The up-and-coming Nuggets are returning with a new look next season.
Denver has been hinting their new look would drop soon, and it did Wednesday night (during an NBA Finals game, but if that’s what you want…). First, the logo got updated.
Then there is the new look, evolved uniforms — which are clean and modern. I like the look.
“Our franchise has a rich history containing numerous logo and color designs throughout our incredible 50-year story in Denver…“ said Josh Kroenke, Vice Chairman of Kroenke Sports & Entertainment (owner of the Nuggets), in a statement. “The Denver Nuggets have always welcomed change and are continually looking for ways to innovate as shown by our evolution from the ABA’s Denver Rockets, to Maxie the Miner, the iconic Rainbow Skyline, and on to the Mountain Peak and Pickaxe. Each era of Nuggets basketball has its own distinct look and feel, and our amazing fans should know that this latest progression aims to celebrate our unique history while turning the page to represent the current and future era of our team.”
Here’s a closer look at the new uniforms, which include a nod to the old skyline logo on the Statement uniforms.
You want a commercial for the new look? You got it.
The Nuggets will look sharp next season, we’ll see if they can carry that new look into the postseason.
