CSG What's Happening: 2016 Nuggets media day (Featuring Nikola Jokic and Danilo Gallinari)
Denver Nuggets media day is always a treat for those of us that get to attend. You get to interact with the players in a very casual setting before the pressures of the season press down upon them. The NBA season is a grind even if you are a team that doesn't make the playoffs. Six months of regular play can wear on a person, particularly on a team that doesn't make the playoffs.
That being said, it was fun to interact with the Nuggets players on Media Day. In particular Nikola Jokic who was his usual goofy self and displayed his much improved English as he spoke with us during the media day scrum. Additionally, Danilo Gallinari was his ever-quotable (on media day) self as he spoke about his relationship with the city of Denver. Gallo's role on this team as a veteran and mentor to the younger players (particularly the Europeans) will be an integral part of the young players development this year.
As always enjoy the video. There will be another CSG What's Happening coming to you next week!
