When looking back over the near-50-year history of the Denver Nuggets as an NBA franchise, it is hard not to think about what might have been. This is an expansion team that entered the league with a bang and almost instant success. Despite the promise of those early days, the Nuggets have never won an NBA Championship. Even so, every so often the Denver Nuggets have a season to remember, which is what makes them so unpredictable and exciting year after year.
The Nuggets first started as the Denver Larks, playing in the ABA from 1967. However, before long, the team was sold to a new owner and renamed the Denver Rockets. The Rockets played in the ABA for almost ten years, with their best season led Spencer Haywood, who was named as the ABA MVP. However, the Rockets never found any postseason success.
The franchise moved to the NBA for the 1976/77 season, changing its name following a contest, as the ‘Rockets’ was already being used by the Houston Rockets. The newly named Denver Nuggets got off to a great start with a 50-32 winning season and entering the playoffs. Most expansion teams take years to find their feet and enter the playoff picture, but the Nuggets got the formula right from day one. In fact, the team went and did it again over the next two seasons, securing playoff berths in the 1977-78 and 1978-79 seasons.
During this early spell and into the 1980s, the franchise became famous as high-scoring entertainers. Through the 1981-82 season the team hit at least 100 points in every single game. This was part of the team’s 136 games breaking the century barrier, an NBA-record streak. During this famous campaign, the Nuggets secured a per-game average of 126.5 points, also an NBA scoring record.
From 1981 to 1990, Denver made the playoffs in every season, reaching the conference finals in the 1984/84 season. However, the Nuggets lost in five games to the Kareem Abdul Jabbar led Los Angeles Lakers. It was an era of relative success, but the Nuggets seemed to be unable to take that next step towards becoming a true title contender. While the team had talented players like Alex English and Kiki VanDeWeghe, it failed to make it to an NBA Finals.
And it would never happen as the 1990s brought an era of mediocrity along with a change from the distinctive rainbow franchise colors to a more standard dark navy. During the 1990s, the Denver Nuggets would enter the playoffs just twice (1993/94 and 1994/95). However, both postseasons were very short lived. Following the 1994/95 season, the Nuggets didn’t make it to the playoffs until 2003/04.
However, once the Nuggets got a taste for the playoffs in 2003/04, the team didn’t look back, reaching the postseason every year from this season until 2012/13. The team has plenty of talented players in this period, including Carmelo Anthony, Allen Iverson, and Billups, but the coaching of George Karl through this period was crucial. Despite reaching the conference final in 2008/09, once again the team never made it to the NBA Finals.
As seems to be the pattern for the Nuggets, the team was lost for a number of years after success before finding its way. The team didn’t make the playoffs from 2013 to 2018. However, the foundations for success were laid in the 2015 Draft as the team selected Nikola Jovic in the second round.
Jovic has been named the NBA MVP twice in 2021 and 2022, leading the Denver Nuggets to the conference finals in 2019/20. Fans of the Nuggets hope the team can reach new heights behind their star man Jovic and finally bring an NBA Championship to Denver.
