The towels were terrible.

Nuggets president Josh Kroenke recently told a story about accountability within the organization.

"Al Harrington held us accountable because he felt the towels in the locker room were too old," Kroenke said. "So we made sure we got new towels."

It was a lighthearted story, but Kroenke used it as an example to show the value of accountability — from top to bottom and bottom to top.

"It's things like that," Kroenke said, "where we're all communicating, making sure we're on the same page and making sure we're doing the best, as a group, to make the organization the best it can be."
