About Denver Nuggets

Denver Nuggets are an American professional basketball team based in Denver. The Nuggets compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of the league’s Western Conference Northwest Division. The team was founded as the Denver Larks in 1967 as a charter franchise of the American Basketball Association (ABA), but changed its name to Rockets before the first season. It changed its name again to the Nuggets in 1974. After the name change, the Nuggets played for the final ABA Championship title in 1976, losing to the New York Nets.

The team has had some periods of success, qualifying for the ABA Playoffs for all seasons from 1967 to the 1976 ABA playoffs where it lost in the finals. The team joined the NBA in 1976 after the ABA–NBA merger and qualified for the NBA playoffs in nine consecutive seasons in the 1980s and ten consecutive seasons from 2004 to 2013. However, it has not made an appearance in a championship round since its last year in the ABA; as such, they are also the only of the four surviving former ABA teams to have never reached the NBA Finals. The Nuggets play their home games at Pepsi Center, which they share with the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League (NHL) and the Colorado Mammoth of the National Lacrosse League (NLL).

For the 2018–19 season, the Nuggets modified their logos and uniforms, featuring various color schemes that the team has worn in their history. The new color scheme consists of midnight blue (navy), sunshine yellow, flatirons red (maroon) and skyline blue (royal) — the latter color is only featured on the “Statement” jersey and two of the team’s new alternate logos. Powder blue, which had been part of the team’s color scheme since 2003, was eliminated from all logos and uniforms. The white “Association” jersey features “Nuggets” in flatirons red, with sunshine yellow trim and midnight blue numbers with sunshine yellow trim, while the midnight blue “Icon” jersey features “Denver” in sunshine yellow, with flatirons red trim and white numbers with flatirons red trim. Both sets will also include a mountain peak striping on the shorts and the pick axe logo on the waistline. The skyline blue “Statement” jersey features “Mile High City” in white surrounding sunshine yellow numbers, plus a midnight blue mountain peak silhouette and a sunshine yellow pick axe logo on the sides of the shorts. A modernized version of the skyline logo adorns the waistline. The circular “pick axe logo,” which had served as the Nuggets’ alternate logo since 2005, became the team’s new primary logo, replacing the snow-capped mountain/enlarged western-style wordmark logo that had served as the team’s primary logo (in three different versions) since 1993. The colors on the circular pick axe logo were also modified with the team’s new color scheme.
