Kenneth Faried starts his 2014 season with a five-year, $60 million extension from the Nuggets. With extension, responsibilities come with it. It’s not only about being a player that puts great numbers every game, but it’s about being the go-to guy in the fourth quarter.
In basketball locales like San Antonio, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Oklahoma City and Chicago, fans can dream about winning a NBA championship this season.
In a time when the sports world is buzzing because football is back after months of lackluster golf, tennis, and baseball, something other than this upcoming Broncos season is catching my attention: the state of our Denver Nuggets. Read More

He started his day by trading Evan Fournier and a second-round draft pick for Arron Afflalo, and he completed the evening by trading Doug McDermott (Denver’s 11th pick) and Anthony Randolph to the Bulls for Jusuf Nurkic (Chicago’s 16th pick), Gary Harris (Chicago’s 19th pick) and a future second rounder.

The Nuggets trading Miller brought indifference from the public and relief for the principals involved in the trade. Read More
One of my favorite Bill Parcells’ sayings is you are what your record says you are, and that saying fits the Nuggets well. At 24-27, they are not a good team. Their play reflects that. Read More
It seems like Nuggets fans are spending more time worrying about what the Knicks do than what their own team is doing. This has nothing to do with rooting for Carmelo Anthony to fail. This has everything to do with this year’s NBA Draft.
Every year I look back on my life and pull out little nuggets that I’ve learned to share with the world. Some of these are mine, some our others but all are awesome. Your regularly scheduled sports column returns in two days.. Read More
Last night might as well be a mismatch. The Thunder had an easy time of dispatching the Nuggets in their 105-93 victory last night at the Pepsi Center. The score reflected the disparity of both basketball teams in a nutshell. Read More
Oh, Melo. Silly Melo. This is what Carmelo Anthony gets for being a distraction in his final year as a Nugget few years ago. His missed shot that could have sent the game to overtime was karma for orchestrating his departure to New York few years ago. Instead, the Nuggets and their fans celebrated an ugly 97-95 victory over the Knicks last night. Read More
