"When asked what he brings to the court, Brewer says his goal is to "wreak havoc, make things happen defensively. Offensively, get to the rim, offensive rebound. Do all the dirty work. Do all the things that people don't like to do." That's good news for a Denver team still trying to define itself defensively. Point guard Ty Lawson said Brewer displays the energy of five Nuggets rolled into one. "He's all over the place," Lawson said. "He's denying the ball, denying the point guard, getting rebounds, getting steals. He's an energy-type guy, so that's good for us for him to come off the bench and do that. Hopefully he can do that every game."
"Everybody knows that Brewer can be a lockdown the defender, and quite possibly be the Nuggets best perimeter defender and most versatile as well. He also may be one of the quickest players on the squad and is scary in the fast break. His long and athletic 6-foot-9 frame helps him both on defense and in the fast break. The only downside to Brewer’s game has been his errant jump shot, but through 11 games Brewer has been shooting .548 from the field..."
Granted, ARandolph (who we traded him to the Knicks for) has potential, but Brewer is thriving in a fast tempo system, 7.8 points in 11.8 minutes a game.
