Pickaxe Podcast: Jusuf Nurkic and Balkan Buddy Ball

New, comments

Adam and Jeff talk about "Balkan Buddy Ball" and the golden opportunity that the Nuggets are throwing away

In this week's episode, I am joined by the King of Thornton, Jeff Morton. We go over the Nuggets first preseason game and provide observations on several of the key players, especially Jusuf Nurkic. Then we turn our focus to the Nuggets coverage of training camp and preseason and ask whether they are missing out on big opportunities to grow the fanbase. Lastly, Jeff reflects on what things make him the most nostalgic.
