Denver blogs are good sports. Purple Row's Jordan Freemyer celebrates the Rockies' first win of the season. And it only took them two tries! Denver Stiffs' Andrew Feinstein thinks Evan Fournier needs to have another big game if the Nuggets are going to top the Jazz tonight. Mile High Report's Kyl ... More >>
On Saturday night, the CU Buffs played pretty much the same game as in their previous two wins: a very good first thirty minutes, an iffy last ten. But because they didn't have a big lead this time, they fell to the Baylor Bears 80-63 in the NCAA men's basketball tourney. The loss denied them a trip ... 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 >>
Those are boos, David.There's no LeBron in the group, or Kobe, or Dwight Howard, or even a Kevin Durant. In the upcoming NBA draft, Ian Thomsen writes on SI.com, there's no standout star, and there's very little certainty about who will be chosen when. To clear up all the confusion, I'd like ... More >>
Alec Burks.If the NBA Draft plays out for Alec Burks the way the CU Buffs' season did, he'll be drafted in the middle of the second round. After all, the Buffs received a March Madness snub that had ESPN's Dick Vitale screaming something about Scarlett Johanssen. But assuming another injustic ... More >>
Big pics below.With the Denver Nuggets' playoff run done, the Nuggets Dancers are gearing up for next season with a series of classes to ready prospective new members for the rigorous audition process. To get you in the mindset for the next get-together, a nutrition and work-out session at 7 ... More >>
Nenê.Can't wait for the NBA playoffs to begin this weekend? Neither can the Denver Nuggets. In fact, the team would be a lot better off simply forfeiting to the Utah Jazz in tonight's regular season finale than playing it, given the nagging injury issues plaguing the squad.
Video below.One of the many Carmelo Anthony trade scenarios would have brought Utah's Andrei Kirilenko to Denver. Obviously, that deal never happened -- and good thing given Kirilenko's missed buzzer beater from two inches away last night, which handed the Nugs a 103-101 win. In our post yes ... More >>
Big pics below.BYU's Jimmer Fredette has become a bona fide b-ball star -- which means photos of cheerleader-girlfriend Whitney Wonnacott have started popping up on sites such as Frathouse Sports and The Big Lead. Find photo examples below. But what these posts don't mention is that Wonnacot ... More >>
Carmelo.A new partner has emerged in the New York Knicks continuing quest to obtain the services of Carmelo Anthony: the Minnesota Timberwolves. Reports are circulating about a three-way deal that could happen as early as mid-week -- although there are a lot of gaps that would have to be fil ... More >>
George Karl.Line up, you three Denver blog posts. Denver Stiffs' Andrew Feinstein welcomes George Karl back for the Nug's regular season debut against the Jazz and predicts big things -- so long as Melo sticks around. Colorado Pols: Has Michael Bennet edged ahead of Ken Buck? Denver Egotis ... More >>
Carmelo.After a trade that would have sent Carmelo Anthony to New Jersey fell through (and Chicago re-signed Joakim Noah), Denver fans began to wonder if Anthony might remain in Denver for a while longer -- even as other observers debated whether the Nuggets would be better off without Melo. ...

