Gee already making his presence felt

Denver’s newest Nugget Alonzo Gee has quickly become a go-to guy for coach Brian Shaw and a fan favorite. Gee, a 6’6″ small forward who was undrafted out of Alabama, was listed as a long shot to make the team before training camp, but has made an early impact on the team. Gee has caught the eye of the coaching staff in the preseason where he displayed some great defense and...

Gallinari is the key to success for the Nuggets

Chalk up game one as “business handled” for the Denver Nuggets. Last night, they held court and beat an inferior Eastern Conference team at Pepsi Center. The season opener wasn’t a measuring stick or litmus test; it was a game that a Western Conference team with playoff aspirations had to win. The basketball brain trust has preached that a healthy Nuggets team this season...

There’s a new big man in Denver

It’s no secret that I’ve never been much of a “basketball guy.” In fact, my ongoing joke last year when it became apparent that the Denver Nuggets weren’t going to amount to much in the 2013-14 season was that I would attempt to go the entire season without watching an NBA game in its entirety. It was a worthwhile endeavor insofar as it allowed me to vent my frustrations...

Sidelined 18 months, Gallinari anxious for opener

DENVER (AP) Danilo Gallinari's every moment on the court will be closely tracked and monitored. For now, no more than 20 minutes a game for the Denver Nuggets forward, no matter how well he's playing, how tight the game may be or how much he pleads. It's a restriction Gallinari can tolerate. Sure, he feels like he could play way more than that, but he doesn't want...

WATCH: Denver Nuggets parody Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off'

We wish this video had less mascot and more Nuggets, but we stil strongly urge you to watch Denver's players and cheerleaders sing and dance to Taylor Swift's No. 1 hit, "Shake It Off." While forward Danilo Gallinari gives a strong effort throughout, 5-foot-9 guard Nate Robinson and 7-foot-1 center Timofey Mozgov teamed up to steal the show with a variety of classic dance moves.

Denver’s Hamster Wheel of Mediocrity

To be fair to Denver, nobody really knows how to assign value to contract extensions right now. Some teams, like Phoenix, are engaged in a mad dash to get their talent locked up now, before the 2016 salary boom. That’s how the Suns managed to secure the Morris twins and Eric Bledsoe to incredibly favorable long-term deals. The idea is that by offering long-term security, they can...

Denver Nuggets: Four burning questions for the 2014-15 season

Nuggets think they can find success with their up tempo style and offseason pickups

There are a lot of really good teams in the Western Conference, which makes it very hard for those second-tier teams — right below the established Thunder, Spurs and Clippers to name a few — to jump up into contending status. The Denver Nuggets are one of those second-tier teams. The Nuggets were bad last season in coach Brian Shaw‘s first year at the helm, winning just 36...

Nuggets tickets up by 144% in 2014

A year after a disappointing 36-46 season, the Denver Nuggets will look to rebound in 2014-15. The first year under head coach Brian Shaw did not end well, though injuries played a large part in the underwhelming play. With players like Danilo Gallinari, J.J Hickson, JaVale McGee and Nate Robinson healthy, the rotation depth should be much better than it was last season. There is...

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.
