The Axe is back! This week Zach Mikash is joined by the female writers of Denver Stiffs in Kayla Osby and Ashley Douglas. We break down the back to back triple doubles from Nikola Jokic and debate where he stands in the echelon of Denver Nuggets centers. After that we talk about Emmanuel Mudiay and whether or not we agree with his benching, then breakdown what we think his long term future with the Nuggets.
After the break we get into the three games from last week and specifically talk about the defensive liabilities that come with starting Jameer Nelson at point guard. Next we talk about whether or not the wins against the Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls are a sign of change or if we expect the Nuggets will continue to struggle with consistency. Finally, we wrap up the show talking about the Nuggets next eight games, seven of which are at home and whether or not that stretch will make or break the Nuggets season.
