A national perspective on Nikola Jokic’s early MVP case, Aaron Gordon’s All-Star chances and trade deadline possibilities – The Denver Post


In the latest edition of the Nuggets Ink podcast, beat writer Mike Singer and deputy sports editor Matt Schubert are joined by The Athletic’s Sam Amick to talk a multitude of Nuggets topics. Among the topics discussed:

    • The Nuggets are sitting in first place in the Western Conference with an improving defense and one of the best offenses in the NBA. Just how real are the Nuggets’ title chances? Where does the defense need to get to in order to get over the top and reach the Finals?
    • Sam Amick weighs in with his thoughts on Nuggets general manager Calvin Booth and what he’s done early on handling the team’s roster. What are his impressions of the new GM’s approach thus far as a steward of Nikola Jokic’s prime? Where can Booth add to supplement his team’s chances at a title?
    • Who on the Nuggets roster might be able to bring something valuable back in a trade? How is Bones Hyland viewed around the league? Would anyone want to take on Michael Porter Jr. and his contract?
    • Amick gives his thoughts on Jokic’s case for a third consecutive MVP. Will voter fatigue play a part in his chances?
