Nikola Jokic has once again proven he’s such a likable guy with his latest comments on LeBron James.
Leave it to Nikola Jokic to own the day with some amazing quotes. Seriously, as good as Jokic is on the court, we can always depend on him to deliver a funny jab or quote. That was once again the case on Wednesday.
Jokic was asked about the similarities between him and LeBron James. As you might have already been able to guess, the Denver Nuggets big man provided an answer that will surely bring a smile to your face.
Nikola Jokic comparing himself to LeBron James is absolute gold
It’s almost impossible to not laugh after seeing what Jokic had to say. To start off, he says the speed is there for the two players. Get out of town, Joker! The day we see the 6-foot-11 standout sprinting down the court with the same velocity as James, it will be time for the Los Angeles Lakers superstar to retire.
Not only that, Jokic even had to poke fun at his vertical leap, joking he isn’t sure if James can even jump as high as he can. Oh my. To make things even better, Jokic even had to close things out by saying he was only joking. Yeah dude, everyone on the planet knows you’re not being serious.
James will probably crack a smile himself once he sees Jokic’s comments. Hey, we could always settle this by having the two face off in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest during the All-Star Game next year. Something tells us James would win with ease.
Jokic can clown around all he wants, but at the end of the day, no one will ever be able to match James’ athleticism on the hardwood. At the same time, it might be tough for anyone to match Jokic’s comedic genius.
