(Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty Images)   The Denver Nuggets have failed to successfully defend their NBA championship from last season, and while their roster remains very strong, at least on paper, there is some concern they could find themselves weakened next season. Starting shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, a key member of their roster the last two years, has a player option for next season that he can decline in order to become a free agent this summer. If he does opt out, it would be costly for the Nuggets to keep him, and per Evan Sidery, the Philadelphia 76ers, San Antonio S ..read more

(Photo by C. Morgan Engel/Getty Images)   The Denver Nuggets are a good team because of Nikola Jokic. They’re a very good team because of his chemistry with Jamal Murray. And they’re a contending team because of Mike Malone’s coaching. However, they were a championship-caliber team because of their depth, and that didn’t show in Game 7. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope’s shot wasn’t falling, Aaron Gordon wasn’t a factor on either side of the glass, and Michael Porter Jr. struggled mightily from the floor. That’s why they weren’t able to get the job done, at least according to former NFL star Keys ..read more

(Photo by C. Morgan Engel/Getty Images)   The Denver Nuggets looked poised to win back-to-back NBA championships or at least make it to the NBA Finals again. Then, the Minnesota Timberwolves made sure to put an end to those aspirations, taking care of business with back-to-back wins in Games 6 and 7. Mike Malone’s team fought hard and climbed it’s way back in this series after losing the first two games at home, but eventually, they couldn’t finish the job. According to former NBA star Tim Hardaway, plenty of that had to do with Bruce Brown’s absence. "The Denver Nuggets missed their ene ..read more

(Photo by C. Morgan Engel/Getty Images)   Nikola Jokic is clearly the Denver Nuggets’ best player, and they march to the beat of his drum. Even when the other players don’t play that well, Jokic gives them an opportunity to take care of business. However, the reason why they’ve been so great over the past couple of years is that they’re a finely-tuned machine, with players that feed off each other and multiple guys that could step up and have a big game on any given night. That includes Michael Porter Jr., a three-level scorer who could be a primary option somewhere else, but that settles ..read more

And while this was clearly a big blow to the Nuggets, Nikola Jokic was still a class act about it. When asked whet ..read more
