Nikola Jokic is undoubtly one of the biggest stars in the league, especially after winning the MVP last season. The “Joker” has been on a tear, being among the candidates to win the award again, alongside the likes of Kevin Durant and Steph Curry.
In a recent interview, the Serbian bigman claimed that Steph Curry is the most impressive player to watch in the NBA. Jokic dished a huge praise for Curry, who is really dominant this season.
Q: “Who, in your opinion, is the most impressive player in the league. If you were to pay to watch someone, who would you choose?”
Jokic: “For sure it’s Steph Curry. I say that to pretty much everyone, if you don’t like watching him play, you probably don’t like watching basketball as a sport altogether. He plays in such a lucid way I sometimes catch myself thinking: “Look at what this guy is doing”, but my god his shots just keep falling. He pulls up from such distances I feel like my shots wouldn’t even reach from that far away. Also Durant, I feel like he’s the best offensive player in the league currently, you can’t really guard him. There are no players in the league who can guard him.”
Curry is not the most athletic, strong and bigger athlete in the court, however, he’s a force to reckon with his unbelievable shooting and his amazing handles that help him penetrate defenses.
As a two-time MVP and three-time champion, Curry is terrorizing opponents and he’s admittedly changed the game of basketball.
The same, of course, can be said for Jokic, who is the most complete point-center we see in the league with his incredible vision and his ability to create plays for himself and his teammates.
