LeBron James isn’t the only player returning to a team for which he formerly played. Earlier this summer, the Denver Nuggets completed a trade that brings Arron Afflalo back to the Mile High City. Today, the team released the video below to officially welcome Afflalo back to town, and it makes me wish the season started tomorrow. Seriously, watch this and tell me how mad you are that we have to wait two and a half months before we get to watch Afflalo and Nuggets step on the court:
Afflalo is the type of player who works hard and leads by example. He isn’t the flashiest player in the league and he’s not always going to make headlines, but I believe his leadership and commitment to leaving everything on the floor night in and night out will immediately make the Nuggets a better team and have a positive impact on the development of youngsters like Gary Harris.
There’s still a long way to go before the season starts and there’s no way to know if the Nuggets are done making moves this summer, but it’s starting to feel like the upcoming season could turn into something special.
Side note: I have to tip my cap to the team within the Nuggets’ organization that makes these videos. They do an outstanding job. Check out the Nuggets’ official YouTube channel for more great examples of their work.
