Locked On Nuggets

The Locked On Nuggets podcast is a daily NBA podcast covering the Denver Nuggets. Previous guests include Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler, Nuggets rookie Malik Beasley, CBS Sports’ Matt Moore, and much more.

In this episode, I recap a fun and exciting night for Denver Nuggets fans and discuss why I think Paul Millsap is the perfect fit on this roster. I also share what I think his value will be on the offensive end and in the locker room and where I think he will help guys like Gary Harris and Jamal Murray rise to a whole new level of play. Analysis includes some specific X’s and O’s about how his screening on off-ball action is so perfectly utilized in the dribble handoff offense that the Nuggets run through Nikola Jokic.

I also discuss the contract and how it fits into the team’s bigger picture with their young core and then focus on a few notes from around the team including an interesting tidbit on Jokic and Michael Malone, Gary Harris, and the start of summer league practices.
