Now we’re no scientists. We’re just lowly sports writers. But we went to state school. We’ve lifted a keg or two in our day, and if there’s one thing we’ve learned if that’s heavy objects, alpha machismo, and alcohol really don’t mix. Inevitably something always gets lifted up, and invariably someone always gets put down. That’s just physics, and Colorado Avalanche defenseman Kurtis MacDermid learned that lesson the hard way on Thursday when he hoisted the Stanley Cup above his head in triumphant (and most likely inebriated) celebration and got promptly folded like Gumby on a bender.

Nets lose Bruce Brown, Andre Drummond in free agency

All eyes are on where the Nets will send Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, but the team already has lost starters Andre Drummond and Bruce Brown in free agency. Drummond agreed late Thursday night to a two-year, $6.6 million contract with the Chicago Bulls, with the second year a player option. But the veteran center’s departure was a fait accompli when Durant asked for a trade and the Nets went into rebuilding mode. Brown’s departure, early Friday morning, stung more.

What else can the Denver Nuggets do?

Nearly every Friday for the last two and a half years, I’ve released a Film Friday column that has been Denver Nuggets’ related in some way or another. This week, we’re giving that column a little break because the NBA free agency period has officially kicked off, and there have been a flurry of moves around the league.

It's the start of a long holiday weekend and the weather will be pretty typical for this time of year in Colorado. That means each day will feature scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon.Mornings are typically dry and quiet with scattered clouds left over from storms on the previous day.
