Wind responds to a couple of listener questions on Jamal Murray’s defense and what Nikola Jokic will be like as a free agent recruiter and then gives out his final report card for Gary Harris’ season and if Malik Beasley’s breakout season makes Denver’s starting shooting guard expendable. Finally, the definitive ranking of the five songs on Will Barton’s EP.…

Wind discusses some potential Nuggets offseason moves and why Denver feels it can appeal to top-tier free agents looking to grow their on and off the court brands. Also, some highlights from the Nuggets mailbag posted on BSN Denver.com Friday. Notes on a potential G League team, Denver getting a Pascal Siakam-like leap from someone on its roster, and why…

Game 1 of the NBA Finals is in the books, and Pascal Siakam, the 25-year-old from Cameroon who only started playing organized basketball seven years ago, will never have to pay for a drink in Toronto again. Siakam was incredible in the Raptors’ Thursday night win over the Warriors, finishing with 32 points on a near-perfect 14 of 17 shooting,…...

Wind reacts to Nikola Jokic getting the First Team All-NBA center spot over Joel Embiid and why the Serbian’s playoff performance should put to rest any doubts that he didn’t deserve the honor. Also, should Denver go all-in on Jamal Murray, and is Mason Plumlee back next year? DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE! iTunes link | Stitcher Link | Pocket Casts…

Nikola Jokic’s best argument for the First Team All-NBA selection he secured Thursday as the NBA continued to roll out their end-of-year awards was what had just transpired over the last month. Jokic engaged in a memorable back-and-forth with Joel Embiid for the First Team center spot throughout the regular season. Denver got off to a 9-1 start and raced…...

Also, a brief scouting report on Nuggets rookie Michael Porter Jr., who spoke with the media Monday for the first time since the beginning of the season and…

We grade every performance from the Nuggets with our Dynamic Player Rating (DPR), which takes into account 12 different statistical factors. Note: for DPRs that are lacking context, our…...

Eyes misty, shoulders slumped, head facing the floor, Nikola Jokic lingered at his locker like a gray cloud minutes after the Denver Nuggets’ dream season came to an end. Joker, as Mike Miller nicknamed him as a wisecracking rookie, wearing only compression shorts decorated with fishing lures, couldn’t mask his dejection. It mattered little that he’d just scored 29 points…

There’s a tale rooted deep in Nuggets lore that serves as a fitting conclusion to Denver’s dream season, which came to an end Sunday. In 2013, soon after Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly took over Denver’s front office, he and his staff went out to lunch at a downtown establishment. During the meal, he offered his waiter tickets…...

Just like that, it’s over. The Nuggets’ dream season ended Sunday afternoon at Pepsi Center at the hands of C.J. McCollum. McCollum finished with 37 points, eight rebounds and nine assists as the Trail Blazers won 100-96. The Nuggets got out to a 29-17 lead but in typical Game 7 fashion, Portland worked itself back into the game behind McCollum.…...

Michael Malone called him the “MVP of the game.” Watching it unfold Thursday, it was hard to believe that as recently as four months ago, Rodney Hood was a middling player on one of the NBA’s worst teams. In February, Cleveland traded him to Portland for Nik Stauskas, a fringe rotation player, Wade Baldwin IV, currently teamless, and a pair…...

Juancho Hernangomez hasn’t played a meaningful minute for the Nuggets in the playoffs and hasn’t been a part of Denver’s rotation for months. But Hernangomez still gets his cardio in every night by vaulting from his seat onto the court in celebration each time one of his teammates scores a basket or makes a defensive stop. Game 5 of the…...
