Nuggets’ Bol Bol excited to play at Staples Center against L.A. teams
Denver Nuggets rookie Bol Bol is excited to make his NBA debut, and one of the things that he anticipates the most next season is playing at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
In an interview with Bryan Kalbrosky of HoopsHype, Bol said that he’s never played at Staples Center. However, he’s really excited to actually suit up for the Nuggets in that building after seeing some live games in the famed LA arena.
“I’m really excited to play at Staples Center, too,” Bol said. “I know the environment there is crazy in Los Angeles. I’ve never played there but I’ve been to a few games there.”
Staples Center is the home of two of the best teams in the league right now. The newly revamped Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers are expected to be legitimate title contenders next season after adding a significant amount of star power and great supporting cast on their respective rosters.
The Lakers will be led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis, while the Clippers have Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
The Nuggets, nonetheless, are no pushovers either. They finished last season with the second-best record in the league, and they are expected to be really good again this year. A matchup with one of the LA teams is definitely something that fans would want to see.
A young, rising team like Denver going up against two star-studded teams? Bol would definitely want to be a part of that!
