Denver Nuggets Tickets

Denver Nuggets Tickets on Sale

The Denver Nuggets knew they were going to lose Carmelo Anthony, so they ultimately shipped him to New York and received Danilo Gallinnari, Wilson Chandler, and Raymond Felton in return. These three proved to be valuable rotation players on a team that lacks a true star. George Karl managed to make it work last season and the fans are counting on much the same in 2012.

The Pepsi Center could lose three familiar faces coming into the new NBA schedule. Kenyon Martin's eight figure contract, J.R. Smith's mid-seven figure contract, and Wilson Chandler's steal of a deal are all expiring. Martin may be an integral part of the interior defense, but he is not worth his last season's salary, so it will be interesting to see if he is willing to take a pay cut to stay. His absence and the potential absence of Smith and Chandler could have a disastrous effect on the Denver Nuggets ticket sales. However, it is unlikely those two are going any place.

Denver Nuggets History

The Denver Nuggets have been playing professional basketball since 1967. They began as an ABA franchise as the Rockets, adopting the Nuggets in 1974. Spencer Haywood came to the Nuggets after the NBA refused to let him play because he did not graduate from college. Haywood averaged almost 30 points and 20 rebounds a game in his rookie season, his only season in Denver before jumping leagues. The Nuggets became instant contenders after the name change though. Larry Brown coached the Nuggets to four straight conference or division titles, reaching the ABA finals once and advancing to the Western Conference finals in 1978.

Doug Moe took over as coach during the 1980-1981 season. He and the Nuggets had a relationship for a decade with an emphasis on scoring. Alex English and Kiki Vandeweghe became important cogs in this offensive machine, but Denver proved unable to reach the NBA Finals. The 1990s became the Dikembe Mutombo era. Mutombo anchored a Nuggets roster with Dale Ellis, Jalen Rose, LaPhonso Ellis, Bryant Stith, and Antonio McDyess. Once again, the Denver Nuggets were unable to advance very far in the Western Conference playoffs.

The Carmelo Anthony era followed. Anthony and Coach George Karl became longtime partners, reaching first place or second place in the Northwest Division standings from the 2005-06 to the 2009-10 season. TheSeats has the Denver Nuggets tickets for the Pepsi Center for the beginning of a new era.
