Kenneth Faried Shining For Team USA

During tryouts for team USA, there was some chatter that Nuggets starting power forward wouldn’t make the team. Now, he is starting for the team, and has made it past cuts. He is officially apart of the team, and he is enjoying his time with the team.

Here is a quick statement from Faried.

“Again, I’m just out here trying to prove everybody wrong. And again, I have to do it at another level, and that’s the USA level. Hopefully, after this run is over with, we come home with the gold, people will say, ‘Oh, OK, we apologize,’ and show me some respect. If not, until then, I’m gonna have to keep proving people wrong.”

Faried clearly hasn’t been happy with what people have had to say about him, and he has done more than silence the doubters. He is averaging 9 points per game and and 6 rebounds. Clearly Faried is doing some things right for Team USA, and he is looking like a major asset for USA going forward.
