Our own Andrew Feinstein has a preview of the day ahead with key questions for the Nuggets on Media Day. In his post, he outlines some of the questions he is prepared to ask later today when the Denver Nuggets players, coaching staff, and front office face the press on the eve of training camp. All eyes will be on new head coach Michael Malone and rookie Emmanuel Mudiay.
... to head coach Michael Malone:
What will be emphasized in training camp - offense or defense?
How committed are you to playing fast?
Outside shooting seems to be the Nuggets biggest weakness, what can be done to overcome that with the roster as it's currently constructed?
Who do you project to be starting alongside Mudiay in the backcourt, Randy Foye or Wilson Chandler?
Other than the Sacramento Kings, what team are you most looking forward to playing against this season?
The shooting question will especailly be interesting as the team is involved in rumors to add sharp-shooter Mike Miller to the roster to provide shooting and a veteran presence in the locker room.
... to rookie Emmanuel Mudiay:
What aspect of your game did you work on the most this past summer?
Who, if any, of the veteran Nuggets players did you get a chance to connect with over the summer?
What does a successful rookie season look like to you?
What NBA player do you think you model your game after, if any?
Mudiay will field a lot of questions today and it will be interesting to see how he handles the spotlight in his first real exposure to the Denver media.
