INC. I don’t know what to say about The Manimal that hasn’t already been said.  He’s gone from a franchise poster boy to street clothes in two seasons.  Short any explanation from Faried or Coach Malone, the best we can glean is from Kenneth’s season-capping tweet.  He promised to get to work and come back strong.  Considering his path to the NBA Kenneth is likely to make good on that promise.  It may not, however be with the Nuggets.  With a healthy Millsap, the improvement of Lyles and Lydon returning from knee surgery, it’s unclear what role Faried could serve with these Nuggets.  As a fan favorite, we hope for the best for the Manimal but his time in Denver is likely over. <p>Kenneth averaged 5.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and .6 assists in a career-low 14.4 minutes per game.</p>.
