Nuggets turn to size this season with their Balkan big men

DENVER (AP) The thinking is big around the Denver Nuggets this season. As in, pairing towers Jusuf Nurkic and Nikola Jokic on the court more often. That's a counter move in a copycat league where teams are trying to be fast and free-shooting like the Golden State Warriors.

Kiszla: For Nuggets to dream big, Kenneth Faried must accept coming off bench

The Nuggets have had too much Manimal and not enough victories during the past three years. For a team desperately trying to find a place in Denver’s heart and earn a spot in the NBA playoffs, it’s obvious what the Nuggets must do, even if Kenneth Faried might not be crazy about the idea. The Nuggets need to start Nikola Jokic at power forward, give him as many minutes as he...

What's next? Will the Nuggets move their minimal 'Manimal'?

It feels like Kenneth Faried has been an NBA player for at least a dozen years. He’s only going into his sixth season, and just 26 years old.
