In this week’s episode of The Pickaxe Podcast, I am joined by’s Matt Moore (@hpbasketball). In addition to writing for, Matt is the founder of the Hardwood Paroxysm Network and one of the OG’s in NBA blogging. We talked about a wide range of topics regarding the Denver Nuggets including where they go from here, Jokic’s future, and Wilson Chandler’s value to the team. We also talk about the state of the NBA, superteams, and the Olympics.

It's the longest episode of the podcast to date AND one that covers so many interesting details about the Nuggets obstacles ahead. It's always great talking hoops with Matt and if you aren't reading his stuff, you're missing out on a lot of great insights and analysis. I hope you enjoy it and if you do, please remember to subscribe on itunes.
