But through the first week of practice here, he's being described by USA and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski as "one of our key guys" and is expected to make the team - in fact, no one was making a bigger impression than the Nuggets' forward.
I have no idea who would be surprised by this ... he's raised his game by quantum leaps since 04.
Don't they read box scores?
