New, comments

In this week's episode of the Pickaxe Podcast, Jordan White stops by to discuss Jokic's article at The Player's Tribune, interesting NBA players around the league, the city of Denver, and which teams "deserve" to move up in the draft.

In this week's episode of The Pickaxe Podcast, I am joined by Jordan White, a very talented writer who always brings a unique voice and perspective to his writing. He has covered the NBA for Hardwood Paroxysm, Dime Magazine, Vice Sports, Uproxx, and The Player's Tribune. Jordan recently worked on the Nikola Jokic project, helping Jokic create his article in The Player's Tribune and got to spend the day with Nikola and his brothers. Follow him on twitter and if you haven't already, check out Jokic's article below.
