Nuggets on the verge of imploding?

It's probably too late to wonder if athletes should be tweeting on the heels of playoff losses, especially this morning in Denver. After the Nuggets lost Sunday at Utah, guard J.R. Smith (@JR_Swish) posted on Twitter: "You play selfish you lose selfish that's all I'm saying about the game!" ... But Smith, perhaps more than any other Denver player, is known for jacking up bad shots. Smith did not make himself available to the media Monday at the Pepsi Center. Asked about Smith's tweet, Nuggets interim coach Adrian Dantley appeared uncomfortable. "What do you want me to say? That he shouldn't have made that comment? I don't know. He shouldn't have made that comment," Dantley said. (The Denver Post) Comment

"We'll dominate our division, off of bringing Donovan McNabb in here, a guy who's dominated the division in the past. So that's just an educated guess. That's an educated guess, and I stand behind. I'll stand behind that. I'll fight and claw to try to make that happen." (The Washington Post) Comment
