Nuggets Forward Darrell Arthur Says Their Team Is a Contender: “Right Up There With Golden State”
Somebody over at NBA headquarters needs to have Nuggets forward Darrell Arthur pee in a cup, because the dude is definitely tripping.
On Tuesday the Denver Nuggets held a little pep rally to unveil their new uniforms. During that rally, Darrell Arthur was asked how he thinks the Nuggets will do this season.
This is what he had to say:

Scuse me? Right up there with the Warriors? The Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs aren’t even right up there with the Warriors.
Obviously, nobody expected Arthur to be like, “Oh, well, the Western Conference is pretty loaded, so I really doubt we’ll make the playoffs or even improve much on our 40-42 record.”
But right up there with the Warriors? That’s laying it on a bit thick. No Nuggets fan over the age of 10 could possibly believe that to be true.
Twitter certainly thought it was hilarious:
