Brian Shaw is resorting to desperate measures in order to get through to his Nuggets

It’s pretty clear that Denver Nuggets head coach has had a hard time getting through to his players this season. The struggling team is 19-31, it has lost 11 of 12, and Shaw has openly admitted that he thinks his players are playing to lose.

As a result, Shaw is falling back on old, well-worn tactics to get through to the players he’s charged with leading. We’re just going to leave this aside from the Boston Herald’s Steve Bulpett right here:

He said he’s been trying everything to get his players motivated through a series of injuries and the trading of starting center Timofey Mozgov for draft picks (sound familiar?).

Shaw even admitted to rapping a pregame personnel report. Seriously.

Rapping. Rap-rap-rapping.

You’ll recall that Shaw has some experience in the genre

… but if the Nuggets’ current woes are any indication, this certainly wasn’t a mic drop moment.
