Nikola Jokic believes Marc Gasol deserves more credit for his contributions on the floor, despite his struggles with the Lakers.

Jokic said people forget who Gasol is and praised the Spanish center for his accomplishments.

“I think we all forget who Marc Gasol is. The guy who won two defensive players of the year,” Jokic said, via Mike Singer of the Denver Post.

Gasol (a 2019 NBA champion with the Raptors) is struggling with his role this season and has limited playing time. However, he made it clear his only goal is to help the Lakers go all the way and repeat.
