DENVER, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Denver Nuggets are preparing for Game 1 against the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals at Ball Arena Thursday night.
Ahead of Thursday's game, KRDO NewsChannel 13 Sports Director Rob Namnoum got to speak with some of the players and what this journey means to them.
Many young athletes dream of playing in the NBA and making it to the NBA Finals. For Palmer High graduate Reggie Jackson - that dream became a reality.
Jackson was traded during the season from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Denver Nuggets. Now, he has a shot at playing for an NBA Championship.
We asked Jackson if he ever thought this would be his basketball fate. Jackson said he's thankful and is blessed for this opportunity.
