Video: One reason Faried will be a fan favorite in Denver

2011 NBA Draft

NEWARK, NJ - JUNE 23: Kenneth Faried from Morehead State answers questions from the media after he was drafted #22 overall by the Denver Nuggets in the first round during the 2011 NBA Draft at the Prudential Center on June 23, 2011 in Newark, New Jersey.

Kenneth Faried is a guy all about hustle. He’s not making it to the NBA based on an advanced skill set, he was drafted because he is ferocious on the boards and works harder than you do.

Oh, and he can dunk.

What follows are a few highlights from his play at the Drew League this summer in Los Angeles, where Faried was able to destroy some lesser competition. It won’t be as easy in the NBA, but he is going to make some plays and the fans in Denver will love him. (video via I am a GM)
