After an incredible regular season in which the Denver Nuggets dominated competition in the Western Conference and lost just seven games at home, Nikola Jokic and company are three wins away from the franchise’s first NBA title.

While it’s hard not to love this Nuggets team led by arguably one of the best passers in league history, Denver hasn’t been without criticism, with a former player speaking out about his former team playing in the NBA Finals.

Veteran guard Austin Rivers has rebounded in the league as he has played for seven different teams in his career so far.

In the 2022-23 season, Rivers adapted for the Minnesota Timberwolves after playing with the Nuggets for two seasons, and he’s not happy Denver is in the Finals via NBA Retweet.

Obviously, Rivers is upset about the missed opportunity to play for the Nuggets when the team was healthy and firing at full steam, because the first thing he mentions is not being able to play under Jamal Murray.

Ironically, the Rivers Timberwolves were the first team the Nuggets sent to the playoffs, with Denver crushing Minnesota in five games to advance to the second round.

So not only did Rivers miss out on that potential title run with the Nuggets by a season, but he also saw his playoff run come to an end at the hands of Jokic and company in convincing fashion.

As a veteran journeyman, Rivers is no stranger to changing teams and seeing them succeed, but it sure must be painful to watch, especially with his window of opportunity closing.
