The Nuggets are good at basketball. Look no further than their 13-3 start, they’re NBA-leading defense, or their dynamic one-two punch of Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray. But do they have enough to be more than just a great regular season team? Is something still missing?

Host Nick Hertzog is joined this week by Ryan Blackburn to discuss whether the Nuggets have all the pieces they need to win a championship this year. Topics include the Jokic/Murray duo, leadership, defense, and wildcards. Ryan also comes with a few hot takes, including a particularly spicy bit about Kobe Bryant.

The Dig is a Denver Nuggets podcast by Nick Hertzog and Jeremy Poley (and the occasional special guest) that tries to put its fingers on the pulse of the most dominant Denver Nuggets narrative every week. Since the Nuggets are 13-3 to start the year, it’s hard to find things to complain about, though, so the hosts are considering some drastic measures to mess up the season including jinxes and TMZ leaks.
