Plenty of teams break out throwback jerseys from time to time, but the one that the Nuggets chose to wear for a home game on March 17 bears some significance that goes beyond just fashion. In the playoffs that year, Denver became the first eight seed to knock off a one seed. The Seattle Supersonics…

The Luol Deng trade gave us something we hadn’t seen in three years – a star dealt mid-season. The trade might even give us something we haven’t seen in even longer – a star dealt mid-season actually improving his new team. Teams make mid-season trades for several reasons, but we’re going to examine one archetype…

Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

by Brett Pollakoff NEW YORK – When Carmelo Anthony scored a jaw-dropping 62 points in a win over the Bobcats on Friday, he didn’t just set a Knicks franchise record. He took something that belonged to Kobe Bryant. The Madison Square Garden arena record, since the building opened its fourth incarnation in 1968, was set…

A few of them went out after their New Year’s Eve games, but just like you NBA players wanted to do something fun for New Year’s Eve with family and friends. And like a lot of you, they posted what they did on Instagram (my night looked a lot like Wilson Chandler‘s). Here are a…

If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

The first few weeks of the Power Rankings see crazy fluctuations — teams that aren’t really that good start off hot, teams that are good start cold, so teams bounce up and down the rankings like they are on a bungee cord the first few weeks. Eventually things find their level. But this week was…

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…

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…

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…

Last season: The Nuggets finished the regular season with the best home record in the league, and a franchise best 57 wins, good for the three seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Then, they were bounced out of the first round by the Golden State Warriors in six games. George Karl won Coach of the…

The Warriors look to be in a perfect position. They have the series lead over the Nuggets at 3 games to 2. They’re heading home to Oracle Arena to play a close out game where the fans will create an environment that’s rarely seen in pro sports. They have the best player in the series…

The Nuggets finally looked like themselves this series, and not a moment too soon. By beating the Warriors 107-100, the Nuggets not only staved off elimination, but grabbed some momentum in the process.

The Warriors have momentum on their side. They have won two straight games, are finding ways to hit the key shots that turn the tide of the game, and nearly every adjustment head coach Mark Jackson has made has worked out in their favor. The Nuggets, meanwhile, are still searching for something sustainable that works.…

The Warriors shot the lights out in Denver to steal Game 2 from the Nuggets, and home court advantage in the best of seven first round series right along with it.
