It wasn’t until speaking with former President Barack Obama that players found a direction. Nuggets point guard Monte Morris, the team’s union representative, recalled the tension. At a meeting hastily convened on the first night of the work stoppage, Morris listened intently to Paul. “He was the one who said, ‘We gotta get our (expletive) up and vote,’” Morris told The Denver Post. “He threw the numbers out of the percentage of guys who hadn’t done it. It was eye-opening. I think everyone took it serious and said, ‘Yeah, we can’t be selfish.’”
What might terrify one team has become the source for the most gut and grits for Denver. “We believe,” Monte Morris said. “We’ve been here before. Ain’t no pressure on us. The pressure is on the Lakers to get the job done right now. We’ve been here before so we just have to come in and do what we do. We have to play loose, have fun with it and live with the results. But there is no quit in us. We’re high in spirits.”
And if he happens to go all Scottie Pippen — Grant’s 26-point night in Game 3, saw him drain two treys and head to the free throw line 12 times — along the way, it’s a bonus. Over the Nuggets’ nine postseason victories, the 26-year-old forward’s poured in at least 10 points during six of them. “Jerami, he’s been great for us, and we ask a lot from him,” teammate Monte Morris said. “He starts guarding LeBron. We know how (tough) LeBron is. He’s exerting so much energy on defense, you know, it was good to see him get going on offense. It gave us a great boost and it was much-needed.”
