1. Aaron Gordon’s on-ball defense has exceeded expectations. He had shown flashes of elite defense throughout his career, most notably in the first round of the 2019 NBA playoffs where he did an admirable job against Kawhi Leonard over the course of their five-game series. But through four games with the Denver Nuggets, Gordon has looked like a first-team all-defensive…...

1. By now everyone reading THE LIST is familiar with C Corner, one of the Nuggets’ most commonly used actions. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Nuggets got Aaron Gordon’s first dunk off of this action.  The Nuggets have run this for Michael Porter Jr. and Paul Millsap in the corner spot and have had great success. With…...

1. The most important aspect of Aaron Gordon’s skillset is his one-on-one defense. He does a great job of keeping his defender in front of him, utilizing his size and strength to contest shots, and moving his feet without fouling. He is more of a disciplined defender than overly aggressive defender, playing the angles and keeping the offense away from…...

Coach Karl also shares some insight into what it is like to participate in NBA all-star weekend, talks about some of his favorite stories from those events, and what things Jokic…

1. I love the way Michael Porter Jr. sets up the dribble handoff (DHO) with Nikola Jokic on this possession. Often times it’s the tiny details that gain you an advantage on any given possession.
