  1. What the Nuggets should do when the lockout ends…

    Sep 16, 2011, 12:19 PM EST

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    This is the next installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Today it’s the Denver Nuggets. You can also read up on the Lakers, Timberwolves and Mavericks as we start to work our way through all 30 NBA teams.   Last Season: Well that was no fun, then it was kind of fun,…

  2. No, for real, all of the Nuggets are going to China

    Sep 10, 2011, 9:00 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    Seriously, are the Nuggets the only team outside of the Rockets and Lakers on television in China? Is there some sort of affinity for the powder blue? What is the deal with Chinese teams going after Denver Nuggets free agents, potentially keeping them out of the NBA when it resumes this year, if it resumes…

  3. Kenyon Martin fires agent, puts house on market. He may be gone, Denver.

    Aug 11, 2011, 8:54 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Four

    Kenyon Martin is going to be one of the more sought after free agents in the mad scramble that will be post-lockout free agency (did you see how things went in the condensed NFL free agency?). He looks like a guy clearing the way for one more big kick at the can, and likely moving…

  4. Free agent Kenyon Martin likes Denver but likes winning more

    Apr 28, 2011, 9:26 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    Kenyon Martin is about to be a free agent at age 33. A guy who has had his big contract and is set financially (or at least should be). As a rookie he was on a Nets team that went all the way to the NBA finals and has never been that far again. That…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Thunder nearly blow lead vs. Nuggets, take 3-0 lead, or did they?

    hardenfoul2

    So this should go over well in Denver. Let’s start with the controversy. Here’s the final play in Denver in the Thunder’s win over the Nuggets. You decide. Did Harden get him on the arm? Did he go straight up? That’s about as close as it gets. Nothing will change the result, however. Thunder win,…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Denver tries to rediscover itself in Game 3 versus Thunder

    Apr 23, 2011, 6:09 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Oklahoma City Thunder

    The Nuggets are coming apart. They were wiped off the floor in Game 2 of a series they were supposed to be competitive in. J.R. Smith started saying J.R Smith things and now there’s a question of whether all that momentum of Game 1 was a figment of their imagination, or some fantasy concocted by…

  7. NBA Playoffs: OKC takes Game 2 as Denver’s depth disappears

    Apr 21, 2011, 2:14 AM EST

    Al Harrington, J.R. Smith, Nene

    Game 1 of the series between the Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder stood out as a highly entertaining contest in an opening weekend full of highly entertaining contests, but the reprise in Game 2 couldn’t quite measure up as a competitive spectacle. Blame the Thunder; OKC used a dominant first quarter as a catalyst…

  8. Nuggets Martin not down with defensive plan on Durant

    Apr 19, 2011, 10:42 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Phoenix Suns

    When was the last time you heard a player call out his own coach’s playoff defensive strategy? Meet Kenyon Martin. He watched Kevin Durant drop 41 on the Nuggets in Game 1 of the playoffs, hitting 13-of-22 shots and just dropping it in from everywhere on the court (he was 6-of-10 from the midrange and…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Thunder barely outgun Nuggets

    Apr 18, 2011, 4:01 AM EST

    nuggetsthunder1

    In a weekend full of high intensity, close games full of excitement, it was only fitting that the Oklahoma City Thunder and Denver Nuggets provided one last fireworks show. The game was the equivalent of some sort of bizarre video game. You have expected a mythical creature to burst through the floor and battle the…

  10. Nuggets win over Lakers should get Thunder’s attention

    Apr 3, 2011, 7:15 PM EST

    Nene Hilario, Andrew Bynum

    With just 10 days of NBA games remaining, some first round playoff matchups are pretty much set. Out West, the Oklahoma City Thunder are almost certainly getting the Denver Nuggets in the first round. Sunday Denver beat the Lakers by outworking them, being more scrappy, playing good defense and moving the ball on offense (95-90…

  11. What’s the holdup on ‘Melo deal? Al Harrington’s bad deal.

    Jan 10, 2011, 12:53 PM EST

    Al Harrington

    UPDATE 12:53 pm: Here is the latest, from multiple reports, at this time on the still pending Carmelo Anthony trade: Everything seems to be in Denver’s court, but they continue to tweak offers and try to work out the best deal — they have even pushed the Nets to take on Renaldo Balkman in addition…

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

    Dec 23, 2010, 8:14 AM EST

    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…

  13. George Karl says he wants to coach next season, but health will determine

    Nov 16, 2010, 10:42 PM EST

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

    In one sense, George Karl is just like Carmelo Anthony, Kenyon Martin and JR Smith — who knows if they will be back with the Nuggets next season. Except Karl is for a refreshingly non-monetary reason, as he told the Associated Press before the game. It’s all about his health. “At the end of the…

