1990 – Happy 23rd birthday to Denver Nuggets guard/forward Jordan Hamilton (@J_Goin_HAM), who is entering his third NBA season. After playing two collegiate seasons with the Texas Longhorns, he was drafted 26th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Nuggets. In limited time the last two seasons, Hamilton had a 3-point percentage above .360 while also averaging at least 16 points per 36 minutes. He has a fantastic scoring ability, but needs to work on his defense and rebounding to get into more games in his third year in the league.
