Nuggets win season opener slugfest against Pistons

At media day, Denver Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw said he wants a team that is able to win a game in the 100s, but he also wants his team to be able to win games in the 80s. Well, he got what he wanted tonight as his team won an evenly matched game against the Detroit Pistons 89-79. Kenneth Faried led the way with 22 points and 17 rebounds. The Manimal was instrumental on the offensive...

There’s a new big man in Denver

It’s no secret that I’ve never been much of a “basketball guy.” In fact, my ongoing joke last year when it became apparent that the Denver Nuggets weren’t going to amount to much in the 2013-14 season was that I would attempt to go the entire season without watching an NBA game in its entirety. It was a worthwhile endeavor insofar as it allowed me to vent my frustrations...

Sidelined 18 months, Gallinari anxious for opener

DENVER (AP) Danilo Gallinari's every moment on the court will be closely tracked and monitored. For now, no more than 20 minutes a game for the Denver Nuggets forward, no matter how well he's playing, how tight the game may be or how much he pleads. It's a restriction Gallinari can tolerate. Sure, he feels like he could play way more than that, but he doesn't want...

How about this to kick off the 2014-15 NBA regular season then to have the Denver Nuggets parody Taylor Swift’s song “Shake it off.” The video includes Denver’s mascot, “Rocky,” Kenneth Faried with a boombox, Danillo Gallinari kind of sort of dancing to the Denver cheerleaders doing their thing.

WATCH: Denver Nuggets parody Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off'

We wish this video had less mascot and more Nuggets, but we stil strongly urge you to watch Denver's players and cheerleaders sing and dance to Taylor Swift's No. 1 hit, "Shake It Off." While forward Danilo Gallinari gives a strong effort throughout, 5-foot-9 guard Nate Robinson and 7-foot-1 center Timofey Mozgov teamed up to steal the show with a variety of classic dance moves.

Denver’s Hamster Wheel of Mediocrity

To be fair to Denver, nobody really knows how to assign value to contract extensions right now. Some teams, like Phoenix, are engaged in a mad dash to get their talent locked up now, before the 2016 salary boom. That’s how the Suns managed to secure the Morris twins and Eric Bledsoe to incredibly favorable long-term deals. The idea is that by offering long-term security, they can...

The Denver Nuggets begin their season at the Pepsi Center against the Detroit Pistons on October 29th. The Nuggets are predicted by most experts and GMs to remain in the worst place an organization can be in the NBA, in purgatory...

Nuggets think they can find success with their up tempo style and offseason pickups

There are a lot of really good teams in the Western Conference, which makes it very hard for those second-tier teams — right below the established Thunder, Spurs and Clippers to name a few — to jump up into contending status. The Denver Nuggets are one of those second-tier teams. The Nuggets were bad last season in coach Brian Shaw‘s first year at the helm, winning just 36...
