Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets were actually in the inaugural NBA season
but folded before the second year began. They returned in
1976 and were one of the higher scoring teams. Being based so
high above sea level in the mountainous region of Colorado,
the squad gets used to the altitude. It can be a problem for
visiting teams who tend to struggle with the thinner air and as a
consequence, most Denver teams have had an uptempo style.
Denver hasn’t had championship-level success but has been a
fan favourite because of its playing style and personalities like
Dikembe Motumbo, Alex English, and more recently Carmelo
Anthony.
