He didn’t win back-to-back NBA MVP trophies by accident, the guy is a monster on the floor and is doing things that few other centers have throughout the history of the league.
And it doesn’t stop with the NBA – Jokic is incredible no matter when and where he is playing.

Jokic was playing for his Serbian team in the EuroBasket tournament overseas this weekend and was unsurprisingly tremendous.
But there was one shot that was just out-of-this-world, jaw-droppingly wild.
Jokic was trying to push to the basket in the third quarter when he drew a foul from a player on the Italian team.
Although the ball was now dead, Jokic tossed it up to the basket, which it easily missed.
Yet, the ball then hit the top of the shot clock and, somehow, fell right into the net below.
The shot didn’t count of course, but it was something that caused cheers and amazement.
It was more evidence of Jokic being truly incredible.
No Joking Around
Jokic’s shot was stunning but the game ended up not going in his favor.
His team was eliminated from the tournament by Italy, which means that Jokic is now free to return home before the new season starts next month.
Jokic has been struggling to carry the team on his massive shoulders so he is beyond ready to shift some of the responsibilities to those two.
But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still expect greatness from Jokic – that’s just what he does.
