For three years now the Denver Nuggets have made an annual visit to watch a Unified Eagles Basketball game. This tradition started when former Nuggets player Chris “Birdman” Andersen, now with the Miami Heat came in 2011. Ever since then the Nuggets are eager to come back to Heritage and attend a Unified game. Last year players from the team included Kenneth Faired, Timofey Mosgov, Kosta Koufous, and Corey Brewer.
“We want to come back every year if we can, it’s one of the first events we schedule,” says Doug Fulton, Denver Nuggets Community Relations Coordinator. “It’s everything that’s right about sports.”
