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

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,

49ers next gm still tbd after urday interviews


at some point, the wayward 49ers will hire a general manager to not only form a power couple with their next coach but also address a cavernous roster in need of playmakers. urday marked a key step in that direction. george paton and terry mcdonough had follow-up interviews for the general manager opening, doing so in atlanta alongside the franchise’s projected coach, kyle shanahan.although either gm finalist can be hired any time, shanahan officially can’t sign on until his duties as the falcons offensive coordinator are completed after the super bowl on feb. 5.sunday’s pro bowl illustrates the 49ers roster’s sad state: the franchise won’t be represented by any player in the all-star game for the first time since 2005. in contrast, the 2012 49ers had 10 earn pro bowl honors, although they
