Ryan discusses the postponed game, shares some random thoughts, and opines for Nikola Jokić’s MVP candidacy

Host Ryan Blackburn discusses what happened at Ball Arena on Monday night to postpone the game between the Denver Nuggets and Detroit Pistons, pushing off the return of Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee to the Mile High City.

Ryan then shares his general thoughts on teams around the NBA, focusing in on record, net rating, and even how the bottom of the standings might impact the top some time soon. This includes Bradley Beal trade discussion and the Aaron Gordon ankle injury.

Finally, Denver shares his thoughts about Nikola Jokić and his MVP candidacy:

  • Who are the biggest contenders for MVP?
  • Why it should be Nikola Jokić
  • Why on-off numbers matter less for Denver and Jokić than they do Philadelphia 76ers and Joel Embiid
  • What Jokić means to the Nuggets
