When I was a kid growing up in Colorado, Denver was home to one of the greatest scoring tandems in NBA history. Alex English and Kiki Vandeweghe lit up the scoreboard every game, and if I remember correctly they even finished the season ranked #1 and #2 in scoring one year.
Good times, that until recently were long forgotten.
But a couple of years ago a really young American girl had her U.S. Open match featured on TV and her name had a very familiar ring to it. Coco Vandeweghe.
Sure enough, her uncle turned out to be Kiki and I instantly became a fan. Now, about two years later, she’s being touted by some as one of the top two up-and-coming American women.
McHale and Vandeweghe, numbers 1 and 2 – or vice versa. Former Nuggets fan or not, if you’re an American that has a nice ring to it.
