A Brief Recap
Following the hugely successful 2012-13 season, the Denver Nuggets lost red-hot NBA executive Masai Ujiri to the Toronto Raptors and his potential replacement (Pete D’Alessandro) to the Sacramento Kings. Head Coach George Karl was dismissed and franchise star Andre Iguodala opted out of his deal and signed with the Golden State Warriors. Because of this, Owner Stan Kroenke (who also owns the Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Rapids and St. Louis Rams) hired one of the rising stars among NBA execs, Tim Connelly, to be the GM. Then, Connelly and Kroenke gave Brian Shaw his first opportunity to lead a team. Shaw has been among the hottest coaching candidates for years and has proven an ability to develop young talent. With a Denver Nuggets roster teeming with young talent, Shaw looks to be an ideal fit and will continue to lead the Nuggets for the upcoming season.
The 2014-15 season will see the return of JJ Hickson, JaVale McGee, Danilo Gallinari and Nate Robinson, all bouncing back stronger than ever after last season’s injuries. Gary Harris, No. 19 pick, joins the Nuggets this year to back up shooting guard Aaron Harris. Point Guard Ty Lawson and power forward Kenneth Farried are also returning as reliable sources of speed and skill. Will Brian Shaw lead these powerful players to success? Can Danilo Gallinari get back to where he was before his knee injury? Lots of questions! Find the answers at Pepsi Center with ScoreBig.
A Big Change Brings Big Results
Founded in 1967 as the Denver Larks and renamed the same year to become the Rockets, this Colorado franchise was part of the ABA for a decade before joining the NBA before the 1976-77 season. Once part of the NBA, the Denver Nuggets were born, and they successfully reached the playoffs nine consecutive seasons during the 80s. Under the direction of iconic coaches Larry Brown and then Doug Moe, the Nuggets became known for their supercharged “motion offense” led by Alex English and Kiki Vandeweghe. Reaching the Western Conference Finals in 1985, the Nuggets lost a 5-game series to the rival Los Angeles Lakers.
After a period of decline through much of the 1990s, the Nuggets bounced back in a big way with the league-altering 2003 NBA Draft. Sitting in the three-spot, the Nuggets landed Syracuse star Carmelo Anthony who was just off a sensational NCAA National Championship. With Anthony emerging as one of the top scorers in the NBA and George Karl at the helm, the Nuggets went from a franchise that had missed the playoff for almost a decade to one of the most consistent teams in the league. Though Anthony now plays for the New York Knicks, he and running mates Allen Iverson and then Chauncey Billups helped transform the culture in Denver.
