What happened yesterday was a two-way street, and the Mavs should just move on and play for some pride in game 4.


As far as Cuban.....No class, he thinks he can do whatever he wants just because he owns an NBA team. He disgusts me.

So amazing

Im watching the Rockets-Lakers game right now (Rockets killing right now), the announcers are not even talking bout that game all they keep saying is how great denver looks. That Denver is a more defensive commited team :eek:, and that they would take our bench over the Lakers bench. Also that right now the Lakers are getting even more scare seeing as we just won a game where we couldnt do anything right.

Lakers watch out the Nuggz are coming :salute!:

It's called Gettin Paid or something like that

Maybe Im listening to a diff. game. I thought they were saying that the nuggs dont have enough power to keep up with the Lakers. The announcers always praise the dam Lakers.
I'll say this: If the Nuggs play like they did yesterday against the Lakers, we have no shot. They need to play tougher D and be able to create points off turnovers.

Rockets are killing right now! I hope we face LA, because Rockets can be a scary team...

I feel we can play with the Lakers as we are right now against the Mavs, I don't say I'm expecting a blowout each game but a close game that proves we can throw down!

Sorry but that call was a load of bull. They had a foul to give why wouldnt the ref call it. The nab also admitted the call was wrong so obviously it was bull. You cant not call the foul to make ateam go down 3 0. O ya and im not a Mavs fan. I like the Warriors =[

Stop talking about the supposed call, look in my sig and watch the 3 pt shot... You know that Wright didn't foul him, he bumped him a tiny bit but didn't foul him and backed away...

There were so many calls that we didn't get so big whoop it's over its done people need to stop talking about it.

It probably should have been called just simply because the refs knew that's what Dallas was going for.

Either way it wouldn't have made much of a difference though, Dallas is insanely over matched in this series. They played their best game of the series by far and still lost. Denver didn't look very sharp in the first half and still stayed in the game with them, that speaks for itself.

CoryWinget81
05-10-2009, 06:42 PM
From the officials point of view, I don't think could make a judgement on a "going for the ball" move. From that angle, it looks like a bump. Dallas was trying to get cute by running the clock down before the foul, when instead they should have wrapped him up as soon as he crossed half court.

And, honestly, if you need one call at the end of a game from an official to win it, then you probably didn't play well enough to win, and Jason Kidd said that EXACT same thing.

It's not the one foul they missed or the one 3 that Melo sunk, it was letting Denver even hang around at all after basically the whole team was in foul trouble. Dallas had us on our heels, and instead of dominating and taking it to the hole to seal the victory, they were trying to jack up jumpers and 3's to pad the score.

This is the worst I've seen Denver play in 2 months, aside from the Portland game to end the season, and we beat a GOOD team on their floor.

Nuggets might just be the best TEAM in the NBA.

I like how all the Nugget fans are trying to justify the win today. Intentional fouls aren't always wrapping the guy up. In fact most intentional fouls are just what Wright did. I want the Nuggets to take the series, but that was clearly a foul that wasn't called.

a) wright made the mistake of not making it clear what his intentions were...plus he threw his hands up as to say 'i didnt touch him' immediately after. his mistake

b) carlisle didnt tell the refs they wanted to intentionally foul - another mistake for them

c) refs rarely call that weak contact in the end of any game, let alone a close playoff game

d) melo made the shot - if he misses, NO ONE says a word about that non call...in fact they are all celebrating

e) if melo misses and they had made the call, the mavs would have been even more pissed off that the refs make a weak call like that in a close game

f) the two plays before were also huge mistakes on dallas part - one, how do you let melo score a free dunk in 2 seconds. if they play ANY defense on that possession, then there is less than 24 seconds left, we have to foul dallas and they win at the ft line. second, on the next possession why did dirk take a fade away jumper with 10 seconds left than wait til the shot clock went down? he gave us 7 seconds to work with instead of potentially 2.

all in all, the call isnt to blame. it was a weak intentional foul at best and the right no call. melo made the shot and thats all that matter.

how did the refs know what dallas was going to do? if they were going to intentionally foul you dont take a weak hack at it then throw your arms up. if anything it looked like he was saying 'no foul!'

and watch the fans, coaches and players on the bench...not a single one is crying foul when melo takes the shot. only after he made it. if their intention was to foul, they wouldnt have acted like that.

