In his #Nuggets debut, Aaron Gordon meshed seamlessly with his new teammates & showcased his wide-ranging skill set. In my latest film study for @Forbes/@ForbesSports, I break down Gordon's impressive debut & how adding him boosts Denver's title hopes. 👇https://t.co/M3bls72yR2

It's tough, but I've found that learning who some are as people has undercut my enjoyment of their work. Like I grew up LOVING Woody Allen films, and I'd still say he made some great ones. But Manhattan, for example, has aged (and contextualized) very, very poorly (& creepily). https://t.co/IzzmKJHjtp

@JoelRushNBA This might be to nuanced a convo for twitter, but how do you feel about good art made by bad people? I love some of iced Earths early albums, this is going to spoil it to some extent. not sure if I'll listen to it again but I also said that about other artists and it didnt stick.

Ha, sorry! Just running through clips I didn't get cut & posted last time (hard to crank them all out in real time). That said, the Houston game will start a tad early-ish in Denver, 6 pm Mountain, 8 Eastern, so heads up everyone. ;) https://t.co/MlBMveXuDs

Benefits of big-to-big passing Nkola Jokic gets Duncan Robinson switched onto him out of the PnR w/ Barton, Jimmy Butler is guarding Aaron Gordon, who gets the pass from Will and (more playmaking!) easily sends it right over Jimmy and Duncan for the Joker dunk and-1. #Nuggets https://t.co/eUAKKj55AD

A clear, concise example of Nikola Jokic's sky high bball IQ. He sees that he'll have both Barton & Morris open on the right wing if he drives & draws the defense left, just pulls all the defenders his way with his gravity, thinking steps ahead to the pass he delivers to Monte. https://t.co/gZ4U0Ykn9l

Michael Porter Jr. pulls up at the elbow for the contested jumper. With Denver's resident tough shot maker Jamal Murray out for the remainder of the season, MPJ might just give Nikola Jokic a run for his money as the #Nuggets' best remaining tough shot guy. Hitting a ton lately. https://t.co/B0w9JdXzwc

Nikola Jokic sends a great outlet pass up the court to Monte Morris, who puts back his own missed transition layup attempt. #Nuggets https://t.co/274kbgn65v

I don't think the #Nuggets should lean too heavily on Aaron Gordon post-ups, but Nikola Jokic does a good job of recognizing the mismatch he has down low on Jimmy Butler here, and it'll be a good play when those opportunities arise (as it long was for Millsap). https://t.co/G6cwKlbdqZ https://t.co/b3gu716NFI

This came off an offensive board, and Aaron Gordon didn't initiate the offense on this possession, but it's a good examle of the kind of shot creation the Nuggets will need more of from him with Jamal Murray out for the season, both in scoring (as here) & playmaking. https://t.co/0gxRUouxME

Aaron Gordon gets 2 offensive boards then drives baseline for the tough reverse layup, following the steal by P.J. Dozier #Nuggets https://t.co/y8sec7gPGT

Jon Schaffer, founding member of the band Iced Earth and an Indiana-based Oath Keeper, is at this very moment before a federal judge pleading guilty to two federal crimes for his involvement in the Jan. 6 uprising. This is the first public conviction in any Oath Keeper case

This means absolutely nothing. It just kinda cracked me up. But it's probably true that if you're in sports media, if you get your name trending on twitter it usually won't likely be for the best of reasons. ;) https://t.co/p9mzgcyIJO

NBA MVP voters should give their first place vote to Nikola Jokic because he deserves it, full stop. But they should also take pleasure in knowing that when Joker wins, it'll make a grown man cry.

Google street view find I stumbled across just now. #Yokohama, #Japan I'd say he looks like he just came off the set of the @beastieboys' Intergalactic video, but really it's the other way around in terms of who's copping whose style. ;) https://t.co/wn7aT7Ruk7

Yeah, I actually like Windhorst (apparently more than a lot of my followers at least! 😂), but I can't say my respect for him didn't slip a bit because of this one. Really, really dumb hill to die on, and blatantly dishonest about not wanting to take Jokic down a peg, which... https://t.co/VEBZIWfS8E

@JoelRushNBA They held him accountable to his idiocy and it's amazing. Can't believe how stupid he sounds through that entire debate.

How to Spot A Racist 101 When a person thinks the parents of a 13-year-old black child slaughtered by white police should be charged with his murder, rather than the actual murderer who killed him. I don't know who this checkmarked fool is, but we all know that's not justice. https://t.co/ZDFZDk4KL5

#AdamToledo's parents should be charged with his murder. Their lack of presence, parenting, discipline, and guidance got him killed.
