It wasn’t an accident that every member of the…

“1-2-3….six weeks!” Remember that controversy? It was back on Feb. 28, 2015, when, at that time, the Denver Nuggets were coached by Brian Shaw and in dark and desperate times. So dark that they decided to break their huddle, heading into the fourth quarter against a division opponent nonetheless, with a chant that was essentially counting down the weeks until...
