No Nuggets All-Stars in 2002

Thursday, January 31st, 2002

Tweet Maybe you are not surprised, but many (including myself) feel that Nick should be there. Unfortunately, I think Nick hurt his chances a bit in December by demanding a trade, and his production has slipped a little lately as he sinks into an emotional funk over the mounting Nuggets losses. Stevie Francis is an […]

McDyess Update – Better News

Sunday, January 27th, 2002

Tweet Good news Nuggets fans – Antonio McDyess played in a scrimmage on Saturday and now feels that he can definitely be back this February. He said he had a “good alley-oop dunk, but another time I tried to dunk and couldn’t make it to the rim.” Several Nuggets commented that he was unstoppable in […]

Antonio McDyess Update

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2002

Tweet February nears, and rumors are circling that McDyess won’t be ready to play. In December, the Nuggets and Antonio were still optimistic, and McDyess was talking about a January comeback. Once he got on both legs and realized how far away he still was from 100% strength in both legs, he wisely backed off […]

Is it time for Nick to leave Denver?

Saturday, January 19th, 2002

Tweet I never thought I would be saying “yes” to that question, but times have changed. Nick has reiterated every chance he gets that his request to be traded back on December 8th, after a loss to Cleveland, is still his wish. On January 18th, he was quoted as saying, “Nothing has changed. I hope […]

Friday, January 11th, 2002

Tweet My wonderful husband let me take a girlfriend to the Nugget’s game last night on one condition….that I write an editorial of the game! So here it is: (Please excuse all spelling mistakes!) Cleveland who??? I couldn’t name a single player on the team, but it really didn’t matter since it was the Nick […]

By George, the Nuggets are not on McCloud Nine

Thursday, January 10th, 2002

Tweet The season of turmoil continues. George McCloud is the latest malcontent on the Nuggets roster. I have to be on the side of the coaching staff on this one though. As with many cases, George’s unhappiness stems from not enough playing time in his eyes. Let me say this first though, I do like […]

Andersen In, Scott Out

Monday, January 7th, 2002

Tweet The Nuggets activated 6’10 forward Chris Andersen from the injury list on Sunday, and waived center Shawnelle Scott. I don’t know enough about Andersen to have a feeling on whether this was a wide move or not (he’s only played 1 minute so far, before going on the injured list Dec. 4th) but it […]

Tweet Clyde Drexler joined the Nuggets bench today as an assistant to interim head coach, Mike Evans. Clyde had originally come to Denver back in September as a special assistant to new GM Kiki Vandeweghe. Clyde joins Kim Hughes, John MacLeod and Louie Dampier as Nuggets coaching assistants. I am interested to see what kind […]
