Contest: Win a Pair of Reebok Zig Encore Danilo Gallinari PEs

Leave a comment, win some kicks.

It’s been a tumultuous two seasons for the Denver Nuggets. First there was the Melodrama; then there was the big trade that ended it; then there was the first-round Playoff loss; then there was this year’s hot start, which was almost immediately followed by a rash of injuries and a precipitous fall in the Western Conference standings. And with Denver trying its best to hold on to its current one-game lead over the Phoenix Suns for the final spot in the Western Conference postseason race, we thought we’d reward a few Nuggets fans for their loyalty.

How?

Our friends at Reebok have given us four pairs of the Zig Encore Danilo Gallinari PEs (pictured above)—in Gallo’s size—which we’re giving away, right here.

All you have to do is tell us in the comments section of this post (please provide your real email address when commenting, so we can contact the winners properly) who your all-time favorite Denver Nugget is, and why. It’s that simple.

The winners will be selected and contacted later this week.

Good luck!

    My favorite Denver Nugget of all-time is the “Bird-Man” Chris Anderson. This is because of the energy he brings to every play of every game. Whether he plays 5 minutes or 40 minutes, he is always going to give it 100%. GO NUGGETS!!

  • Brandon

    Those shoes look nice..even better on my feet though.

  • Trevor B

    My favorite Nugget of all time is Birdman Andersen. Because I’m young and his story is incredible. And his tattoos.

  • http://redoftoothandclaw.ca/ niQ

    All time favorite Nugget? Marcus Camby! When he played for a team that mainly focused on offense, Camby provided the nightly defense that actually kept the team in check. He had ridiculous block every night, could rebound with the best of them, and was an underrated passer for a big man.

  • Jack Coates

    Alex English has to be the best because he led the Nuggets to 9 straight playoff appearances, is the all time scorer in denver’s history, and is one of the most prolific scorers in history. Plus, he was put into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1997!

  • http://redoftoothandclaw.ca/ niQ

    Doesn’t hurt that he also won Defensive Player of the Year in the 06-07 season!

  • Jason Staley

    My all time favorite Denver Nugget, even though he was only there four years, is Nick Van Exel. He had some amazing years in Denver and I feel he is one of the most underrated guards of all time. He could score with the best of them and his court vision was ridiculous.

  • http://slamonline.com KJ

    Definitely David Thompson. He is the most underrated superstar in the past 40 years. One of the most prolific scorers in the late 70′s/early 80′s. He was the Jordan before Jordan. He competed against Doctor J as the most polarizing basketball star before he physical issues. He was a crowd pleaser, brought people off their seats and gave a new breath to basketball post NBA/ABA merger. One of my favorite Nuggets and players in general.

  • Ryan Bound

    Chauncey Billups – he’s Denver through and through..
    Loyalty is something rarely seen in today’s game but if it was down to Billups, I bet he would never have left.
    Every time I saw him play in a different jersey, I imagined it was Denver and I bet he did too.

  • Brock

    my favorite Nugget is probably Dikembe Mutombo because he did such an amazing job on the court blocking shots and grabbing the boards at will. He also did an amazing job on and off the courts doing lots of humanitarian work and just being one of the few sports people that you could truly look up to. Much props to Dikembe Mutombo.

  • http://slamonline.com KJ

  • Mujeeb Ahmed

    My favorite Nugget of all time is Chauncey Billups. Even though he was only in Denver for a few seasons, he fit perfectly in Denver with a great basketball mind like George Karl. Chauncey always brought his A game & ALWAYS hit those BIG shots when needed…That’s why my favorite Nuggest of all time, is Mr. Big Shot..Chauncey Billups!

  • Curtis

    My all time favorite Nugget is coach George Karl. I’m a Sonics fan so I may be partial to Karl since he coached in Seattle but he has done great things in Denver to turn around the organization. If I had to choose a player, it would be Alex English because he is a hall of famer and who I think of when you mention the Nuggets.

  • Chris Charleston

    When you think Denver Nuggets, you think..tough,defense,strong. One player defines that in Nuggets history more and any other one. MARCUS CAMBY. We’re talking about a guy who led the NBA in blocks and BPG 3 times each with Denver. 8th all time in BPG in NBA HISTORY!!! 4 time nba all defense team! I mean what other nugget got you that! DPOY. HANDS DOWN! Has to be The Camby Man! Go Nuggets!

  • Amin

    Dikembe ” Finger Waggle” Mutombo. All-star as a rookie. First year numbers over 16 points, 12 boards and 3! blocks per game. There will never be another guy who has done more on and off the court of basketball!

  • Saku 39

    Mutombo. I’m a Georgetown fan so I followed his career in Denver. I collected whatever basketball cards I could find, had his jersey, and had a t-shirt that listed his full name on the back (Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo).

  • http://urban-transition.com Trey Williams

    Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf is the greatest Nugget of all time. Lead the lead in free throw shooting in two of his seasons. Was always a solid guard in his short career. Also came one short short of the all-time free throw percentage record in a single season, losing to Calvin Murphy I believe. One of the most solid guards of his time.

  • Michael P.

