The All-Star break is typically a time for some much-needed R&R. Players around the league might enjoy a weekend getaway to Miami, the unofficial destination for those not taking part in the league’s All-Star festivities, or a quick respite back home before the regular season’s stretch run. Will Barton usually heads to Baltimore for a few days over the All-Star…...

For the first time in weeks, Michael Malone had a full roster at his disposal for practice. That luxury lasted for less than an hour until Trey Lyles exited stage right with an apparent injury. “We were healthy for 50 minutes coming out of the break,” Malone said. “Which was great while it lasted.” Its been that type of year…...

IT’S THE WEEK OF AUGUST 13, 2018, six weeks before training camp would open, and over 1,400 miles away from the Nuggets’ practice court, the foundation for Denver’s 2018-19 season was laid. The venue was Paul Millsap’s state-of-the-art Core 4 facility in Atlanta, Georgia where for one week Denver moved its entire basketball operations department. During the day, spirited 5-on-5…

Wind and Clark debate a number of topics, including the easiest potential first-round opponent for Denver, who will have a better career out of Nuggets rookies Jarred Vanderbilt and Michael Porter Jr., will Denver’s starting lineup be able to recapture its 2017-18 and early-season efficiency post-All-Star break, and is there a max-level free agent next summer that’s a legitimate target for…

Nikola Jokic took care of good friend Nikola Vucevic in the first round of the Taco Bell Skills Challenge Saturday night at All-Star Weekend. But eventual champion Jayson Tatum was too much for The Joker in round two. Jokic was well ahead of Tatum on the way back down the floor, just needing to sink the three from the top…...

Continuity and chemistry. That’s what Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly attributes his team’s success to this season. “Continuity of the best coaching staff in the NBA and the continuity and chemistry with an ownership group that saw our vision,” he told BSN Denver earlier this week. “And it was kind of a far-fetched vision that we’re going to build…...

Tim Connelly’s fingerprints are all over this Nuggets roster. From Nikola Jokic, who Connelly and his front office plucked from the Adriatic League in 2014, to Malik Beasley, Monte Morris, Gary Harris, Jamal Murray and Juancho Hernangomez, six players that Connelly had a hand in drafting who have all been parts of the Nuggets’ rotation at one time or another…...

The Nuggets were dead in the water, trailing by 15 points in the first quarter against the Kings. Until Isaiah Thomas checked. Thomas walked to the scorer’s table with under four minutes to go in the first quarter. He checked in moments later to a standing ovation. After an 11-month recovery from hip surgery, Thomas was back. He sparked the…...

As Isaiah Thomas walked to the scorer’s table, the Pepsi Center faithful began to rise. One by one they welcomed Thomas to the game and his first competitive basketball in 11 months with a standing ovation, an appropriate gesture for the two-time All-Star. Thomas’ long-awaited Nuggets debut was a smashing success. After a productive first-quarter stint, Thomas sparked Denver after halftime…...

Everything changed for Isaiah Thomas on April 15, 2017. After his sister Chyna tragically died in a car accident nearly two years ago, Thomas took a new outlook on life. Ever since, he’s brushed aside the negative energy that fills up his Twitter timeline daily and only focuses on the positive. So to all of Thomas’ naysayers, the cynics, the doubters…...
