The Denver Nuggets are a professional basketball team based in Denver, Colorado. They were one of four teams from the American Basketball Association that, upon its folding, were taken in by the NBA.

In the 2006-2007 season they made a landmark trade with the 76ers, in which they procured Allen Iverson, who has since been traded to the Detroit Pistons. Their record that year was over .500, (they won more than half their games), but they have struggled to get into the playoffs because of the strength of other teams in the West. They are one of six teams to have never won an NBA title. In 2020, they came within three games of defeating the Lakers to win a Western Conference final but ultimately came up short. Other prominent players on their team have included Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups.
