Aaron Gordon says Nikola Jokic is a ‘basketball genius’

Jokic is among the top favorites for the MVP award

Denver Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon talks about his frontcourt teammate Nikola Jokic.

“He’s a basketball genius. That’s really what it comes down to. He’s playing it like it’s chess, seeing it three steps ahead.”

“I’m starting to learn that you’ve always got to keep your eye on him when he has the ball because he’ll find you. He’ll find you. Even if you don’t think you’re open, you’re open. He’ll pass you open, which is dope. It’s just amazing to play with somebody like that who can actually pass you open and sees the game (like that), and who likes to pass and enjoys passing”.

The serbian big man this year is averaging 26.1 points, 11 rebounds and 8.8 assist, shooting 56% from the field, 42% from long range and 85% from the foul line.
