Ty Lawson Believes “People Are Probably Going To Sleep On” The Nuggets

Ty Lawson

After 57 wins and home-court advantage in the first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs, the Denver Nuggets lost Andre Iguodala to Golden State, let Coach of the Year, George Karl walk, and lost star GM Masai Ujiri to Toronto. Last season they won only 36 games under rookie head coach Brian Shaw, a big step back after so positive a 2012-13 campaign. Speedy point guard Ty Lawson believes that’s why they’ll come in under the radar next year. Read More »

Kenneth Faried Says He’s “Extremely Surprised” To Be Starter On Team USA

Kenneth Faried

Kenneth Faried was among the longest of shots to make Team USA’s World Cup roster when the finalized pool of training camp candidates was announced in mid-July. Even after LaMarcus Aldridge withdrew late in the process, the Denver Nuggets forward was firmly behind Kevin Love and Blake Griffin in USA Basketball’s power forward pecking order – and that was even before considering the merits of guys like Kevin Durant that can ably function as nominal interior players in international competition.

A sizable group of clever franchises continued the latter trend today, using the Twitter hashtag #NBAsitcoms to combine the public’s love of hoops and (mostly crappy) television. Read More »

Afflalo: Nuggets Are “A Championship Caliber Team”

Arron Afflalo

Arron Afflalo won’t be the primary option for the Denver Nuggets this season like he was with the Orlando Magic in 2013-2014, and the career-best numbers he compiled then will surely suffer as a result. After playing two years with a franchise still in the early stages of a ground floor re-building process, though, Afflalo is thrilled to be back in Denver. And despite an absolutely loaded Western Conference and the Nuggets’ disappointing 36-46 record last season, he believes his is “a championship caliber team.” Read More »

Self-Made Banner Above Gary Harris’ Childhood Bed Fueled Him To NBA

Adam Silver, Gary Harris

Gary Harris was one of draft-night’s biggest sliders. Projected by some as a top-10 pick, the Michigan State guard fell well out of the lottery before being snatched up by the Denver Nuggets (via trade with the Chicago Bulls) with the 19th selection of the first round. Given his inspirational ambition since childhood, though, it certainly seems that Harris won’t let that relative disappointment affect his NBA career. Read More »

Video: NBA’s Most Amazing Bench Reactions This Year

Portland Trail Blazers

It’s almost as much fun as the play involved, but the eruptions from an NBA bench can be just as delirious as some on the college level–though maybe not as coordinated as some. With that in mind, the NBA released the best bench reactions from the 2013-14 NBA season, so try and see how they compare to last season’s iteration. Read More »

Video: Harrison Barnes Smashes On Aaron Brooks

Harrison Barnes

The Dubs had already secured the No. 6 seed in the West before last night’s game against the Nuggets, so Mark Jackson rested his starters. That meant Harrison Barnes (30 points) and Jordan Crawford (41 points) shouldered the majority of the offensive load in Golden State’s 116-112 win. Read More »
