The Denver Nuggets are coming off of four excellent wins, pulling away slightly from the Portland Trail Blazers in the competition for 8th seed in the Western Conference.Through hard work, this young team’s identity is slowly starting to emerge allowing everyone’s roles to come into focus.He and Nikola Jokic, after a rocky start, began to find a somewhat harmonious existence. Gallo nearly shot a career high in field goal percentage (44.7% vs 44.8% his rookie year).
Joel: Gallo had one of his most efficient scoring seasons ever, with a career high .622 true shooting percentage, and a .902 free throw percentage, which was fourth-best in the league. While it may seem unfair to single out any Nuggets player for bad defense since so many have that trait in common, as an ostensive team leader playing team-high minutes per game, Gallinari needs to set a higher standard, and his too-frequent lack of defensive effort slightly tarnishes an otherwise impressive season.
If you're a conspiracy theorist and you believe the rumors that Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries is nothing more than a plot point for her series of reality TV shows then listen up.
A new report claims that New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries wasn't the first casting choice for Kim's husband. and Kim were both interested in her dating a known New York athlete to pump up the drama for the debut season of "Kourtney & Kim Take New York," even explaining to the then 22-year-old basketball player that dating Kim on camera would be a good move for his career. Kim and Kris rushed to the altar after only six months of dating, which might seem suspect, but then you recall that Kim's sister Khloe married L. Laker Lamar Odom after just three weeks of dating and the two just celebrated their two-year anniversary. Kim and Kris were apparently set up by a friend of Kim's after she told her how cute she found the 6'9 forward.
From the Nuggets flameout against the Golden State Warriors in the playoffs (who doesn’t think Gallo would have SIGNIFICANTLY helped the Nuggets that series? As Nuggets fans we cannot escape that moment and how it fundamentally changed this franchise forever.
) to the ensuing departures of Masai Ujiri and head coach George Karl. Gallo was that good in 2013 and a heavy bit of revisionist history has gone on to make it seem otherwise. It also brought into focus the inherent quandary that is The Rooster. Despite looking awkward he has a sometimes great one on one scoring game.
