Michael Malone Rumors
Chris Dempsey: Nothing had less substance this season than this narrative. Malone was never in trouble. There was never a single piece of real reporting that said he was & he presided over a team that won 46 games – 6 more than last season & 13 more than 2 yrs ago. I was shocked this was asked.
Harrison Wind: Nuggets coach Michael Malone was asked today if he expects to be back next season: “There’s nothing in my heart that says I won’t be back. If that was even a discussion than I think we’ve got some things to talk about.”
Harrison Wind: Nuggets coach Michael Malone on Gary Harris: “Like Apollo Creed said, there’s no tomorrow. If I have to play Gary Harris 30 minutes tonight, I’ll play Gary Harris 30 minutes tonight.” Malone wouldn’t say if he’ll start or not, but I’d assume he again comes off the bench.
Harrison Wind: Nuggets coach Michael Malone on @Altitude950 says Gary Harris asked to come off the bench last night when he returned from an 11-game absence so Will Barton can continue to start at shooting guard.
Gina Mizell: Michael Malone says during his pregame availability that as long as training staff gives final thumbs up, Gary Harris WILL play tonight. Will come off the bench and play 16-22 minutes. #Nuggets
Chris Dempsey: My favorite quote of the day: #Nuggets coach Michael Malone on his team’s five-game win streak, which he acknowledged hasn’t always featured perfect play. “We’re playing get it done basketball,” Malone said. “We’re getting it done.”
