Sounds Like The Nuggets Have Given Up

It takes a village to create a middenheap as large and as foul as the 2014-15 Denver Nuggets. A poorly assembled roster, a coach who's in over his head, and a cheapskate owner have all combined to make this so much more special than just a typical lost season—the players may be actively sabotaging their coach!

Oh My God Oh My God I Think Russell Westbrook Could Beat Up My Dad

Last night, while we were all arguing about a black-and-blue dress, Russell Westbrook and a gaggle of tall men who were not Kevin Durant were a half-hour down the road from where the llamas were dodging the cops, playing the Phoenix Suns. If you missed it, or forgot, the Oklahoma City Thunder lost a heartbreaker in… » 2/27/15 2:55pm Friday 2:55pm

Jusuf Nurkic Picked Up The Best, Most Disrespectful Technical Possible

Usually Nuggets rookie Jusuf Nurkic is being conventionally disrespectful, talking shit to Marc Gasol after swatting his shot or taunting DeMarcus Cousins all the way down the court after hitting a jumper in his face. But tonight he stepped up his subtle goon game by softly dropping the ball into Markieff Morris's… » 2/26/15 12:34am Thursday 12:34am
