After reading Andrew's post about why he is a Nuggets fan, I felt really old. I remember going to the Auditorium Arena to see the Denver Rockets. One nice thing about that place was that no matter where you sat, you weren't that far from the game. I remember Beck's crazy hook shot, Julius Keye blocking shots (even on Dr. J), Warren (Armstrong) Jabali, Dave Robisch, Ralph Simpson (maybe his number should have been retired too) and many others. I saw Dr. J make a move at the Auditorium Arena that puts to shame anything he ever did for the Sixers.
Ralph Simpson came to a basketball camp I attended and really helped my shot. He was a class act.
I'm a Nuggets fan because I grew up here and I've always been one to support the local team.
