On this week’s Pickaxe Pundits Show (airs every Saturday at 4PM MDT on Nothin But Net Radio) Zach Mikash and Gordon Gross break down the Denver Nuggets 2018 NBA Draft night and the surprising selection of Michael Porter Jr. The guys talk about Porter’s health, whether or not they think he’ll play this season and the long term impact he’ll have on the Nuggets ceiling if he can live up to the promise. Next the guys talk about the Nuggets two other draft picks, Jarred Vanderbilt and Thomas Welsh, and where they fit with this team. Finally, they break down the news of Wilson Chandler opting in to his player option and what that means for the Nuggets financial situation and how the roster is suddenly becoming very crowded.
