Don’t miss your chance to hang with the Stiffs, Super Mascot Rocky, the Denver Nuggets Dancers and your fellow diehard fans why we take in some Nuggets basketball! We’ll be hanging out down at the Celtic on Market street Saturday, January 6th to watch the Nuggets take on the Sacramento Kings at 7PM.

If you missed this week’s Pickaxe Pundits show (airs every Saturday at 4pm Mountain on Nothin But Net Radio) Then we got you covered right here! Zach, Ashley and Mike talk about the Nuggets big west coast two game road swing and whether or not it was a signal that the Denver Nuggets have turned a corner. Next, they get into the Minnesota Timberwolves and the growing rivalry between them and the Nuggets. After the break the crew breaks down the emergence of Trey Lyles and what it means to the long term picture of Denver’s core. Finally, with the Philadelphia 76ers in town the group got into a debate about whether or not they’d rather have Nikola Jokic or Joel Embiid.
