Denver Nuggets Rumors
While appearing on Kevin Hart’s “Cold As Balls” show, Isaiah Thomas was asked about his former teammate, Lonzo Ball. While his answer is short, he didn’t hesitate to praise Ball’s game and attitude as well: “Lonzo has a bright future and the dope thing about him is that he’s a humble kid,” Thomas said.
Still, I’m not sure that how Thomas apparently feels about himself is reasonable. While the NBA guard was talking to comedian Kevin Hart during an interview this past week, Thomas revealed his top five point guards playing in the NBA today. Surprisingly (or perhaps not) Thomas listed himself as the best PG in the league. According to Thomas, the list includes Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard.
Some sleuthing around and it became clear. Spencer Dinwiddie is part of a Harvard program for athletes that has previously included Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. According to Boston.com, “Crossover Into Business,” is a semester-long program at Harvard Business School taught by professor Anita Elberse. The program is designed to help pro athletes better prepare themselves for “business activities during and after their active sports careers.” In this year’s class, there’s Dinwiddie, the Celtics guard Kyrie Irving, Pistons center Zaza Pachulia, and Nuggets forward Paul Millsap.
Harrison Wind: Suns say Devin Booker will be out approximately six weeks after surgery to repair an injury to the fifth metacarpophalangeal joint in his right hand. If that timetable holds up, he’ll barely miss the Nuggets’ home opener vs Phoenix on Oct. 20.
