On today’s show, Dane is joined by Adam Mares, who covers the Denver Nuggets for DNVR Sports. Dane and Adam get into the linear progression of the Nuggets since the 2017-18 season compared to the Minnesota Timberwolves volatility. The role of front office continuity, the growth of a Big 3, and the coaching schematics that unleashed Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets.

  • The Timberwolves having seven lead executives since the Nuggets hired Tim Connelly, and the impact of front office continuity
  • The similarities and differences between the trio of Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards compared to the trio of Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr.
  • Chris Finch modeling the Timberwolves defense after what Michael Malone installed in Denver before the Nuggets defense made a leap
  • How Finch helped create the Nuggets offensive identity when he was in Denver, and Adam’s optimism for the impact Finch will have on Towns
