Are the Denver Nuggets ready for the Reggie Jackson experience?

In this episode of Pickaxe and Roll, Ryan Blackburn continues his 20 Questions Series with Part 4, focusing on Nuggets backup point guard Reggie Jackson. Did Jackson get a fair opportunity to claim the backup gig after signing off the buyout market last year? Is there reason to believe he will be better suited for the task this season instead?

Ryan goes over the numbers, the comparisons, and the expectations for Jackson heading into the 2023-24 NBA season. He focuses on Jackson’s skill set, how the veteran point guard can improve, and how Jackson fits next to young players like Christian Braun, Peyton Watson, and Zeke Nnaji.

Then, Ryan checks in on the FIBA World Cup and how Team USA, Canada, Serbia, and others are faring. Even without international Nuggets stars Nikola Jokić and Jamal Murray, Serbia and Canada are both performing admirably in group play. Team USA is also showing out with Anthony Edwards, Tyrese Haliburton, and Austin Reaves leading the way.
