine against K-Mart for this shot across Dirk's bow -- and ... More >>
The Denver Nuggets tip off their second-round playoff series against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday afternoon -- and their success will likely hinge on the sort of defensive play Kenyon Martin has been bringing to the court of late. Martin was hurt for on and off for many of his early years with the ... 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 ...

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.

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.

Why do Mexicans have so many kids?
Do Denver Nuggets fans want to say goodbye to Kenyon Martin -- or settle for the simple getdafucouttahere now that he's injured again. It's tough to tell after reading The Denver Post's Marc Spears front page sports story on K-Mart yesterday. The story, headlined "Kenyon Plans for Someplace Like Ho ... More >>