Seriously. Like I said, the Mavericks were trying to run the score up instead of winning the game. Happens to alot of teams. Carlisle is a better coach than the end of that game showed.

Just goes to show you that in order to be a good coach, the players have to let you coach them.

You know the more I think about Game 3, the more upset I get. Obviously not because of the result (Go Nuggets!!!) or even the fact that Dallas fans are upset (though they do fail to realize the Nuggets still would have had the ball with between 3 and 4 seconds left had the ref called the foul ;))

No, the reason I'm upset is Mark Cuban. How does he verbally abuse an opposing players' Mom? I have watched sports my whole life (over 40 years) and this is the first time I've ever heard of something like this. If I were David Stern, I would make Marky Boy stay home until the series is over, and possibly even ban him from ever attending a game K-Mart plays in again. :coffee:

Ok you said "watch out LA" which to me means:
A. You think theyre automatically going to beat Houston and
B. You think we're going to beat them in the Western Finals

I never said one thing about who is more talented...all I said is everyone is so high and mighty on the Lakers when Houston is looking very good(and the series is tied 2-2) and we're also very good. So theres absolutely no reason to assume theyll get to the finals and theres no reason to think theyre still the best team in the West. It just bothered me that you automatically assume that LA is going to beat Houston.

And why are you saying we're just good to try and make some kind of point. We're GOOD, really good, theres really no way around it. You might be trying to stay humble, but we're a damn good team whos playing damn good basketball right now.

Well Houston could only beat LA in LA with a monster game from Yao. Yao is gone. They wont beat them in LA, seeing as they didnt beat the Lakers in regular season. If you think Houston has a legit shot at the series im sorry. If im wrong i will glady admit i was, but im bout 99% sure that LA will not win this series.

And when a team wins its confrence by 10 or 11 games, thats for a resason. The Lakers are still the favorite, but with the way the nuggs looked thats why i said lakers watch out. bc we are the underdogs, they are the favorite.

I think Houston is better suited to play LA without Yao...

If you watched the first two games, Yao was effective when Powell or Bynum was
guarding him and he was able to get the ball deep and do his lil Yao stumble hook
shot thing. When Pau is on him, Pau fronts him and he is tall enough and athletic
enough to stop a pass from going over the top. Pau pretty much eliminates Yao
from the play on 80 to 90% of the posessions and seeming Houston kept trying
to run their offense through him they struggled in games 2 and 3. Then on
defense, Yao is too slow to step out and trap on a screen (LA has a lot of screens)
and couldn't handle Pau facing up.

If you noticed, in both games 2 and 3, when Landry and Hays came in it was a
different game. Now they aren't feeding the post unless it's open, ball
movement is better, Hays can cover Pau decently both posting and facing up,
and Landry offers more mobility on the offensive end. I think the combination of
Landry and Hays is better against the Lakers than Yao because Pau can shut down
Yao but Yao can't handle Pau. Clearly Yao doesn't have the quickness Houston
is gonna have to use to beat the Lakers, who as we can tell, are beatable to
quicker teams.

To me it's like Big Z for Cleveland against Atlanta. Horford, when healthy, is a
strong enough post defender to keep Big Z from having his way and far too mobile
for Z on offense. Even Pachulia has proven to play Z decently.

Dallas Fans are classless


Melo's fiancée gets into confrontation with Mavs fans
posted by: Jeffrey Wolf

DALLAS - The playoff series between the Denver Nuggets and the Dallas Mavericks got much nastier on Monday night, but a lot of it happened off the court.

Family members of some of the Nuggets stars were harassed in the crowd during Game 4 of the playoff series between the two and Carmelo Anthony's fiancée was eventually ejected from the arena.

The Nuggets lead the series 3-1 after Dallas won 119-117 on Monday night.

Video shows "La La" Vazquez, Anthony's fiancée, being escorted out of her courtside seat after some sort of incident with the women sitting behind her. In the video, her clothes are clearly wet as if a beverage was poured onto her.

