Just when the NBA junkies started to lose their marbles, Summer League is back to bring some basketball excitement into their lives.
For the Denver Nuggets—one of the Associations' youngest teams—this Summer League is important for many young players, four specifically.
2011-12 rookies Kenneth Faried, Julyan Stone and Jordan Hamilton all missed out on Summer League last year, due to the start of the season being delayed by the lockout.
While Faried broke into the lineup and broke out a bit last year, Hamilton and Stone have a ton to prove—this is their time to shine.
Likewise, the newest Nugget, Evan Fournier—who was drafted by Denver 20th overall this year—will get his first crack at NBA-level players the next few weeks.
And likely for Nuggets fans, today's game should be a good one against Golden State.
