The Nuggets have never won the NBA championship, nor have they ever won the Western Conference. They have won 10 division titles though, three in the old ABA, and seven in the NBA, most recently in 2010. They have had some good teams recently, but have had the unfortunate circumstance of playing in the same division as the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Nuggets were on the of the NBA best teams through the end of the 2013 season, however a poor showing in the NBA playoffs led them to fire both their general manager and head coach George Karl. The Nuggets are in the beginning of a rebuild, and it will be a while before they contend again. In fact, earlier this season the Nuggets fired Brian Shaw and replaced him with Melvin Hunt.
The Denver Nuggets finished the 2014-2015 regular season with a record of 30-52, missing the playoffs by 15 games. To be honest, the Nuggets were never close to postseason contention at any point in time during this season. The Nuggets held the 7th selection overall in the 2015 NBA draft and used to select Emmanuel Mudiay, an American-born point guard who spent last season playing in China rather than going to college. Mudiay was originally thought of as a number one overall selection but many say his decision to play overseas rather than go to college severely hurt his draft stock.
The Nuggets elected to find a new head coach this Summer as well, and hired Michael Malone, former head coach of the Sacramento Kings. After the debacle that was the 2014 season, which included two head coaching changes in a matter of months, the Nuggets seem to finally be heading in the right direction.
