The NBA Season tips off on October 24th, beginning with a matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets.
As reigning NBA Champions, the Nuggets will have an opportunity to raise their banner during pregame festivities.
With less than a month to go until this game, the Nuggets are working hard to reestablish team chemistry.
While basketball is certainly on their agenda, teams tend to partake in other activities hoping to build their bond.
The Nuggets official Twitter account recently shared a video of their top players throwing a football around.

Nikola Jokic was spotted at the beginning of the clip, running a route and catching a well-placed ball from one of his teammates.
Jamal Murray was also a big part of this video, throwing several passes before talking about his “grade school days,” seemingly as a former quarterback.
While this video allowed the Nuggets to try their hands at another sport, they now turn their attention to the Lakers.
This opening night matchup has garnered significant media attention as of late.
There will likely be extra emotion building up to this game for a few reasons.
Raising their new championship banner will be a big moment for the Nuggets, especially since it is the first in franchise history.
The Lakers have also made a big deal out of this matchup, providing an additional layer to this game.
It appears that the Lakers are angry about getting swept in last year’s Western Conference Finals, hoping to get revenge in this season opener.NEXT: Michael Malone Reacts To Lakers' Comments About Nuggets
