Jokic grew up watching the likes of Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki , Boris Diaw and Shaquille O’Neal. But it’s one of the great things about the NBA game, guys like him that have the size and skill and know how to use leverage and angles and their vision and senses can be All-Star-caliber players.”

Lowe caught the eye as a crunchtime scorer in addition to his passing skills, as opposing teams have no answer to the Serbs, especially at the end of games seem to be. This reminded the journalist of Nowitzki and his achievements, especially in the 2011 playoffs.

Nowitzki, 42, responded to this comparison via text message: "Damn it. That's a compliment. I wish I had his skills," wrote Nowitzki. "His passing game is so good, that's a joke. Unfortunately, my goal was always to score and not pass."

Nowitzki had an average of 2.4 assists over the course of his 21-year career, and in 2007/08 he had an average of four assists in the playoffs. Both are good values ​​for great players, but Jokic is much more of a preparer. In the last two seasons he put on an average of 7 assists and is already considered one of the best passing bigs in history.

The two-time all-star has not yet won a title like Nowitzki. In the ongoing playoffs, Jokic and the Nuggets are working to change that. X1
