So, where does MPJ really rank among the best players at the small forward position?

In this episode of Pickaxe and Roll, Ryan Blackburn asked Denver Nuggets fans what they want to see happen in the 2023-24 NBA season that DIDN’T happen for the Nuggets in the 2022-23 season. Nuggets fans shared their takes on Jamal Murray becoming an All-Star, Michael Porter Jr. dominating, and the bench guys stepping up. From Zeke Nnaji to Reggie Jackson to rookie contributors, Nuggets fans are hoping to be surprised by Denver’s bench unit in 2024.

Then, Ryan ranks the Top 10 Small Forwards in the NBA, defined by players that also guard other small forwards (So, no LeBron James, Kevin Durant, or Kawhi Leonard). Where does MPJ rank among Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum, Jimmy Butler, and other players at his position? Did Porter do enough to crack the top 10?

Finally, Ryan goes over comments from listeners to discuss the most polarizing aspects of his list.
