Denver Nuggets

  1. DeMarcus Cousins was in beast mode, dropped 30 and 14 in opener (VIDEO)

    Oct 31, 2013, 11:28 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Nate Robinson

    DeMarcus Cousins got his max extension, and while some questioned the move the questions were not about talent — he can be the best center in the league in five years (or less) if he wants it. Wednesday night he showed that off against the Nuggets, dropping 30 points and pulling down 14 rebounds on…

  2. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  3. Ty Lawson will play for Nuggets in opener at Kings

    Oct 30, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Lawson celebrates a three-point shot against Golden State Warriors in their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    Denver is going to be able to throw one of the best point guard combinations in the NBA at the Sacramento Kings opening night. Ty Lawson was a game-time call due to a groin strain but coach Brian Shaw said at shootaround that Lawson would be good to go Wednesday, reports Chris Dempsey of the…

  4. Five NBA players likely to get traded this season

    Oct 29, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Jameer Nelson

    When I started compiling this list more than a week ago, Marcin Gortat was the guy on top of it — then his trade happened earlier than anyone expected. The Wizards want to make the playoffs this year, the Suns want to tank and so they had a common ground. Now who is most likely…

  5. Record 92 foreign players on NBA rosters to start season

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    SPO-BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    Just in case you had any doubt the NBA is a global league at the forefront of a global game… There are a record 92 foreign players on NBA rosters to start the season hailing from 39 countries, the league announced. That is more than 20 percent of the league. The number is up from…

  6. Wilson Chandler out for Nuggets opener, Lawson may join him

    Oct 29, 2013, 10:29 AM EDT

    Wilson Chandler

    It’s not really a surprise, Wilson Chandler has been battling a hamstring injury for weeks and those are slow to heal, but now it is official: Chandler is on the Nuggets inactive list for the season opener Wednesday at Sacramento. That is certainly a blow because in an ideal world the Nuggets rotation at the…

  7. Brian Shaw leaning toward starting Hickson over Faried opening night

    Oct 29, 2013, 12:44 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    If you wondered why reports had surfaced that Denver was shopping around Kenneth Faried, here’s a hint as to why. Nuggets’ coach Brian Shaw is leaning toward starting J.J. Hickson over Kenneth Faried in the Nuggets opener Wednesday at Sacramento (via the Nuggets twitter account). Part of that is that Faried is coming off a…

  8. Nate Robinson isn’t sure why teams overlook him, but he’s sure he likes Brian Shaw

    Oct 28, 2013, 7:08 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    When Nate Robinson catches fire, there is no better show in the NBA. What playoff quarter was more entertaining than his 23-point fourth quarter in the first round of the playoffs against Brooklyn in Game 4, when Robinson single handedly forced overtime? He’s the shortest player in the NBA, a fan favorite everywhere and he…

  9. New Uncle Drew spot is out (we have it), Nate Robinson is in it and tells PBT about it

    Oct 28, 2013, 3:50 PM EDT

    pepsi-max-kyrie-irving-uncle-drew

    Not a lot of commercials create a buzz, but the new “Pepsi MAX & Kyrie Irving Present: Uncle Drew Chapter 3” has had it for weeks. The series where Irving plays Uncle Drew, an old baller getting his team back together, going out to a park and schooling the “kids” is just classic. If in…

  10. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  11. Ty Lawson may miss season opener for Nuggets

    Oct 28, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Ty Lawson

    People in the “Denver can again make the playoffs camp” will grant you that Andre Iguodala is gone and Danilo Gallinari will not be back until likely sometime after Thanksgiving, but they say the Nuggets still have a lot from last season’t 57-win team. Such as Ty Lawson… except they may not have him Wednesday…

  12. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Memphis Grizzlies

    Oct 24, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Last season: After totaling up 56 wins in the regular season, the Memphis Grizzlies got sweet revenge over the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round, then extinguished a short-handed Oklahoma City Thunder team before finally falling to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. This was the best season in franchise history by a large…

  13. PBT Roundtable: Who is your League Pass team this season?

    Oct 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Who is going to be your League Pass team this season (the team outside the brightest spotlights that you keep finding yourself drawn to when there are…

  14. Future trade bait Glen Davis progressing from foot injury

    Oct 22, 2013, 3:40 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Glen Davis

