Denver Nuggets’ roller coaster ride

The Denver Nuggets have had a few issues coming out of the All-Star break with first-round pick (point guard) Emmanuel Mudiay’s moved to third string. Mudiay is coming off a back injury suffered earlier this year and big man (forward) Nikola Jokic is playing lethargically, averaging only 5.3 points a game, a contrasting difference from his 16 points per game before the All-Star break. Jokic has assured the media and his teammates that he’s not tired and just needs to break his slump. Mudiay on the other hand will have to come off the bench and prove to coaches that he deserves the starting position. 

While the Nuggets are stumbling out of the All-Star break they managed to make some moves before the trade deadline picking up big man (center) Roy Hibbert from the Milwaukee Bucks for a second-round draft pick. Hibbert has been averaging 5.2 points a game with the Charlotte Hornets before he was shipped to Milwaukee. During the All-Star week Nuggets Rookie Jamal Murray won MVP of the Rising Stars Challenge when the Kentucky alumni went 9 of 14 from beyond the arch sealing his MVP status. 

In Denver Bronco sports, there’s been speculation that Trevor Siemian would be out much longer than expected following AC joint surgery. Siemian has already shed his sling and is expected to return to the Bronco’s facility to compete for the starting quarterback position this off-season. Additional speculation has placed the Denver Broncos among some of the top teams looking to bring Tony Romo to Denver. Romo was sidelined last year due to injury and his replacement left almost no doubt that the Dallas Cowboys would be sticking with the younger and more mobile Dak Prescott. Romo spent 13 years with the Cowboys but didn’t start until 2006 when he replaced Drew Bledsoe. While it’s unclear if Denver will actually make a move to bring the veteran quarterback to Bronco Country, John Elway has made it clear that the future of this team relies on youth at quarterback. 

The defensive-heavy Colorado Rapids look to win it all in 2017 with an emphasis on DEFENSE. Last season the Rapids begin to right the ship after a dismal 2015 season and did so in impressive fashion making their way all the way to the Western Conference Final where they lost a heartbreaker to the Seattle Sounders. This off-season the Rapids added veteran Alan Gordon and a promising midfielder Bismark Adjei Boateng in hopes of pushing past the Western Conference Final in 2017. 

In Major League Baseball, Rockies fans await the Colorado Rockies Opening Day on Friday, April 7 at Coors Field against the L.A. Dodgers.
