The Dig: Musical Chairs - Which Denver Nuggets should be starting by the playoffs?

Two historically good reserves and a healthy IT are making things interesting to find the best starting lineup in time for the playoffs.

A Denver Nuggets Podcast

The Dig is a Denver Nuggets podcast by Nick Hertzog and Jeremy Poley that tries to put its fingers on the pulse of the most dominant Denver Nuggets narrative over every 2-week period. It consistently fails and goes down in a blaze of fire which winds up being more entertaining than the show would’ve been anyway.


THIS WEEK’S THEME

Malik Beasley and Monte Morris are putting up historical numbers. Isaiah Thomas looked good in his debut and has a chance to recapture his magic. Combine this with a fragile and inconsistent starting lineup and is it time to shake things up with the starters?

To be honest, we barely made it through half of our show material because the depth of conflict in this theme is so deep. There’s an obnoxiously wide pit of takes to roll around in here, so jump on in.