    Hands down the best Nugget is “The Skywalker”. For goodness sake he presented Michael Jordan for inductioninto the Hall of Fame. For those who are old enough to remeber or fancy themselves as basketball connoisseurs, he was simply amazing. He was like the west coast Dr. J. He may not have completely dominated the Franchises record books but undoubtedly he did work! The fro the socks the rim rockers, the sheer ability to get to the basket, simply amazing!

  • fraser

    Are you kidding me…! Dikembe Mutombo rains over all others no question. When Mutombo and Hakeem “the dream” Olajuwon went at it back in the day. The two best centers of their time one offensive specialist and one a defensive machine!

  • Jer Boi

    My all Time favorite Nugget has to be Carmelo Anthony. He isn’t there anymore, and I know he left a bad taste in some fans mouth, but he did a lot for the Nuggets. They never missed the playoffs after he was drafted, got the Nuggets to the Conference Finals once and could have won if not for some mistakes by other down the stretch. He gave the Nuggets a winning mentality coming to the NBA after winning a National Title. He changed the Nuggets around, and even when he left the Nuggets got 5 solid players back including Gallo, who can eventually be that star Denver needs. This Nuggets team was good while he was here and now they’re set for the future, and it’s largely in part to Carmelo.

    I’d like to take a moment to nominate Bison Dele, Rodney Rogers, Bryant Stith, Priest Lauderdale and Anthony Goldwire. Ok, back to your regularly scheduled commenting.

  • Flud

    Fat Lever. Great game to go with a great name.

  • Mikey Aulakh

    Dikembe Mutombo because he really brought defense to the nugget, he really gave the nuggets the defensive mind set that they needed plus brought the finger wag to the nba which some big men today try and swagger jack from him but they just can’t do it like Dikembe

  • Ryan.T

    I would have to say Earl Boykins was my favorite Nugget of all time. He’s actually one of my favorite players of all time. He represents for all the little guys world wide. To see him succeed on the biggest stage of basketball is awesome. I used to get so excited when he entered the game, he was a game changer.. Not only with his speed, but he was a really good scorer for his size as well. I watched in amazement as he’d shoot fade away jumpers over taller defenders. His success on the hardwood is also a testament to the hard work he put in, off the court. We’re talking about the lightest & shortest guy in the league, benching more than 300 lbs. Which made him the strongest player in the league, Pound for Pound. And to see him team with Allen Iverson those last few weeks before he was traded was some of the funnest basketball to watch at that time. They were both too fast and explosive & seemingly scored at will…

    what? danilo wears adidas now…

  • jpm34

    Alex English. Those Nuggets teams with English, Kiki V. and Walt Davis running Doug Moe’s break neck tempo game was true blast to watch. Mutombos Nug’s beating the top seed Sonics was incredible too.

  • grandmama

    my all time favorite nugget would be earl smith the III cuz his mind is absurd…explosive, jumpy as a cat with him entertainment was never whack :D

  • Maxwell Machcinski

    Who is my favorite Nugget of all-time? I’d have to say Earl Smith III (AKA J.R. Smith). I know he was only a Nugget for roughly 5 seasons but he brought so much excitement to the team. This guy earned the nickname “instant offense” for being such an explosive player off the bench. He is arguably both a top 5 dunker and top 5 three point shooter in the league. Did you know that he has made at least 7 three pointers in a game 15 times in his career? Yes i know, I keep track of that stuff lol. And almost all of those games occured when he was a Nugget. The guy is a flat out scorer. I loved watchin him in the powder blue as he would convert crazy dunks night after night. Such as that crazy 360 alley oop vs. Minnesota or that dunk on Gary Neal of the Spurs. This guy definitely was my favorite Nugget.

  • Lukas U.

    My favorite Nugget of all time is Andre Miller. I think his game is way too underrated. He is one of the best passers and his alley-oop passes are probably the best in the league. He also has a really great midrange game and I love his style of playing the game.

  • http://slamonline.com tealish

    It has to be Allen Iverson, even if it was a short stint. The last year he was relevant, and the year I could turn to my friends and say “i told you so” when he coexisted beautifully with another superstar for the first time in his career. A shame it didn’t continue.

  • http://N/A J DOGG

    Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (Chris Jackson). Not a popular pick becuase of the national Anthem depacle, I know. But along with Shaq at LSU, then Dikembe in Denver, the man could have had it all. We all can make dumb/stupid mistakes and Mahmoud reminds me that we can still make good choices and do something great despite our past. In 93/24 he went 219-229 from the line for a 95.6 percentage! Now that’s great!

  • Ryan

    Kiki Vandeweghe anyone?

  • Ryan Dame

    Favorite nugget of all time is “sky walker” aka David Thompson. Not only one of the best nuggets of all time but one of the best players in all of the nba and a great role model. A lot of today’s star players could benefit from taking a page out of his book……Lebron and Dwight cough cough

    anthony goldwire, that’s digging deep

    vincent yarbrough whaaaat

  • Damion Magnuson

    It used to be Melo until he moved but now its gotta be Arron Afflalo, I’ve kept an eye on him since he hit that game winner against Alabama, and brought UCLA to the final four. he’s definitely got some more developing to do. but he’s a future all-star for sure!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVFSfRVzQ8s nbk

    LaPhonso Ellis. First because his jumper was absolutely beautiful. Second because that dude played hard every minute he was on the court. Third because he was an underrated athlete, would dunk on people and just stair them down. And Lastly, because of the monster block you can see by clicking my name. I mean, that block may be one of the top 5 ever. It’s absolutely amazing, I think of it every time I see a big block at the rim. LaPhonso just caught a dunk! Oh my. Even if I don’t win, everyone who reads this comment should watch that block.

