Denver Nuggets Tweet of the Week: Chauncey Billups thinks Jamal Murray is "the truth"

New, comments

Jamal Murray had the best game of his young career on Monday night and it drew the attention of a former Nugget

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Detroit Pistons Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

If anybody had any doubts that Jamal Murray is going to be a star in this league and a staple of the Denver Nuggets franchise for years to come, hopefully Murray put a lot of those doubts to rest on Monday night by scoring 38 points in an extremely efficient manner while making important shots down the stretch in a close game. And if even that game did not quiet your doubts, then the Tweet of the Week might. This was Chauncey Billups' reply to a fan on Twitter that wanted to know his thoughts on Murray's performance on Monday:

What else does anybody need to finally admit that Murray is the real deal then confirmation from none other than "Mr. Big Shot" Billups himself. Billups will always be a beloved member of the Nuggets community, no matter how long it's been since he's donned a powder blue jersey, and it's great to see that he's still invested in his hometown team.

What makes this tweet even more amazing is that it prompted this response from Murray:

So, there you have it. Murray confirmed that Billups was right in confirming that Murray is the indeed the truth.
