Denver Nuggets: Dikembe Mutombo (BEST)
Yes, Dikembe Mutombo gets this nod over Carmelo Anthony, because “Mount Mutombo” never demanded to be traded out of one of the most beautiful cities in the nation (especially because of a spouse who demanded to be in one of the major media markets). While on the Nuggets, Mutombo was a 3-time All-Star and Defensive Player of the Year.
On top of his signature finger wag after making blocks, Mutombo will always be remembered for laying on the court and letting out his scream of job when his 8th-seeded Nuggets beat the #1-seeded Seattle SuperSonics in the 1994 NBA Playoffs.
Denver Nuggets: Nikoloz Tskitishvili (WORST)
The Nuggets rolled the dice with the number five pick in the 2002 draft, selecting Georgian (the country, not the state) prospect Nikoloz Tskitishvili, and Skita was one of the biggest busts in recent memory.
He never even averaged four points a game, and he didn’t even play double digit minutes any year after his rookie season. Tskitishvili shot 30% for his career — not a typo — and was out of the league entirely in four years.
