Nikola Jokic is one of the best passing big men in the game today. The Serbian has been averaging close to double-digit assists per game for the past five seasons.

His teammate Bruce Brown gets to experience first hand what it is like to play alongside a passer like that.

“He makes the game extremely easy,” Brown told Bally Sports, via Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson. “He sees passes and plays before they happen. (If) I cut baseline, I didn’t know that he was going to throw the lob, and he wasn’t even looking at me and he threw it to me and I wasn’t ready for it.

“But you always have to be ready for it! I mean, you always have to be on your toes. … You always have to be ready because the pass might come when you least expect it. But he makes the game super easy.”
