Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. – who underwent back surgery last summer and missed his entire first professional season – is attending this year’s Rookie Transition Program.

Hopefully for him, he won’t have to repeat it next year.

Porter committed a faux pas by posting on Snapchat – about looking forward to lunch, no less! – a picture of NBA commissioner Adam Silver’s cellphone number:

Silver is popular with players, because he’s so approachable. He still works for the owners who sit opposite the players at the negotiating table. But Silver has bridged the gap, in part, by making players feel heard.

Occasionally, that can backfire.
