The Denver Nuggets announced that it has decided to do the unthinkable and rebrand its franchise once again. Their changes include six new distinct logos, three updated uniforms and a new 4-color scheme. In recent years the Nuggets have been remembered for its baby blue and gold uniforms, resembling college teams such as UCLA (started back when Kiki Vandeweghe changed the colors to the baby blue to match his college alma mater UCLA). So for the 2018 – 2019 season, the franchise has ditched the powder blue and fans can expect to see a new color palette of Midnight Blue, Sunshine Yellow, Flatirons Red and Skyline Blue.
On the night of game 3 of the 2018 NBA finals Cleveland Cavaliers verse Golden State Warriors, the Nuggets players, executives and coaches all gathered in downtown Denver to reveal the new uniforms and logos. Unusual timing for the announcement as the culmination of the 2018 NBA season is winding down with the hype of the Finals. While this year’s Finals have not been as exciting as the conference finals (Warriors vs Rockets and Cavs vs Celtics), making this announcement at this time shows that the Nuggets are ready for the change now.
