Denver Nuggets

  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Nuggets are all back and healthy, but the Spurs won anyway

    Dec 23, 2010, 8:14 AM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Ty Lawson

    What you missed while reading how The Onion broke down the year in basketball… Spurs 109, Nuggets 103: The band is back together in Denver, everyone was back from injury (well, everyone except Carmelo Anthony who is dealing with a death in the family). The Nuggets had Chauncey Billups back running the show at the…

  2. Melo out against Spurs Wednesday due to death in family

    Dec 22, 2010, 12:52 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Carmelo Anthony will not suit up for the Denver Nuggets Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs so that he can attend to issues regarding a death in the family, the team announced. “Our entire organization supports Carmelo during this difficult time for him and his family,” Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai…

  3. Report: Mavericks throw hat in Melo sweepstakes — but only as a rental

    Dec 21, 2010, 11:56 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Now we have some confirmation on an early post on this site that came with a little bit of speculation — it is indeed the Dallas Mavericks that is the contending team that has thrown it’s hat into the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. However they only want him as a “rental,” according to Ken Berger of…

  4. Report: Contending teams consider “renting” Carmelo Anthony for season

    Dec 21, 2010, 4:18 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Much of the focus on Carmelo Anthony’s trade prospects has centered on whether Anthony would sign a contract extension to play wherever he was sent. But what if a contending team was willing to trade for him without caring about an extension? That is apparently happening (well, that or it’s a negotiating tactic). Sources told…

  5. The Carmelo Anthony trade rumor wheel goes around and around and….

    Dec 21, 2010, 11:44 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Just how confusing and circular is the Carmelo Anthony trade situation? Take the two very different stories that broke Tuesday. On one hand you have Yahoo’s trade rumor machine Adrian Wojnarowski saying that the Nets and Nuggets are working on a complex multi-team deal which would bring Anthony and some other quality talent to the…

  6. Count J.R. Smith out of the dunk contest

    Dec 19, 2010, 3:42 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    I’m just saying… we could go ahead and give it to him anyway. J.R. Smith spoke to FanHouse after that absolute demolition of Gary Neal last week. You know, that dunk that was so bad Neal’s cousin’s realtor felt like he got yammed on? Turns out you shouldn’t expect to see J.R. lacing them up…

  7. Rudy Gay suspended for Saturday; George Karl, Andre Miller each get fined

    Dec 18, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    NBA VP of basketball operations and official Scrooge Stu Jackson was a busy man Saturday handing out lumps of coal to players and coaches he thought had been naughty. Rudy Gay has been suspended one game for his body check from behind of Luis Scola in the Grizzlies loss Friday night to the Rockets. The…

  8. This is it for Antonio McDyess, he says he’s ready to retire

    Dec 17, 2010, 1:13 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 3

    You know how some athletes say they are going to retire but they just keep coming back year after year after year, then they send pictures of their junk to hot young reporters, then they come back again. None of that is happening with Antonio McDyess. Check out what he told Chris Tomasson of FanHouse…

  9. Video: J.R. Smith’s vicious two-hand dunk

    Dec 17, 2010, 8:50 AM EDT

    J.R. Smith

    The Spurs players end up on a lot of posters because they try to take the charge — and it won them the game last night. But rookie Gary Neal, he’s just in a poster. This was as insane and powerful a dunk as you are going to see. Just put this on a loop…

  10. Watch Manu Ginobili win a game

    Dec 17, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    Manu Ginobili

    For the second night in a row, Manu Ginobili made the play. Or in this case, plays. He made the acrobatic off-the-glass layup. Then he beat Carmelo Anthony to the spot and took the charge. And this time nobody is questioning if he traveled. Or if the guy knows how to compete.

  11. Games of the night: The Spurs and Celtics keep right on winning

    Dec 17, 2010, 4:54 AM EDT

    Nate Robinson Marquis Daniels

    Spurs 113, Nuggets 112. Manu. Flipin. Ginobili. First Manu hits an acrobatic four-footer — twisting, splitting the double team and kiss it off the glass with English — to give the Spurs a one-point lead with 4.2 seconds left. Then on the other end he makes a perfectly-timed double team — not moving until Carmelo…

  12. J.R. Smith to Chicago? Maybe. (And what that means about Melo.)

    Dec 15, 2010, 12:43 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_smith.jpg for post 394

    The theory goes like this: If the Denver Nuggets are going to trade Carmelo Anthony, then they are going to strip the roster down and rebuild. That means Chauncey Billups is gets moved, it means J.R. Smith is out and maybe more. In the NBA you sell the fan base one of two things —…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Orlando’s defense went to Disneyworld for the night

    Dec 15, 2010, 3:32 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Vince Carter

