Hello and welcome to our first installment of our Denver Sports Weekly Wrap-up. Here we will discuss the state of our favorite Colorado teams. We will take a look back at what happened in the last week and also look forward to what is going on next week.
The Week that Was:
The Nuggets continued the miserable Brian Shaw era with some more, well, misery. The Nuggets managed to lose to four Eastern Conference opponents who are under .500. Yup even the Eastern Conference is too difficult for these Nuggets to handle.
This means the Nuggets have lost 12 of the last 13. Naturally everyone is remaining calm.
The Denver Nuggets hired George Karl to be their head coach when I was 15 years old. Brought in midseason to replace the struggling Jeff Bzdelik, Karl led his new team to an astounding 32-8 record the rest of the way and got them back to the playoffs, where the Nuggets were then eliminated in the first round. At the time, all of us were ecstatic that our Nuggets even made it that far and we were convinced that brighter days were ahead. Little did we know that this was the beginning of a pattern that would become all too familiar to Denver fans: excellence and excitement in the regular season, mediocrity and frustration in the postseason.
