Report: Mike D’Antoni Interested in Coaching Nuggets

If were any team other than the Nuggets, I’d consider this report laughable. The franchise and the coach just might be a perfect fit. With Brian Shaw out in Denver, I'm told Mike D'Antoni would definitely have interest in the job. — Sam Amick (@sam_amick) March 3, 2015 The run and gun — no defense playing Suns. Sounds like the team they have now. It had previously been...

An Incomplete List of Potential New Denver Nuggets Coaches

The Denver Nuggets fired head coach Brian Shaw on Tuesday. Not long after the Nuggets started ending their huddles by counting down until the end of the season (they of course denied that was what they were doing). The biggest Nuggets fan I know is Colin Deaver, who contributes to RoundballMining.com (among his other sporting skills) and has been calling for the Nuggets to blow themselves...

Brian Shaw never stood a chance

And so the Brian Shaw era of the Denver Nuggets history book came to a close, not with a bang, but before a Tuesday night home game against the Bucks in early March – a whimper if there ever was one. Without rehashing too many of the grisly details, here’s what went down in Shaw’s not-quite two-year tenure in Denver: a 56-85 overall record, an avalanche of uninspiring effort...

Denver Nuggets: End of “Shaw” era

The Denver Nuggets decided early Tuesday morning to fire head coach Brian Shaw, who was in his second year with the team. This is coming on the heels of the team losing 19 out of their last 21 games, as well as a flurry of controversy that’s been leaking out of the locker room for the last couple months. Shaw came to Denver as a great coaching prospect, best known for his defensive...

Denver Nuggets fire Brian Shaw

In a less-than-surprising move, the Denver Nuggets have fired head coach Brian Shaw. The team is currently 20-39 on the season and simply hasn’t played inspired basketball this season. That came to a head recently when it was reported that players are breaking team huddles with a countdown to the end of the season. Definitely not a good sign. Including this season, Shaw was a...

Mike D'Antoni Interested In Nuggets' Job

Mike D'Antoni has interest in becoming head coach of the Denver Nuggets. D'Antoni hasn't coached since he was fired by the Los Angeles Lakers following the 13-14 season. D'Antoni's first head coaching job in the NBA was with the Nuggets. D'Antoni's fastpaced system on offense would presumably give the Nuggets a strong homecourt advantage due to the altitude of Denver.

The Denver Nuggets can't wait for the season to end

It's been nothing short of a miserable season for the Denver Nuggets. Luckily for them, there's only six weeks until the season's over, and they're counting down the days until that happens...literally.  Things are already testy between the players and coach Brian Shaw, who has repeatedly called out his team's lack of focus and intensity this season, and this probably won't help...
