January 1st, 2010
The Denver Nuggets have officially removed themselves from the NBA upper echelon.  Period.   I’m sure there are those who will justify their recent lackluster performances by citing the absence of Chauncey Billups from their lineup.

Watching the replay of the Olympiacos-Entente Orleanaise Euroleague game, I couldn't help but notice the undeniable impact of one Linas Kleiza.

As the third quarter of Tuesday night's game against the Golden State Warriors began, Nuggets fans had to be holding their collective breath.
