In players who barely even experienced the NBA to guys still on the court today, the Nuggets have continuously found some of basketball's greatest competitors.
There are a few factors to consider when ranking the top 25 Nuggets players of all time:
- How much the player contributed statistically combined with how much his team won. It's important that he brought the production on a consistent basis, but it must have turned into team success on the floor.
- How many seasons or games the player spent in Denver. Some of the greatest players to put on a Nuggets jersey only did so for a limited amount of time, which ultimately lowers their grading.
- How many All-Star appearances and NBA or ABA awards the player received. This can be the X-factor when deciding who is positioned higher between two players.
Let's dive into nearly half a century of Nuggets hoops and figure out who made the top 25 and who is the No. 1 player.
