“Hey!!”, says Kenneth Faried, a power forward in his fourth year with the Denver Nuggets. “I should be an All-Star!”
Although the 6’8″ 26-year-old from Moorehead State University didn’t make the squad for the NBA All-Star game being played next week in Toronto, Canada, he did make the NBA All-Rookie First Team in 2012 after he was selected 22nd overall in the 2011 NBA draft.
He also made it onto a Mountain Dew advertisement in a corridor leading out of Toronto’s Union Station, where commuters could get an earful from the basketball player.