    What you missed while answering very hard hockey trivia questions…. Nuggets 111, Magic 94: There’s an old coaching axiom that offense can be hit or miss but defense never takes a night off. Orlando tried its best to prove that wrong Tuesday. Orlando played defense like Golden State for a night. Carmelo Anthony (in his…

  14. Anthony-to-Nets rumor not true. Yet, anyway.

    Dec 15, 2010, 1:35 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 1:33 am: After his nightly news broadcast, KGMH sports anchor Lionel Bienvenu clarified his news station’s tweet saying “No, Melo was not traded. Deal is in works. Trade could happen.” So, what the rest of us have been hearing for weeks. This does not explain why the original tweet was sent out saying the…

  15. Chauncey Billups to be out week with ligament issue in wrist

    Dec 14, 2010, 5:27 PM EDT

    Image (1) Billups_game-thumb-250x302-7294.jpg for post 787

    UPDATE 5:27 pm: The Nuggets are officially calling it a “partially torn ligament” in his wrist, which is one way of saying a bad sprain. This is likely residual from a Nov.20 fall against the Nets, Billups has played through wrist pain ever since. 3:17 pm: It was a surprise — Chauncey Billups walked out…

  16. Carmelo Anthony denies he gave Denver an ultimatum (let’s have an argument)

    Dec 13, 2010, 11:26 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    This whole Carmelo Anthony trade thing is starting to sound like a Monty Python skit. No it isn’t. Yes it is. No it isn’t. Yes it is. Isn’t. Is. Two days ago came the report that Anthony would only sign an extension with the New York Knicks. Then today another report said the Nets and…

  17. Reports: New Jersey, maybe even Denver still in play for Carmelo Anthony

    Dec 13, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Anthony_dunk

    When Carmelo Anthony stepped on the court at Madison Square Garden Sunday, announced as part of the visiting team, cheers rained down on him like he was Willis Reed. The New York fans wanted him to know what they thought of talk of him coming to the Knicks. But despite reports yesterday that the Knicks…

  18. Report: Melo will only sign extension if traded to New York

    Dec 12, 2010, 5:43 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Chris Sheridan of ESPN New York is reporting that Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony has informed his team he will only sign his extension if he is traded to the New York Knicks. Baboom. CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger has sources disputing the report that Melo has informed Denver, but confirms the decision: Melo will not re-sign…

  19. Carmelo Anthony is “thinking” about the Nuggets’ extension offer

    Dec 11, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Could it be for all the talk, all the rumors, and all the clamoring that Carmelo Anthony simply winds up where he is now for the long-term? Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that Carmelo Anthony has told the Nuggets he’ll “think about” signing the extension they’re offering which would keep him in Denver in the…

  20. George Karl joins the 1,000-win club

    Dec 10, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    The last time George Karl coached a team with a losing record, Notre Dame was the undefeated national champions, the Los Angeles Dodgers won the World Series and the Democrats thought it was a good idea to nominate Michael Dukakis for president of the United States. Karl has coached a long time and won in…

  21. Trick shots with Ty Lawson

    Dec 10, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Boston Celtics

    Off the rafters, one bounce, nothing but net… It’s almost time for the weekend, when you’ll head out and try your own trick shots in the driveway, eventually breaking a window or having the ball hit the sleeping dog on the porch. So rather than anger man’s best friend, why not let the Denver Nuggets…

  22. Nuggets management figures out it has to trade Carmelo Anthony. Finally.

    Dec 9, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you and I figured out months ago, what Carmelo Anthony’s people have been telling the Nuggets front office privately since this summer, has finally sunk in with Denver’s decision makers. Carmelo Anthony is leaving, and you can trade him now or watch him walk for nothing next July. So Denver is going to get…

  23. Carmelo Anthony out against Boston with sore knee

    Dec 8, 2010, 7:49 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Boston is catching some breaks this season. When they faced Oklahoma City Kevin Durant was out, when they faced Washington John Wall was out… And when Denver came into the Garden tonight, Carmelo Anthony was out. He had an inflamed right knee, according to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post. It was bothering him last…

  24. A few good reasons Renaldo Balkman isn’t playing in Denver

    Dec 7, 2010, 4:49 PM EDT

    105969934

    The Denver Nuggets have been desperate for front court help this season, looking for some support from anywhere while they waited for the recently returned Chris Anderson and the not-yet-back Kenyon Martin to get right. Yet there sat Renaldo Balkman, the forward and former first round pick of the Knicks, barely able to get off…

  25. George Karl to go for 1,000th win Tuesday in Charlotte

    Dec 6, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_Karl-thumb-250x181-21662.jpg for post 6222

    Right now, six coaches in NBA history have had 1,000 or more wins —Lenny Wilkens, Don Nelson, Larry Brown, Pat Riley, Jerry Sloan and Phil Jackson. Elite coaches. Soon that will be seven, as George Karl stands at 999 and ready to walk through that door. He told FanHouse he’s not convinced he belongs. “There’s…
