Trade deadline talk, Michael Malone’s rotations and more


In the latest edition of the Nuggets Ink podcast, beat writer Mike Singer and deputy sports editor Matt Schubert reconvene with the Nuggets in first place and about to begin an extended homestand. Among the topics discussed:

    • The Christmas night game against the Phoenix Suns produced one of the first signature moments of the season: Aaron Gordon’s hellacious dunk over Landry Shamet. Mike and Matt revisit that night, that moment and the Nuggets’ recent surge with nine wins in their last 12 games.
    • Buy or sell: Will Bruce Brown keep up his career year from the 3-point line? Will Jamal Murray re-gain his shooting stroke from outside? Will Aaron Gordon make his first All-Star team? Will the Nuggets be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline? And will the Nuggets finish the regular season with the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference?
    • Mike answers questions from listeners, including one wondering why Christian Braun’s defensive contributions aren’t giving him more minutes, and another who wants to know who might be on the trading block if Nuggets GM Calvin Booth decides to make a move at the deadline.
    • Closing out the show, Matt reads the latest listener reviews from iTunes. And no, he’s not 75 years old.
