Bruce Brown is no doubt happy to enter a new basketball chapter as a member of the Denver Nuggets. Other than that, he may seem to finally have taken that sigh of relief that he is no longer around the turmoiled Brooklyn Nets.
In Denver’s Monday media day, Brown noted that he loves being a Nugget now.
Following up that answer, Brown said that the noise and bright lights New York was too much for him. As a laid-back guy, he likes the fact that the Nuggets have that lack of national coverage and headlines.
“I’m a really lowkey, laid back guy,” Brown said. “NY (New York) was kinda crazy, I’m glad to be here.”
In the past two seasons of his career, Brown has observed all of the dramas that crippled within the Nets franchise. Last season, the club saw being battered by the controversial hesitancy of Kyrie Irving on COVID vaccine and the embattled departure of James Harden to go to the Philadelphia 76ers, which ended their campaign and championship hopes pounded to dust via a sweep by the eventual East champion Boston Celtics.
Brown inked a two-year, $13MM deal to carry his defensive ace identity to the Mile High City. Though the place isn’t that glamorous like Brooklyn or New York, he still owns a much clearer and better chance to win that first title, with now being at the side of reigning back-to-back MVP Nikola Jokic and the fully healed duo of Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr.
