Despite chasing that well-deserved bag from the Indiana Pacers this offseason, Bruce Brown will always consider himself a Nugget for life.
Nearly two months after he decided to leave Denver, Brown finally penned down a heartfelt farewell post in his Instagram on Tuesday, thanking the Nuggets organization and its fans for an unforgettable one-year run they had in 2022-23.
Brown was welcomed with open arms in Denver from last year when no other team wanted to have him. As such, his landing in the Mile High City couldn’t be more of a perfect situation for him as he was able to furnish himself as one of the best role players in the league.
The 27-year-old further unlocked his skill set by playing alongside reigning league MVP Nikola Jokic, and he was able to tally highly productive numbers of 11.5 markers, 4.1 boards, and 3.4 assists during the regular season. As the postseason time hit, his ball handling, improved shooting, and defensive versatility emerged as crucial points in the Nuggets’ successful quest for their maiden title.
Brown has already circled the Jan. 14 next year as the said date marks his first return to Denver after their magical run. From there, he can also officially claim his championship ring that will forever prove his indelible contributions to the franchise’s first title success.
