  • Klee: As expected, Denver Nuggets go international route in NBA draft

    Updated: Thu, Jun 26, 2014

    DENVER — In broken English and an endearing accent, Jusuf Nurkic was the Bosnian prince of brevity after the Nuggets picked him in the NBA draft. "I come to NBA," he said simply. Please do. And please be a baller. Because if Nurkic, a 19-year-old center from a faraway land,...

    Updated: Tue, Jun 24, 2014

    DENVER — As a 20-something captain with the Colorado Rapids, Pablo Mastroeni had a saying he often shared with teammates. In soccer, he told them, there are two types of players: piano players and piano movers. A heady, relentless player, Mastroeni built a star's career on the...

  • KLEE: For Rapids coach Pablo Mastroeni, US-Portugal awakens World Cup ghosts

    Updated: Mon, Jun 23, 2014

    COMMERCE CITY — If there were ghosts in soccer, there are certain matches they would haunt. The cleated banshees of this one — United States 3, Portugal 2 — still tickle the tattooed biceps of Pablo Mastroeni, a dozen years after World Cup shock. "I get goose bumps just...

  • Klee: Is Colorado Springs the best idea for Rockies pitching prospects?

    Updated: Fri, Jun 20, 2014

  • Klee: Colorado Avalanche's future in able hands of Roy, Sakic

    Updated: Thu, Jun 19, 2014

    DENVER — The Avs of 2013-14 were talented enough to win a playoff series or two. But they weren't ready. They weren't mature enough to fend off the gritty Wild, much less the Kings or Blackhawks and their years and years of playoff moxie. Patrick Roy tried to tell us as much, but...

    Updated: Sun, Jun 15, 2014

    DENVER - His parents blew up the photo, made it more pronounced, so visitors are reminded of what this is truly all about it. That wasn't necessary, really. To the kid, the moment already was larger than life. Twenty years later it remains that way to Charlie Culberson: an enlarged...

    Updated: Wed, Jun 11, 2014

    DENVER — The last time I spoke to Adam Gase in a semiformal setting, the boat was rocking. "I think some guys were getting queasy," Gase said Wednesday, and that was before the Seahawks made the Broncos queasy. In the week leading into the New York/New Jersey Super Bowl, the...

  • Klee: Memo to Broncos star includes plea for bringing back Vonnie Football

    Updated: Thu, Jun 5, 2014

    CENTENNIAL — This was old-school Von Miller. This was Vonnie Football, the 20-something kid with thick glasses, quick with a one-liner, a living, breathing retweet. "I think we've got some loose screws in the locker room," the Broncos' resident enigma announced Wednesday. "It's a...
