•  In The Denver Post: Nuggets' Gary Forbes takes a stab at being a journalist ... Check out the story here:

It was your typical post-practice media scrum. Guys and gals from print media, online, TV, radio. Oh, and Gary Forbes, the 6-foot-7 Nuggetsguard.

Forbes had wandered over from the Nuggets locker room, noticed the huddle around coach George Karl and figured he'd join in. So he pretended his water bottle was a microphone and stuck it in Karl's face.

Benjamin Hochman, one of our Nuggets writers, couldn't resist.

"What about Forbes?" he asked Karl. "What are you thoughts on Gary Forbes?"

Karl looked up, saw Forbes, and smiled. "He took two of the crappiest shots I've ever seen him take in the Philadelphia game," Karl said.

"Ever?" Forbes asked.

"Ever," Karl said. He sighed, and let out a wry smile. "I don't know. I thought about waiving him afterward."

"Those are some strong words. 'Ever'?" Forbes asked.

"Ever," Karl reiterated with a straight face.

"Coach, you've won a thousand games," Forbes said. "And I took the two crappiest shots ever?"

"Ever," Karl said, smiling, "and I think (the assistant coaches) would agree."
