The upcoming playoff clash between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets has sparked insights from LeBron James regarding Nikola Jokic’s impact on the court.

James highlighted Jokic’s multifaceted skill set, emphasizing his ability to excel as both a scorer and a passer.

“When you have the ability to score at will, it makes your passing even more dynamic. We’ve had great passers in our league history,” James said, per Jovan Buha.

“We’ve had great guys that are very unselfish. But if that’s all you can do, then teams can try to force you to score and kind of take that away. Guys like Luka, Magic in his prime, Joker, myself, if you try to take away our passing, we can still be effective. That’s what makes us so dynamic.”

This season Jokic is averaging 26.4 points, 12.4 rebounds, and 9 assists in 34.6 minutes per game.
