Denver Nuggets: Ty Lawson deserves spot in All-Star game

For some strange reason, Denver Nuggets’ point guard Ty Lawson has never seemed to receive the full credit he deserves since he first came into the league back in 2009. Maybe it’s because he’s one of the shorter players in the league, standing at just 5’11. Maybe it’s because he wasn’t a high lottery pick or because he had the enormous shoes of Chauncey Billups, Denver’s...

Nate Robinson Is Very, Very Excited About Kenneth Faried’s Monster Dunk

The Denver Nuggets beat the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night, 114-109, in a game that saw Derrick Rose play only ten minutes before heading to the sideline with a hamstring injury (the same hamstring that kept him out a few games last week).

WATCH: Ty Lawson drops Kirk Hinrich to the floor

Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson is often overlooked but is still the same quick, elusive player he's always been. Kirk Hinrich learned the hard way in the third quarter of Tuesday night's Bulls-Nuggets game, when Lawson put him on skates. Lawson set up near the three-point arc and made it look like he was going left—toward the top of the key. But he quickly changed...

Kenneth Faried glides for powerful slam dunk in Bulls-Nuggets

Kenneth Faried is quite the dunker. The Manimal glided in from afar and threw in a powerful flush against the Chicago Bulls. Look at the Manimal in action here: Brian Shaw and the Nuggets may not know what to do with Kenneth Faried. But the Manimal will keep coming at everyone hard and will keep smashing the rim at will no matter what. *** Kenneth Faried pic courtesy of Getty Images...

Continuity is key to Nuggets turnaround

The Denver Nuggets, winners of four straight after their 101-94 overtime victory over Los Angeles Lakers, look like a completely different team than the one that lost six straight just a few weeks ago. Admittedly, the win against the Lakers was far from pretty. The Nuggets shot just 37.8 percent from the field, 60.5 percent from the line, and turned the ball over 16 times against...

Denver Nuggets: offense finally getting consistent group effort

In today’s NBA, it’s considered practically impossible for a team without a true superstar, to win a championship. In fact, the ideal blueprint to winning a NBA championship in recent seasons has required not just one, but three superstar caliber players if teams want any real shot at winning a title. While the “Big three” formula certainly has plenty of NBA titles to back...

Denver Nuggets center Javale McGee may not be very good at basketball, but at least he does things his way.

The Denver Nuggets have become a laughingstock

The Denver Nuggets hired Brian Shaw, the highly sought-after coaching candidate who was an assistant with the Lakers under Phil Jackson, to his first head-coaching job in the NBA last summer with high hopes. At the time, Denver was a team brimming with potential and young, explosive player after another. The roster composition is still basically the same as it was when Shaw signed...

Nuggets starting to turn a corner

The mood in the Denver Nuggets locker room following their 107-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday was far from jubilant – the Nuggets are all too aware of the hole they’ve dug themselves in what’s sure to be another knock-down, drag-out Western Conference – but there was, maybe for the first time since before the season started, a sense of cautious optimism...

Denver Nuggets: any chance of success this season rests on Lawson’s shoulders

Ever since Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups were traded to the New York Knicks in February of 2011, the Denver Nuggets have not only lacked a go-to offensive weapon in crucial situations, but a team leader as well. The Nuggets have had a variety of candidates who at some point while dawning the powder blue and gold, have looked the part to take over these roles, including Nene...

Cavs vs Nuggets Behind the Box Score: One Step Back

Denver Nuggets (3-7) 106 Cleveland Cavaliers (5-4) 97 [Box Score] What a dull game. The Cavaliers felt like they were sleepwalking through most of this game. The offense was stagnant and lethargic, and when they got good looks, they were missing the shots. The defense is still atrocious, as the Cavaliers let Denver keep them off balance all night long. And unlike the Cavs, the Nuggets...

Arron Afflalo must pick up scoring slack

The Denver Nuggets aren’t sure who their leading scorer is going to be from night to night. Already this season Ty Lawson, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee, Randy Foye, and Arron Afflalo have all taken a turn. That kind of flexibility hasn’t translated into wins so far this season. The Nuggets are hoping to turn that unpredictability into a strength, but if the team is going to turn...
