The Complete "20 Greatest Nuggets"

Issel-2
Now that my series on the 20 greatest Denver Nuggets of all time is complete I thought I would recap the 20 in one post.  Below is the 20 greatest in order from #1 to #20.  I have also included the names of a few players who almost made the top 20 but just didn’t make the cut in my eyes.  If you have a complete top 20 that you want to put in the comments, I would love to see it to compare our opinions of the greatest players ever to wear a Nuggets uniform.

Here’s the top 20 in order:

Number 1    Alex English

Number 2   David Thompson

Number 3   Dan Issel

Number 4   Dikembe Mutombo

Number 5   Carmelo Anthony

Number 6   Fat Lever

Number 7   Laphonso Ellis

Number 8   Ty Lawson

Number 9   Calvin Natt

Number 10  Andre Miller

Number 11  Kiki Vandewege

Number 12  Nene Hilario

Number 13  T.R. Dunn

Number 14  Marcus Camby

Number 15  Antonio McDeyess

Number 16  Mahmoud Abdul Rauf (Chris Jackson)

Number 17  Reggie Williams

Number 18  Michael Adams

Number 19  Walter Davis

Number 20  Juwan Howard

The following players were on the tail end of my list when I first threw it together back in June but did not make the final list of 20:

Chauncey Billups, Wayne Cooper, Kenyon Martin, Byron Beck, Bobby Jones, and Ralph Simpson.  Billups, Cooper and Martin were not on it due to my final decisions of the 18-20 spots and Beck, Jones and Simpson were not on the list because I never really saw them play.  It would have been hard to make that determination without actually having seen them in action.

I will be posting 3 stories of the greatest Head Coaches in Nuggets history in the coming days as well so look for that to start later this week.  Go ahead and give me your top 20 in the comments and I will respond and maybe we can get some fun dialogue going.
