The Denver Nuggets have become a laughingstock

The Denver Nuggets hired Brian Shaw, the highly sought-after coaching candidate who was an assistant with the Lakers under Phil Jackson, to his first head-coaching job in the NBA last summer with high hopes. At the time, Denver was a team brimming with potential and young, explosive player after another. The roster composition is still basically the same as it was when Shaw signed...

Nuggets starting to turn a corner

The mood in the Denver Nuggets locker room following their 107-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday was far from jubilant – the Nuggets are all too aware of the hole they’ve dug themselves in what’s sure to be another knock-down, drag-out Western Conference – but there was, maybe for the first time since before the season started, a sense of cautious optimism...

Denver Nuggets: any chance of success this season rests on Lawson’s shoulders

Ever since Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups were traded to the New York Knicks in February of 2011, the Denver Nuggets have not only lacked a go-to offensive weapon in crucial situations, but a team leader as well. The Nuggets have had a variety of candidates who at some point while dawning the powder blue and gold, have looked the part to take over these roles, including Nene...

Cavs vs Nuggets Behind the Box Score: One Step Back

Denver Nuggets (3-7) 106 Cleveland Cavaliers (5-4) 97 [Box Score] What a dull game. The Cavaliers felt like they were sleepwalking through most of this game. The offense was stagnant and lethargic, and when they got good looks, they were missing the shots. The defense is still atrocious, as the Cavaliers let Denver keep them off balance all night long. And unlike the Cavs, the Nuggets...

Report: Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried isn’t ‘ Well Liked’ Within Organization

The Denver Nuggets are off to a disappointing 2-7 start and it doesn’t look like it’ll get better anytime soon.

George Karl still wants to coach and is "paying close attention" to the Denver Nuggets' struggles, according to one of his former assistants.

Arron Afflalo must pick up scoring slack

The Denver Nuggets aren’t sure who their leading scorer is going to be from night to night. Already this season Ty Lawson, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee, Randy Foye, and Arron Afflalo have all taken a turn. That kind of flexibility hasn’t translated into wins so far this season. The Nuggets are hoping to turn that unpredictability into a strength, but if the team is going to turn...

Nuggets Mining for Gold or What’s Left

The Denver Nuggets have started the year 1-5. The last time the franchise started 1-5 was during the 1998-1999 season where they ended up winning only 14 games. The Nuggets have made the playoffs in 10 out of 11 years (missed last season). I cannot speak for the Nuggets organization but it is easy to infer that the Nuggets are not off to the start they expected. After acquiring...

Denver Nuggets: the worst team in the NBA?

While watching the Denver Nuggets fight and scrape their way through injuries to a 36-46 record last season, I couldn’t help but think that greener pastures surely must lie ahead for the Nuggets once they became fully healthy for the 2014-15 season. Despite major injuries that ended both JaVale McGee and Danilo Gallinari’s seasons, as well as lingering injuries to Ty Lawson and...

Nuggets Injury Updates: JaVale McGee far from return, other Nuggets much closer

The Denver Nuggets have struggled to a 1-3 start this preseason following a season in which they won 36 games, fourth in the Northwest Division. The main problem for the Nuggets last season was a defense which allowed 106.2 points per game. One issue was the absence of center JaVale McGee, who missed all but five games last year due to a stress fracture in his left tibia. It appears...