  • Pic

    Robert Pack. Remember that run against the Sonics in 94 when he crammed one down on Shawn Kemp, slaying the greent giant? That play officially swung the momentum the Nuggets way, carrying them to #1 vs. #8 seed upset. I’ve been a fan of him since, like now I’m a fan of Eric Bledsoe. Who spends time with Bled every day working on his game? Clippers Assistant Coach Robert Pack.

  • 6Goat

    Favourite Nugget of all time is Antonio McDyess. Had his best years as a Nugget and played with so much power. He dunked so hard and was so smooth (Kemp-esque). Loved the years with Dice, VanExel, Kevin Willis and James Posey, thought they were the team of the future (Raef LaFrentz was there too). Wish they would have stayed together.

  • boweezy24

    Just Pick Me For The Winner :) I Need Some Kicks. Haa!

  • Khadar

    My all time favorite nugget player is galinari, because hes from europe like i am.

  • Nick

    My all time favourite Denver Nugget? EASY!

    NICK VAN EXEL!

    First off, he got my same name and not many good players who played in the NBA were named Nick. Gotta love and root someone who plays in the L with ur same name, even if he sucks! I’m from Italy and i grew up with that guy! I remember myself wakin up in the morning at 3 am to see the Nuggets on TV and rooting for Nick the Quick. Those 4 years in Colorado were such great years for him, especially that 2001 season. He might not have been one of the greatest to ever wear a Nuggets shirt but damn, he knew how to step into that court and he definitely knew how to excite me everytime. Definitely my pick!

    PS: Being from Italy u should know Gallo is my hero. Just saying.

  • UncleKev

    Nick van exel…tremendous amount of swag and irrational confidence. He put that team on his back during some of their darkest years.

  • RickyRude

    My pick would be Fat Lever. With no disrespect to Chauncey Billups who’s also one of my all-time favorite point guards that played for Denver, Fat Lever is your modern-day Rajon Rondo, a 6’3 do-it-all PG. He averaged close to a triple-double in the 1988-89 season (19.8 ppg, 9.3 rpg, 7.9 apg). On January 7th, 1987 in a losing effort against the Chicago Bulls (96-100) Lever had the amazing stat-line of 31 points, 16 rebounds, 12 assists, six steals and a block, and that’s why he’s my pick for this contest.

    il mio giocatore preferito è Danilo Gallinari himself! I know he’s only been here for a season and a half but he’s already become my favorite. He can draw fouls, swish a mid ranger and step back for a 3ball. He’s also a playmaker and he’s one reason why the Nuggets have had a winning record. Also do you guys remember that clutch fade away 3 he scored vs Atlanta? And did you know his best friend is Ronny Turiaf and Nene? cose interessanti eh?

  • SR

    I’d have to say George Karl. Throughout the cancer, the melodrama, & half of the team going to China, he keeps them being a playoff team. Everybody thought it was over for the nuggets when Mell left, he kept them together.

  • bks_sizzle

    My All-Time Favorite Denver Nugget was David Thompson. Simple, the man really could fly…

  • SBS

    Allen Iverson because he didn’t have an issue with ‘practice’

  • J Blackburn

    Byron Beck is my favorite Denver Nugget of all time. Yes he was before my time but he went to a local high school and I have met him through friends of mine and he is a really nice guy and was a great player in his time. The first player to have his jersey retired by the Denver organization and one of six players to play all nine seasons with the ABA Denver Rockets which became the Nuggets who he played a season for in the NBA.

  • c_newell

    Danillo Gallinari because when he is fully healthy hes the best player on the Nuggets and hes whats gonna get them a first round upset!
    Gallo > Melo for the Nuggets or the Knicks, and hes been down with reebok ever since he came in

  • Wes

    Raef LaFrentz! Such a smooth shooting big man who had his most successful seasons as a Nugget. Went on to be the first player to capture 200 blocked shots and 150 3-pointers in a season. Also, former Jayhawk on a team full of amazing talent including Paul Pierce.

  • Fresh Boirdee

    These are not the Zig Encore’s, they look more like the Zig Pro Future…all Reebok’s basketball shoes look exactly the same. Also, Gallo has been adidas this season.

  • Rob

    Robert Pacman Pack. IN YA FACE, BABY!

  • abaci

    Dikembe Mutombo. He is clearly a great guy off the court with all the charity work he does. He had an awesome career, and with his voice and sense of humor he is a character to boot. Ya know the clip they show all the time of the 8th seeded Nuggets beating my 1st seeded Sonics, the one where Dikembe is on the floor celebrating with the ball over his head? The fact that Dikembe is such a good guy makes it .0000001 more tolerable every time I see it.

