Kenneth Faried

Kenneth Faried

You may know Kenneth by his nickname “Manimal” – coined by his Denver Nuggets teammates because his aggressive playing style combines man and animal. This physical play along with his accumulation of offensive rebounds earned him NBA’s Player of the Week Award in November 2012. Back in college at Morehead State University, Kenneth broke the post-1973 era Division I standing rebound record. He has played starting power forward for the Nuggets since spring of 2012. I don’t quite understand what a “Nugget” is, but I can get behind the Manimal nickname!
