Nicknamed “The Joker”, Nikola Jokic currently plays as a center for the Denver Nuggets in the National Basketball Association. He is a four-time NBA all-star and has also been named to the all-NBA team thrice, in addition to bagging the NBA most valuable player award for the 2020-21 NBA edition. Regarded as the best center in the league currently, Jokic is the perfect example when it comes to listing the ingredients required to make a perfect NBA center in the modern period.

Not only are his playmaking skills on point, Jokic has a knack for scoring, which has only worked in favour of the Serbian’s career so far as he is an absolute beast of a player when on offense. This is not it, Jokic’s court vision gives him an edge over other players when it comes to making passes to the open man, which ultimately result in easy buckets for his team.

The current holder of the MVP award, Nikola Jokic also boasts of being the first center to clinch the award after Shaquille O’Neal in the year 2000. Jovic was born on 19th February, 1995 in Sombor, Serbia to Branislav Jokic and his wife whose identity remains unknown.

NBA and National debut

Denver Nuggets: It was on June 26th, 2014 when Nikola Jokic was picked 41st overall by the Denver Nuggets in the 2014 NBA draft. The first game of the Adriatic League saw him guide the Nuggets to a 103-98 win over MZT Skopje.

National debut: On 24th May, 2019, Jokic made it official through an announcement that he would represent the Serbian senior side at the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup. Though Serbia were the favourites to win the tournament, they were knocked out at the hands of Argentina in the quarter-finals.
