It’s looking more and more like the Denver Nuggets made the right decision in drafting Emmanuel Mudiay.

Not only does Mudiay look poised to take the Denver Nuggets back to the upper tier of teams in the NBA,  he looks excited for the burden that awaits him.

Unhappy with the organization, city, fans, teammates, and God knows what else, Carmelo Anthony and Ty Lawson each forced their way out of Denver and off the Nuggets. It’s a situation smaller market teams often have to deal with, when the big fish wants out of a constricting pond.

Unlike Melo, who spent months planning his escape to New York, and Lawson, who burned every bridge possible on the way out, Emmanuel Mudiay is actually happy to be a Denver Nugget.

Mudiay shared the love on Twitter Tuesday afternoon, giving Nuggets’ fans yet another reason to celebrate their new point guard. The seventh overall pick has spent the summer saying all the right things, and impressing coaches, players, and fans with his work ethic and basketball abilities.

Mudiay has not played one minute of a regular season NBA game and he’s already been impressing the masses.

He played well in the 2015 Summer League to the tune of 12 points, five assists and three rebounds per game averages. He wowed spectators with his dazzling passes and great shot selection.

Now, even after the summer league is finished, Mudiay continues to impress and is making the Denver Nuggets front office look like geniuses.

During practice, Mudiay made a halfcourt shot while sitting on a chair. He posted this incredible feat to his Instagram account.

“I feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be. God landed me where I’m supposed to be.” Mudiay said after a Summer League game against the Kings. “I can only control what I can control, and that’s me being in Denver.”

It’s nice to want, and it’s even nicer to be wanted back.
