And now it's time for Nuggets Haiku

Written by

We had a little contest on Twitter last night. Denver Stiffs had given us a "Yellow Skyline" logo Nuggets jersey-shirt to give away, so we hosted a Haiku contest on Twitter during the teams home opener versus the Pistons.

We got some great stuff from people who hit us with poems and the hashtag #NugsHaiku. It wasn't easy to select a winner among the dozens of entries we received. People are just so gosh darn clever! The Champ, and several runners up, after the jump.

Read more

Our winner ....

nuggets will make run/ In the playoffs one and done/ there I said it son 

The use of the phrase "there I said it" put Clay's entry over the top. But we were sent many other equally clever, funny and creative Haiku:

Broncos are playing, so I dont give any thought, about basketball

Javale is a weird dude / He makes a lot of mistakes / but they say he's good

Brimming with promise / Young, quick, and constant tease / how long 'til they please

Manimal looks mean / but I'll bet he's super nice / when he's not playing

Birdman bid farewell/ Now he's just a tale we tell/ Fake tattoos still sell

: Deep three for Gallo The nuggets win, nuggets win

Miller and McGee / An odd pair indeed, although / lob city they breed

The Denver Nuggets/don't like to play good defense/But can score a lot

you know what I'm sayin'/you know what I'm sayin'/you know what I'm sayin'

If only Browman / were hot like Cavnar / it would not matter

Iggy and JaVale/ wearing new jerseys and shoes / I want one too

Strengths: scoring and speed / Weaknesses: defense indeed, / not to mention threes

since we resemble/the lakers in our yellow/lets hire phil jackson

Soon it be legal / to get yourself the real kind / and not fake you blind

Assist and big dunks/ Golden Nuggets on the run/ How the west was won!

birdman stared at kids/ Carmelo traded to Knicks/ Nuggets will still win!

Expectations high. Slow start looks ugly as sin. George Karl looks annoyed

Javale is a goof / like mahmoud abdul rauf / so raise the roof

legalized weed may, help the nuggets attract some, top shelf free agents

first win of the year, sixty three and three will be, the nuggets record
