An overall mediocre team, The Denver Nuggets have not had the most success. Instead, they’ve settled for an overall average play, with a decent lineup each year. Out of their 52 seasons as an organization, they’ve made 33 playoff appearances, 24 with the NBA and 9 with the ABA. But, even though they are more middle of the pack, not that they haven’t had some amazing players come to their bench.
David Thompson, SG/SF (95)
Traits: One of a Kind

Although he only played for seven years, David Thompson was undoubtedly one of the greats. During his 7 seasons with the Nuggets, Thompson was able to score 24.1 point son average through his 498 games, as well as hold 1.1 steals per game, while still having 3.4 assists per game and 4.3 rebounds per game.
Carmelo Anthony, SF/PF (94)

Fat Lever, PG/SG (90)

During his six years with the Nuggets, he was able to secure 17.0 points per game, as well as a strong 2.5 steals per game and 7.5 assists per game. This made him very different from his namesake, as he was one of the faster players on the court.
Alex English, SF/PF (93)
Traits: Offensive Superstar

Alex English definitely had some strong qualities, as he was inducted into the Hall of fame after his career ended.