Vazquez was sitting next to Kenyon Martin's mother, Lydia Moore, who was also apparently harassed during the game by Mavericks fans. A beverage was also apparently poured on Martin's brother during the game.

This comes after Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told Moore her son was a "thug" and a "punk" after Saturday night, when the Nuggets beat the Mavericks with a last second shot by Anthony.

Before the game on Monday, Martin told the media he planned to address the matter "face to face."

After Monday night's game, there is video of Martin delivering an obscenity laced tirade to Cuban.

Tuesday, Cuban wrote a blog entry titled "An Apology to Kenyon Martin's Mom." In it, Cuban wrote that he shouldn't have said anything. He added that this matter has gotten out of hand. To read Cuban's blog, visit http://blogmaverick.com.

Asked if the game was hostile, Nuggets Coach George Karl said afterwards, "I would probably use an uglier word than hostile. I don't think [the fans] were very classy."

Game 5 of the series is set for Wednesday night in Denver starting at 7 p.m.

Despite what your feelings are for him, he is still better when healthy. For one,
he can actually play defense and not just gimp around on Anthony like he does
now. Secondly, the Mavs have two scoring options right now with him playing on
two nub like ankles.

If you guys would have won with Birdman, the series would be 2-2 with a
healthy Howard.

Denver is going to come out really aggressive Wednesday night. If you consider all the trash they dealt with in Dallas I imagine they are fuming and ready to jump all over Dallas and end this series with a statement.

The nuggets are gonna win tonight Cuban is a punk himself.

I wrote this mile high salute for the Nuggets

Denver, Colorado
A mile high salute
John Elway brought the game
Jay cutler has no game
He is just crying away the shame
You say your better then Elway, shoot you must be tripin’
Because no one is better then the one wearing the number seven

Like Chauncy Billups returning to the 303
Or J.R. putting up those 3’s
Travis Henry be smoking those trees
LA better watch out because the Nuggets are on a roll
Just remember the bird is the word and he will block any shot you throw
Just ask CP3 and you’ll see nothing can stop us in the 303

I agree, BUT, I don't think the series with LA would go to 7... All they have to do is take ONE of the first 3 games in LA, which I think they can do, no problem... then hold serve at home, which they can do... that means a series over in 6 games IN Denver.

If denver wants to win in 6 they gotta block out every time on d. which is a problem for them they dont block out much. Bc lakers crash boards hard, if we aernt blocking out Gasol were screwed. Bc he control 1st 3 quarters then kobe would take over. If that happens we wont win, wed prob lose in 5.

They don't have to do it EVERY time, just step it up, because they've done it at home, they've done just about everything right at home.

They don't have to double Kobe, just like they didn't have to double Dirk... they have the defense to keep the rest of LA in check and let Kobe have his... as long as they don't give up 50 to Bryant, they'll be fine.

The Lakers have had lapses, in both their series... Utah wasn't good enough to take advantage, the Rockets have, and believe me, if they do it again in game 6, it'll be pushed to 7. The Nuggets have had three, and they weren't anywhere close to what the Lakers had... in two loses they've lost by a total of 4 points... playing bad basketball and they've had the defense to keep them in those games.

I'm not going to call anything, don't want to screw up the mojo or anything, but I think Denver has a GREAT shot at knocking off the Lakers (if they make it past Houston) in 6 games.

Well it will be interesting...

Dirk killed the Nugs, and while Pau doesn't have the long range Dirk has he is a lot
better in the post, and can still face up. If Denver can't slow down Pau then they
will lose, because they don't have anyone to stop Kobe. We know Kobe will get
his, it all comes down to how well Nene, Birdman, and K-Mart handle Pau, IMO.

Looks like we'll be playing the Lakers... In L.A, Lakers got to a hot start and forced a lot of turnovers and played defense. We can't play sloppy with the ball at all in the Staples Center... They are going to be tough, but can we live up to the challenge?

Chance to go 0-2 or to go 2-0 or to go 1-1... If we play sloppy we will go 0-2 since we do play the first two in L.A...

I don't know what to think... I hope we come out strong, I don't want to endure another 4-0 routing.

