In a recent media conference, New York Mets manager Buck Showalter couldn’t resist showering Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic with well-deserved admiration. With back-to-back MVP titles and impressive achievements, Jokic’s brilliance is finally receiving widespread recognition, particularly after his instrumental role in propelling the Nuggets to the coveted NBA Finals. Praise for the basketball maestro is transcending boundaries, reaching unexpected corners of the sports universe, including the realms of baseball.

Showalter praised Jokic’s flexibility after the Nuggets’ 104-93 victory against the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. With few shots in the first half, the Serb began the game as more of a distributor. With his passing, he provided assists while dismantling the Heat’s defense.

Showalter mentions, “How about that center, is he any good or what? “I love the fact that he hardly scored in the first quarter and was still a key in the first quarter and maybe the game. What a lesson.” (an article from sportskeeda.com)

Nemanja and Strahinja, unwavering pillars of support, accompany the Nuggets on their away battles, exuding fierce loyalty towards their sibling. In times of confrontation, they fearlessly confront adversaries who dare to engage with Jokic on the court. A heated clash arose when former Miami Heat player Marcus Morris engaged in a physical altercation with Jokic, sparking a fiery feud with the devoted brothers.

Nikola Jokic transformed his game in Game 2 as the Heat adjusted their defense, allowing him to focus on scoring. With an impressive 41 points on 16-of-28 shooting, Jokic’s passing opportunities dwindled to four assists. Despite his efforts, the Heat held a narrow 111-108 victory.
