The NBA it is home to some of the rarest athletes in all of professional sports.
Players come from all over the world to join the NBA and some of the best players are from different countries.
One of these good players is Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic.
He is from Serbia and was drafted in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft.
Now “Joker” is a two-time NBA MVP and has taken the Nuggets to the NBA Finals for the first time.
When he was selected in 2014, no one thought that Jokic would turn into this big star.
But now, he’s getting recognized around the NBA for his greatness.
Minnesota Timberwolves coach Chris Finch went on The Herd to discuss Jokic’s greatness.
He talked about how Jokic always controlled the floor and made his teammates feel better.

Jokic is the number one player who makes all the right plays.
He is a triple-double and seems to be getting the respect he deserves in the league.
Finch focused on Jokic in the first quarter as the Nuggets beat the Timberwolves in five games.
Denver has never been eliminated from the playoffs.
Entering the playoffs as the number one seed, the Nuggets were not expected to win the West.
But they dominated the rally and much of it was due to the play of Jokic.
This Nuggets team is very good and now appears to be the favorite to win their first NBA championship.
