Denver Nuggets Tweet of the Week: Jusuf Nurkic

The Tweet of the Week is from Jusuf Nurkic, who uses a well-known quote to inform Nuggets fans that although the journey may be difficult, the hard work will pay off in the end.

The Tweet of the Week is a new weekly post in which one tweet from a Denver Nuggets player or staff member will be highlighted every Tuesday. The tweet will be picked either for its humor, inspiration or simply for being a good representation of what's going on with the Nuggets that week.

Jusuf Nurkic, in the Tweet of the Week, gives us an inspiring quote as well as reason to believe that our favorite Bosnian center will be back better than ever.

Nurkic could be referring to a couple of different challenges in this tweet. The most likely scenario is that he's talking about the process of rehabbing the knee he had surgery on in late May. The original timetable was 3-4 months, but it looks like he will be out longer than what was first expected. However, based on this tweet, it appears that Nurkic knows that even though the process may be long and grueling, the results when he does take the court again will be well worth the rehab experience.

Nurkic could also be referring to the overall process the Nuggets are going through. With a new coaching staff and many young players on the roster, the journey to becoming a successful team that can compete for championships will be a long one. Nurkic could be reminding us that there will be some inevitable challenges along the way, but the hard work will come to fruition eventually.

You also have to credit his hashtag game. I think we are all looking forward to when we can see #BosnianBeast23 tear it up on the court once again.
