The Denver Nuggets were a charter member of the American Basketball Association in 1967, changing their name from the Larks to the Rockets prior to the tip-off of their inaugural season. The franchise adopted the Nuggets mascot in 1974, two years before merging into the National Basketball Association.

Denver has won 10 division titles, but still seeks its first NBA championship. The franchise has retired six jersey numbers, including No. 2 Alex English and No. 55 Dikembe Mutombo.
