The Denver Nuggets Coach called school shootings an epidemic after one happened in his town
Denver Nuggets coach Michael Malone had a game Tuesday night and a team to focus on. But instead, during a pregame press conference, he took the time to address the shooting at STEM School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, where he lives with his family.
Before talking about the Nuggets’ Game 5 against the Portland Trail Blazers, Malone brought up the shooting, saying his prayers were with his community and thanking law enforcement for their quick response.
