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 claiming the NBA podcast championship throne, The Dig did what every champion does and moved to LA where its socially acceptable to talk about yourself in every sentence.
THIS WEEK’S THEME
The death of the Warriors has led to the re-birth of the NBA through Free Agency ‘19. A $30m option for Paul Millsap has had a lot of fans thinking about all of the ways we could use that money. And virtually no one was correct. That money was given back to Millsap. Jamal Murray was early-extended for the max. Even Trey Lyles got a qualifying offer thrown his way. I was merely parked across from the Pepsi Center and now I’ll be competing with Barton for a starting spot. Chances I’ll actually make it? Real goooood.
This week’s theme is: Bringing it Back
