Since 1999, the Ball Arena has been one of the hubs of pro sports and entertainment in Denver. The venue is the home of the Denver Nuggets in the NBA, as well as the Colorado Avalanche of the NHL. Fans who have attended games at the Ball Arena have witnessed some of the most entertaining teams in the recent histories of basketball and hockey, with both teams who play at this venue having success during their time there.
In basketball, the Denver Nuggets spent time as one of the top teams in the NBA during their time at the Ball Arena, led by Carmelo Anthony. Denver drafted Anthony third in the draft, one spot after Darko Milicic, and were rewarded for making that pick with a trip to the Western Conference Finals in 2009. That Nuggets team featured multiple players who ended up winning NBA championships, including the sharp shooting JR Smith and Chris "Birdman" Andersen.
The Colorado Avalanche were successful for a stretch during their time inhabiting Ball Arena as well. The Avs won the Stanley Cup in the 2000-2001 season, and were led by some of the sport's all-time great players. Joe Sakic was the big offensive threat on the team, while Patrick Roy consistently stonewalled opponents late into his career as their goaltender. Ray Bourque was able to put the final stamp on an illustrious NHL career by hoisting the Stanley Cup in the Ball Arena after a Game 7 victory over the New Jersey Devils.
This arena has also hosted some high-profile college sporting events, including the Frozen Four in 2008, with the four best college hockey teams in the nation squaring off for a championship. It has also been the home to NCAA Tournament games in 2016, as well as three other past tournaments. The arena is not stranger to large-scale events in music and the arts as well.
