For a guy who gets his sports news from NPR, even this intrepid fashion editor found himself wishing he’d been watching the epic Denver Nuggets versus Miami Heat match-up last night. Sounds like I missed a real nail-biter!

To celebrate the Nuggets’ first-ever NBA Championship in its 47-year history in the league, New Era Cap (the official cap of the National Basketball Association), has launched its NBA Champions collection featuring the team’s iconography. From the hats the players wore while celebrating on the court to a special edition championship side-patch cap and new apparel styles, fans can rep the Nuggets and hype their incredible season in style.

The New Era 2022-23 NBA Champions Locker Room 9Fifty is a black cap that features “22-23 NBA Champions” in red, white and blue embroidery on the front of the crown with an applique Denver logo set on the left. The Larry O’Brien Trophy is embroidered on the rear of the cap above the snap back closure.

The NBA Champions Side Patch Collection is a team-colored cap featuring Denver’s primary logo on the front with a woven NBA Champions side patch on the right. Available in a single-team colored or two-toned team colors, this cap is available in five different profiles – 59FIFTY, 9FIFTY, 39THIRTY, 9FORTY and 9TWENTY.

“They came into the NBA Playoffs as the top seed in the Western Conference, and the Nuggets maintained their dominance, delivering to Denver its first NBA Championship,” said Todd Sokolowski, Director of Licensed Products at New Era Cap. “Nuggets fans have waited 47 years for this moment. We’re excited to provide a collection to celebrate Denver history with an iconic style that is fit for glory.”
