With Free Agency and trades at the forefront of current NBA news, there is no shortage of opinions on what the landscape of the NBA will look like for the 2018-2019 season. The Nuggets have made some bold moves as of late, and I’m hopeful that they’re heading in the right direction as a team. With this week’s departure of Wilson Chandler, the Nuggets are slowly offloading pieces of the old roster to make room for the new (and hopefully improved) lineup.
As things develop over the coming weeks I will be compiling my overall off season performance grade, but in the meantime, it’s the weekend.
This week, I thought I’d keep it light hearted and present some interesting, but wholly unimportant facts about the year some of our 2018-2019 Denver Nuggets were born ranking them in order of youngest to oldest.
