Here's to Marcus :cheers:

Camby is playing amazing right now. Everyone is welcomed to jump in, and show your appreciation.

I'm most impressed with Cambys defense. He is a monster in the paint blocking shots and grabbing rebounds left and right. He has been the Nuggets MVP so far in the season, and I only hope Camby continues to have a career year. His offense has really picked up, and he has hit his jump shot more consistently than anyone on the team right now. Or at least it seems that way.

Right now Camby is leading the league in Rebounds and Blocked Shots.

I definitely appreciate the guy. Camby has always been a favorite of mine, and it is nice to see him finally relatively healthy and getting a chance to show everyone what he is capable of.

He's also a nice guy, to boot.

He was down here in the Springs for their annual preseason game at the World Arena (which they didnt' do this year :( ), and as he was signing things for people afterwards, and older lady asked if he could sign a card for her grandson who was home sick. He had already signed cards for her other grandkids (she was in her 70's). He looked at her, and asked the boys name. She told him. He took off one of his shoes, signed it with a get well wish to the boy, and handed it back to her.

He was really cool!

Great story and thanks for sharing it with everyone darth-horax. And it doesn't suprise me in the least since I saw that story TNT did. Basketball without Borders in Africa. Marcus Camby is an incredible human as well as a basketball player.

Basketball without Borders Africa brought together 100 players from more than 20 countries across the continent for basketball instruction and competition at Johannesburg, South Africa on September 7-12.

Houston Rockets center and Congo native Dikembe Mutombo led a contingent of current and former NBA players and team personnel acting as camp coaches. Joining Mutombo at the camp were Hornets forward Maciej Lampe, Knicks forward Jerome Williams, Clippers center Mamadou N'diaye, Nuggets center forward Marcus Camby, Pistons forward Darvin Ham and Suns forward Jim Jackson.

I agree that Carmelo is the Nuggets future, and young leader. However Cambys impact has been big this year, and every year he is our stopper on defense. Camby is a captain for a reason. However when it comes to rank even Camby says Carmelo is the leader of the Nuggets.

The best thing about Camby is that he is happy being the 3rd fiddle, however, he is always willing to step up and do what ever the Nuggets need him to do.

By 3rd fiddle, I'm talking about how pleased he was when the Nuggets acquired Kenyon.

Good point cpawfan.

Those attributes are what makes Camby such an important player for the Nuggets. Camby will defer scoring to a more pure scorer in order to help the team. Yet Camby will score the bucket when his team needs him. I just love his over all game this season. His offense is at another level so far. His rebounding and blocks have just been incredible. And the fact he's been our best player, but so humble about everything just shows Marcus is all about team.

Camby has been having a great season so far. I only hope that he stays out of injury and he continues to play at this level. I have heard that he is a good man, on and off the court. :cheers:

Do you think that has anything to do with the fact that Marcus wants to play for a winner (like most players should) and he knew he needed help down low due in part to his own injury problems? :angel:

I love Marcus' game. He is a monster on the boards. He is always near the ball. He may not get to every one, but he's close! I don't like seeing him shoot his jumpers however. I wish the team did not need him to shoot. He bricked a big shot against the Nets on the baseline at a crucial point, but there was nobody else to take the shot. I don't blame him for the loss, because he may be the only reason Denver has won at all, but this team needs a shooter.

CAMBY FOR DEFENSIVE MVP!!

Geat player. maybe this could be his breakout season?
Great player indeed.

white360 so far everything is pointing that way. If Camby can play through pain. Then I don't see why not. It was always his injuries in the past Major/Minor that kept him off the hardwood. Right now there is no doubt he is the Nuggets leader. Breakout season in a big way so far.
