shootarounds have added importance with dwindling practice time


phoenix – lately, the pressure has been turned up on nuggets’ shootarounds. in some respects, they’ve taken on a practice feel simply because there’s been no formal practicing of late.for instance, the nuggets did not have one regular practice last week. and the nuggets had three days in which they could have been held. but the packed nature of the schedule of late, coupled with injuries have forced nuggets coach michael malone to get creative in improving the team while making sure he has as close to a healthy roster as he can.“the london trip was a great trip, but because you only play one game in a week, there’s going to be blowback from that,” malone said. “so we come back from that trip and its six games in nine nights. i just have to be smart. we’re trying to rest our guys, we’ve got






jameer nelson coming through in the clutch when nuggets need him most


after the nuggets beat phoenix 123-112 on urday night, their seventh win in nine games, jameer nelson did his best to deflect a spotlight being turned on him.“i’m not going to talk about myself,” the veteran point guard said with a grin.that subject, however, is becoming unavoidable.nelson has put together a solid season for the nuggets, and they have needed his contribution. playing for a team with a stable of young point guards, nelson has been a steadying force, a calming influence when a teammate such as emmanuel mudiay or jamal murray needs him.but it is nelson’s production on the court that has been most helpful. his scoring average — 9.0 points per game — is his best since the 2012-13 season. he also is averaging 25.6 minutes, and his shooting percentage (.449) is much better than i






jameer nelson coming through in the clutch when nuggets need him most


in the postgame locker room after the nuggets’ win over phoenix, their seventh win the last nine games, jameer nelson did his best to deflect a spotlight being turned on him. “i’m not going to talk about myself,” he said with a grin. that subject, however, is reaching unavoidable levels. nelson has put together a solid season for the nuggets, and they’ve needed his contributions badly. with a stable of young point guards, he’s been the steadying force, a calming influence when players like emmanuel mudiay or jamal murray need him. but it’s his production on the court that has been most helpful. in an average of 25.6 minutes, his 9.0 points is his highest average since 2012-13. his shooting percentage (44.9) is up 8 percent over a year ago and is tied for the fifth-highest percentage in his






drafting for need is for losers. how about the broncos draft christian mccaffrey


it seems every nfl draftnik has the broncos taking wisconsin offensive tackle ryan ramczyk in the first round. i would prefer a thump-and-cover inside linebacker, another cornerback in case aqib talib acts up, or my personal favorite, alabama tight end o.j. howard.-brandon, fort collinskiz: i like the way you think! only a knucklehead drafts for need in the first round. draft in the first round for impact. howard could indeed make an impact for the broncos in the red zone. but if denver wants more touchdowns, is there a player in the draft that can score in more ways than christian mccaffrey, the pride of stanford and valor christian high school?why has the development of nuggets point guard been so poor?-marvin, aurorakiz: perhaps we all got a wee bit carried away with the emmanuel mudiay

unique skill set of denver nuggets' nikola jokic turning heads


it will be hard for nikola jokic to draw a more favorable comparison this season than the one presented by hall of fame point guard isaiah thomas two weeks ago.“he reminds me of magic johnson,” thomas said as he courtside in london with the nuggets’ television broadcast team during denver’s victory over the indiana pacers.there are probably few quicker ways for jokic, the nuggets’ 21-year-old, 6-foot-10 rising star, to gain national attention for his diverse game than being mentioned with one of best and most ver ile players in nba history — by a contemporary, no less.but it was a far more low-key parallelism made last week that perhaps best captures the unique and increasingly dominant skill set of a player who is quickly grabbing the league’s attention.“he looks like a water polo player,






the thunderous punch - fantasy basketball blog at razzball.com


so this isn’t a basketball intro, but it was probably the biggest news of the night!  in a game where the thunder were playing the terrible mavs squad, kanter managed to work himself up enough to punch the bench chair… unfortunately, he’s now out for 6 weeks.  kanter had been putting up 4th round value recently, so this is a big blow to fantasy owners and the thunder.anywayssssss – here’s what happened last night!mavericks at thunder (8:00 pm est on tnt) – final score: 98 – 109 thunder winharrison barnes – 31/2/2/1/0 – an empty line with only 2 threes.  i really am not a fan… he’s a good scorer though.justin anderson – a solid 17/5/1/0/0 – isn’t it sad that these are the best two lines from the mavs side??russell westbrook – 45/8/3/2/0 – he had his s going tonight, and just didn’t dish it

the screen actors’ guild (sag) awarded lily tomlin a lifetime achievement award on sunday night and the pioneering lgbtq activist and comic actor didn’t mince words when addressing the current political situation.“did you hear? the doomsday clock has been moved to two and half minutes before midnight?” tomlin said. “and this award, it e just in the nick of time.”“when the great ruth gordon received an oscar for the first time at 72, she said, ‘i can’t tell you how encouraging a thing like this could be,'” tomlin said. “wait a minute. i’ve realized i’m older than ruth gordon was at that point.”she said that with the joy of this kind of lifetime award comes a kind of sadness, that now looking back she wishes she’d done “so much more” to earn it. “i wasted a lot of time being ambitious about

