Denver Nuggets plan to get nastyPosted by Inside Hoops
Forget 57 regular-season wins for the Nuggets. That’s not going to happen. But here is the real goal for the local NBA team:
No more wimpy basketball.
The Nuggets have a new way to play.
“Smashmouth basketball,” new Denver coach Brian Shaw said.
I asked Shaw to define his terms. What qualifies as smashmouth basketball?
“Smashmouth means that you are literally going to get your mouth smashed if you’re going against us for a rebound or a loose ball,” Shaw said. “We want to have a nasty disposition, both offensively and defensively.”
