VIDEO: Nikola Jokic gets hilariously impersonated by PJ Dozier
The Denver Nuggets haven’t made big moves in the offseason, choosing to largely stay pat with the roster that had another strong run last season. But that doesn’t mean Nikola Jokic and company aren’t putting in the work.
In fact, it appears Jokic is already back at it, shooting hoops at the Nuggets’ practice facility. But of course, being the fun-loving gentle giant that he is, the reigning MVP is also making sure to have some fun with his teammates. After all, all work and no play makes The Joker a dull boy.
Nuggets guard PJ Dozier, who had a solid campaign last season, made a funny impersonation of Jokic, imitating his slow moves in the low post and his shooting form.

As usual, Jokic was a good sport, laughing throughout Dozier’s antics. It is exactly this light-hearted personality that makes the versatile big man from Serbia one of the most likable NBA stars in recent years.
Nikola Jokic has already lost even more weight in the offseason, showing he is hell-bent on leading the Nuggets into an even deeper run in the NBA Playoffs. With most teams strengthening their roster, the relatively unchanged Nuggets will be even more challenged.
But with Jamal Murray expected to return, Michael Porter Jr. continuing his ascent, and a supporting cast of Dozier, Aaron Gordon, Monte Morris, Will Barton, and Facundo Campazzo, the Nuggets will be no pushovers.
