Kenyon Martin

  1. Nuggets Martin not down with defensive plan on Durant

    Apr 19, 2011, 10:42 AM EDT

    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…

  2. NBA Playoffs: Thunder barely outgun Nuggets

    Apr 18, 2011, 4:01 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Apr 3, 2011, 7:15 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 10, 2011, 12:53 PM EDT

    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…

  5. 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…

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

    Nov 16, 2010, 10:42 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 20, 2010, 8:13 AM EDT

    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,…

  8. 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 EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 9, 2010, 4:42 PM EDT

    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…

  10. What exactly did Kenyon Martin expect?

    Oct 2, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 1, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 8, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    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…

  13. Kenyon Martin is still waiting to be impressed

    Aug 20, 2010, 1:55 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 19, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 1, 2010, 11:27 AM EDT

    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?…

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

    Apr 26, 2010, 11:54 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Apr 23, 2010, 3:34 PM EDT

    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…

  18. Kenyon Martin is not amused by your tomfoolery

    Apr 3, 2010, 3:18 AM EDT

    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…

  19. Martin progressing, slowly but surely

    Mar 24, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    The Nuggets desperately need to be healthy for the playoffs, and that desperation begins with Kenyon Martin’s recovery from patella tendinitis. His size and defense are going to be crucial if Denver plans on crashing the post-season party, and Joey Graham just isn’t going to cut it. Neither is Johan Petro. The Nuggets are a…
