Sometimes journalists can get repetitive with their questions. That appeared to be the case when Nikola Jokic was asked about his teammate Kentavious Caldwell-Pope after Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

“I answered this question 17 times for real,” the Serbian superstar said. “KCP is great. He’s a champion. He’s a winner. He knows what to do. He’s a professional. He’s vocal. He’s tough. So he knows what’s his role and he’s doing it the best in the world.”

The 30-year-old shooting guard, who won a championship in 2020 with the Lakers, beating his current team in conference finals, had a big game with 21 points in 36 minutes of play.
