“I don’t know about you, but this whole Nene thing has fired me up.” Those are the comments of CBS4′s Vic Lombardi in his latest Vic’s Signature segment.
According to the Denver Post, Nene has decided to opt out of the final year of his contract.
Benjamin Hochman with the Denver Post joined CBS4′s Gary Miller on Sunday for Southwest Airlines All Access to talk about the Denver Nuggets.
Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl about a month ago was hoping to play the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs. Of course that never happened. Now Karl thinks the Mavs are going to win it all.
Nene says he’s thinking about free agency and says he feels somewhat underappreciated in Denver. In his latest Vic’s Signature segment, Vic Lombardi says the Nuggets really can’t afford to lose him at this point.
The Denver Nuggets are going against the grain as they both storm and limp into the NBA playoffs.
As the final seconds ticked off, George Karl broke into a sly grin sitting on the bench, clearly pleased by another impressive performance from his remade team.
Nene led Denver with 25 points and tied a season high with 14 rebounds. Kenyon Martin had 11 points before fouling out with 10.6 seconds remaining. The Nuggets are three games behind Oklahoma City for first place in the division.
Arron Afflalo shook off a sore ankle to score 19 points, including a 3-pointer with 11.4 seconds to play, and the Denver Nuggets held off the Utah Jazz 103-101 Thursday night.
Nene had 22 points and 10 rebounds, Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups scored 20 points each and the Denver Nuggets beat the Portland Trail Blazers 109-90 on Wednesday night.
