About Denver Nuggets
Denver Nuggets Ticket 2019 Season Outlook
There might be no team flying more under the radar than the Denver Nuggets this season. After an extremely successful 54-28 season last year that saw them make to the Western Conference semifinals, the Nuggets are ready for more. So many teams in the Western Conference made free agency moves, but the Nuggets are standing firm with the young successful core that led them to an entertaining season.
The main attraction in Denver is center Nikola Jokic. An MVP candidate this season, Jokic demands all the attention of opposing defenses. His court vision and big bruising body make him an absolute nightmare in the low post. His running mate, guard Jamal Murra, is one of the best young guards in the league. He has no fear to go along with a silky jump shot. Murray and Jokic will be pillars of the franchise for years to come.
However, you need more than two players to compete for a title and that's exactly what the Nuggets have. Gary Harris, Will Barton and Paul Millsap are key parts of the depth that the Nuggets possess. Bol Bol, the 2019 draft selection of the Denver Nuggets is another promising talent that could play a huge role for the Nuggets. All of this adds up to the Denver Nuggets building off of the success they had last year.
