Pickaxe Podcast: Gary Harris contract extension and wrapping up Denver Nuggets preseason

It’s time for real basketball, but first Gary is locked up! Zach, Mike and Jeremy react to Gary Harris’ big extension and whether or not the Denver Nuggets will be a luxury tax team. Next they talk about the preseason and how Coach Malone will try to keep Kenneth Faried and Trey Lyles happy even if they’re not getting minutes. Finally, it’s time for some regular season predictions. Also, apologies on the audio, trying out a new mic and the sound was turned up way too much. Gary Harris Extension $74 Million guaranteed, too much, just right, steal of a deal? Is Gary going to be an...

How Would Kenneth Faried Look in the Trail Blazers Lineup?

How Would Kenneth Faried Look in the Trail Blazers Lineup?

Portland’s starting five isn’t complete. Could a strong-rebounding power forward push them into contention? The Portland Trail Blazers didn’t make any huge trades over the summer, but that’s not stopping Blazer’s Edge readers from suggesting players to fill out the corners of the Blazers roster. Today’s example comes from @Timmybosso, who covets Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried and wonders what he’d look like in a Blazers uniform. @DaveDeckard Faried hasn’t played. Could we steal another disgruntled big from Den?— Timothy Lee Bosso (@Timmybosso) October 1,...

Stiffs Roundtable: Preseason reactions and favorite players

Stiffs Roundtable: Preseason reactions and favorite players

A look at what three preseason games means for Denver Who do you want to be the starting point guard, Emmanuel Mudiay, Jamal Murray or Jameer Nelson? Ryan Blackburn (@RyanBlackburn9): Jamal Murray. The Nuggets saw (and have seen this year) a bright future for Jamal Murray. He provides the most spacing, the most defense, and the right amount of firepower in the starting lineup. Emmanuel Mudiay also fits very well with the bench, as that group needs someone they can defer to at times, as long as Kenneth Faried-Mason Plumlee isn’t the big man bench combo. If the goal is to really make noise...

Nuggets need to make a decision on Kenneth Faried, and soon

Are the Nuggets and Faried coming to a crossroads? One of the takeaways from last night’s preseason victory over the Golden State Warriors was the notable absence of Kenneth Faried from the rotation. Yes, it’s the preseason and the mixing and matching of lineups is inevitable and probably getting scrutinized far too much, but for Faried to not even see the floor was a surprise, especially given the power forward’s rather direct comments on Media Day. While Faried may see himself as a starting caliber player for this team, the reality is with Paul Millsap on board, the Manimal will...

Watch: Trey Lyles looks forward to a fresh start with the Denver Nuggets

Watch: Trey Lyles looks forward to a fresh start with the Denver Nuggets

Chad Andrus talks with Trey Lyles I’m pretty excited about Trey Lyles. When the Denver Nuggets made the draft night trade that sent Donovan Mitchell to Utah for Lyles and the draft pick that would become Tyler Lydon, many fans (myself included) wondered what the end-game was. Denver already had a plethora of power forwards and it was well known that the team was in pursuit of Kevin Love via trade and ultimately Paul Millsap in free agency. With Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur already on the roster, adding two more power forwards seemed odd, to say the least. But lost in all of that was...

Watch: Kenneth Faried didn’t pull punches on media day

“I am not a bench player.” Kenneth Faried was the last one to come out onto the practice court and address the media yesterday at Pepsi Center for the Denver Nuggets media day, arriving some 15 minutes after everyone else had left the court. In the most literal sense, when he sat before the cameras he had everyone’s attention. He didn’t let that spotlight go to waste. In a series of interviews, one with the media as a whole and another with our own Chad Andrus, Faried laid out his perspective coming into the season and let’s just say that he doesn’t seem to be as excited or...

Kenneth Faried: “I am a starter”

The Manimal opens up on media day One of the biggest questions heading into the season has been how longtime power forward Kenneth Faried will fit into the rotation now that Paul Millsap is on board. At media day, the Manimal opened up about where he thinks he belongs on the team. Kenneth Faried: "I'll just put this out there. I. Am. A. Starter."— Hardwood Paroxysm (@HPbasketball) September 25, 2017 Faried: "If this team doesn't want to give me the minutes, there are 29 other teams."