I think momentum still exists in the playoffs, and we're riding it very strongly right now. These Lakers are fakers when it comes to contending - their players know it. It starts at the top. A mediocre Houston crew was successful in dismantling the triangle in 3 out of 7 games because Phil Jackson is the NBA equivalent of Mike Shanahan.

We take 1, they take 2. We take 3 and 4, they take 5. We close it out in the Rockies.

It's strange that, of the four remaining teams, we have the most playoff experience. The understanding that Karl, Billups, Anthony, Martin, Nene, Carter, Smith, Carter, Andersen (etc!) share is pretty potent, as evidenced on the court. This team is determined. The Lakers have no idea what's going on.

Sorry....I just don't agree.

The Lakers are the darlings of the NBA and ALWAYS get the calls.

Kobe is the NBA darling.

Im not saying we can't win.

Im just saying the refs are going to be an obstacle the entire series. We WILL NOT get any of those nifty "no calls" like game 3 in Dallas, ESPECIALLY when were in L.A.

The NBA isn't exactly known for it's great fairness and objectivity. (See 1985 draft).


But hey...don't take my word for it.

www.denverstiffs.com is the place to read stuff about the Nuggets.

My favorite example:


1) They’re in myopic denial of the favoritism the Lakers receive from the NBA.

Lakers "fans" claim that their team is subject to the same rules and regulations as the other 29 NBA teams, but this simply isn't true. Here are the indisputable examples…

-Since the Lakers can’t be bothered to play on Saturdays, they never have to play a back-to-back at the end of week…typically the most grueling games on the schedule. Moreover, while most teams (especially in the Western Conference) have to go into hostile territory for Saturday games where it’s the only thing in town to do, the Lakers never have to play those games. If you think it doesn’t matter, in 2007-08 road teams were a combined 12-28 on Saturday night games that took place in Portland, Utah, Sacramento, San Antonio, Memphis and Minneapolis.

-The Lakers have historically been given favorable treatment from the referees in supremely important games. One of the most famous examples of this was Game Six of the 2002 Western Conference Finals against the Sacramento Kings. With the Lakers down three games to two, the NBA was in danger of the Lakers not making it to the NBA Finals, so the refs ensured that the Lakers shot 34 free throw attempts to the Kings’ 18. While Game Six of 2002 might be more famous, the most egregious example was Game Seven of the 2000 Western Conference Finals against the Portland Trailblazers. Many site the Blazers demise in that game to their 3-of-18 shooting in the fourth quarter (which admittedly, was a huge factor in the loss), and yet everyone fails to recognize that the 21 free throw attempt differential in favor of the Lakers didn’t exactly help Portland’s cause, either.

-Another example of a free ride from the refs came during Game Six of the 1988 NBA Finals against the Detroit Pistons. The Lakers were down three games to two, and down one point with 14 seconds to go. The Lakers fed the ball into Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for a hook shot, and Bill Laimbeer was called for a foul which, upon review in the replay, never happened. Don’t believe me? Watch the video.

-Shockingly, the dean of NBA referees (and USA Basketball wrecker) Stu Jackson admitted that the referees made an incorrect call this season that essentially gave a game to the Lakers when Derek Fisher pulled Monta Ellis down with 3.3 seconds left in the Warriors 123-119 loss to the Lakers in Oakland. Given that the Warriors missed the playoffs by just two games, I’m sure they were thrilled with the NBA’s diligence on this one.

-And of course, earlier this decade NBA Commissioner David Stern, when asked what teams would comprise his ideal NBA Finals, was quoted as saying “the Lakers vs. the Lakers.”

But no, there’s no favoritism towards the Lakers out there.

Beating the Lakers in the playoffs is like beating the Republicans in Presidential Elections that take place in Ohio or Florida. You have to knock them out by an overwhelming majority of points/votes because if it's at all close, the game will be rigged against you. So let's overcome the odds and beat these Lakers already. Go Nuggets!!

Fine by me. I'll take Chauncey over Kobe any day of the week. Billups can be schemed. Kobe cannot. There are two types of Kobe Bryant. The calm general, and the maniacal assassin. The general is a well rounded player, who utilizes his teammates. The assassin is either going to kill you or himself. Either way someone is going down. Neither one can really be schemed, you have to hope his teammates miss, or he does. Chauncey is still the best pg in the league right now. This will be the best western conference finals in years.

