Jusuf Nurkic did something truly touching for a group of Special Olympic athletes

Athletes are used to giving autographs, but Jusuf Nurkic turned the tables in a heartwarming gesture. The Nuggets center joined teammates on Thursday in giving some basketball lessons on dribbling, shooting and other skills to a group of 150 Special Olympic athletes.

Nuggets need some shooters this off-season

Interim head coach Melvin Hunt has done a hell of job making the Denver Nuggets watchable again, but for all his efforts, this team is still capable of throwing up stinkers like Wednesday night’s 99-85 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. How, after blowing out the Orlando Magic on the road and hanging tough against playoff teams like the Houston Rockets and Miami Heat, can the Nuggets...

Denver Nuggets: The race for worst

The NBA draft lottery puts teams in the association in a precarious spot when the season is winding down to its end. There are the the roughly 20 to 21 teams that are trying to make it into the post season. That is the way many fans like to see their teams working, clawing at every scrap of possibility to make it into the playoffs. But that leaves about 9 teams that are for sure...

What Classifies as a Quitter in the World of Sports?

I have been hearing the “Q” word allot lately in sports. A few weeks ago head coach of the Denver Nuggets Brian Shaw was fired from the team after managing just a 20-39 season record this season. This comes after just two seasons under Shaw, in which he took over for George Karl a long tenured respected coach around the NBA who led the Nuggets to 57-25 and coach of the year honors...

Danilo Gallinari scores career-best 40 to lead Nuggets past Magic

  Danilo Gallinari made the best night of his career sound as easy as a day in the Florida sun. ''It was one of those nights when the basket looks like a swimming pool. It's pretty big up there,'' Gallinari said after scoring a career-high 40 points Sunday in the Denver Nuggets' 119-100 victory over the Orlando Magic.

Are the Denver Nuggets trying to tank?

You’ve probably heard by now that the Denver Nuggets, they of the 12th place record in the Western Conference, opted to rest three starters for their game against the Memphis Grizzlies Monday night. Ty Lawson, Danilo Gallinari and Kenneth Faried all were in street clothes as the Nuggets lost 92-81. Losing the game was, of course, the point of the entire exercise, but it was still...

Nuggets resting Lawson, Faried and Gallinari – not coaches or players choice

The Denver Nuggets aren’t fooling around when it comes to this tanking thing that has become an epidemic in the NBA. Despite being 6-2 under interim coach Melvin Hunt, the team, apparently, has decided that it would be in the franchise’s best interest to rest their young starters. Three #Nuggets to be rested tonight: Ty Lawson, Kenneth Faried, Danilo Gallinari. They will NOT...

An Incomplete List of Potential New Denver Nuggets Coaches

The Denver Nuggets fired head coach Brian Shaw on Tuesday. Not long after the Nuggets started ending their huddles by counting down until the end of the season (they of course denied that was what they were doing).

Denver Nuggets: End of “Shaw” era

The Denver Nuggets decided early Tuesday morning to fire head coach Brian Shaw, who was in his second year with the team.

Denver Nuggets fire Brian Shaw

In a less-than-surprising move, the Denver Nuggets have fired head coach Brian Shaw. The team is currently 20-39 on the season and simply hasn’t played inspired basketball this season. That came to a head recently when it was reported that players are breaking team huddles with a countdown to the end of the season. Definitely not a good sign. Including this season, Shaw was a...

Nuggets break team huddle with countdown to end of season

The Nuggets came into this season with optimism. Kenneth Faried had a good summer with Team USA and signed a big contract extension.

Sixers Rare Buyers at the Deadline, Acquire JaVale McGee

Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie has a plan. It might be a plan that forced the team into a two-year stretch that remains among the worst in NBA history. But it’s still a plan.

It is no secret that the Denver Nuggets are on the front lines of trade rumors this year, having reportedly been shopping players like Wilson Chandler and Arron Afflalo around, but all that talk means nothing if no team makes an offer or accepts one the Nuggets are asking for.
