Gregg Popovich made an interesting statement regarding the superstar of the Denver Nuggets, Nikola Jokic.

The legendary head coach of the San Antonio Spurs acknowledged Jokic as the best passing center in the NBA, perhaps in history.

“He is maybe the best big man passer in the league, if not, he’s close to it,” Popovich said, per Paul Garcia of Project Spurs.

Jokic led the Nuggets to the 126-132 victory over the Spurs, posting 25 points and a game-high 11 assists.
