Has anyone heard of this guy Nikola Jokic? Despite finishing third in this year’s Rookie of the Year voting, Nikola Jokic is still unknown to the casual fan and a majority of the league. That started to change with his 25-point, 6-rebound performance against the United States in Rio.
Harrison Wind and Dan Fatigato review the news from this past week including a reported training camp invite, a rumored assistant coach, and a candid Michael Malone who went on Zach Lowe’s podcast. They guys also try and find the soft spot for the Nuggets in the freshly released 2016-17 NBA schedule.
Next, Harrison and Dan look at Jokic, Joffrey Lauvergne and try and diagnose the problems with the US Olympic Team. Why are Paul George and Kevin Durant falling asleep on defense, why can’t DeMarcus Cousins do anything, and who poses the biggest threat to take down the Red, White, and Blue?
Finally, listen to Harrison’s interview with Wilson Chandler in its entirety during the final segment of the podcast.
