Nuggets, finally a title contender

After seasons of injuries hurting the Nuggets, their injured players finally returns for the upcoming 2022-23 NBA season. For the past seasons, Nuggets failed to be a title contender, following the injuries of their stars. Additionally, even if Nikola Jokic won the MVP award for two seasons, it is still not enough. As they begin a brand new season, guys like Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr, finally returns for this squad. Moreover, there are also new faces that can surely help the Nuggets to reach their goal. With the return of Murray and Porter Jr., many are hopeful they can finally win a title for the franchise.

As this team is finally whole again, there is finally ray of hope for the Nuggets. Their top three players are finally playing together to be able to take home the NBA title this season. A healthy line-up for Denver means a threat to all other teams out there, especially Nikola Jokic. For someone who won the NBA MVP for two consecutive seasons, you are really something. As he lifted his squad last season, Jokic can finally be relieved since two of the team’s top players return. As Murray and Porter a good to go, the Nuggets finally have their own “Big 3” version.

In April 2021, Jamal Murray tore his ACL, which kept him on the sideline since then, failing to help the Nuggets. Before he get injured, he averaged 24.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 5.2 assists. He actually played better than their season in the bubble, where his defense improved big time too. When the team acquired Aaron Gordon, Murray only played with him for five games. In those five games, they won four, and on the fifth game, where Murray got injured.

Porter Jr. on the other hand is an expert defensively so he is a very great addition for this squad. His greatest share for this squad is rebounding both defensively and offensively. Safe to say, the Nuggets have a bright future ahead of them.
