The Nuggets’ “Rain­bow Sky­line” jer­seys of old are a work of art.

There is no top­ping them. They are pure uni­form per­fec­tion. Any move the Nuggets make to hon­or them should be cel­e­brat­ed.

That being said…

Nuggets’ 2020 City Edition jerseys — D+

What in the world are the Nuggets doing with the third and final edi­tion of their “City Edi­tion” jer­seys?

The first mod­el — white, with the clas­sic rain­bow sky­line — was a mod­ern take on an old tale wor­thy of praise.

The “black rain­bow” ver­sion the Nuggets unveiled in 2019 was also an admirable effort. The kids love black, after all. And you got­ta give the kids what they want.

But … “Flatirons red?”

We chal­lenge you to open a 120-pack of Cray­ola Crayons and find that col­or in the box.

Actu­al­ly, we’ll save you the time. It’s not in there. The col­or does not exist. You made it up, and the Flatirons aren’t even red.

The Nuggets’ blue was just sit­ting there, wait­ing to be used. It’s the pre­ferred pri­ma­ry col­or of the old Rain­bow Sky­line threads (at least in the Grad­ing the Week offices).

Don’t make this com­pli­cat­ed, Nuggets. Go with what works.

Tim Connelly — C+

Once again, Nuggets gen­er­al man­ag­er Tim Con­nel­ly dis­played his mas­tery of the NBA draft Wednes­day night.

Two days lat­er, how­ev­er, he and the Nuggets could only watch as vet­er­an for­ward Jera­mi Grant and big man Mason Plum­lee report­ed­ly left for free-agent deals with Detroit — a ter­ri­ble blow to Denver’s front court depth.

On draft night, Con­nel­ly fol­lowed the same for­mu­la as the pre­vi­ous two years with the selec­tions of Michael Porter Jr. (2018) and Bol Bol (2019), grab­bing a once-high­ly regard­ed prospect who fell in the draft.

This time around, it was RJ Hamp­ton, a 6‑foot‑5 com­bo guard who was con­sid­ered a top-five nation­al recruit as recent­ly as last year. To get him a year lat­er at No. 24 amid league-wide pan­ic over Hampton’s ceil­ing is a steal, and not a bad haul when paired with the selec­tion of high-ener­gy Ari­zona cen­ter Zeke Nna­ji at No. 22.

But, boy, do Grant and Plumlee’s depar­tures hurt in the short term.

No Rocky Mountain Showdown — C-

Let’s get this straight.

Colorado’s game against Ari­zona State was can­celed because the Sun Dev­ils had a COVID-19 out­break.  Col­orado State’s game against UNLV was can­celed because the Rebels had a COVID-19 out­break. Nei­ther of them had a replace­ment oppo­nent lined up for this week­end.

And we’re not play­ing a pop-up Rocky Moun­tain Show­down?!?!

Look, the staff at the Grad­ing the Week offices get it. The rea­son­ing was all very, uh, rea­son­able.

The Pac-12 has strin­gent test­ing stan­dards — pro­to­cols that the Col­orado State foot­ball team cur­rent­ly does not adhere to. There’s no way the Rams could’ve met those stan­dards in a mat­ter of days. And putting togeth­er a col­lege foot­ball game on a few days’ notice is a Her­culean task.

Still, if ever there was a time to move moun­tains, it would be in ser­vice of sav­ing the Rocky Moun­tain Show­down.

The Pac-12 need­ed just two days to put togeth­er a UCLA-Cal Sun­day morn­ing meet­ing in the Rose Bowl. Sure­ly a bus ride from Fort Collins to Boul­der wouldn’t have too hard to pull off.

Alas, it’s just anoth­er rea­son to shake our col­lec­tive fists at the sky in 2020.