  • Marcus

    Eight straight 2,000 point seasons,over 25,000 career points. That #2 jersey everyone rocked as a throwback.Long before Carmelo was leading the team in scoring, there was Alex English. Was there ever any doubt?

  • John Lewis

    My Favorite Denver Nugget of all time has to be Dikembe Mutombo Because of The Great Defense he played and his low post scoring ability

  • Calum McGloin

    Gallo hands down! Firstly I am from europe and it is great to see Danilo representing us, he is in his 4th season in the league and one of the most versatile players in the league, at 6 ft 10 he is the size of a forward but can play like a guard with great handling ability and speed making him a machine getting to the basket. He is definately a future all star and one of the most dominant players in the league. :)

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    I have to say Allen Iverson. I know that his legacy lies with the Sixers, as well it should, but AI still suited up for Denver. Easily one of the most breathtaking players to ever play in the league, his handles were sick, his jumpshot was wet and his defense was quick. When people talk about Iverson in the future, they probably won’t even mention that he played for the Nuggets. Hell, they probably won’t even remember. But Iverson’s presence in the league was felt over his whole career, and he’s still my favorite player to ever put on a Nuggets uniform.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    Also, to add on to my last post: Forget Hov, Iverson invented swag.

  • logues

    my favorite would have to be robert pack. dude was little but had insane hops and had some really impressive dunks ON big guys

  • Aamir K.

    My Favorite Nugget of all time is Dan Issel. He was a great college player at Kentucky, and averaged 25.7 PPG, a school record. Issel has almost 28,000 career points, and as a rookie was an All-Star and averaged 30 PPG and 13 RPG, and was only ALl-ABA Second Team?He was an ABA All-Star Game MVP his 2nd year, where he averaged 30.6 PPG. This is also more impressive because he was undersized, and generously listed at 6 ft 9 inches. And, he was a great coach, leading the Nuggets to the first ever 1-8 seed upset, beating the Sonics in 5 games. AND he was a great guy off the court, and won the Walter J. Kennedy Citizenship award. He and Artis Gilmore led the Kentucky Colonels, his team from 1970-75 to an ABA Championship. Alos, during the twilight of his career, 5 out of his last 8, he averaged over 20 PPG. Enough Said.

  • Tyler Murphy

    Alex English. Alex has played in the most games of any player in Nuggets history with 837 games. It is next to impossible to look at a Nuggets player career leader board without seeing the name Alex English in the top ten. Alex was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame in 1997.
    He was dedicaded to the nuggets and only the nuggets.

    Mutumbo he played with so much passion and gave 100% effort everytime he stepped on the court. He might not have been the most talented player on the floor each night but he sure was one of the best. Mutumbo was the best all around team player there ever was, he always focused on what he did best.

  • Zabbah

    Carmelo Anthony. I know a lot of people will be rolling their eyes when I say this but I see a little bit of Larry Bird inside Melo. I’m talking about when it’s the fourth quarter, two minutes to go and your team’s down by five, both men have this fearless look in their eyes, an almost arrogant and aggressive insistence that the ball should be in their hands. And you can’t argue with that. You give them the ball and you watch someone go to work crunch time. That’s where the two meet.
    Unfortunately he doesn’t have Bird’s titles, defense or even court vision. And maybe that’s why he bolted to New York, so he could find players that could do those things for him. Whatever. I know he hit as many game winners, or close to as many, than Kobe Bryant did during his tenure as a Nugget. That’s a lot of wild finishes and something to remember and cherish.

    Since the shoes are from a euro player it is only fitting that I give a shout out to my fav nugget — Saurunis Marciulionis!
    One of the first Euros to pave the way for others who ended his NBA Career in 97″ with the Nuggets.

    Check out this blurb about Sarunus:

    In the aftermath of the 1989 San Francisco earthquake, Marčiulionis appeared at the site of a commuter train accident wearing his Warriors warm up outfit and helped by pulling out trapped passengers and administering first aid.

  • STR8jckn

    Id definitely go with Antonio Mcdyess, he was killin’ it on the highlights when the nuggs had them sexy a$$ navy and gold Uni’s. They were a horrible team back then, but never looked as bad as the BetCats and JaVale Mcgee somehow simultaneously do. jaetha1@hotmail.com

  • Kevin

    Who else but the Carmelo Anthony who helped resurrect the Nuggets in his rookie season. Lebron couldn’t even help the Cavs enter the play-offs his first year and he had Big Z and Boozer. Carmelo does not have the best defense in the NBA but the fact that he has an offensive weapon is a huge plus and besides if he can’t defend as well that is why they have a team. Sure he was not happy with Nuggets organization after a couple years before he got traded but that is only because the organization did not do a great job getting the team past the first round from 03-04 season to 08-09 season afterwards they struggled to get past the first round once again after the 08-09 season. Definitely deserves to get his number retired regardless of him asking to be traded. By far the most underrated player in the NBA during his tenure with the Nuggets

    Good Looks!

