Apparently this is the week of the Nuggets podcast here at Denver Stiffs!
The Pickaxe Podcast will have a new episode dropping on Friday and the Colorado Sports Guys have a very special edition of their podcast dropping later tonight but in the meantime, the Nuggets are on the national stage thanks to the stellar play of Nikola Jokic and Joffrey Lauvergne in the Rio Olympics. With articles pouring in from sites like The Ringer and a long overdue Nikola Jokic love-fest going on at r/nba, the national media is itching to talk about the Nuggets. Luckily, two great podcasts are here to help Nuggets fans get their fix.
The Limited Upside podcast is previewing all 30 NBA teams with a great format in which Mike Prada, the NBA editor for SBNation.com and Ben Epstein are joined by a writer from each of the team sites to preview the upcoming season. Last night they had me on their show and we spent an hour talking about Jokic's upside, the impact of Wilson Chandler, Emmanuel Mudiay's biggest area to improve, and much more.
Troy Tauscher is a writer for Bballbreakdown.com and is hosting a similar series in which he previews all 30 NBA teams. We had a great chat about the Jokic-Jusuf Nurkic pairing, Jamal Murray's potential and fit on the roster, Michael Malone's challenge in year 2, and much more.
