The Dig: Are the Nuggets a Sinking Ship? - Does Denver Have Too Many Holes to Stay Afloat?

Bad shooting, inconsistent defense, two Jokic ejections in two weeks, and some players in funks have a lot of Nuggets fans worried.

The Dig - 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. After farting away their education, Jeremy & Nick reached out to an “unnamed actress” from “an unnamed tv show about a full house” that knew a schmagutz they could bribe to let them start this silly podcast.


THIS WEEK’S THEME

After some questionable post-all-star-break success, the cracks in the Nuggets’ ship started showing in the win-loss column. A number of players are struggling individually. The team on a whole is performing well-below its season averages as they lumber their way around the last corner of the regular season.

This week’s theme is: Are the Nuggets a Sinking Ship?