Come On Nuggets!! Let's do this!! :rockon:

Are you kidding me? Monuments will be built to the sheer amounts of irony displayed in the post.

The Nuggets are getting noticed and rightfully so.

Screw the "Kobe" factor.

Denver has a lot more star power with Melo, Chauncy, JR and Nene. And don't even forget "The Bird Man"

Nuggets are a marketing power house right now.

Screw the Lakers. And bring on LeBron.

Melo and Billups are the only stars. JR and Nene are both good players, but they aren't stars. Bird Man may be easily recognizable but I'd hardly call a 1 dimensional bench player a star.


Chauncey is still the best pg in the league right now. This will be the best western conference finals in years. Go Nuggets.

I understand everone homers it up a bit, but seriously?

I'd say Deron Williams is the best PG in the NBA.

I'm a Cavaliers fan. Based on how everyone's been playing, I might have Williams in my top 5. Billups has been breaking down everybody they put in front of him. He's getting everyone involved. He's taking over games, and knocking down clutch shots left and right. He hasn't been too bad on defense either. Having been forced to watch his entire career with the Pistons, I'm telling you he's playing his best basketball.

To be completely honest here. Seems like the best point guard lately, has been whoever plays the Lakers. Jackson has to find a way to stop penetration. If they play Billups the way they played Brooks, they are going to find themselves in a shootout they might not be able to win.

How many wide open dunks did you see Nene, Anderson, and Martin get because Kidd and Berea couldn't keep Billups out of the paint? I lost count after game 2. I think you overestimate the fact that guys like Sasha, and Farmar are streaky. Odom and Bynum have a tendency to disappear. Why do you think Kobe has been trying to take games over from the opening tip? He's worried about those guys. Denver can score with LA.

At the other end of the court. We know what we're going to get from Denver. Anderson is going to protect the painted area. Martin is going to match up one on one with the other teams BP. Melo is going to play good off the ball defense, and Billups is going to play physical up top. As a team, they rotate very well. I look at LA, and I'm perplexed. I think it comes back to Bynum. Gasol is stationary, but if Bynum would give it up on defense, they'd be way better. The Lakers sometimes work hard, close out, and rotate, but I think that they are missing the active big man to threaten guys in the paint.

If Denver thinks they can just run and outscore the Lakers there is no way they can win. The Lakers do have more firepower especially if they are getting open looks which is what usually happens when teams just try to outscore one another. Denver is a very good scoring team but Nene so far has disappeared on the road. So, how will Denver just be able to outscore LA without a low post presence to score consistently. Kmart, Birdman, and Nene have their moments but only Nene can provide the low post offense they need. He has to show up and score when in LA.

If Denver is able to play good hard nosed defense, rebound, and get out on the break then great we have the athletes to do so. The blueprint for a Nuggets' series victory lies in the one game they won vs. LA this year. They have to slow down their scoring. Anyone who thinks Denver can run and gun and outscore LA when LA has homecourt advantage is crazy. Those who believe that Denver can on run on LA as long as Denver plays defense and secures the defensive rebound are correct in their assessment of how Denver can take this series.

Bynum is the wild card. Gasol and Kobe will get their points. If Bynum is able to put up double digits consistently its going to be really tough to beat LA with homecourt.

Denver is more than capable of winning this series.

How many big men do the Lakers have that can run w/Nene and Anderson?

I don't see the Nuggets running sets to Nene in the post, they don't have to. The Lakers perimeter defense is going to force their bigs to move. Once that happens, the Nuggets can score w/anyone. They don't necessarily have to out run the Lakers, but I expect Jackson to use Gasol and Bynum to go right at their shot blockers in the paint. You make a good point about LA's ability to play fast, but the Nuggs match them athletically. I think they should get out and run more, but Phil is going to work the paint. If anything, they can put Martin and Anderson in foul trouble.

Tough loss, losing Nene at the end was killer, and that slow pass in by Carter goes without saying.

Nene fouling out, Denver missing 12 free throws and having Anthony freaking Carter inboud the ball in such a crucial point of the game all contributed to the loss.

