Gregg Popovich says Nikola Jokic is ‘like a reincarnation of Larry Bird’

The Nuggets are third in the Western Conference with 45 wins over 68 games

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich talks with the media after the loss against the Denver Nuggets.

Popovich spends important words especially for Nikola Jokic, who ended the game with 25 points, 4 rebounds and 11 assist.

“Jokic, he’s like a reincarnation of Larry Bird. He does everything. He’s amazing. They were great.”

“He’s stepping out and making 3’s. He’s rebounding the ball, there should be an NBA rule, you can’t tap it to yourself. He’s Moses Malone. You know, he’s down there and he jumps about a quarter of an inch, then he taps it two or three times and then he gets it and he lays it back in.”

“It’s not just luck. He does it all the time. He is great on the board, he’s obviously maybe the best big man passer in the league. If not, then close to it. He’s a pretty special player.”
