*Important note: This podcast was recorded during Nuggets shootaround prior to the their game against the Phoenix Suns. So don’t expect an update from Connelly on the Jokic injury. Stay tuned to Denver Stiffs later today for all the breaking news on the Nuggets star center

And we are back!

For the sixth time, Denver Nuggets General Manager Tim Connelly joins Nate Timmons and myself to talk about where the Nuggets stand at the mid-point of this season.

We go over:

1. Connelly's thought's on "making the playoffs" as a goal.

2. The difficulty and due diligence of trades

3. Nikola Jokic and his impact on the roster

4. The youth of the roster, and how the young players are doing midway through the season (including thoughts on Jamal Murray, Juancho Hernangomez and Malik Beasley)

5. Our annual non-sports related topics. This time, "Going hard" in Las Vegas

As always, enjoy the podcast!
