The Denver Nuggets unveiled new uniforms Wednesday. When the black curtains covering the mannequins finally came off during halftime of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, the group gathered at Dairy Block in LoDo got a look at some fresh colors and familiar numbers: 14, 27 and 15.

It was no coincidence that the Nuggets' rebranding effort featured jerseys belonging to Gary Harris, Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic. After years of painful rebuilding, the Nuggets are hoping that 23-and-under group can help them finally get back into the postseason.

"Gary, Jamal and Nikola in particular have seen all the new looks," Nuggets president Josh Kroenke said. "They’re really excited to get back next fall.”