  14. Target return dates for Nuggets: Birdman Dec. 1, Martin on New Years Day

    Oct 20, 2010, 8:13 AM EST

    Image (1) nba_martin_250-thumb-250x185-5506.jpg for post 39

    On the night of New Year’s day, when your hangover is finally gone and you settle in for a disappointing Fiesta Bowl featuring Oklahoma and Utah, something else may catch your attention. Kenyon Martin may be back in an NBA game. George Karl said Tuesday that he hoped to have Martin back by Jan. 1,…

  15. Al Harrington to miss two weeks with a foot injury, return just in time for the regular season opener

    Oct 10, 2010, 8:00 AM EST

    Al Harrington

    The Denver Nuggets are already without their starting power forward from last season due to a knee injury, and now they’ll also lose their monumental off-season acquisition for the remainder of the preseason. Al Harrington was the one significant piece the Nuggets added this summer, but according to the Associated Press, they’ll be without his…

  16. Al Harrington to miss rest of preseason for Denver… at least

    Oct 9, 2010, 4:42 PM EST

    AHarrington_Nuggetintro

    Al Harrington was brought in to Denver to provide some depth on the front line, to be the healthy big man while Kenyon Martin and Chris Anderson get their bodies right. So much for that plan. Harrington will miss at least the rest of the preseason with a partially torn plantar fascia in his left…

  17. What exactly did Kenyon Martin expect?

    Oct 2, 2010, 12:00 PM EST

    We brought you news from FanHouse yesterday that Kenyon Martin was not going to be rushing back from injury to help the Nuggets because he’s miffed they elected to give Al Harrington “their money.” Martin’s in no hurry to help out the Nuggets after they failed to give him a big contract extension. Now, Kenyon…

  18. Kenyon Martin is not rushing back to help out the Nuggets

    Oct 1, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    A lot of guys got contract extensions this summer. Kenyon Martin was not one of them. What he did get was knee surgery. And he’s pretty ticked about it. Check out these comments to FanHouse’s Chris Tomasson: “(It is) my last year of my deal. We all know it. Ain’t nobody in a hurry to…

  19. Birdman could be flying high for Nuggets on opening night

    Sep 8, 2010, 8:00 PM EST

    It seemed like this summer the Denver Nuggets should have gotten the bulk shopping discount on knee surgeries. Chris “Birdman” Andersen had his partially torn patella tendon repaired after playing through the pain of it most of last season. He says he may be back from his sooner than expected — possibly even the start…

  20. Kenyon Martin is still waiting to be impressed

    Aug 20, 2010, 1:55 PM EST

    How long can the Denver Nuggets honestly claim to be on the brink of contention? There is some room for natural improvement — having George Karl back should help, more playing time for Ty Lawson would go a long way, etc. — but this team is essentially the same as it was last year. And…

  21. Kenyon Martin feels Carmelo's Anthony's pain

    Aug 19, 2010, 11:17 AM EST

    While certain agents and back-room deal loves may be pushing for fast action, nothing fast is going to happen with Carmelo Anthony. Denver needs to get a general manager first. Then this GM will want to talk to ‘Melo face-to-face, Then the powers that be need decide if they are going to trade him or…

  22. Nuggets trying to trade for Andris Biedrins. As if that will make them tougher.

    Jul 1, 2010, 11:27 AM EST

    If Denver wants to win a title, they have to get past the Los Angeles Lakers first. And that is a tall order. Literally. The long front line of the Lakers — Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol, Lamar Odom — has been a problem for Denver. So they are going to solve that with… Andris Biedrins?…

  23. NBA Playoffs: Carmelo Anthony's success puts him in a strangely familiar place

    Apr 26, 2010, 11:54 AM EST

    In four games against the Utah Jazz in this year’s playoffs, Carmelo Anthony is averaging 34.5 points per game while shooting 52.6% from the field and grabbing seven rebounds a night. Yet his Denver Nuggets trail the Jazz 1-3 in the series after another loss last night, and Anthony’s 39-point, 11-rebound performance (though with nine…

  24. NBA Playoffs: Andrei Kirilenko thinks he can be back for game six

    Apr 23, 2010, 3:34 PM EST

    It can’t last, can it? The Jazz can’t keep winning with nobody healthy left on the front line, can they? Well, yes they can. Their offensive system is a troublesome match for Denver. Doesn’t mean they wouldn’t mind the help. Andrei Kirilenko wants to be the cavalry. The Russian Cavalry in their Cossack uniforms, but…

  25. Kenyon Martin is not amused by your tomfoolery

    Apr 3, 2010, 3:18 AM EST

    Kenyon Martin has always struck me as a man who takes himself entirely too seriously. His career is marked by tough guy posturing in every conceivable form, to the point where Martin is at times a caricature of himself. I just want someone to grab K-Mart by both shoulders, look deep into his eyes, and…
