Top 10 Denver Nuggets of All Time

The Denver Nuggets have a very rich history.  Formed in 1967 as the Denver Larks and then becoming the Rockets of the ABA, Denver has seen its fair share of talented basketball players.

While the Nuggets don’t boast an NBA championship, they have still left their mark on the league.  They have three players in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and a number of NBA records.

When the franchise joined the NBA in the 1976 NBA-ABA merger, the team name was changed to the Nuggets since Houston already owned the rights to the Rockets.”

It was hard to narrow down the top 10 players of all time for the Nuggets.  The players I have chosen may not have been the most talented, but they have made the biggest impact on the franchise.  I decided to exclude coaches on this list because I think it’s unfair to compare players and coaches.  

Here are the Nuggets that I think deserve top-10 honors.
