If you’re looking for a Colorado team to hoist a championship trophy this year, the choices are clear. With the Rockies expected to be in the cellar, and the Broncos wandering the desert, it’s the Avalanche, Nuggets or bust. The Avalanche (13-8) stand third in the West heading into their outdoor game against the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday at Lake Tahoe. The Nuggets (15-13) are holding down the No. 8 slot in the Western Conference, with a trip to Cleveland on Friday coming up next. Both still have decent odds to win a title, although the Avalanche at +600 (bet $100 to win $600) have the best odds in the NHL, according to co.superbook.com . Only their Lake Tahoe opponent, the Golden Knights, can match the 6-to-1 odds. The Tampa Bay Lightning and Boston Bruins are both currently listed at +700. In this week’s edition of Pick 6, we needed to throw Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic into the mix as a potential MVP award winner. Will the oddsmakers hold being in Denver against him? Or … [Read more...] about Pick 6: Looking for championship odds? Here’s a look at where Colorado sports teams stand.

Ditcheat, Somerset, England (CNN) Imagine galloping 4.3 miles in a group of 40 horses, jumping 30 fences the size of small cars.

The Nuggets are going to get a coach fired who deserves a better fate. David, Denver Kiz : You gotta love Michael Malone, if for no other reason than the same frustration fans feel is plastered on his face after each inexplicable, unforgivable loss. Malone is a solid NBA coach. While apologists for an under-performing squad offer injuries as an excuse, it is this team’s lack of quality second-tier talent that is setting up Malone as a scapegoat. A year ago we all talked about the Nuggets having one of the deepest benches in the league. The offseason was a big failure. Denver chose not to go all in. Ken, native son Kiz : Am I the only one around here preaching urgency? While the Nuggets take a dilly-dally approach to upgrading their roster, we have reached the halfway point of the five-year, $148 million contract center Nikola Jokic signed in 2018. Would it be wrong to suggest the team’s window of championship opportunity might already be halfway closed? How … [Read more...] about Kickin’ It with Kiz: Do disappointing Nuggets pose danger to coach Michael Malone’s job security?
MIAMI — NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has heard all the reasons why the league should not have an All-Star Game in Atlanta next weekend. He has two reasons why the league should: the fans and the game’s economy. Silver, in an interview with The Associated Press, said the fact that about 100 million votes were cast by fans for All-Star starters shows that the people who follow the game globally wanted the league’s midseason showcase to be played. And the league, he said, didn’t want to disappoint them. “It’s the largest factor, the amount of engagement we get from our fans around All-Star,” Silver said. “Historically, in the modern digital age, we have roughly 100 million people vote for our All-Stars, and we came out about the same this year even with a shortened voting period.” Players have raised some questions about why the game is necessary and the risks involved in playing it during a pandemic. The league has said it will fly players into Atlanta privately, keep them in a … [Read more...] about Adam Silver lays out reasons for NBA All-Star Game
