Jamal Murray: I want current Jamal to be better than the Bubble

- by

Despite long, dark days of rehabs, Jamal Murray insists he knew he’d reach this level of impact. “No, no doubts,” he said. “I want current Jamal to be better than the Bubble. Once we get to that, then everyone will stop getting on my back about, ‘Am I here or not?’”

Jamal Murray doing a wonderful job of taking over these non-Jokic minutes by getting to his spots and posting up. His scoring has been the only reason this lead hasn’t evaporated. – 3:48 PM

Want to make Jamal Murray mad? Just ask him if he’s back. It’s a question he doesn’t know how to answer. Murray does know, though, that his internal expectations, post-ACL, haven’t dropped.
“I want current Jamal to be better than the Bubble,” he told me.

Michael Singer: Michael Malone said Bruce Brown didn’t practice yesterday, Jamal Murray was limited and Nikola Jokic went through most of practice yesterday. Said they’d have updated on their availability after warmups. -via Twitter @msinger / January 28, 2023
“I’m obviously here,” he said, laughing. “Everybody’s going to be comparing me to me, and what I’ve done … All I can do is keep progressing.” What he did in the Bubble, with multiple 50-point games and a level of confidence bordering on unhinged, would be an outlandish standard to achieve. And yet, Murray is unfazed. “I can’t control (the comparisons),” he said. “That wasn’t even the best. That’s just the best I’ve shown. I know that there are more levels to my game than that.” -via Denver Post / January 28, 2023
