Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic joins LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady and Kevin Durant in impressive feat

Denver Nuggets All-Star big man Nikola Jokic is establishing himself as one of the best players of all-time, as he’s accomplished a feat that only LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady and Kevin Durant can say they have done.

Nikola Jokic is one of only five players in NBA history to tally at least 1,000 assists, 200 blocks and 200 made 3-pointers before celebrating his 24th birthday, joining James, Bryant, McGrady and Durant.

T-Mac is already in the Hall of Fame, while LeBron, Kobe and KD are guaranteed to be there one day.

Jokic is so much more than just a scorer, as he’s probably the best passing big man in the NBA today. The Nuggets run a lot of their offensive sets through Jokic, who is sort of like a point-center.

The 24-year-old is averaging 20.4 points, 10.6 rebounds and 7.7 assists per game this season for Denver while shooting 50.5 percent from the field, 30.8 percent from beyond the arc and 84.9 percent from the free-throw line. Jokic has 39 double-doubles and 12 triple-doubles on the season.

No one outside of Denver could have seen Jokic turning into this superstar talent when he was selected with the 41st overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. It’s incredible how versatile he is for a 7-footer.
