This episode of the Pickaxe and Roll podcast is brimming with potential, just like Peyton Watson!

Host Ryan Blackburn shares his thoughts on the second-year wing/forward Watson in Part 6 of the 20 Questions preview series for the Denver Nuggets in the 2023-24 NBA season. In just 200 combined regular season and playoff minutes last year, Watson made a major impact on the fans with his energy, athleticism, defense, and dunking. Will Watson find a consistent role in the Nuggets rotation this season? What lineups do the Nuggets have to best showcase Watson’s potential?

Then, Ryan breaks down the new resting policy for the NBA and what it means for the Nuggets and other championship contenders, including why the Nuggets will be more affected by the rest rules post All-Star break.

Finally, Ryan discusses the partying Nikola Jokić with the Serbian National team, joined by U.S. Open winner Novak Djokovic, and why the Serbians have so much to celebrate. Shoutout P.J. Dozier.
