Aussie vs Aussie: Begley meets Bogut

Hey everyone,

It's been a crazy few months to say the least. Some days it's hard to believe my wildest dream has come true but here I am, playing in the NBA. We're a few games into the season and while it's been a difficult adjustment at times, I'm loving every minute of it. The fans have been fantastic in welcoming me to the city and my teammates have been great too, just a fantastic bunch of guys on our roster. Coach Karl has been very supportive so far, giving me some great opportunities and helping me to make the transition to the big time.

We're off to a hot start, 6-1, and even though it's early I'm thinking we could have a great run this year. We made a big move when we brought in Iggy and he's been great for us. It's such a luxury to have a teammate like that; catch him in stride or toss it up near the hoop, you just know he's going to finish. Ty's been outstanding too, leading us in scoring so far this season. I've seen a fair bit of time alongside him in the backcourt and I feel we're really starting to gel.

I've had some people asking me what my favourite moment in the NBA is so far. Man, too hard to pick! Stepping onto an NBA court for the first time was such an amazing experience, I'll never forget my first game or my first basket. The other night when I knocked down those four threes against the Jazz? That felt pretty good! Meeting my fellow Aussie, Andrew Bogut, and scoring 15 points in our win over the Warriors? That was cool too. So far, everything has been a blast.

I can tell you what the most challenging moment was though, without a doubt: guarding LeBron James. Coach Karl put me out there at power forward against the Heat the other night to counter their small ball lineup and I found myself trying to guard the reigning MVP. Now, I played some power forward and centre growing up, and I loved it - that's why you'll see me getting in there sometimes, getting after those boards and posting up a bit - but that was a long time ago and I was giving up a fair bit of size to LeBron. Definitely the toughest cover of my career, at any level. I gave it my all but a player like that, he's going to get the best of everyone at some point.

Yes it's true, I've signed on with the Jordan Brand. You may have seen Darren Rovell's Tweet about it and he's right; I was a HUGE Michael Jordan fan growing up. If you grew up in Australia in the 90s, chances are you loved MJ and the Bulls. It's an honour to be a part of the Jordan family, I'm flattered that they brought me into the fold. What do you think of the Jordan XVs I've been wearing the past couple of games? I might change it up a little as the season goes along.

Tomorrow we're off to Phoenix to face the Suns, be sure to catch the game! Thanks everyone for all the Tweets, the signs at the games and all the support you've shown for me so far. I'm proud to be a Nugget and I'm looking forward to having a great first season here in Denver. Stay tuned!
