  • Kiszla: Nuggets can’t afford mistakes with Jamal Murray

    be a big piece of this team for many,womens Quandre Diggs Jersey, many years.”
    Down the road from the Pepsi Center,womens Tavon Wilson Jersey, the Broncos have dillied and dallied for 18 months,womens Travis Swanson Jersey, trying to sneak into the playoffs with the marginally competent quarterback play of Trevor Siemian, rather than committing to the difficult task of finding out whether Paxton Lynch can be the team’s quarterback of the future.
    The Nuggets have a chance to be smarter than their NFL neighbors in Denver,Authentic Tahir Whitehead Jersey, and diligently work on developing the star potential within Murray. The theory: If you believe enough in a player to invest a truly valuable draft pick in him, the faith is wasted if you let him gather dust on the bench.
    ” Malone said.,womens Matt Prater Jersey,“Our young players have developed because we’ve given them a chance to play through their mistakes
    Denver has been making goo-goo eyes at Bledsoe for months. Stop it.
    the best argument for that long-rumored deal has always been more about eliminating the potential for discontent in the locker room than significantly upgrading talent on the roster.,I don’t want to hear one more word about the Nuggets trading Emmanuel Mudiay and Kenneth Faried for Bledsoe. Truth be told
    Shuffling furniture,womens Glover Quin Jersey, neither older than 21., by swapping your disgruntled chair and Ottoman for somebody’s crabby sofa,Authentic Mike Daniels Jersey, and it gained no more appeal in October, only invites unhappy living for all involved. Getting Bledsoe would have been a bad idea on the night of the NBA draft, when Malone dealt with the inevitable growing pains of Murray and Mudiay
    Everyone who loves basketball in Colorado, which is of far greater long-term importance than whether the Nuggets finish sixth, expects the Nuggets to win at least 45 games and make the playoffs for the first time since 2013. And the Western Conference seems saltier than Denver hoped, with Memphis, Utah, myself included, Portland and the Los Angeles Clippers looking as if they can give the Nuggets real competition for the final three spots in the playoff bracket. But it’s far more critical the team discovers how much Murray can grow this season, eighth or even 10th in the West.womens Nevin Lawson Jersey,
    “We can’t hide him,Authentic Quandre Diggs Jersey, or we’re doing him a disservice in the big picture,Authentic Tavon Wilson Jersey,” Malone said. He wants Murray to learn on the job,Authentic Travis Swanson Jersey,against all-star competition and was unfazed when his point guard struggled offensively early in the season.
    because Jamal Murray is a shooter. That was the least of my worries, all all-stars in their own right,womens Tahir Whitehead Jersey, Malone added. “It was: ‘Are you going to offensively push pace and be aggressive and get downhill? Defensively,Authentic Matt Prater Jersey, Kemba Walker and Kyle Lowry,Authentic Glover Quin Jersey,“I wasn’t worried about the shot not going in early on, are you going to take on the challenge of guarding John Wall,womens Clay Matthews Jersey,and not shy away from that?’ And he hasn’t. He’s not perfect. He gets beat sometimes. You know what? There are going to be nights this year when he continues to get his butt whupped. And we expect that. It’s only going to help him.”
    Bledsoe is a solid NBA player. But he’s a B-list star, at best. By almost any metric, Bledsoe has more in common with Detroit’s Reggie Jackson than truly elite point guards such as Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook or Damian Lillard.womens Mike Daniels Jersey,
    they have to push his learning curve and find out.,Will Murray ever move into the elite category? For the Nuggets to even dream of an NBA championship in the next five yearsAuthentic Clay Matthews Jersey,
    it’s basketball.”,“I don’t think there’s much of a learning curve. It’s just basketball,” said Murray, whose mental toughness is made of bulletproof titanium, not false bravado. “From high school to college to the NBAAuthentic Nevin Lawson Jersey,”
    In more than 400 NBA games, Bledsoe has averaged 13.1 points and 4.6 assists. In only his second NBA season, at age 20, it’s reasonable to believe Murray can match that production this season.
    Bledsoe wouldn’t get the Nuggets one step closer to a championship.
    Saying no to a trade for Bledsoe? That’s a no-brainer.
