Denver Nuggets, East High School
The Denver Nuggets become the first team in the NBA to have multiple players voice support for LGBT athletes and fans as part of the You Can Play Project.
Forwards Kenneth Faried and Quincy Miller are joined by guard Randy Foye, and the student-athletes of Denver’s East High School, in promoting diversity and inclusion.
Faried was selected by the Nuggets in the 2011 NBA draft and named to the NBA’s All-Rookie Team. He has been a vocal supporter of equality, speaking up during the campaign for civil unions in Colorado.
Foye was selected by the Boston Celtics in the 2006 draft. The Villanova University alumnus was an all-American there and a Wooden Award finalist.
Miller was named Big 12 Freshman of the Year while playing at Baylor University. He was selected by the Nuggets in the 2012 Draft.
Faried, Foye and Miller appear in the video with the East High Angels as part of the Colorado State High School Activities Association's "You Can Play, Colorado!" initiative and Positive Leadership campaign. The initiative promotes inclusion and diversity in the state's high school locker rooms and all student activities.