It wasn't Koby's great play that won the game it was Anthony Carter's garbage play..... Koby was crying all game like it was game 7 somewhere. If he has any tank games, your done...

Seriously, FTs are one of the most basic fundamentals of basketball that are taught when you're like 5 years old. If you can't knock them down consistently and in crunch time when you have a chance to win on the road, that's not going to get you anywhere. You guys can cry and complain all you want but nothing is going to change the fact that we won the game.

Winning is winning, it don't matter how it's done.

You guys outta be happy, Chauncey was CLEARLY out of bounds when he hit that three. Yet if that was Kobe or any other Lakers player.. ha, this board would be going nuts about how the NBA's out to get them or something.

In the word's of one of Laker's greatest fans, "Why can't we all just, get along?" -(name that movie)

Seriously guys, back and fourth, back and fourth. Not achieving much, let's accept defeat and move on Nuggs fans. You must be kidding yourselves if you thought walking into LA would have been easy. Lakers fans are abnormally cocky, they have good reason to be. Accept that and move on. I for one am not going to play the "what if" scenario game... Grats Lakers, you won game 1. It's ON! :)

Hahahah.. I love how all Nuggets fans have are excuses... if we would have made this FT... or if the refs were fair... or we play the opposing team and David Stern... or our bench was just flat tonight... or even though we lost, we should have won if Vince McMahon wasn't going on ESPN laughing at our owner...

Seriously, FTs are one of the most basic fundamentals of basketball that are taught when you're like 5 years old.

Yea, lump all Nuggets fans together... maybe you should read what I have posted...

I wasn't making excuses, I was pointing out why the Nuggets lost... because of three facts... Nene fouled out, they missed 12 free throw's and Anthony Carter's horrible inbound pass... those aren't excuses, those are mistakes that should be fixed by the next game.

Lakers won, fair and square, in one of the most balanced officiated games I've EVER seen, especially when it comes to the Lakers in LA... There were only two calls which I disputed, the foul on Jones where Kobe made the basket, and Chauncey clearly being out of bounds on that three... they evened out and the officiating was straight down the middle.

I never made excuses for my team when we lost 3 games to the injury ridden Rockets. I acknowledged that Kobe struggled with Shane Battier and to a certain extent with Ron Artest. I constantly spoke about how much trouble we were having defending the pick n roll and how our bigs were playing small.

There's a difference from just stating your team got outworked, didn't play fundamentally sound, or simply lost the game fair an square, a big difference versus... oh yeah, hit those free throws and we woulda blown them out... they're lucky to have the game.. it had nothing to do with the fact that Nene has fouled out of two critical games now (this game and game 3 vs Dallas) or that Birdman doesn't play the same on the road as he does home or the fact that JR Smith decided to stay home tonight or how a midget like AC Carter had NO BUSINESS in bounding the ball.

Those are excuses.

So some Nugget fans thrilled to finally have a worthy product on the floor get excited about it?

The thought of actually PLAYING in the Finals doesn't have some people in the state of Colorado thrilled and hopeful?

Quiet fans are always there but fans none the less. It's always expected for more of them to be excited during winning times.

I never thought the Nuggets would blow the Lakers out, I KNEW this was going to be a close game, I know this is going to be a well fought series... and I have to be honest, if Denver can't take game 2 or 5, then I have a feeling they'll be out in seven... not that they couldn't win game seven, just they haven't been in one since 1994 and with it being in LA, I just think it would be too much to overcome... now if they can't hold serve at home, then it's a moot point.

A laker fan is in no position to state such matter.

I guffaw at such an insipid and imbecilic accusations.

Remember that season when the lakers did not make the playoffs? I believe it was the year they traded shaq.

Lakers did not sell out 1 game and had all time low record attendance. Then slowly but surely they got back into the winning streak.

And what comes out of the wood work?

Southern Californians! Also can be associated with Duck fans (never seen them around till they first made it to the cup)

Charger fans, watch some of their games prior to their success, you'll see less fans at those charger games than 8 year old little boys lined up to get Micheal Jackson's phone number.

Ever watched a clippers game? Nickle Back can sell more CDs than that team can sell tickets all season long. But that one time they did make it to the playoffs it was filled, along with Jack siting on his court side seat.

