Chris Dempsey: Afflalo on the state of the team: "Talent-wise we’re fine. But it’s been proven year-in & year-out that talent isn’t the end-all, be-all." "You have to have some cohesiveness, you have to have game plans that work with the group that’s on the floor and hopefully we can get that all together.” Twitter @dempseypost

"I started a different group in the second half," said Shaw. "A group that I thought was gonna at least fight and go out fighting, regardless of what happened. So, we go from a 45 point second quarter to a 46 point second half that we gave up. We almost gave up as many points in that second quarter as we did in the whole second half. "So I commend the guys: Ty, Alonzo Gee, Wilson, D.A., and J.J. - who started the third quarter and didn't give up, kept fighting, and showed what a little bit of effort can do," Shaw continued. "There's nothing else that needs to be said other than the guys who give that kind of effort will be rewarded by being on the floor and playing." denverstiffs.com

"I tweaked it pretty bad," he said. "But I continued to duke it out during that game. I think it's just from going so hard and pushing the (left) leg to get so strong that this (right) hamstring is kind of weak. So I've got to get with (Nuggets strength and conditioning coach Steve) Hess and get this leg stronger." Robinson did not believe that he would miss Denver's game Sunday at Portland, though that remains to be seen. "I'm just going to ice it," Robinson said. "I'll be ready for next game. Whatever it takes, I don't have time to sit out." Denver Post

The only official piece of business left out there is the matter of picking up the team option for next season on center Timofey Mozgov's contract. That can be done at any time until June 29. The deadline date of many of those, however, are individually negotiated. In any case, the Nuggets are expected to pick up the team option on Mozgov's contract, which will pay him nearly $5 million next season, the final year of his current contract. He would then be a restricted free agent in the summer of 2016. Denver Post

Player contracts due to expire at the end of this season belong to guard Nate Robinson and forward Darrell Arthur. Both have expressed a desire to return to the team, but both will be unrestricted free agents next summer, free to sign with any team in the league. Meanwhile, Arron Afflalo has a player option for his final season. It will pay him $7.5 million for his last season, and he would be an unrestricted free agent at its end, in 2016. Or he could opt out of the final year and become an unrestricted free agent next summer. Denver Post

Walking off the floor after the Nuggets' 89-79 win in Denver on opening night Wednesday with 22 points and 17 rebounds to his name, Faried mouthed off about Smith's evening. "Josh Smith, we let him keep shooting," Faried said on the team's website after the game. "And he ended up with 25, but he still kept shooting. He shot them out of the game." Detroit News



Carmelo Anthony is way up there, but can't beat two legends from the run-and-gun teams of the 80's.
