Dan, Jeremy and Zach get into a plethora of topics this week

The gang is back to talk about the 2017-2018 NBA schedule release but first they take questions from our loyal listeners including whether the Denver Nuggets or Denver Broncos will win 4 games first. Next, we’ll break down Nikola Jokic, what we hope he’s improved in the offseason and where he can take the Nuggets if he makes the leap to perennial all-star.
