Mike Malone said the Nuggets will "run with purpose [and] use the altitude to [their] advantage" this season.
Denver's personnel is well suited to a fast pace, ranking third in the league with 98.7 possessions per game this season. Kenneth Faried averaged only 28.7 minutes and should benefit from a larger and more stable role under Malone, though some uncertainty remains about his future in Denver -- ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz reported a few months ago that Faried "isn't well liked [in the organization] ... He thinks he's 'the guy' and other [players] take exception to his contract." Faried will earn just under $50 million over the next four years and coach Malone already seems to be rallying behind him, saying, "[Faried] brings it every night. There's not many guys like that."
