Photo of the Day: Danilo Gallinari Hangs with Pitbull

Gallinari and Pitbull Feature

For anyone who doesn’t know who Pitbull is, you’re not alone. He is a Latin hip hop/pop singer (I guess?) who is literally on the radio all the time. Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari is apparently a fan of his, for some strange reason. He attended his concert on Tuesday night, which is where today’s Photo of the Day comes from.

Bernucca: “Soft” Wizards Staggering Toward All-Star Break

paulwall

After the Washington Wizards ended a season-high five-game losing streak Saturday with a 37-point victory over the Brooklyn Nets, Marcin Gortat wasn’t quite ready to declare that their earth was back on its axis. “At the end of the day, it was Brooklyn, so we can’t get really excited,” he said. There’s nothing like perspective. And Gortat is right: One win against a plodding, tired team is nothing to get excited about. What the Wizards should be is concerned. Prior to the win

SH Blog: Mavs Get Win in Rondo’s Debut, Cavs Handle Short-Handed Grizz

BOS_Rondo_Rajon (1)

Rajon Rondo made his debut count with the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night against the San Antonio Spurs. The Mavs new point guard scored six points on 3-of-11 shooting and dished out nine assists, adding seven rebounds in a 99-93 victory. It seems like a typical Rondo night. He didn’t score until the third quarter, was well below 40% from the floor, but made all the plays we’ve seen him make in Boston the past eight plus years. [Read more…]

Five Things To Watch: Denver Nuggets

fariedusa

The Denver Nuggets head into the 2014-15 season with ambitious goals. The Nuggets are built around a young core that won a franchise-record 57 games only two seasons ago, only to be derailed by injuries and eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. That early exit precipitated the departure of their GM and coach. Last season, the injuries kept coming and the Nuggets missed the playoffs for the first time since 2003, the year they drafted Carmelo Anthony. The core is

Photo of the Day: Brace for the Return of Nate Robinson

Nate Feature

Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson is a guy that a lot of NBA fans love to root for. He’s a mere man in a land dominated by giants on the hardwood. But that never stops him from competing and showing the fire he brings to his team every time he steps on the court. Listed at 5’9″ (on a good day), fans and players alike believe he’s smaller than that. But he’s got heart, and a pretty badass nickname –

Photo of the Day: Danilo Gallinari Ready to Get Back on the Court

Gallinari Feature

When Danilo Gallinari tore his left ACL at the end of the 2012-13 season, the Denver Nuggets’ hopes of a deep playoff run were essentially ended. Gallinari suffered the injury during a late season matchup with Dallas, and without its leading sharpshooter, Denver was upset in the first round by Golden State. After being diagnosed as an ACL tear, it was yet to be seen whether Gallo would be ready for any of the 2013-14 season after he underwent surgery. In

Bernucca: You Can Have the NCAA Tournament

ncaa

I don’t like the NCAA Tournament. I don’t like that college basketball’s regular season provides little postseason incentive. I don’t like that the coach is a bigger personality than the players. I don’t like that the games are played on neutral courts. I don’t like that one bad game or bad call or bad break can end a team’s season. I don’t like that “close” becomes a synonym for “well-played.” And I don’t like that poor play determines the outcome much