political issues, travel ban a running theme at sag awards


if anyone thought that the winners and presenters at sunday night’s 23rd screen actors guild awards would avoid addressing the protests happening at airports around the nation, they were wrong. the show, telecast on tnt and tbs live from the shrine exposition center in los angeles, was political from the opening moments, with a series of nominated actors in the audience talking about what it means to be an actor, which includes, said “scandal’s” kerry washington, expressing political opinions.although the show normally eschews a formal host, ashton kutcher did welcome viewers to the broadcast and “everyone in airports that belong in my america. we love you and we welcome you.”the night’s first winner, julia louis-dreyfus, addressed the issue head-on in her acceptance speech for performance






never dull nba dominates in court of social media – the denver post


the nba is the most interesting sport on earth.there’s a little hyperbole there, yes. but there’s never a dull moment in the ociation. and no league, but no league, does social media battling with the stinging precision and captivating prose of the nba. it’s not even close.and it is oh, so entertaining.last week was divided into two parts –- one amusing. the other? probably best described with the wide-eyed, blushing emoji.memphis’ chandler parsons and portland’s c.j. mccollum battled late friday night in a spat whose flames were first stoked by the trail blazers’ team twitter account. they posted a video of parsons air-balling a 3-point s in that game, saying “to be fair, the nba 3-point line is really, really far away from the basket.”to which parsons tweeted back: “@trailblazers good lu






warriors embarr clippers with stephen curry latest third quarter


oakland — stephen curry, a man of many rituals and low-key analyst, wished had an explanation. he would love to have a secret to keep close to the vest, or a process he could explain.but after another third quarter explosion — 25 points as the warriors wiped the oracle arena hardwood with the visiting chris paul-less clippers 144-98 — curry had no enlightened answer for his third-quarter turn-ups.it was the 17th time in his career he scored at least 20 points in a quarter. many of those are in the third quarter. urday, he made 8 of 11 from the field, including five 3-pointers, to go with six rebounds and three ists. he outscored the clippers by himself as the warriors turned a comfortable lead into a national embarr ment for los angeles.the unique part about this latest big quarter: it was






political road map: some believe there's bias baked into the official descriptio


of the many tasks facing atty. gen. xavier becerra in his new job, it was an unheralded duty that republican legislators wanted to pin him down on during recent confirmation hearings in sacramento: the vetting of ballot initiatives.the attorney general is tasked under california law to write a brief title and summary of each measure that will end up on the state ballot.“what will you do to ensure that you’re being descriptive and objective, and following the election code, when you write those ballot titles and summaries?” asked emblyman jordan cunningham (r-templeton).to understand the question requires knowing a bit of california political history. attorneys general have long had the duty to collect and then prepare proposed initiatives before the measure’s backers can begin collecting v






suiting up brock osweiler, alex smith and more – the denver post


when quarterback brock osweiler wanted to give the 22 guys on the houston texans offensive line custom suits as a dual christmas gift and thanks for protecting him during the 2016 season, paige hutt was unfazed. it was a large order for the stylist and custom clothier, but it wasn’t the first time she’d been asked to outfit a bunch of really big and tall men.she’d already done four similar projects for other players, including former broncos punter britton colquitt and kansas city chiefs quarterback alex smith.requests like this come with the territory. hutt has been making custom suits for seven years and currently works out of windsor for b.spoke, a california-based clothier. although she counts a couple of businessmen on her roster, her clientele is mostly professional athletes from a r






where customers can watch embly of “handmade skis from colorado trees” – the den


after karol groswold tried a pair of denver-made meier skis on a recent demo day at winter park, she had to have a pair. she loved the way they performed, but when she heard customers can order custom-made top-sheet g hics and even participate in designing them, she was sold.customers can buy skis off the rack at meier’s new factory, visible to thousands of motorists daily in the industrial area on the east side of interstate 25 between sixth avenue and colfax. they can watch skis being made by hand and listen to a sales pitch from a “ski-tender” who serves beer and beta on meier’s various models, which have wood cores made from colorado aspen and beetle-kill pine. if they want, they can design their own g hics, and that hit home for groswold.the meier factory is only a few blocks from whe

some fun drama in the nba this weekend!  and not the kind about the poppy ers being a super trainwreck…  more fun shade being thrown than that!while beating the grizzlies 112-109 friday night, the blazers official twitter account decided to stir up some ish by clowning chandler parsons on this airball:“to be fair, the nba 3-point line is really, really far away from the basket.”  you tell em, portland!  then parsons tweeted back “good luck in the lottery show year”.  well, while kinda a burn, you just missed a trey by about 7 feet, and you’ve been a bigger trainwreck than the knicks this year…  and c.j. mccollum didn’t let it slide either:fantasy owners feel the same way!  all my non-parsons teams are doing way better than where i wasted a damned pick on this schmohawk in the middle rounds






in a nce of earnings calls, apparel brands face 'the trump question'


what to say? as corporate chieftains prepare for a round of no doubt excruciatingly painful fourth-quarter conference calls with wall street, they find themselves on unusually uncertain ground.technology is changing everything. amazon is in ascent. brick-and-mortar stores are closing. millennials are not warming to established bands. and, now, there’s “the trump question.”president trump is just starting to follow through on his promises to change almost everything, from the corporate tax rate to rules that govern international trade and help set the cost of making goods.fashion was already in the midst of overlapping and seismic changes that are only speeding up with poor holiday sales and more store closures.but the trump phenomenon is a topic for fresh conver ion; a rolling wave of poli
