HoopsHype Steve Traina rumors
It took only a few seconds for 25 years of memories to come flooding back for Dr. Steve Traina. From Andre Miller’s shoulder to Chris Andersen’s knees to Todd Lichti’s shattered foot, Traina remembered the numerous players he has helped recover from injury and resume their NBA career during his tenure as team doctor for the Denver Nuggets. “I’ve had a great run with these guys,” Traina said. “It’s a passion.” The Nuggets showed their appreciation for Traina’s excellent work and dedication since 1988, presenting him with a diamond-shaped glass plaque before Wednesday night’s game against the San Antonio Spurs. “His reputation throughout the league and the country is outstanding, even though he never promotes himself,” Nuggets athletic trainer Jim Gillen said. “He doesn’t have to self-promote. He gets satisfaction from seeing the players get back on the court and be successful.” NBA.com
