Emmanuel Mudiay patiently answered questions at media day today, fielding questions regarding his role as the leader of the team and a whole slew of other topics.

Mudiay had an up-and-down rookie season, but enters his second season with a more firm understanding of what the NBA is like and what he'll need to do to help the Nuggets win more games this season.

Mudiay comments on his responsibility to speak up, how it's fun to be playing with more players that are close to his age, the Olympics, and how he is the Nuggets alpha player.
