Michael Malone has made a bold statement regarding the Denver Nuggets’ status in the NBA. Since Nikola Jokic emerged as a star player, the Nuggets have solidified their position as one of the Western Conference’s top teams. Despite facing challenges in reaching the NBA Finals in previous seasons, they realized their championship aspirations in the 2023 playoffs. Guided by the tandem of Jokic and Jamal Murray and under Malone’s leadership, the Nuggets clinched their maiden NBA Championship.

Predicting the Denver Nuggets' starting-5 for the 2020-21 NBA season

Given their status as the reigning champions, it comes as no surprise that the Nuggets are considered among the favorites to win the title again this season. Malone recently asserted that the Nuggets boast the most formidable starting lineup in the entire league, as reported by Legion Hoops on Twitter. Malone’s unwavering confidence in his team is a source of motivation for the players, a factor that played a significant role in their championship victory in 2023.

While the Nuggets may not currently hold the top seed in the Western Conference for the 2023-24 NBA season, their 36-19 record positions them as the fourth seed heading into the NBA All-Star break. With only a three-game difference separating them from the top-seeded Minnesota Timberwolves, the Nuggets are well within reach of defending their NBA Championship title.

The contributions of key players like Jokic and Murray will undoubtedly be pivotal in realizing the franchise’s championship aspirations once again.
