Nuggets Numbers - Projecting the rotation for 2019-20

With the 2019-20 season rapidly approaching, the Denver Nuggets have one of the most talented rosters in the NBA from top to bottom. In this episode, I give my thoughts on who I believe will start games, be the primary backups, and sit the bench for the majority of the season. With so many candidates to start at small forward and an underrated decision to make at power forward, I dove into a short episode and broke down each position and what I expect to happen.(Note: this episode was recorded on Wednesday morning and posted on Thursday)Learn more about your ad choices.

Nuggets Numbers - Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets stacked rotation

Carmelo Anthony appeared on ESPN's First Take to discuss his current free agency with Stephen A. Smith. He spoke about his time with the Nuggets, how his career has evolved, and some of the mistakes along the way. During the interview, he made references to the media giving him a bad rap as one of the reasons he isn't currently signed with an NBA team.To discuss his comments, as well as some detailed discussion on Denver's rotation decisions during the 2019-20 season, I brought on Zach Mikash, former Stiffs Deputy Editor and media member. Zach and I had a good time evaluating Melo's fit in Denver, choosing starters for opening night, and mapping out a congested rotation.Enjoy!Learn more about your ad choices.

Nuggets Numbers - Looking ahead to 2020 free agency

The NBA offseason is clearly hitting the next stage in which nothing of major importance occurs for roughly a month straight. The upcoming regular season schedule will emerge some time in August. The FIBA World Cup will be played in late August and September. Player Rankings will be out of control.This episode of Nuggets Numbers focuses on none of that and instead looks ahead at 2020 free agency. The Denver Nuggets committed to continuity for the 2019-20 season, but with seven upcoming free agents in 2020, change appears to be on the horizon.With Paul Millsap, Mason Plumlee, Torrey Craig, Malik Beasley, Juancho Hernangomez, Thomas Welsh, and newcomer Jerami Grant set to hit the market in 2020, how will the Nuggets handle the impending roster turnover? Will they shape rotations to match who will be in Denver long term? Will they make trades before or during the season? Will they plan on losing several players when the salary cap bill comes due?I break all of it down and more.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Nuggets Numbers - The Jerami Grant trade episode

As it turns out, the biggest move the Denver Nuggets decided to make wasn't the Jamal Murray extension or exercising the player option on Paul Millsap's contract. The Nuggets acquired forward Jerami Grant on Monday morning using a traded player exception and a first round pick. I brought on a Denver Stiff alum in Gordon Gross to discuss the move, and Denver's new place in the Western Conference hierarchy,Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Nuggets Numbers - Wild Free Agency and the Jamal Murray extension

While the Kawhi Leonard free agency decision will potentially change how Denver Nuggets fans will view this offseason, enough has happened to warrant discussion on the changing landscape of the NBA. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are teammates on the Brooklyn Nets. The Philadelphia 76ers pivoted from Jimmy Butler and J.J. Redick to Al Horford and Josh Richardson. The Golden State Warriors have D'Angelo Russell for some reason.To break it all down, Ryan brought on former second-in-command at Denver Stiffs Zach Mikash to discuss free agency and the Nuggets' place in it, including the Jamal Murray extension and where the Nuggets go from here.Learn more about your ad choices.
