According to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, the long nightmare that was Brian Shaw's tenure as coach of the Denver Nuggets has come to an end.

This isn't all that surprising, given what a disaster the Nuggets have been this season. Shaw took over a team that played a fun and fast version of basketball and turned into a plodding, disjointed mess that nobody who actually likes basketball ever wanted to watch.

The season seemed to hit a low point went Shaw publicly wondered if his players were losing games on purpose. Then things got even worse when Shaw told Rachel Nichols that he had started reading books about how to effectively communicate with his players, because he just doesn't understand millennials. But we really reached rock bottom on Sunday, when it became painfully clear to everyone that Shaw's players had completely quit on him.


This season was lost almost as soon as it started, and Shaw and the Nuggets should just be thankful that the Lakers and Knicks are having equally disastrous campaigns in bigger markets. It's easier to hide a burning clown car in the mountains.
