NBA veteran guard Goran Dragic talked about how Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic dominate the league despite lacking the athleticism of most of their opponents and why some may find that kind of annoying.
“His [Jokic] IQ is such that he’s messing with them there,” Jokic said in an interview with Sportal. “Americans are pushing their way forward through marketing and that’s all normal but when you put everything on the floor, it’s a different story. Jokic is not fast, he doesn’t jump and that gets up their noses, how can a man play like this? They [NBA players] are all in good shape, you need to have six percent body fat, you need to jump… And I think it gets on their nerves, how can Jokic and Luka play like this?”
