Last year the Denver Nuggets were one of the deepest teams in the league. Managing to have the most games lost due to injury of any team in the league and still finishing with the second-best record in the Western Conference is a true testament to that. When they got eliminated from the playoffs, most fans felt like the team was legitimately one or two guys away from being a championship contender. One hole that hasn’t been filled since Carmelo Anthony, and needs to be filled is the starting small forward spot. Thanks to their depth, the Nuggets have seven different options for who can fill the starting and backup small forward role. So let’s go through the potential options.
The Denver Broncos just completed their second preseason game out of five facing the Seattle Seahawks. As you should expect, there were goods and bads. We finally got to see most of the presumed starting group hit the field for the first time this season for one drive then let the backups hash it out and continue to make their arguments for why they should be on this roster or another team’s roster.

The key to their failures over the last two years: coaching. It has been atrocious at best. Bad schemes that consistently misuse players talent, as well as terrible game management, were the ultimate problems that sunk the Broncos last year. After missing the playoffs for the third straight year, under a brand-new coaching regime led by Vic Fangio, the Broncos are looking to right the ship and go back to being a perennial playoff team.

“Be number one at everything and do it the right way.” Ask anyone within the Broncos organization what the core values of the franchise are, and that’s what you would hear. Those are not just some random words, it’s by design. Set by someone who has been called ‘the greatest owner in sports,’ Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen.
Let’s just start by saying: what a year for the Denver Nuggets. The first playoff berth in 6 years, first all-star in 8 years, first playoff series win in a decade, all with one of the youngest teams in the league and the most injured team in the National Basketball Association (NBA). I’ll get into how it all happened and possible offseason moves and storylines to look forward to, so let’s get into it. Continue reading →
It all comes down to this. Sixteen teams entered. Just two teams remain. The Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors have emerged as the best team from their respective conferences, and now it’s time to figure out which team is the best team in the entire league.
