This has been one wild ride so far for the Denver Nuggets and almost a “Home Alone” moment happened between guard Evan Fournier and head coach Brian Shaw. Apparently, Fournier and other teammates was spending some time at Shaw’s off-season home in Oakland before their game against the Golden State Warriors. As Shaw was about to leave for the team’s hotel in San Francisco, he went to do a double-check on his home and found Fournier sleeping: “I locked up everything, and everything seemed in order before I was going to walk out,” Shaw told Yahoo Sports. “I went on the deck to make sure there weren’t any bottles or plates laying around. I saw a leg and a hat on one of the chaise lounges outside. I went over and he was knocked out. “I woke him up and told him, ‘The bus left over an hour ago.’ The crazy thing is had I not done that sweep he would have been locked out on my back patio and his cell phone wouldn’t have any service or any juice.” Had Shaw not discovered Fournier, he would have been locked outside with the coach’s two watchdogs looming nearby. Shaw said “something crazy” could have happened. Fournier, 21, called it a “funny story,” but there wouldn’t have been much laughter if Shaw hadn’t found the Frenchman. We could have had our first “DNP – Slept At Coaches House”. *** Shaw image courtesy of Getty Images
