Denver Nuggets Rumors
What’s your relationship like with the athletes then? Steve Hess: They freaking hate me [laughs]. When we we have a specific task at hand, we’re taking care of that. I’m spending more time with my players than I do with my wife and my kids and they’re a part of my family. Am I receptive to certain things? Absolutely. I feel like I have an amazing relationship with my athletes.
Steve Hess: They’re rocking in at 18. They’re kids. There’s only one man child that came in at 18 that took off his shirt and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re a beast.’ That’s Amar’e Stoudemire. A lot of it is maturity. As your body matures, you put on more muscle. If your nutrition is keyed in and if your supplementation is keyed in… To go back for a second, that’s why I love MET-Rx. They’ve been around 25 years. They listen to the things we talk about and they create products, which are usable and amazing. They’re used to supplement your nutrition.
Thinking back to your time with the Nuggets, if you could go back in time, what would you have done differently or have changed? Ty Lawson: I probably should have let the agent handle the situation more than me speaking out loud. That is probably what I would want to take back from it. Everything happens for a reason, I believe. Everything that happened last season is going to make me a stronger, better player.
