The Denver Nuggets are a NBA franchise rich in team history. This organization was born in 1967 as one of the original American Basketball Association franchises. When they played in the ABA in their early years they were known as the Denver Rockets before changing their name to the Nuggets in 1974. In 1976 the franchise joined the NBA after they merged with the ABA and today they compete in the Northwest Division in the Western Conference.
During the franchise’s early years in the ABA they were led by Ralph Simpson, a guard and forward who was selected to the ABA All-Star Team five times and to the All-ABA First-Team once. In 1976 the Nuggets made it to the ABA Finals led by the legendary Head Coach Larry Brown and Hall of Famer David Thompson. They would lose to the New York Nets though in the ABA Finals in six games. During the 1980s the team was led by Alex English and Kiki Vandeweghe, making it as far as the Western Conference Finals in 1985. English and Vandeweghe were both multiple time All-Stars over the course of their careers and English is now a member of the Hall of Fame. At the 1991 NBA Draft the Nuggets selected Dikembe Mutombo with the fourth overall pick and he played with the team until 1996. Mutombo is a Hall of Famer who won the Defensive Player of the Year Award four times during his decorated career. After Mutombo’s exit the Nuggets took another downturn until the 2003 NBA Draft when they selected Carmelo Anthony with the third overall pick and he went on to lead the organization to three division titles during his time there. Currently the Nuggets are on their way back to the top and with talented players on their roster like Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray.
