While the Nuggets struggled to reach the NBA Finals multiple times, they finally achieved their dream of winning the NBA Championship in the 2023 playoffs.

The dynamic duo of Jokic and Jamal Murray, under the coaching of Michael Malone, led the Nuggets to their first NBA Championship in franchise history.

Considering the Nuggets are the reigning champions of the league, it’s no surprise that they are one of the favorites to win it all this season as well.

Well, according to Malone, the Nuggets have the best starting lineup in the entire NBA, as revealed via Legion Hoops on Twitter.

“We have the best five-man starting unit in the league,” Malone said.

It’s always good to show confidence in your team, and Malone has never been shy about praising his players.

Malone’s constant praise is one of the biggest motivators for the Nuggets, and it also helped them in winning the 2023 NBA Championship.

As for the 2023-24 NBA season, the Nuggets may not be the top seed in the Western Conference, but they aren’t far away from it either.

The Nuggets currently flaunt a 36-19 record as they hold the fourth seed in the West heading into the NBA All-Star break.

Considering Denver is just three games behind the top-seeded Minnesota Timberwolves, the team has a great chance at retaining its NBA Championship once it’s all said and done.

The likes of Jokic and Murray will undoubtedly play a crucial role in making that dream come true for the franchise.
