Josh Kroenke went on Mile High Sports radio AM 1340 to talk about both the Denver Nuggets and the Colorado Avalanche.  Among the many things that he discussed with Eric Goodman and Zach Fogg, he mentioned his faith in head coach Michael Malone, who he picks to have a better record between the Nuggets and the Avalanche, and his thoughts on Ty Lawson texting James Harden when he was still with Denver.

Josh also talked about the early leadership from Jameer Nelson and the need for a solid locker room culture around young players like Emmanuel Mudiay and Jusuf Nurkic. He also talked about the decision to move on from Brian Shaw.  Perhaps the most enlightening moment was when he admitted that last year was a learning experience for everyone inside of the organization.

When asked, Kroenke also hinted that he was a better sharp-shooter than Mike Miller back when the two were college players, Miller at Florida and Kroenke at Missouri.
