Gordon Takes Responsibility for Embarrassing Incident
In a surprising turn of events, Denver Nuggets player Aaron Gordon took full responsibility for his recent injury in a dog-related incident. Despite feeling a bit embarrassed, Gordon openly discussed the incident, stating that he had consumed a little too much eggnog during the season. While roughhousing with his beloved four-legged companion, his dog became excited and bit his hand.
Gordon admitted to “messing around” with his dog and learning a valuable lesson in the process. This unexpected mishap resulted in an injury that left the Nuggets without one of their key players.
Support from Teammates and Coach
Despite Gordon’s unfortunate accident, his teammates and coach expressed their unwavering support. Nuggets head coach Mike Malone emphasized their commitment to standing by Gordon during this time. He urged the team to reach out to him, ensuring that he never feels isolated.
In Gordon’s absence, the Nuggets won their first game but suffered a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. This defeat marked the largest margin of defeat at home for Denver since 2019, highlighting the impact of Gordon’s absence on the team.
Gordon’s Busy Schedule and Untrained Rottweiler
Gordon’s hectic schedule has prevented him from training his 4-year-old Rottweiler as thoroughly as he would like. The responsibility of caring for the dog falls on his family. Despite the incident, Gordon described his dog as a good boy and expressed his deep attachment to the animal.
Nuggets Aim to Defend NBA Championship
As the Denver Nuggets strive to defend their first NBA championship, they currently hold the third spot in the standings with a record of 23-11. Gordon’s injury poses a challenge for the team, but they remain determined to overcome this setback and continue their pursuit of success.
