During the early 1990s, the team was led by center Dikembe Mutombo from Georgetown University, who quickly became the team’s leading force on both offense and defense. Starting in 2003, the signing of NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony and Allen Iverson formed an unstoppable duo. The two powerhouse players led the Nuggets to a 50-win season in 2007-2008.