Now I can't speak for baseball since I don't watch the damn sport, but I can tell you the LA kings sell as many tickets as the Ducks did 10 years ago. About 10 per game.

Also JR was pathetic tonight... your purple and gold sissies were lucky .... Look for a lack luster Lake show Thursday....

Every successful team has a TON of people that jump on the wagon...

I went to SEVERAL Nuggets games in the late 90's and early 00's and the arena (McNichols and the Pepsi Center) were majorly empty.

When the Rockies got hot at the end of '07 Coors Field started filling up and the wagon jumping was a plenty.

The Broncos and Avalanche have always had major fan support in this city, can't say the same for the other two teams.

All I know is that I've supported all four of them since forever... Broncos since I was a year old, the Nuggets since the late 80's (oddly enough right when they started to suck, after English left, never saw him play), the Rox & Avs since day one.

Bandwagon fans have no right to call out any other team's fans... but tried and true fans have a right to call out a bandwagon fan when they spot them... and I'm not calling you one Spyder... I'm just saying.

It's as simple as this why the Nuggets lost last night...you shoot 65% Free throws you will lose to a team such as the Lakers. Just think if Denver had maybe sunk 2 or 3 more free throws they would have had a 6-7 pt lead instead of the four point lead at around the 3:00 minute mark. LA calls a TO, gets a basket from Kobe and they make their run.

Had Denver had more of a cushion the whole mindset is different.

You can't blame AC. Make no mistake about it he played but poorly. However, this game was lost in the first half when Denver was shooting below 60% from the line.

I still have faith Denver can win in LA. They are good enough to do so. This loss is going to really tick them off. I expect an even more passionate effort Thursday. I am not depressed yet. A win on Thursday and all is well. A loss and well, it's time to get really really nervous.

Just move the wrestling to the coliseum.

It is not large enough to hold all the fans and the "Titantron". Besides the contract the the WWE holds says PEPSI CENTER. Why should they be forced to take a smaller venue for the NUGGETS screw up.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As far is it being "Fake", the outcome if the matches may be "scripted", but some off the "bumps" that the wrestlers take are 100% real. All of your favorite action movies are scripted, so are plays, and TV shows. The type of event should have influence on weather or not it should have to be moved or canceled. The NBA has had problems with refs, and point shaving in the past should the be a factor on if the game should be played?

The attitude that kind of thinking shows is very narrow minded and selfish. If it where any other event would you feel this way? What it was a concert by your favorite band, and you had tickets that was in jepoardy of being canceled, or being moved to an smaller area would you be ok with it. Especally if the smaller size of the area would negitively effect it.

The fact remains that the Nuggets ownership signed LEGEAL contract and will not live up to it. If Vince wants to leagally he can force the Nuggets out of Pepsi Center. When an event signs a contract they have the sole say in who gets in and who does not. Basicly for next Monday Vince holds the lease on "The can". If he wants to he can prevent game 4 from happening on monday night at Pepsi Center.

If you all think it is ok to force the WWE out would you be willing to have your game moved to a different city? Or to the Coliseum? Of course you wouldn't. So why is it ok to force out other fans. I don't like basketball. I think it is a waste of time. But I have NEVER put it down on these boards. Or used derogatory slag for the players or fans. Please afford us the same respect. I have heard people call the fans and wrestlers "Red Necks". Can you imagine if someone where to use the N word to discribe NBA Players and fans.

Lets face it if it the Nuggets had any leg to stand on this controversy would have never came up. If it was a "slam dunk" as it where for the Nuggets that Vince had to move the event the announcement would have been made long before now. As Vince said it is a shame that Stan did not have the same faith that you have in his team. Or if he did have faith he does not have the right staff to run the booking of other events at Pepsi Center. This is going to cost the Nuggets Millions of dollars. To have the game there on Monday the will have to buy out the contract, prob have to pay a large penalty for not living up to there end of the deal. Plus the WWE will be less likley to book an event in Denver, which means that Pepsi will sit empty and an empty building does not make money. Also other events will see how Vince got treated and might be less likley to come here.

CoryWinget81
05-20-2009, 02:23 PM
Actually, Stan the Man can rip up the contract and throw it at him.

