As the confetti rained down on the Denver Nuggets’ championship parade, one thing stood out amidst the sea of jubilant fans and triumphant players – head coach Michael Malone’s audacious t-shirts. Yes, you read that right, not one but two shirts that have quickly become the talk of the town, symbolizing the Nuggets’ defiant spirit and their triumphant journey to their first-ever NBA title.
The first shirt, emblazoned with the phrase “put that in your pipe and smoke it” harks back to the Western Conference Finals when the Nuggets were up 2-0 against the Los Angeles Lakers. Malone, in a post-game press conference, criticized the media for their lopsided attention towards the Lakers, despite the Nuggets’ stellar performance. His words became an instant viral sensation, encapsulating the Nuggets’ determination to prove their doubters wrong.
But Malone didn’t stop there. During the championship parade, he was also seen holding a white shirt that read “B*tch I’ma Nugget.” This second shirt, just as bold and unapologetic as the first, further fueled the celebratory atmosphere and the fans’ admiration for their head coach.
The shirts were a hit among fans, with many taking to social media to express their approval and amusement. One fan tweeted, “Coach Malone in party mode with those epic shirts!” while another commented, “Great shirts for a Denver parade. There will be lots of that going on.” The sentiment was echoed across various social media platforms, with fans appreciating the boldness and the backstory of the shirts.
