Denver Nuggets Players - Ryan Bowen
Ryan Bowen was one of my favorite players and
was a long-time Denver fan favorite. How can you not love a guy that
survived in the NBA based on his unrelenting hussle? The Nuggets could
use a few more Ryan Bowens on the court and in the locker-room, and he
also understood his role on the court. He didn't complain about how
many minutes he gets - just played all out for every minute he got.
Case in point - look at the black eye he received from blows to the head
in the Minnesota and Golden State games back in 2001. In this picture
at the 2001 Open House, I was asking him what exactly Minnesota player
Gary Trent had just done to him the previous day when he knocked Ryan
to the ground during the game.
Also in this picture is Chris "Birdman" Anderson.
