Denver Nuggets media day is very fun to cover simply based on one thing. It's casual. Whereas other local sports teams are extremely regimented in their access to the teams, the Nuggets have fostered an almost family like atmosphere at Pepsi Center and this is reflected in how casual and friendly most of the players were.
This includes Nikola Jokic and Danilo Gallinari, who both seemed to relish the casual and fun atmosphere at Pepsi Center. Jokic, who is entering his second season seemed much more comfortable this time around. Playing around with a basketball as the media day interview session commenced. He will be an enormous part of what the Nuggets are attempting to do.
Gallo had some interesting quotes on being in Denver. This is his 6th season with the team and has developed a bond with the organization that has been clear. Saying in the video below that he's had the opportunity to be traded multiple times but has made clear to the organization he would like to stay in Denver. Also, Gallo gave his thoughts on mentoring young players and his role this upcoming season (first reported by our own Gordon Gross).