  • Noah O

    Dikembe Mutombo for the defensive awesomeness and the classic voice/finger wag

  • Blue

    hmmmmmm probably andre miller. was stoked when we traded for him in the offseason. just a really durable, tough and smart point guard that makes players around him better. Truly one of the most underated point guards of the last decade

  • MDubb3

    They is some many people respectively to choose but being biased I guess,Carmelo Anthony. He brought everything he had to this organization and without a doubt he could have been more successful in Denver but that’s life. I chose Carmelo because of that swagger he brought to the court whether is was a head to head match up against Lebron or his clutch shots down the stretch. When I was younger, I had a printed Carmelo Anthony jersey,and as it got washed, the jersey faded but my faith in the Nuggets and Carmelo to the day the jersey was no longer there. Carmelo’s best career play imo was his 33 points in a quarter hands down. Im pretty sure you guys are familiar with Carmelo Anthony but yeah, he’s my favorite player. No Doubt. hit me up at mohamedwarsame@ymail.com Take Care

  • CL

    Has to be Melo for me. Very clutch player and, one of the best all around scorers the league has ever seen. One of the first NBA games I ever went to, was the nuggets vs the pacers and believe it or not Melo hit a buzzer beater to win the game. Even after the ‘melodrama’ I’m still a huge denver fan and watch them whenever I can.

  • Adam Thompson

    Ty Lawson is my favourite nugget because he isn’t the biggest player out there but he plays with a lot of heart and spirit and has quick feet and great hands which compliment these attributes and makes him a deadly scorer and the greatest nugget to date.
    Adam-2.11@hotmail.com

  • James

    Dikembe “Mount” Mutombo. The finger wave. ‘Nuff said.

  • Brett

    Honestly, my favorite Nuggets player is Gallo. It started in New York – there is just something awesome about the way he plays basketball. May his team oriented, awkward drives and even more awkward post game interviews where he makes strange faces as he leans down to hear the shorter interviewer continue for many years.

  • rob stewart

    ALL Time favorite Nugget is Jimmie King!!! I know he only played two games for them but numbers aren’t always everything. He was my favorite Fab Five member and he spent a little time in Toronto. But his last games in the NBA and national basketball radar were with the Denver Nuggets.

  • Bob Baby

    Gotta say Tim Hardaway. He lost his mind in Denver!!! Dude threw a tv!! Thats right he threw a television screen on the court during a game and got suspended two games. That’s something to remember

  • Buujangles

    ALL about Andre Miller. No non sense point guard who get’s the job done. H averaged high assist totals and would make the timely j. He is also one of the most durable players in league history. Night in night out he does his job.

  • http://www.slamonline.com/online/the-magazine/contests/2011/08/contest-aphillyated-apparel/#7 Naman

    My favorite Nuggets player of all time is Alex English. I am too young to actually see him play but I have watched a ton of highlights of him on Youtube and ESPN Classic. He has an insanely smooth jump shoot and it always looked like it was going to go in. He was a scoring machine, I mean the guy was the all time leader in points during the 80′s. I can’t imagine playing now I think he would dominate like he did back in the day.

  • lemskiz

    my fave nugget will probably be allen iverson because his face is in the background of the picture, he is a lifetime endorser of reebok, i love reeboks for life and i want to win that pair of free shoes. reebok for life. reebok better than nike. reebok better than adidas…….now gimme that pair of kicks.

  • SnapKickkz

    Reebok is awesome has a lot of good palyers

  • al jordan

    My favorite Denver Nugget player of all time would have to be Chauncey Billups. There was nothing like when he was traded from the pistons for Iverson, to the Nuggets. He got so much love.

    But, on the court, he took a Detroit Pistons team who won the championship, then lost to the spurs in the championship.. then lost in the conference finals three times.. got traded, and kept getting to the end.. he took the Denver Nuggets to the western conference finals. He is such a leader.

    I know he is hurt right now, but even on the sidelines, he’s a leader on the Clippers. I wish he could have ended his career as a Nugget.

  • Kenny

    My favorite Denver Nugget has to be the knucklehead – JR Smith. It doesn’t matter that he has done some dumb things in his career. On any given night, you just didn’t know if he was going to go off or play like trash. That’s why I loved him, he gave you suspense. You would watch and at the end of the game, he would have had 30 points or 0 points, while playing 3 minutes. He was inconsistent but we all knew he had all the talent in the world. If he was able to get rid of that personality, he could’ve been the superstar for the Nuggets. It never happened and now he’s on the Knicks. Good luck to him on the Knicks however.

  • Todd

    Not the best Nugget ever or the most memorable but my all time fav…Darvin Ham…97 dunk contest nuff said. The man completed all of his first round dunks and all on the first attempt (wow what a novel concept), but then gets robbed and doesnt go on. travesty. Darvin most def went Ham that night.

  • jpm34

    Raef LaFrentz, just cuz he was a former Jayhawk. Defensive monster.

  • DaniloGallinari’s#1Fan

    My favorite Nugget of all time is Danilo Gallinari. Gallinari’s shot is redonkulous and I have a chance to win a pair of his shoes. Go Gallinari!

