The Denver Nuggets are a professional basketball team based in Denver, Colorado. 

The team was founded in 1967 as the Denver Rockets and joined the NBA in 1976. 

Since then, the Nuggets have had a successful history, with several playoff appearances and a conference finals appearance in 2009.

The Nuggets' success can largely be attributed to their star players, including current players like Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray, and Michael Porter Jr. 

Jokic, the team's center, was named the NBA MVP in the 2020-21 season, becoming the first player in Nuggets history to win the award.

In addition to their star players, the Nuggets have a strong coaching staff led by head coach Michael Malone. 

Under his leadership, the team has developed a strong offensive game, with a focus on ball movement and three-point shooting.

Off the court, the Nuggets are known for their commitment to social justice and community outreach. 

In 2020, the team's players and coaches participated in protests and demonstrations following the death of George Floyd, and the team has also launched several initiatives to promote equality and diversity.

The Nuggets play their home games at Ball Arena, formerly known as the Pepsi Center.
