The Nuggets Should Trade Nene

The Nuggets Should Trade Nene

Nuggets owner Josh Kroenke and general manager Masai Ujiri have built an impressive roster in relatively short time. They squeezed Timofey Mozgov out of the Knicks in the Carmelo Anthony deal. And they shrewdly dealt a second-round pick to the Dallas Mavericks for Rudy Fernandez and Corey Brewer. Smart NBA executives carve out opportunities, patiently wait for the right time to pull the trigger and then pounce on the prize. The time has come for Kroenke and Ujiri to make their boldest ...

Nuggets on the Ropes

Nuggets on the Ropes

By Doug Ottewill I put a call into Robert Horry yesterday. Didn’t hear back. It’s cool, Bob. Catch ya next time. New phone? Probably didn’t recognize the number? No worries, my man. With San Antonio next up on the slate, I wanted to ask the former Spur one simple question: Why can’t the Denver Nuggets finish? Heading into last night’s game against the San Antonio Spurs, I predicted that the depleted Nuggets would once again give it their all – just like they’ve ... Full Story

Berthoud Boys Basketball Team Routs Highland

Spartans Top Huskies 67-45 By Dan Karpiel Sports Writer   Even in the world of sports, bigger does not always mean better.

Brush Takes The Broom To Berthoud Basketball

Boys and Girls Teams Lose to Beetdiggers By Dan Karpiel Sports Writer   The Berthoud High boys basketball team had no trouble finding the rim in their Friday night game with the Brush Beetdiggers. Getting the ball through the net for points, however, was a different story. The Spartans lost 48-42 to their 3A Patriot League rivals thanks in large part to a dismal 14-for-58 shooting effort. The loss drops Berthoud to 6-5 on the season with a 2-2 mark in conference play. The ... Full Story

Thriller As Spartans Slay Roughriders

Thriller As Spartans Slay Roughriders

Berthoud Boys Basketball Tops Roosevelt 58-55 By Dan Karpiel Sports Writer   The Berthoud Spartans are grateful that high school basketball games run for only 32 minutes; if games lasted any longer the Spartans could very well have emerged from Friday night’s contest with Roosevelt as the losing team rather than the winning one. The Spartans were able to hold off a fourth period rally by the visiting Roughriders to win the non-league contest by 58-55 final ... Full Story
