Nikola Jokic needs to watch his own passing highlights ASAP
The Denver Nuggets routed the Oklahoma City Thunder during Saturday night’s matchup. After winning by 30 points, superstar center, Nikola Jokic was asked about how fun it is to dominate the game with his passing abilities. Jokic gave an answer most were not expecting.
Asked Nikola Jokic how much fun it is to dominate a game w/ his passing: "I don't know, do I dominate with (my passing)? The word dominate, a couple people really dominate the game, you know? … Do I dominate with the passing? I don't think so."

It’s hard to tell if Jokic is kidding around or not. His passing highlights can be easily found on Twitter. Maybe his Nuggets teammates should sit him down and show him some clips of himself making incredible passes. He’s been doing this his entire career.
Nikola Jokic’s passing is still insane.

Nikola Jokic is a rare gem, as he’s a seven-foot athlete that can pass and dribble the ball like a point guard. This season alone, he’s averaging 26.7 points, 8.5 assists, and 10.9 rebounds per game for Denver. He’s the best player on his team and is arguably the best center in the entire league not named Joel Embiid.
His passing abilities are uncanny. It’s what makes him unique. No other center in the league is capable of dishing the ball to their teammates the way Jokic can. The NBA is a different league these days, as everyone has to have the ability to play the perimeter to be considered one of the top players in the NBA. The Nuggets stud has found his groove operating from anywhere on the floor, and it doesn’t seem like he’s going to lose it anytime soon.
Even so, the Nuggets currently find themselves in eighth place in the Western Conference. With how good Nikola Jokic is, Denver needs to find a way to improve their game, as they’re facing a possibility of missing out on the playoffs this year. Look for the Denver Nuggets to claim their second victory in a row on Monday night against the Chicago Bulls.
