Former NBA coach George Karl heaped praise to Nikola Jokic and Steph Curry after the Nuggets defeated the Heat in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Karl, who coached Denver through 2005-2013, thinks that the two superstars have transformed the game of basketball the most over the last 15 years.

“Curry and Jokic are the two most transformative players of the past 15 years – a 6’2 PG who shoots better than anyone before and a 7’ foot giant who distributes the ball as well as the best guards,” Karl tweeted, adding “I wouldn’t have believed these unicorns existed a couple decades ago!”

Jokic debuted in the NBA Finals with a triple-double of 27 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists.
