At the age of 26, he continues to dominate as one of the NBA’s top centers.
After all, he’s the first player in NBA history to record a 40/10/10/3/3 game.
To be the first player in a league’s history to accomplish that is already a highly impressive feat.
But Jokic is far from done and continues to prove why he may be the best center in the game today.
There have been five triple-doubles in the NBA since the end of the All-Star break, and Jokic has three of them.
Last night against the Golden State Warriors, Jokic guided the Denver Nuggets to a 131-124 victory with yet another triple-double, scoring 32 points, grabbing 15 rebounds, and dishing out 13 assists.

Putting The League On Notice
To have more triple-doubles than the entire rest of the league since the All-Star break is an amazing accomplishment.
Jokic continues to impress with his ability to pass, shoot, and rebound.
It’s rare for a big man to be able to do all three, but that clearly hasn’t stopped him.
For him to do this day in and day out already has him in legendary company.
This level of play certainly has to at least put him in the conversation for MVP.
This most recent triple-double is his second in as many games, as he put up 46 points against the New Orleans Pelicans the night before, while grabbing 12 boards and picking up 11 assists.
He has put the league on notice with his spectacular play, and it is hard to imagine him slowing down anytime soon, especially with the Nuggets on absolute tear as of late.NEXT: Nikola Jokic Once Again Proves He Is The Rightful MVP
