Nikola Jokic is a phenomenally gifted player who can make all kinds of insane passes. Please take another moment to appreciate his brilliance.
Nikola Jokic, a member of the Denver Nuggets, is one of the best basketball players in the world. Their star center has abilities that are nearly supernatural. He’s a difficult opponent to match up against because of his stature. Even if you ignore Jokic’s stature and strength, his skill set is still quite outstanding.
Like the fact that he’s capable of making some incredibly strange and fantastic passes that few other players would dare to attempt.
Check out this pass from the Nuggets’ rout of the Portland Trail Blazers in the second quarter.
Without hesitation, Jokic screams the ball across the court, past two defenders, and into the hands of his teammate, who somehow does not explode into flames as he catches the pass.
Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets makes an incredible pass against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Unfortunately for the Nuggets and basketball fans everywhere, nothing came of that pass in the end. Monte Morris’s ensuing shot went wide, which is terrible, but it’s hardly the end of the world. Things take place.
Even yet, we got to see a pass that arguably shouldn’t have been attempted in the first place. Seriously. This is a crazy pass.
The NBA is chock-full of amazing athletes. At the highest level of basketball, there are a plethora of tremendously gifted players. Even with all of the talent in the NBA, it only seems like a handful of players would be capable of attempting a pass like this.
