We proudly sponsor the Denver Nuggets! The Nuggets became Denver's hometown basketball team in 1974 after owners Frank Goldberg and Bud Fischer moved the team from the ABA to the NBA. The name of the team at the time was the Rockets, but Houston, another NBA team, had already taken the name. They held a contest to choose the new name, and the Nuggets were born – named for the original Denver team that lived from 1948-50. The Nuggets have had a long history in Denver of both success and struggle, with 7 division titles in the NBA since 1977 – as well as 3 titles from their early days in the ABA. The Nuggets have produced legends such as Carmelo Anthony, Allen Iverson, and Dikembe Mutombo. We are proud to support this local Colorado team as they represent our great state in Denver's Pepsi Center.
