CSG What's Happening: Nuggets finalize coaching staff

The Denver Nuggets announced that they have finalized their coaching staff hiring Chris Finch, Chuck Hayes, Stephan Graham and more. What will this mean for the Nuggets development of their young roster?

The Nuggets also announced that they will hold their training camp in Omaha, Nebraska. We go over what that will mean, why the Nuggets are doing it, and what that means for CSG Podcast/Video training camp coverage (Spoiler: I won't be able to go ... darn CSG budget restrictions!) but there will be coverage by the likes of Chris Dempsey from the Denver Post.

Also, I remind you of the Tim and Negah Connelly charity event coming up at Exdo Event center on Walnut Street. Well worth your time if you're in the area. It will be on September 21st at 6:30 pm. Bags of Fun is a wonderful charity.

CSG Video Podcast: Dan Issel talks about Coaches vs Cancer and Nuggets memories

Coaches vs. Cancer is a fantastic charity that helps people suffering from that horrible disease all over the country. The Denver Chapter has been going strong for a long time and this year's benefit featured such coaches as Doug Moe, Rodney Billups, George Karl, Walt Weiss, Eric Young and more.

Today, Legendary former Denver Nuggets coach Dan Issel stopped by to talk to me about Coaches vs. Cancer and his long time friendship with Denver chapter organizer Bill Ficke. Issel also talked about my favorite subject (1994 Nuggets) and his last shot as an NBA player in 1985.

Enjoy the Video podcast!

CSG What's Happening: Danilo Gallinari likes Denver

Wa-hey! Time for another CSG What's Happening!

This week we start with Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari saying in a press conference in Italy that he refused an opportunity to be traded at the deadline last season in order to stay in Denver. He has said over and over how much he loves the city, and for some reason we Americans are just now catching on to what he has been saying for months and months

Also, Matt Moore from spoke with Nuggets head coach Michael Malone about his time as Nuggets coach, briefly about his time in Sacramento and the need to balance his desire to win every game with the need to develop young talent on the team. Fascinating stuff from Matt Moore and Michael Malone.

Finally we wrap things up with Tim and Negah Connelly organizing their second annual ping pong charity event at Exdo Event Center in Denver to support a children's charity. This year's event will be for "Bags of Fun" a charity that supports children with severe illness and provides them with bags/backpacks to brighten their days as they deal with their tough road. I encourage everyone in Denver to attend if they can and help support a worthy cause on Wednesday, September 21st at 6:30 pm.

Thanks for watching!
