Nuggets Kenneth Faried on offseason trade rumors: I actually like it

Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried has been the subject of numerous trade chatter over the course of his tenure in Denver and that banter reportedly continued this summer, when the 27-year-old was rumored to be involved in a three-way trade that would have routed him to Cleveland.

But Faried, whos been in Denver for his entire six-year career, has learned to take those rumors in stride. The gossip doesnt affect him like it once did.

I actually like it, Faried said of the consistent trade rumors to Nate Kreckman and Ryan Harris on Altitude 950. Honestly, before I used to hate it, because its like wow they want to trade me, but now Im thinking, hey, Im still being talked about, people still know my work in the NBA and thats respectful and humbling to me. Hey, I may not have had some of the best years recently to me and to myself, and Im like yo, I still can do this and I know I can and it took me last year I wasnt starting then I became a starter here and then not starting and started again at the end of everything and its like a lot. But hey, I take it with a grain of salt and just keep grinding and just focus on the main prize and thats our team winning and trying to make it to the playoffs and win a championship pretty much. So thats been my main goal and whatever I need to do Im just going to do on the court and if people talk about me in trades, (inaudible) that means Im still worthy and people still respect my game and still want me to be on some team somewhere.
