No injuries please

I am so excited about this season - I am more than ready to put last season behind us. Let's hope the Denver Nuggets are too! All we have to do is avoid the injuries from last year, and that'll be a good start...

Hodge coming back to the Denver Nuggets?

Speaking of getting well, sounds like Julius Hodge might actually make it back onto the court with the Denver Nuggets after the shooting he suffered back in April - if they decide to sign him, that is. Personally, I think they should do it. Best case scenario, he does great and turns into a real crowd draw (who wouldn't buy a ticket to see such a great story of courage and heart and all that, right?). Worst case scenario, they could always make a movie out of it...

Get Well Soon

Well, good news and bad news for the Nuggests. Good news - Kenyon Martin brought in 20 points and eight rebounds against the Indiana Pacers, leading them to a 114-102 win Wednesday night at U.S. Bank Arena. Bad news - he couldn't walk after the third quarter.

Here's hoping recovery's quick, Kenyon. We need you!

Denver Nuggets newsbites

It's hard to believe we're only 2 weeks away from the 2006-2007 NBA season! I'm trying to find time to watch more updates on my teams on TV, but I find myself online more often than not. I found a good page here thatwill probably keep me occupied for the next couple hours. Seems like a good read, and not only because of his optimistic attitude toward the Denver Nuggets. (But that helps.)

3 years gone, 3 years to come

The decision's made - George Karl stays on with the Denver Nuggets until 2009! Seems like a no-brainer to me given his performance these last three years, but I suppose it's always nice to feel appreciated.

Was this really a surprise to anyone?

The Denver Nugget.

I can’t claim that I've been keeping up with players as well as I should. I check news and read over some of the fluff here and there. I’ve been pretty busy lately. So today I’m reading along and here is something I found really impressive. Earl Boykins of the Denver Nuggets is the second shortest NBA player in history at 5’5”, only to be beat by Muggsy Bogues who was two inches shorter. Maybe it’s me but I love these underdog stories, it makes you feel good inside, like the first time I watched Joe Dirt. My buddies at the office teased me for sporting my blonde mullet wig I bought at Party Pig but I stood firm and they don’t tease me anymore.

The most impressive thing that I read about Boykins is that he can bench press 315 lbs. I dunno about you but I’m keeping Boykins on my speed dial, just in case the neighbors complain about the transmission I have sittin’ in the front yard.

evans re-signs

The Nuggets re-signed Reggie Evans recently for a multi-year contract. Warkentien said he highly values the role Evans played last season in the Nuggets’ sweep of the Northwest Division. He was one of the best rebounders in the NBA by the minute last season, averaging 8.7 rebounds per game in 23.3 minutes over 26 games. His career average with the Sonics and Nuggets is 7.3 rebounds per game in 288 games.
