signing mean for the Nuggets

canada goose outlet uk Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla answered your sports questions in a Lunch Special on Monday. Here are the highlights: canada goose outlet uk

canada goose outlet store toronto Mark, let get into it. With LeBron James heading to the Lakers, what does this mean for the Nuggets hopes of not only making the playoffs next season, but making some NOISE in the playoffs? canada goose outlet store toronto

canada goose outlet store quebec Kiszla: LeBron James went to Los Angeles. He was always going canada goose outlet new york city to Los Angeles. He met with Magic Johnson at his home the instant free agency opened. He did due diligence, having his representatives listen to the best pitch from Philadelphia prior to signing with the Lakers. And no matter how much Earl Boykins wished it to be true, LeBron James was not canada goose outlet sale going to play in Denver. So where does that leave the Nuggets. They expect to not only make the playoffs, but be among the top four teams in the West. Free agency, however, did Denver no favors. King James will make the Lakers a playoff team with one stroke of his pen later this week. While many league pundits thought Paul George return to the Thunder meant James might be having second thoughts about the Lakers, I would speculate (and speculate only) it meant that James had second thoughts about playing alongside George. How does the West shape up on July 2? Current power rankings, as optimistically as I can make for the Nuggets: 1) Golden State; 1A) Houston; 3) Oklahoma City, 4) Lakers, 5) Utah and 6) Nuggets. canada goose outlet store quebec

canada goose outlet sale Kiz, any other free agents out there who you see in the picture for the Nuggs? canada goose outlet sale

canada goose outlet in usa Kiszla: The picture for the Nuggets isn pretty. They committed $12 million plus per year to retain Will Barton. And I glad they did. But Denver is severely into luxury tax hell. And that not place to be if you not a legitimate contender for the championship. The Nuggets wanted everyone to know they were pursuing a with LeBron James. That cool. But it diverted the attention from the short term mess Denver has made with the salary cap, in no small part because Tim Connelly and the gang overspent for Paul Millsap at this time last year. The team has to look at moving Kenneth Faried and his $13.7 million contract. The team has looked at moving Faried forever. It time to stop messing around and get it done. canada goose outlet in usa

canada goose outlet boston Do you think the Nuggets gaslighted the fans with talk of LeBron? Fully knowing they had no chance but appearing to make an effort? canada goose outlet boston

canada goose vest outlet Kiszla: Gaslight is not a word I gonna use. I don think the Nuggets were trying to mislead their fans. But all the hullabaloo about the started with a radio station owned by the Kroenke family. Hey, everybody has a job to do. It was cheerleading. Wishful thinking. Call it what you like. But I hope, going forward, some more fans now realize there is a difference between an independent news source and the spin put out by a media outlet owned by a pro sports franchise. While I hope (and beg) everyone to subscribe to The Denver Post, we not your only source for reliable and real news in this market. There are my friends at The Athletic https://www.canadagoose-jackets-online.com , BSN and several very good folks canada goose jacket outlet at 104.3. If you prefer spin, you know where to go. To each his own. canada goose vest outlet

If Jon Gray has a head will he ever recover from this demotion?

canada goose parka outlet uk Kiszla: Jon Gray got demoted to the minor leagues. And when it happened, my first thought was: Was took so long? I did use the cent head line with Gray. And I own it. But I take no pleasure in seeing him fail. He a good man, with good stuff, undermined with issues of poor focus and insecurity on the mound. He has worked and worked hard on his mental canada goose outlet in usa approach. So I going to wish him the best and think that he can be a pitcher that stronger between the ears when he returns to the Rockies. Naming him the ace was a mistake. It was a mistake Rockies management should have realized, because the folks over on Blake Street were more aware of his confidence issues than I am. canada goose parka outlet uk

Nolan Arenado is frustrated and I don blame him. What percent chance would you give the Rox of resigning him long term?

canada goose outlet trillium parka black Kiszla: Nolan Arenado aired his frustration last week, as the Rockies swooned in June. But know what canada goose outlet black friday was the most important aspect of his words? It wasn canada goose outlet store the frustration with losing. It was the face that Arenado, more so than even the highly competitive guys that wear a major league uniform, is in the game to win. To play in October. He felt that way last week. And he felt that way a year ago. Arenado comments did not change the probability of him staying with the Rockies long term. Team management has had to know for many, many moons that if they aren competitive when Arenado contract expires, he moving on. That why they spent big on the bullpen. That why they extended the contract of Charlie Blackmon. They trying to win, because winning is probably the only thing that can keep Arenado in Colorado. So far this season it not working out so hot. canada goose outlet trillium parka black

What has surprised you most this World Cup?

canada goose outlet woodbury Kiszla: My first surprise is I have checked ESPN soccer site so often that it now thinks I Portuguese and I have to get it translated into English. I telling you the truth. I thinking there got to be a simple fix for this issue and somebody tech savvy out there will do a solid for this knucklehead and help me out. On the pitch, I think you got to say Russia is the surprise of the tourney. That obvious. Home team in the quarterfinals. Hey, if Russia can do it, there got to be hope the USMNT can do the same when the World Cup is played in our backyard in 2026. canada goose outlet woodbury

canada goose outlet new york If you the Rockies, who are you trading at the deadline? I think DJ LeMahieu and Carlos Gonzalez for whatever you can get, and then play the kids. canada goose outlet new york

Kiszla: I be tempted to sell now and play the kids. But the canada goose outlet shop vibe from general manager Jeff Bridich is he wants to give the Rockies another two canada goose outlet parka weeks to show signs they can compete for first place in the National League West. And that cool official canada goose outlet by me. Go down fighting. Nothing wrong with that. Kudos. The fact you bring Carlos Gonzalez up as trade bait, however, is interesting. After CarGo found no takers for his services in the offseason, and came back to the Rockies, if they could flip him canada goose outlet jackets as a rental player for a contender and get something of worth in return, I would think that would have to be considered a feather in Bridich cap.

Do you think Chad Kelly will be just kidding. I canada goose outlet uk sale know you love those questions. OK, which Broncos logo and uniform is better: the old orange or the current orange? The Broncos are orange. And what I call the D logo is the best. There cannot be too much orange in this state. In fact, and Colorado State fans have heard me say it umpteen times, the Rams should make their uniform colors predominantly orange. you think the Rockies should be buyers or sellers at the deadline?

canada goose outlet miami Kiszla: The time to sell is near. Very canada goose outlet near. But you don have to be in any hurry to sell. So why not give it another two weeks. Not saying things will look any better in the standings for the Rockies. It doesn hurt to wait, though. And BTW: I predicted the Rockies would win 92 games this season. My bad. See what I get for being Mr. Sunshine? canada goose outlet miami

canada goose outlet online store review The curious case of Luke Heimlich, college baseball best pitcher who didn get drafted because he pleaded guilty when he was 15 years old to molesting his niece, who was 6 at the time, but now insists now he’s innocent and only pled guilty to «avoid the pain of a trial.» Does he deserve a second chance, a la Michael Vick? canada goose outlet online store review

canada goose shop uk Kiszla: I am not close enough to this story to spout my opinion on such a delicate subject. That not dodging the issue. It an admission that when I don canada goose black friday sale have insight, I not going pretend to act like I do. It a troubling story, no doubt. And if anybody wants to read all the details, seek out the recent longread on Heimlich in Sports Illustrated. It was written, if memory serves, by Scott Price. And Mr. canada goose shop uk