Carmelo.With the Denver Nuggets' media day upon us, the Carmelo Anthony trade rumors are as fierce as a tsunami -- and sometimes contradictory. There are some reports that a potential four-way trade involving the New Jersey Nets is all but dead. But if so, there are plenty of other possibili ... More >>
Carmelo.Lookit these three Denver blog posts. Denver Stiffs' Andrew Feinstein links to the latest Melo trade rumor -- he'd go to New Jersey, with the Nuggets getting the Nets' Derrick Favors, Utah's Andrei Kirilenko and draft picks aplenty. Interesting, anyhow. 5280's Michael de Yoanna note ... More >>
An unhappy J.R.Update, 3:33 p.m.: Read it below the original 11:47 a.m. item. The Nuggets' J.R. Smith had a rough season, spending more time in the doghouse than outside it. But the doghouse may have been safer than the Cherry Hills Country Club mansion he's been renting. Burglars messed wit ... 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 >>
Ty Lawson's probably not planning a move to Salt Lake City anytime soon.The old warning to pro athletes about not providing bulletin-board material predates the online version of bulletin boards -- which may explain why, last night, Ty Lawson posted a link to an audio snippet on his Twitter f ... More >>
Carmelo had help last night -- but will it continue?In a Monday post in which I argued that the Nuggets were bound for a first-round playoff loss, I predicted that they'd win game five at home -- which they did last night, 116 to 102. The results were enough to prompt upbeat comments from KE ... More >>
"I know it. Now I've just got to do it."As the Nuggets stumble toward what looks to be a surefire first-round playoff loss to the Utah Jazz, J.R. Smith is turning to his usual soapbox: His Twitter feed. That's not always a good thing, given criticism of his allegedly gang-friendly spelling l ... More >>
Carlos Boozer contemplates how good it'll feel to make the Nuggets eat shit.The 2009-2010 season started out so promisingly for the Denver Nuggets that a lot of us looked at a Western Conference Finals rematch with the L.A. Lakers as a virtual lock. That's all over -- and not just because th ... More >>
"Just wait, Joe. You're gonna miss me."We've been panning for Denver blogging gold. Here's three posts we sifted out. In a fan post on Mile High Report, Joe Medina calls April 19 "a day that will live in infamy" -- because Tony Scheffler's departure means the Broncos' Mike Shanahan era is of ... More >>
A Flickr photoHow did this guy wind up in the Nuggets' lineup?Yes, I, too, was excited by the Nuggets' victory in game one of their playoff series against the Utah Jazz on Saturday. But even in a thirteen-point win, there were danger signs about a lack of defense -- which wound up costing th ... More >>
Giving credit where credit is due.J.R. Smith has gotten into trouble with his tweets, whether it's been the Denver Post hinting that his spelling might have hidden gang code, an unwise decision to call out Kobe Bryant, or an "LMAO" aimed at a very pissed-off Kenyon Martin. But after the Nugg ... More >>
Carmelo will have to do the heavy lifting -- as usual.Tomorrow night, the Nuggets open the playoffs at home against the Utah Jazz -- but the squad's performance down the stretch didn't exactly inspire confidence. For much of the season, the Nugs looked like a lock for the number two slot, be ... More >>
Eyeballs, meet local blogs that'll treat your pupils properly. The Nugg Doctor's Nick Sclafani says Melo "revoked Paul Millsap's player card with a posterizing dunk" in last night's season-opening win over the Utah Jazz. Get started on that paperwork right away. Alan Gottlieb at Education News Co ... More >>
A Flickr photoWe feel like dancing, too. Right now, fans of pro sports in Denver have a difficult task -- figuring out how not to spontaneously orgasm at inappropriate times (like during fully clothed meetings with the boss) due to the magical confluence of seasons involving all the big-four ...

A Flickr photoKyle Korver and that cute little behind of his. Where to put advice about good blogs? In our tips jar. After hitting his eighth three pointer against the Utah Jazz last night, J.R. Smith "proceeded to spin around [Kyle] Korver in celebratory fashion, and slap him on the ass like a ki ... More >>
Other than maybe being the opening act for someone like Jay-Z or Kanye West, what could be better than opening for the Denver Nuggets? The folks at Jewell Tyme Music (home to artists F.O.E., 800 the Jewell, Karma and others) will join Paradox, Maddnis and Sista Soul as pre-game hosts at the Denver N ... More >>
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 >>
In 1985, Westword published its second Best of Denver issue, a celebration of the city that saluted everything from the Best Cheeseburger at My Brother’s Bar to the Best Bronco (John Elway, now in his second year with the team), to another future landmark, the Best Addition to the Skyline (Herbert ...

Now that the San Antonio Spurs have cakewalked to their fourth NBA championship in nine years, it's time for Denver Post columnist and resident psychic Mark Kiszla to tuck into a big helping of crow. Way, way back in April, the Denver Nuggets shook up the smart money by snatching the first game fr ... More >>