    When this season ends Glen Davis is going to be playing for someone other than Orlando. There are no sure things in the NBA, I could be wrong, but if I were Davis I would keep a “go bag” packed and ready near the front door. Why? Orlando is rebuilding and Davis is a veteran…

  15. Nuggets’ Nate Robinson fined $10,000 for incident with Steven Adams

    Oct 21, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson, Brian Shaw

    It was the fourth quarter of a blowout preseason game where the Thunder were shredding the Nuggets, and as Derek Fisher was knocking down a jumper from the top of the key, Nate Robinson shoved Thunder rookie center Steven Adams under the basket, then as Adams ran past him back up court Robinson struck him…

  16. Nate Robinson fully believes he could have been an elite NFL cornerback

    Oct 21, 2013, 4:34 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    It’s part of the legend of Nate Robinson — he was a two-sport star in high school in Seattle, a very good defensive corner on the football team as well as a hoops standout. He went on to the University of Washington and played one year as a cornerback there before deciding to focus full…

  17. Evan Fournier, JaVale McGee know their Mario Kart sounds

    Oct 21, 2013, 1:10 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    One of the beautiful things about basketball is it brings people together — different races, religions, nationalities, different everything can be unified by playing the game. It gives people a common bond. Same with Mario Kart. At least that’s true for Nuggets teammates Evan Fournier of France and JaVale McGee, who was born in Flint,…

  18. Chris Paul drops 40 on Nuggets in preseason (VIDEO)

    Oct 20, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Maybe there is something special about those powder blue with sleeves uniforms of the Clippers. Or maybe Chris Paul just loves Las Vegas. Whatever the case, CP3 went off in a preseason game against Denver and dropped 40 points in Los Angeles’ 118-111 overtime win at Mandalay Bay. Doc Rivers decided to stretch the legs…

  19. Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried suffers right hamstring strain

    Oct 17, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    Kenneth Faried in some ways symbolized the Denver Nuggets last season — athletic and with boundless energy to outwork his opponents, improving but still a bit raw and figuring out how to really play the game. Faried’s ability to bring that same energy at the start of this new season could have been compromised —…

  20. NBA’s new promo video has young stars turning on arena lights (VIDEO)

    Oct 14, 2013, 2:29 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    I’m not sure this is the best NBA season opening promo video I’ve seen this season, but I like it. The league put together footage of Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes, John Wall, Jrue Holiday, Kenneth Faried, Paul George and other young stars from around the league “turning on the lights” in their buildings with the…

  21. Nuggets’ Andre Miller believes he can play until he’s 40

    Oct 13, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Andre Miller is entering his 15th NBA season, and he’s always been considered one of the highest-IQ players at his position. His “old man game” is fun to watch in an entirely different way than say, Nuggets starting point guard Ty Lawson, given Miller’s style that has him using his brain far more often than…

  22. Friday And-1 Links: What have we learned from Jason Collins?

    Oct 11, 2013, 6:41 PM EDT

    FILE:  NBA Player Jason Collins Comes Out As Gay

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like kids love pizza…. • Jason Collins is not on an NBA team as…

  23. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Utah Jazz

    Oct 11, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Jazz Scrimmage

    Last season: The Jazz finished 43-39, but they missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. Nobody really knew what direction Utah was headed, perhaps including Utah itself. The Jazz kept Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, both on expiring contracts, past the trade deadline to make a playoff push. All they got was…

  24. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Portland Trail Blazers

    Oct 10, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Hornets Trail Blazers Basketball

    Last Season: The Blazers spent the first half of the season threatening for a playoff spot, but one of the worst benches in NBA history ultimately sunk the team’s chances. Damian Lillard‘s scoring prowess made him the fourth unanimous Rookie of the Year winner in NBA history, and it simulatenously provided hope that Portland’s current core…

  25. Prosecutors drop domestic violence case against Ty Lawson

    Oct 9, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Ty Lawson

    Ty Lawson was arrested on a domestic violence charge back in August, but immediately after the news made the rounds, Lawson essentially proclaimed his innocence. It’s all now officially behind the Nuggets’ star point guard, as the prosecutors have dropped the case. From the Associated Press: Lisa Pinto, a spokeswoman for 18th Judicial District Attorney’s…
