Yeah the Nuggets are easy to root for. They kind of follow the Gregg Poppovich mold in some ways: get a bunch of role players that play within themselves and can do a couple of things at a high level--with the right mix, you can eventually field a complete team.
The only problem is, can that team make it all the way? Overwhelming talent tends to trump all in a seven game series, as Miami and OKC proved last year.

In the end, you have to have a player that can create points either by scoring or assisting in crunch time against a set defense.
The Mavs beat the overwhelmingly talented Heat with mostly a collection of role players and one true star who was one of the best crunch time scorers in the game at the time. So it only takes one if you've got everything else clicking.
Who is that guy going to be for Denver? I don't see anyone.