He still OWNS the Pepsi Center. If Vince McMahon did something stupid like interfere with the playoffs, I'd say fine, but try to put on WWE without any lights. ;)

CW you are WRONG. Contracts like that made VINCE the owner of the Pespi Center. If Stan "Ripped it up" that is breach of contract.

~~~~

At anyrate Vince was the better man in this rather then forcing the Nuggets out he CHOISE to move his event.


The Nuggets enmpt ownership ruined Memorial Day for ten of thousands of people. To be honest I hope the Nuggets get CRUSHED and are swept. This ownership does not deserve to win a World Title. I will never go to a Nuggets/Avs game or wear any of my Avs jerseys untill they are sold. In fact I am thinking of selling all my Avs jerseys and autographs.

Maybe if you sell your jerseys and pout some more, they will reschedule the western conference finals so you can watch your guys in speedos.

i think the nuggs lost the game more then the lakers won it

they came out hot but let the lakers back in..they missed way to many FT..billips was 1-4 to start in free throws, a man who only missed three FT in the first ten games of the pOs..there was several minimal contested layups missed

then i think the biggest mistake was setting jr for ac in the final minutes..ac provided no offense when we needed a scoring threat..then the inbound pass of putting the smallest guy inbounding over a 6-8 defender was big

Because of the morons that run your team THREE events had to be moved.

If they moved game 4 to LA you would be upset about it. Which I think they should that way the Lakers can sweep the Thuggets out of the play off on there home court.

You're just mad because you don't get to see sweaty men in underwear fondle each other :laugh:

Also, McMahon needs to shut his trap about who believes in what more than who. The Nuggets aren't able to script their season like ol Vince, otherwise this might have all been prevented :eek:

Well its unfortunate that it couldnt be a win win for everyone.

If you were Stan Kronke, what would you do? Id refund the WWE, Id make an apology, Id offer to greatly discount the rental of the pepsi center the next time around....but there is no way in hell I would let it effect my team that has played so hard to get to this point.

So hate the Nuggets all you want, because you hated them before all of this. At least now they are giving you something to cry about and it makes me very happy to see that.

If I where Kronke I would not have booked an event the interferes with my team. Once I was informed at the end of the season that there could be a problem I would not reconfirm the that like he did. Once my team made the finals I would tell the NBA that I could not have a game that monday do to a prior commentment.

as for a discount the next time. Would you return to a venue that did not honor a contract, and threw you out less then a week before you where to a have a live televised event?

As far an apology, he hasn't issued one. He does not care that this effect three events in three cities. No of that mattered. A signed contract did not matter to him. He does not honor his commitments.


To your comment earlier about "so you can watch your guys in speedos." Now you can watch your men in a girlie power blue shorts and tanktop try to touch each others balls and score on each other.

In the past 15 years the WWE has only had 3 outdoor events. Wrestlemania IX at Ceasers Palace, Summerslam 1992 at Wembley, and Wrestlemania 24. The last one was almost ruined by rain. With rain in the forecast it would have caused problems.

Also the since Invesco holds more people the would have had alot of empty seats and that would look bad on camera.

Bad inbound play + Anthony Carter inbounding = Turnover.

Yeah that was a horrible play, that is why we lost right there... We could have tied it up but AC made a horrible play and it cost us.

Nuggets had it but we just could not close it out... We need to rebound stronger(we did great at rebounding) Our D was excellent, we have to defend the 3 ball a lot better and not be stupid with fouling... WE need to work on free throws.

I guarantee at least 6 of them missed free throws if we made them would have mean't we won the game.

Game 2 Tomorrow, I hope we do better! Hope JR and Kenyon are alright! Play Renaldo instead of Kleiza... Carmelo did great last night!

For the record this screw up by the idiots the run the Nuggets cost WWE fans THREE events this weekend. Why do all of you have to jerks about this. Proir to Raw being canceld did I saw one negitve word about the Nuggets or there chances? My best friends eight year old son is crushes about this. What about him. This was the one chance for his Dad to take him to an event like this. Both my friend and his wife have to work nights so even though the WWE is returning in August they wont be able to go. Besides that event is a "lesser" event. Why should be punished for your teams screw up?
