This has been a great week for the Locked on Nuggets podcast. On Tuesday Dr. Travis Heath joined the show to talk about how NBA coaches work the officials. On Wednesday I was joined by Ben Taylor to talk about Nikola Jokic’s upside and why he has the potential to be the greatest Denver Nuggets player of all time. Yesterday I shared my notes on Denver’s win over the San Antonio Spurs. If you missed any of those episode, I encourage you to take a listen Some great guests with some fantastic insights into this team.
Today, I am joined by Nate Duncan, the host of the very popular Dunc’n On Basketball Podcast. Nate shares his thoughts on Denver’s impressive season and where he would power rank the Nuggets in the Western Conference. He also talks about the long-term outlook of the team.
