“Jordan Hamilton is our rookie for next year.” – Masai Ujiri
All signs point to Jordan Hamilton playing a much larger role for the Denver Nuggets in the 2012-13 season than he had through his rookie year. Quotes such as the one above from the front office and coaching staff, reports of rigorous training and a rock solid work ethic, the departure of Rudy Fernandez for Spain – it all adds up to more minutes and more responsibility for J-Ham in his sophomore season.
So with that in mind, last week I made this video of some of his rookie highlights, so that we might catch a few glimpses of the promising potential he hopefully can deliver on. (Full disclosure: It is a “highlights” reel, so it’s only the good plays. Perhaps someday I’ll make a “warts and all” video to focus on what he needs to improve on.)
