NBA Media day is here! The long wait is finally over. This week’s Pickaxe Pundits show (airs every Saturday at 4PM on Nothin But Net Radio) tells you everything you need to know heading into the Denver Nuggets 2018-2019 NBA season. Mike Olson and Zach Mikash dive into a ton of topics including: what does it mean for Michael Malone to coach out his deal, how concerned are we about the injuries to Isaiah Thomas, Michael Porter Jr and Jarred Vanderbilt and will Nikola Jokic and Paul Millsap finally have all the kinks worked out? Great show!
