Denver Mayor Mike Johnston, in a spirited interaction with the public on Reddit, humorously entertained the idea of banning Minnesota Timberwolves player Anthony Edwards from Denver as the Nuggets face challenges in the NBA playoffs. This suggestion arose during a broader Q&A session addressing city issues and lighter topics like sports.

The Nuggets are currently down in their series against the Timberwolves, having lost the first two games. During the session, one user, tapping into local sports frustrations, proposed banning Edwards to boost the Nuggets’ chances. Edwards, known for his strong performance, notably scored 27 points in a recent game, securing a significant win for the Timberwolves.

Responding to the playful suggestion, Mayor Johnston remarked, “I will seriously look into this option,” accompanied by a smiley face. He further shared his confidence in the Nuggets’ resilience, drawing parallels with past playoff comebacks, notably against the Utah Jazz and the Seattle SuperSonics.

Despite the humor in his response, Johnston expressed genuine optimism about the Nuggets’ ability to recover in the series. He underscored the team’s unity and toughness, hoping for a pivotal win in Game 3 to counter playful taunts from the Minneapolis mayor. The Nuggets, reigning NBA champions, face a crucial upcoming game that could determine their advancement in the playoffs.
