Former Los Angeles Lakers guard Troy Daniels regards his teammate Nikola Jokic as the best big in the NBA. Daniels started the season with the Lakers, but was waived on March 1. He had the chance to play alongside Anthony Davis, but picked the Serbian center as the best big man in the leacge.

“He’s the best big in the league,” Daniels said about Jokic, per Harrison Wind of DNVR. This season, The Joker is averaging 20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game.

Jokic lost 20-25 pounds since the NBA shutdown and is expected to be even more versatile when the season resumes in Orlando.
