5280 Hoops Show: Denver Nuggets Podcast Happy Halloween to all the hoops heads out there. Jordan Morey and Peter Sherwill are back this week with another episode of the only Denver Nuggets podcast. This week we break down the first game of the Denver Nuggets season against the Sacramento Kings. DeMarcus Cousins went into beast-mode against Denver. Jordan asks if the Nuggets would have won that game had Danilo Gallinari been available to play. Jordan also brings up the fact that Peter referred to himself as the “Nuggets Nostradamus” and Peter rethinks that one. Also, we get into Jordan’s opinion that Anthony Randolph should start. Then we go Around the Association to talk about how Peter thinks the Los Angeles Lakers could get Andrew Wiggins. Jordan is excited about the Nuggets home opener against the Portland Trailblazers and his first time experiencing the Pepsi Center. We also decide to try to pick the games this year and that can only end badly. In honor of Halloween we introduce Trick, Treat or Trade. Plus, FastBreaks, Thursday Night Football and Halloween music. The post Denver Nuggets Podcast: Episode 30 appeared first on Hardwood Gold Rush.
