SAD NEWS: A rumore is now trending as NBA announces the death of Celtic all time Legend dead Larry Birds RIP

Nearly everyone is blown away by the power and skill of Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets.

Millions of fans are astonished by what Jokic does during every single game, but they aren’t the only ones.

On SiriusXM NBA Radio, Nuggets player Aaron Gordon called Jokic a “straight master” of basketball and compared him to Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird.

“He’s Larry but taller, bigger, and stronger,” Gordon said.

“He’s a straight master when it comes to basketball”

Gordon spoke about Jokic’s ability to read the floor, find teammates, and make plays.

These are some of the features that many people praise often when speaking about Jokic.

Despite being one of the biggest centers in the league, Jokic moves with grace and speed.

He also seemingly plays every position on the team, passing and shooting like a guard while defending and clogging up the paint like a forward or center.

He is big, tall, strong, and sometimes unstoppable.

Jokic has been outstanding in the playoffs so far, averaging 28.2 points in the team’s five games against the Los Angeles Lakers.

He has also led the league in rebounds (16.2) and assists (9.8).

Now Jokic will have to show his Bird-like abilities again with an even tougher opponent: the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The second round is set to start on Saturday and the Timberwolves are probably going to put up more of a fight than the Lakers did.

Jokic will have multiple responsibilities in the games ahead.

Not only will he have to score a lot, but he will also have to work seamlessly with his teammates and be the talented floor general that he is.

Jokic will likely be earning his third MVP trophy soon and if he keeps playing as he has, he could also earn his second Finals MVP too.
