1949-50 Denver Nuggets (NBA)

1949-50 DENVER NUGGETS
NATIONAL BASKETBALL LEAGUE
Western Division
Finished: 11-51 .177, 6th place

The Nuggets came to the NBA in the merger after one season in the NBL. The team had existed for years as an independent professional and AAU team before joining an organized league. However, after a dismal 49-50 campaign, the team disbanded. The current Denver franchise in the NBA was named after this first pro team in the Mile High City.
