The Denver Nuggets started in 1966 as the Denver Larks, a charter member of the American Basketball Association. The “Larks” name was changed to “Rockets” before the start of the franchise’s first season, 1967-68. Following the ABA 1973-74 season the team changed its name to the Nuggets in anticipation of an ABA-NBA merger (Houston had joined the NBA as the Rockets the same year the Denver Rockets entered the ABA). The Nugget name was the winner in a name-the-team contest and was taken from the name of the National Basketball League Denver Nuggets, who played one season (1948-49) before the NBL merged with the Basketball Association of America to form the National Basketball Association in 1950.
The Nuggets were one of four American Basketball Association teams to survive the 1976 NBA – ABA merger. The others were the New York Nets, the San Antonio Spurs and the Indiana Pacers. The Nuggets made it to the final ABA Finals championship series, losing to the New York Nets in 6 games.