  • LTU

    My “fave nugget” in DENVER of all time – the Lithuanian national pride – Sarunas Marciulionis, the first player stepped on the courts of NBA from the former Soviet Union (USSR). Although that was his last season in NBA (96-97) and not the greatest numbers in all the categories – he is to be remembered for his work ethic, a passion on the court, slashes to the rack and unselfish play. Of course, he shined through at GSW and later with SAC years before, but still that season with DEN he contributed 110% and was productive for the team night in and night out. A great player, ranked among 50 FIBAs all time greatest, the Olympic gold and bronze (twice) medalist, Eurobasket MVP (1995)and etc., etc., who was fun to watch on the courts all over the world’s biggest competitions. Love to death.

    He was already a first ballot Hall of Famer when arrived in the winter of 2006, I was hyped. But I found out truly just how good he is when I saw him play for my Nuggets every night for 2 seasons,32 years old but blazing quick, diving for loose balls and busting his ass on every play, he was still unguardable. His career didn’t finish the way he and his fans wanted to, his last dominant season was for my Nuggets…true fans know how great he was but some have forgot. On a dysfunctional, “shoot first” Nuggets team he stood out his passion, his will to win, his play till the buzzer attitude is the reason I will never forget him and cant say a bad thing about Reebok’s main man one of the greatest ever Allen Iverson!

  • Baron 3:16

    Easy? Carmelo Anthony. Straight out of Syracuse a scoring machine, a superstar who gave us hope, who gave us a reason to buy a Nuggets jersey he took us to the playoffs right away and did so for many years. Yeah things didn’t work out here and he left us but he was a once in a lifetime player who could take the game over, he brought excitement to the city and I miss him. Yes, we do have a TEAM now but we don’t have a franchise player, and Melo was a franchise player who in the right situation could be a championship player. I don’t know when we will have a star like him who averages 25 PPG as a Nugget, gives us game winners, 50 point games and the hope that we could beat any team on any night. I still have his first ever SLAM cover framed I hope he wins a title in New York.

  • Nathaniel Dedman

    My favourite nugget of all time is chauncey billups, now i know he hardly spent any time in denver but he is the only denver nugget to have won the NBA sportsmanship award, and thats what basketball is about. Forget the max contracts, shoe deals, endorsements and glits and glam, the game was designed to be fun, it was designed to be pure and bring people together and sportmanship in my opinion is one of the, if not the best quality to have!

    Chauncey billups- great leader, home town kid, turned man. Great in the community. Was sad to see him go :(

  • BostonBaller

    TCrook@Parksideca.org I was going to go with one of my fav high flyers DT and his scissor dunks et al but then I decided to go with my complete favorite Golden Nugget: Alex English!! Where do I start? Hmmm, the smooth yet awkward jumper, the unorthodox but virtually unstoppable drives to the bucket. Perhaps the crazy FT’s? He was scarily consistent and had a 26 ppg as a Nugget during his decade long tenure there. In 10 of his 11 seasons with the Nuggets (1979-90), English averaged better than 21 points per game. In eight of those 11 years, he scored more than 25 points per game. He got buckets during a time when you could get slayed going to the hole and he lead the L in scoring one year w/ 28 or 29 a game. I believe he still ranks in the top 10 on the NBA’s all time scoring list. Instead of bore you w/ more outstanding hoop talk and all star births I’ll let you know that even though he was soft spoken and a model citizen he was a major influence on his fellow league players. (Dude got the ASG players to give up their cash for a charity on year. lol) My man has published 2 poetry books and was in a movie way before it became popular to do so. (Amazing Grace and Chuck) PEACE my Family

  • BostonBaller

    All due respect to a few players I really liked: Dan Is, Kiki V & Marcus C. Hey young blood Naman Posted: Apr.11 at 10:52 pm…Youtube doesn’t scratch the surface of his game. There were some tough ballers during his time and only because the 80′s had so many LEGIT all stars did he not make 1st team All NBA every year. ASG’s yes…HOF yes…

  • BostonBaller

    What do you wear with these? lol. If I were to walk into school with these on, my students & players would fall out then ask if they could have them. lol.

  • Dingo Rob

    Let me tell you about a guy you may never heard of…one goofy looking white guy and looked like someone you might see in a pub rather than the hard court. He accumulated over 27,000 points in his combined ABA and NBA career, trailing only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain and Julius Erving upon his retirement. He currently ranks #9 on the all time combined ABA/NBA. He represented Nuggets in an All Star game in the 70s and averaged over 20 points per game most of his career as a Nugget. He also had a stint coaching the Nuggets twice and led them in the playoffs when he coached one of the biggest upsets in NBA playoff history when the 8 seed took out top seed Sonics, who had a couple of handy players back then. This is the early 90s the same time he was inducted into the HOF..Not this relates to Nuggets But worth a mention he also averaged 25 plus playing for Kentucky and Im sure hat is still the record…oh and was GM for the Nuggets and won a citizen award…all round winner.

