Check out highlights from the Denver Nuggets championship parade
It was 47 years of pent-up energy unleashed as Nuggets flooded downtown Denver for one wild street party to celebrate the Denver Nuggets’ first-ever franchise championship.
Even the person most reluctant to be there — Finals MVP Nikola Jokić, who found out in his postgame media interview that the parade was Thursday and said, “No. I need to go home.” — was glad he was there.
Downtown Denver was overflowing with fans celebrating the Nuggets on Thursday, and Christian Braun — who won an NCAA title with Kansas a season ago and then an NBA title with the Nuggets — was hyping up the crowd.
Few were enjoying the moment more than Aaron Gordon, who had his cigar and was soaking it all in.
It was a wild day, the kind the Nuggets would like more of.
“I’ve got a crazy idea,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “Let’s do this again. I want to be on another float. I want to be at another parade and do this thing again.”
