As the Nuggets get to work in preparation for the NBA season, Kenneth Faried stubbornly refuses to accept a reserve role and defiantly insists if Denver can’t give him the minutes on the court he deserves, there are 29 other teams in the league where he can go play.
“I’ll just put it out there for everybody. I’m not a bench player. I’ve been saying that for the longest. I’m a starter,” Faried said Monday, when I asked him about his status with the Nuggets. “I love to hear the crowd (when introduced as), ‘Starting at power forward, No. 35, Kenneth Faried.’ Yes, that’s me. One hundred percent, that’s been my whole life. And I’m going to fight for a starting position. I’m just not going to lay down and let somebody take it. ”
“There are 29 other teams,” said Faried, whose contract with the Nuggets runs through 2019. “If this team doesn’t want, or respect me enough, to play me the minutes that I think I deserve to play, then I understand that. Hey, there’s 29 others. Maybe I’ll go somewhere else and do what I need to do there. But at the same token, I’m here in Denver, and I want to play Manimal basketball, no matter what, every time I step on that court.”
Nate Timmons: There’s definitely something brewing (about to boil over?) between Coach Malone & the players. Team seems like a mess.

Rick Noland: Larry Nance Jr on jersey number: I’m 24 right now. We’ll revisit it in the summer. With everything that just happened so fast, I wasn’t about to go to Cavs management and say, ‘Hey, what would you think about 22 now?’
Rick Noland: Larry Nance Jr. on dunk contest: Those are moments that I don’t know if any father and son have ever had. To me, that’s the coolest part of it all. I’m already having several pictures blown up to be framed.