    His name is Dan Issel

  • hugo

    Dikembe Mutombo, hands down. Brilliantly anchored the defense for a very good playoff team that resulted in one of the greatest nba first-round upsets, truly played the game the right way, signatured the not-in-my-house finger waving (no techs), has a baritone that could have made him mad cash in the cartoon industry, selflessly engages in a whole lot of ‘real’ off-court charity work and last but surely not least; hes the only player whose age has remained unknown throughout his career. Your argument is invalid

  • Ken

    As a short player and a point guard, I’m going to go with Michael Adams. Dude averaged 20/10 and was shorter than AI. When I was a kid and he dropped 54 points…a dude that short doing that in an NBA game? The crazy uniforms just made it that much cooler.

    My favorite Nuggets moment still is seeing Mutombo crying with joy on the floor after upsetting the #1 Sonics, but for a player I have to go with Michael Adams.

  • Weasel

    for some reason i’ve only seen like two people say ALEX ENGLISH. the most underrated player in NBA history Easily my Favorite Nugget, could teach Melo some thinks about work ethic and loyalty. GALLO WOULD BE MY SECOND FAVORITE.

  • shakatheworld

    dikembe mutombo. his defensive tenacity and his play on the road to upset the sonics in ’94 (30+ blocks in 5 games?!) make him pretty legendary. add that to the finger wag and his humanitarian efforts off the court and he’s my favorite nugget ever.

  • blizzardman

    Chris “The Birdman” Andersen!! Because he’s all about the defense. Plus he has got lots of sweet tats (try dressing up as him for Halloween next year). He has a decent nickname too, I guess. Haters gonna hate, but the Birdman is my favorite Nugget.

  • TK

    Few NBA fans remember Dan Issel, he was probably my favorite Nugget.
    Most may remember Issel from his coaching days for the Nuggets. Not many people realize that he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1993.
    A fantastic post player, Issel had career averages of 22.6 points and 9.1 rebounds before retiring.

    Earl Boykins. proved that little guys can ball in the L.

  • http://slamonline.com Billy Sunday

    What people don’t really know about the nuggets they had PG’s for days over the years since the 80s. guards like fat lever, mahmoud abdul-rauf, avery johnson, robert pack, mark jackson, chauncey billups, nick van exel, tim hardaway, earl boykins, andre miller, allen iverson. you can’t forget about michael adams who was the last player to average 25 plus points with 10 plus assists a game finished with something like 26 and 10. you can’t forget the high school star who busted out the league kenny satterfield. or about the smale guards like eddie hughes and more commonly known from kansas adonis jordan.

    Out of all these guards my favorite is greg grant. i love his story on how he grew up from a broken home in the hood in trenton and after high school he worked at a fish market. his talents were discovered from street ball games and went on to play at d3 school where he was drafted out of which is crazy. the craziest part of this all is the fact that he is only 5’7″ weighing only 140. he only played 6 seasons and hardly suited up the nuggets its just an inspiring, hidden story that people should know about

  • chau-jay

    I must tip my hat off to Alex English. One of the NBA greats of all-time, plus a ’97 nod to the Basketball Hall of Fame. You can see the passion in his game when he played during his time, such an unstoppable force. It’s nice to see him these days continuing his basketball journey as an assistant coach. Players of today should be honoured!

  • lemskiz

    is iverson paid for this plug in? a few dollars would surely help him ryt now

  • JB

    Fat Lever! Defense, defense, defense…on a team that didn’t try to play defense. With Kiki Vandeweghe and Alex English, Denver would try to outscore you. Fat took some pride in defending. He was the catalyst.

    David Thompson 1975 – 1982

    - Hall of Fame
    - jersey number (33) retired by Denver
    - NBA leader in free throws attempted in 1976/77
    - one-time ABA All-Star
    - three-time NBA All-Star
    - ABA Rookie of the Year
    - one-time All-ABA Team
    - two-time All-NBA Team
    might have even missed some

    “David Thompson was Michael Jordan’s role model. For a player to have that status, he’s no doubt a phenomenal player. Possessing absolutely amazing leaping ability, “Skywalker” Thompson used the alley-oop as one of the mainstays of his offensive array. In his rookie season, Thompson won Rookie of the Year and took the Nuggets to their one and only (ABA) Finals. Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1996, David Thompson is probably best remembered for his 73 point game in the last game of the ’77-78 season.”

    “Michael Jordan chose him to be the one to bring him into the Hall. Says it all for me.”

    “Thompson was the young Jordan before Jordan played basketball. He averaged 22.7 points per game in his career and 24.1 points per game in seven years in Denver. Thompson was the first real crossover star (even though he does not get the same legendary memory given to Dr. J). IF THOMPSON HAD NOT FELL TO A HORRIBLE KNEE INJURY, HIS CAREER MIGHT HAVE BEEN MORE LENDGENDARY” (THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN PRETTY AMAZING)

  • tony scorpio

    Robert Pack. Kemped shawn kemp in classic avia. Nuff said.

  • javier

    As he walks into the arena, the tattoos start to eat his skin revealing the feathers underneath. The gel on his hair reflects the kids’ smiles on the crowd. As he flies to block a shot, his opponents can only smell the odor of embarrassment floating thru the air. His fellow teammates wonder how a simple canvas transforms itself into a human piece of art that transmits emotions and feelings every night. Who is the artist behind this piece of colorful athletism. The last time I watched Andersen play, I turned to my wife and said “You are beautiful”. She turned around and threw the remote at my face. She knew!!

