In Nurkic’s first year in Denver alone, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated that the population increased 18,582 people, or roughly 2.8 percent. That rapid rise has contributed heavily to the traffic commuters face in the city. Hence, the bike. “It’s funny,” Malone said. “I remember years ago, (7-foot-6) Shawn Bradley had a custom bike, and somebody stole it. How many guys can ride Shawn Bradley’s bike. Who stole that bike? What are you going to do with it?”
Denver’s population in July 2014 was roughly 664,000 and rapidly growing by the month. Nurkic didn’t want to constantly deal with all those people on the road. So he decided to make a purchase to help him bypass them: a new bicycle. Nurkic went up to Boulder, and because he’s a 7-foot man who weighs approximately 275 pounds, had one specially ordered. He bought a black mountain bike. Ever since, he’s become part of the roughly 6.6 percent of Denver residents who sometimes get around downtown by bike.
Jusuf Nurkic was the latest player to express his frustration with certain issues revolving around the Bosnian national team, via a post in his Instagram profile. The Denver Nuggets center didn’t travel with his teammates to Sweden for the next game of the Eurobasket 2017 qualifiers, something that was seen in a negative light by some of his country’s media. Apart from answering back to the general criticism he receives, he also mentioned that his future in his country’s national team is not certain at all. “He was injured“, they say, ‘he doesn’t want to play, he has bogus injury, he’s no good…’ I came to play and that wasn’t good. I gave my best and that wasn’t good. Whatever I do, it isn’t good. Do I annoy you this much, really? Anyway, I’m going to stay with these guys till the bitter end, but after all these things you did to me, next time I will think twice next time about playing for national team or not, you bunch of liars! And one more thing: How and when I travel with the national team is not my decision, but the decision of the Federation and the coaching staff. And one more thing: If I wanted to be separated from the team, I wouldn’t bother to come here anyway!”
Coach Michael Malone went to the Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic pairing at the end of last season. What were your thoughts on it and do you think we could see it again next year? Wilson Chandler: “When they put Nurkic and Jokic in, just from a feel of it on the outside looking in, I felt like down the line maybe this year and going forward that’s a great possibility, that’s a great lineup. I think it’s a good strength for our team though, If you have a bigger team you can play those guys, but if you’re getting killed you can go smaller with Gallo at the four, throw me at the four, we can try and catch up that type of way but I think that’s a great strength we have. We can mix it up a lot.”
