Video: Nuggets’ Mike Malone hilariously reacts to Blazers coach Terry Stotts’ preseason game outfit
Portland Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts and the rest of his coaching staff went full retro with their OOTD in their preseason game against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday. Nuggets head coach Mike Malone was asked to comment on the Blazers’ coaching staff’s fashion last night.
It’s safe to say that the Denver coach wasn’t a big fan, as Stotts’ peeping chest hair apparently distracted him throughout the game.
Watch the hilarious courtside interview below:
“… I keep on looking down and I’m seeing Terry Stotts’ chest hair hanging out, and that’s not a good look for anybody.”

This definitely wasn’t the mood when the two coaches faced off in a grueling 7-game series in the 2019 Western Conference Semi-Finals.
Obviously, it’s all just fun and games between the two at this point. It’s preseason anyway. Stotts apparently already had this set up and had asked the broadcast to anticipate a little surprise he had for them.
The Nuggets edged the Blazers in their preseason showdown, 105-94.
Denver finally saw its red-shirt rookie Michael Porter Jr. return to the court after missing all of last season due to a lingering back issue. The 21-year old prospect looked confident out there in his first official basketball game in over 500 days. He scored nine points and grabbed three boards in 16 minutes.
Mario Hezonja top-scored for Portland with 12 points, while Skal Labissiere, Anfernee Simons, and Zach Collins all scored 10 points apiece. Stotts will likely use the rest of the preseason to give more run to those guys.
The Blazers lost a lot of key pieces from their Western Conference Finals run last year. Portland will look look to make some, if not, all of them a significant of part of their rotation this season.