  • sean luddy

    My favorite is Marcus camby he never gives up & always holds it down.also they don’t give him enough props.also bird man his engery is crazy & accepts his part

  • fernandogarcia

    Birdman- simply because my kids are always yelling and complaining for me to let them watch their TV shows, yet whenever their is a Nuggets game on TV they seem to to distracted and amazed by the colors on Birdman, so i get to relax and watch the greatest professional sport around, the NBA

  • Ethan Vlahov

    My favourite player of all time is “The manimal” Kenneth faried. The amazing intensity he brings to the game is amazing. He goes amazingly hard to the ball and can get up so high almost too high! GO NUGGETS

  • http://www.ballerspinas.com Val Marvin Macanas

    My Favorite Nugget is Chauncey Billups because he is intelligent and he can score at will. I will never forget his impact during the 2008-2011 NBA Season stretch with the Nuggets. 50 plus wins, all time 3 pointers made in a single playoff game for the Nuggets, and countless of game winning shots. He is really a team player and a leader at that!!!

  • sideburn2go

    J.R. Smith man… dude does not get enough respect for his game and he never got the playing time he deserved but he has always been my favorite player to watch. He can score at will from any place on his side of half court and he can do it in so many ways. Dropping bombs from outside, hitting the midrange, or driving hard to the hole. Plus you gotta love those posterizing dunks he was capable of putting up (he has had some of the sickest dunks of the last 5 years).

  • al jordan

    I would also have to say that my all-time favorite Denver Nugget is George Karl. George Karl has been a great coach, working with a young Camelo Anthony, young J.R. Smith, Kenyon Martin, Birdman, Allen Iverson, Chauncey, he has worked with some good guys,and taught them a lot.

    George Karl has gone through a lot, but does not let his personal trials keep him from achieving and his commitment to his team. He is a favorite all time Denver Nugget.

  • http://me_losh50@yahoo.com Milos Sotirovic

    Has to be Dikembe Mutombo…I will never forget the first round playoff series in 1994. The Sonics had just posted a franchise-record 63 victories, while the Nuggets had slipped into the playoffs with a ho-hum 42-40 record. Besides, no No. 8 seed had ever beaten a No. 1 seed since the NBA adopted its current playoff format in 1984.

    Mutombo dominated the lane defensively throughout the series. The Nuggets were able to beat Seattle 98-94 in overtime. And my favorite Nuggets moment of all-time happened when the final buzzer sounded…Mutombo grabbed the last rebound and fell to the floor, a look of sheer joy on his face as his teammates piled upon him in celebration. Priceless.

    No. 8 had beaten No. 1., and even though the Nuggets lost to Utah in seven games in the next round, they had carved their place in history! Go Nuggets!

  • JENNIFER JOHNSON

    MY FAVORITE NUGGETS PLAYER OF ALL TIME IN DIKEMBE MUTOMBO BC OF HIS WORK OFF THE PAINT AND IN THE WORLD!

  • John Z

    Dikembe Mutombo. A man that that speaks volumes on and off the court without saying a word. Off the court, he’s a genuine person showing off his big smile when he’s doing charity work all over the world. On the court, he’s a monstrous defender by blocking the shots of his opponents and showing off the iconic finger wave.

  • Matthew

    I would have to say my favourite player of all time would be David Thompson. I have to point out that he was a three time all star player and now in hall of fame and unreal at free throw shooting that just shows how great of a player he once was. But its not just that….. he had such a explosive jump which made him a really tough defender to go by and a incredible offensive player, can’t forget about his 73 point game! He was also Michael Jordan’s role model and love the number 33.

  • Ben Weiner

    my favorite nugget of all time is chauncey billups. I know he bounced around a lot , but i love how he can be so good and do it every where he goes, boston , toronto , minnesota , denver , LA . it’s just amazing how he can still be chauncey billups at every spot. no matter where he goes , mr.big shot always comes through

  • mike

    D. Mutumbo, winning a nuggets championship as the 8th seed

  • J Blackburn

    When is the winner(s) going to be announced?

  • sahil

    Alex English has to be the best because he led the Nuggets to 9 straight playoff appearances, is the all time scorer in denver’s history, and is one of the most prolific scorers in history. Plus, he was put into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1997!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=718540612 Sean McIntee

    Chauncey Billups is my favorite Denver Nugget of all time, he is a living symbol of denver. A Denver high school and Colorado University student as well as two stints with the Nuggets is proof he is a son of Denver. With a great second time in Denver leading the team to the conference finals in 09 he brought leadership, a great attitude and reliable, clutch play in every game making those around him better on and off the court. Best wishes to him on his current injury because I know he’ll be a key part in the Clippers playoff run next year. Hopefully he’ll come back to be a part of the Nuggets franchise as part of the coaching staff because Denver always will have a place for CB.

    As a massive Nuggets fan since 2005 it would be great to win shoes of one of my favorite players on the current roster!

  • Broderick

    My favourite Nugget of all time is Dikembe Mutumbo because he is one of the best defensive players the world has ever seen and one of the best international players to ever play in the NBA.
