I have to say that you and Aaron Afflalo were the only two constants this year. For being younger players you guys showed not only heart and passion, but you both played smart, no-nonsense basketball. On a team lacking in all those things, I admire you. I don't mean to rip on your teammates, I know that they're all good guys and good basketball players, but you showed a lot more poise than guys who have been in the league a lot longer.
I'm excited to see what you can bring next year. I'm excited because you'll no longer be the rookie. I'm excited because you'll get to play more minutes and give Billups more rest so that he's not worn out in the playoffs. I'm excited you'll get a chance to get in guy's ears and make sure that they're playing ball the right way. I hope that Denver has the foresight to retain you for many years, because there is no way that you won't be a star if you continue to work hard and play smart basketball.
A game hasn't gone by where I haven't screamed at my TV to get you in the game. Hopefully everyone will be watching their film this summer and realize that you are the future of this team. Keep doing all the little things that are necessary to get better, work on the jumper to keep defenders honest, and we'll get after them again next year.
