Malone clinched his initial All-Star coaching nod Saturday night, when the Nuggets overcome the Minnesota Timberwolves 107-106. The coaching gigs were determined by which teams have the best records in each summit through Sunday, also Denver (37-15) has clinched a tie breaker within Golden State (also 37-15) having a better record against Western Conference opponents.
Denver celebrity Nikola Jokic can also be likely to the match, as one of the reserves. The All-Star Game is currently Feb. 17 at Charlotte.
“Clearly any moment it is possible to be a part of the allstar weekend, that’s an honour not just yourself but for the whole coaching staff and for your own organization,” Malone said. “this is exactly why we feel enormous pride that Nikola has been voted an allstar reserve this past year. Also our very first plus his time allstar since Carmelo Anthony. So we take pride in that.”
Malone will develop into the third Denver trainer to work an allstar Game: Larry Brown failed in 1977, and also George Karl failed in 2010.
If Denver had lost to Minnesota, Golden State’s Steve Kerr might have already been the allstar trainer for the 3rd time in five decades. He and his staff are certain to find a few days off instead of visiting Charlotte for the festivities — even though Warriors celebrities Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson will soon be heading there to play with in the match.
