Nikola Jokic became the first player in NBA history to record 2K points, 1K rebounds, and 500 assists in a season.

Through the 2020–21 season, Jokić’s career averages are 18.5 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 6.0 assists per game.

Jokić is considered by many to be the greatest passing big man in NBA history.

As a playmaker, Jokić uses his size and vision to set up his teammates for scores, often through various no looks and special deliveries.

His techniques, particularly his one-handed passes, have drawn comparisons to those of a water polo player.

Playing at a slow and deliberate pace, Jokić often pauses upon receiving the ball to survey the floor for defensive mistakes and potential openings.

In addition to his playmaking ability, Jokić is also a versatile scorer, capable of effectively finishing in the paint and hitting jump shots from midrange and the three-point arc.

During his MVP season, Jokić shot .566 from the field and .388 from 3-point range.

His signature move, the “Sombor Shuffle” (coined by Nuggets play-by-play announcer Chris Marlowe after Jokić’s hometown of Sombor), involves jumping off his right foot before launching a high-arching fadeaway.

Jokić developed the move during his recovery from an ankle injury in 2017.

The unorthodox move is difficult to contest and has drawn comparisons to Dirk Nowitzki’s one-legged fadeaway.
