Welcome back to the second episode of Kirk Your Enthusiasm! The first episode prompted a lot of discussion so I thought why not try again with a different guest!

This week I was joined by Adam Mares of Denver Stiffs and Locked On Nuggets. Adam and I go way back and as a result of his constant vigilance, I was in early on both Nikola Jokic and how good the Denver Nuggets would eventually be.

On this episode we touch on where he thinks the Mavericks rank in the Western Conference. Adam also preaches the value of patience in a rebuild and believes the Mavericks have one more year before making much noise. We pivot to his views on both Luka Donic and Kristaps Porzingis before discussing the Nuggets. We round out the podcast with some fawning over Jokic by both of us then end on where the Nuggets fit in the top of the brutal Western Conference.
