Michael Malone Rumors
Harrison Wind: Malone on Jokic: “It’s kind of like when I was fortunate enough to coach a guy like LeBron, Chris Paul, Steph Curry, you recognize greatness… we feel that we have the most dynamic, best facilitator, best young playmaker in the NBA.”
Gina Mizell: #Nuggets coach Michael Malone on Giannis Antetokounmpo: “He’s great in the open floor, he lives in the paint, he gets to where he wants to go. I think the next step for him is becoming a consistent 3-point shooter. If that ever happens, you can’t guard the guy. He’ll be unguardable.”
Gina Mizell: #Nuggets coach Michael Malone on tonight’s game in Phoenix: “Bottom line is this: We’ve got 22 home wins. We’ve only won seven road games the whole year. Seven. We can’t overlook anybody. We can’t look at anybody as a sub-par team. We have to come out with the right mindset.”
Gina Mizell: Michael Malone says two-way call-up Monte Morris will see time tonight, since Devin Harris will not join the #Nuggets until tomorrow at the earliest. “What better way (to get NBA experience than) go up against Chris Paul.” Rejoice, @monserud!
Gina Mizell: More Michael Malone on newly acquired #Nuggets backup PG Devin Harris: “He brings a quickness and a pace that we haven’t really had in that position. He’s a blur. He can get to anywhere he wants on the court.”
Gina Mizell: #Nuggets coach Michael Malone on Mudiay’s fresh start with Knicks: “It’s just a chance to just go there and play and play with confidence and play his game…I just hope that he continues to improve, keep on working, maintain a great attitude and have a chance to impact a team.”
