I’ll be very interested to see how his career pans out. He’s proven to be a rock solid back up pg, but you have to wonder if someone will take a shot on him being a starter. Either way, he’s going to be in the NBA for a long time.

He's everything the Nuggets could want in a backup. Doesn't make costly mistakes. Elevates others. Is about the only nugget not to be injured in the last two seasons. He's such a good fit he's almost considered untradable for their team. They just acquired another decent backup pg and.traded him before he Denver. Sad he started the season slow, but he's been rock solid since all the injuries started. Hopefully he sees a better performance in this year's playoffs! Still my all time favorite cyclone in any sport, close to buying a nuggets jersey because of him.

Miss having such a clutch player. He had that attitude didn't matter how down we were, he'd find a way to win and usually did.

I will never understand why he fell so far in the draft. The NBA pays too much attention to intangibles and metrics and forgets about basketball.

anyone with a functioning brain should have known he was going to be a great nba player.
