The Denver Nuggets shocked many people by winning the 2022-23 NBA Championship.
Led by Nikola Jokic, the Nuggets utterly dominated the league last season. But apart from Jokic, there were several other players who contributed to the Nuggets’ successful run in the playoffs.
Jamal Murray gets credit for being the secondary star to Jokic, but Aaron Gordon also played a vital role in the Nuggets’ success in the 2023 playoffs.
Speaking of Gordon, the NBA’s official Twitter account posted an image wishing Aaron Gordon a happy birthday.
