Denver Nuggets small forward Michael Porter Jr. thought that head coach Michael Malone did a great job of bringing competitiveness during the 2022-23 season.
(via Denver Nuggets):
“I think one thing that I really respect about Coach Malone is just that he’s consistent in how he is. Like he hasn’t coached us any different, tried to motivate us any different than he has all season. Coach Malone is very competitive. Even game 82, I think we played against Utah, I’m pretty sure, but he was just as — I think we lost that game. He was just as upset about losing that game as he would a game right now. So he’s very consistent in his approach and the way he coaches us individually and as a team. Like I can respect that, and I think that’s one thing that I see from him.”
