If you love a fast-paced game with a lot of offense and displays of incredible athletic abilities, you’re probably a fan of basketball. In Denver, the professional NBA team to root for is the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets play at the Pepsi Center and are represented by domestic and international players from France, Italy and Russia.
Living in Denver gives you many opportunities to watch some great hockey games. Every winter a new season of the National Hockey League begins and Denverites rejoice in watching the Colorado Avalanche in hopes of bringing the glory of a Stanley Cup (the national championship) back to Denver. Additionally, Denver is the host of another nationally-recognized hockey team—the University of Denver Pioneers.
