Denver Nuggets win their first NBA title

Denver became NBA champion for the first time in its history on Monday by winning the final 4 to 1 at the expense of Miami. The Nuggets, carried by their leader Nikola Jokic, big favorite to be named MVP of this series, won (94-89) during this fifth hard-fought match on their floor.

For the Heat, crowned in 2006, 2012 and 2013, this failure is the fourth in seven opportunities after 2011, 2014 and 2020.

The Nuggets’ first NBA championship title bears the seal of Finals MVP Nikola Jokic, scorer Jamal Murray and coach Michael Malone, who over eight years have been able to grow, overcome setbacks and build success together.

Real estate developer passionate about sports, the American billionaire Stan Kroenke, owner of the club, has patiently built an empire which includes Arsenal, the Los Angeles Rams and the Denver Nuggets, new NBA champions, clubs that he has registered over the long term, impervious to the dictates of the immediate result.
