Just sat down with Tim Connelly. Talked free agency. I asked him if the Nuggets are eating at the big boy table now. “I think we’re entering the Golden Age of Nuggets basketball. We have something special brewing. And other players around the league know it”.
Malone says he doesn’t think there is a relationship between owner, front office exec and head coach in the NBA that is more aligned than he, Tim Connelly and Josh Kroenke. Says team “wouldn’t have skipped a beat” with Arturas Karnisovas, but didn’t want to see Connelly leave.
Malone on Connelly: "This past weekend with Tim talking to the Wizards, I didn’t want to see him leave, but I had complete confidence in Arturas Karnisovas. We wouldn’t have missed a beat. I am the head coach in Denver becasue of Tim Connelly…"
